Purox® S Grains


Purox® S has an extremely high purity, which is achieved through the use of Purox® B top quality benzoic acid, produced in the Emerald Kalama Chemical plant in the Netherlands. Its low impurity levels give Purox® S an excellent taste and odor profile, making it the right choice for the most demanding end-product requirements. In addition to its exceptional purity, Purox® S offers outstanding physical properties for consistently high performance in all your handling, production and packaging processes. Thanks to the unique shaping process, Purox® S has almost perfectly round particles with a narrow particle size distribution. The result of this tailor-made particle size distribution is an optimal combination of low dust content, high flow and excellent dissolution properties. Dust-free processing is achieved by the minimal content of small particles, and optimal dissolution performance by the absence of large particles.
