Beta Bio 10%
A clear brown liquid at room temperature, becoming more mobile when heated.
Beta Bio 10% is produced from CO2 extract of hops. It contains the natural β-acids fraction of hops formulated in alkaline water
β-acids are the most antibacterial compound found in hops. Less than 10ppm of Beta Bio 10% can inhibit the growth of most gram positive bacteria in laboratory testing. Beta acids have also been shown to inhibit the growth of certain algae at ~ 200ppm
Beta Bio 10% is typically added to molasses based feed stocks for the production of yeast or alcohol at a 50 to 100ppm dose rate
Beta Bio 10% may be dosed directly into process streams or added to solid or semi- solid products in a suitable blender. When dosing into pipelines or vessels it is best to ensure that there is vigorous mixing so as to disperse the product quickly. This can be achieved by injecting into the bulk fluid at high pressure through a suitable nozzle.
