Add to order

Sucrose is a non-toxic and non-hazardous carbohydrate that assists in the denitrification process in wastewater treatment plants. Sucrose provides a carbon source that is readily available to the facultative heterotrophic bacteria that biologically reduce nitrate (NO3) to nitrogen gas (N2). The sucrose solution supplied is a very low colour variant designed for optimal operation with UV treatment of treatment plant discharge waters.

Appropriate measures to minimise atmospheric microbial contamination should be taken as Sucrose solution can be subject to microbial deterioration. Storage life depends on storage conditions and cleaning procedures. Exposure to extended periods of cold temperatures could lead to crystallisation.
