SuperLIQ™ C5 Alpha-Amylase

SuperLIQ™ C5 Alpha-Amylase is a kind of thermostable α-amylase derived from Bacillus licheniformis and produced through submerged fermentation and refining process. It can hydrolyse α- 1,4 glycosidic bond of starch randomly. SuperLIQ™ C5 Alpha-amylase is designed for starch-based materials ethanol production especially for the feedstock with complex components.

Bestzyme SuperLIQ™ C5

A prominent α-amylase with high efficiency from Bestzyme applied in ethanol industry which is suitable for a variety of starchy materials to provide more possibilities and achieves complete starch conversion for your plant.

SuperLIQ® C5 is a liquid enzyme containing outstanding thermostable α-amylase. This enzyme can hydrolyses α-1,4 glucosidic linkages of starch molecule to produce short dextrin chains, reducing viscosity of a variety kinds of starch-based feedstock.

Advantages of SuperLIQ™ C5 Alpha-amylase

For ethanol producer, smooth running and high starch conversion rate are extremely important to achieve high ethanol yields. SuperLIQ® C5 may become an ideal solution to meet your targets. The advantages are as follows:

  • Available for different kinds of starch-based feedstock with non-starch impurities

  • Excellent viscosity reduction performance

  • Easier liquefaction handling with wide pH and temperature range

  • Complete starch conversion to enhance ethanol yields

Showing dominant performance in different scenarios

SuperLIQ® C5 can break down the structure of non-starch macromolecule releasing more starch and then convert starch to dextrin chains and oligosaccharides in a short time. Due to the regional differences, there are many kinds of feedstock be utilized in ethanol industry and SuperLIQ® C5 can provide corresponding solution no matter what is the location of your plant.

Excellent viscosity reduction performance makes high dry solids liquefaction possible

SuperLIQ® C5 with high activity can provide the most cost-effective solution to help our customers decrease mash viscosity. High viscosity results in many problems in production. It's harmful to pumps, tank agitators, heat exchangers and jet cookers leading production fluctuation.

The starch must be gelatinized first to make sure the enzyme can bind to the substrate easily. The mash viscosity will reach to the peak during gelatinization which will cause serious problems if not handled properly. SuperLIQ® C5 can help you decrease peak viscosity significantly compared to benchmark and enables high mash solids in liquefaction with no risk of system variation and save energy cost for plants.

Wide pH and temperature application range is the key point to achieve smooth operation

SuperLIQ® C5 is a kind of thermostable α-amylase and shows stable performance at wide pH range. That enables you to reduce the chemical consumption for pH adjusting before liquefaction and withstand production fluctuation to minimize the loss. What’s more, less chemicals also means better growing environment for yeast with less sodium which is beneficial to improve ethanol yield.
