Ethyl Alcohol also called Ethanol, pure alcohol or drinking alcohol, is a volatile, flammable, colorless’ liquid. Best known as the type of alcohol found in alcoholic beverages, it is also used in thermometers, as a solvent and as a fuel. In common usage, it is often referred to simply as alcohol or spirits. .
Brief History :
The fermentation of sugar into ethanol is one of the earliest biotechnologies employed by humanity. The intoxicating effects of ethanol consumption have been known since ancient times. Ethanol has been used by humans since prehistory as the intoxicating ingredient of alcoholic. Dried residue on 9000-year-old pottery found in China implies that Neolithic people consumed alcoholic beverages.
The company makes available high quality Absolute Alcohol. Absolute or anhydrous alcohol refers to ethanol with low water content. There are various grades of Absolute Alcohol, with maximum water contents ranging from 1% to ppm levels. Pure ethanol is classed as 200 proof in the USA, equivalent to 175 degrees proof in the UK system.
It can be produced commercially by two methods which include:-
* Azeotropic distillation using entrainers (benzene, cyclopropane, cyclohexane, etc.
* Adsorption Method using molecular sieves as an adsorbing material, in which molecular sieves Dehydration Plants based on adsorption process is widely exercised.
In the process, water present in rectified spirit is adsorbed by molecular sieves under high temperature (above 150oC) and high pressure (about 3 kg. /cm)
Grades Available :
* Pharmacy Grade : It is best quality of alcohol having minimum strength of 99.6% to 99.99% used under pharmaceutical industries for several medicines.
* Industrial Grade : Absolute alcohol (Industrial Grade) is not intended for human consumption. If azeotropic distillation is used to remove water, it will contain trace amounts of the material separation agent (e.g. benzene). Absolute ethanol is used as a solvent for laboratory and industrial applications because in case of rectified spirit, water will react with other chemicals, and as fuel alcohol. Spectroscopic ethanol is an absolute ethanol with a low absorbance in ultraviolet and visible light, fit for use as a solvent in ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy.
It is useful for fuels, perfumes etc. The largest single use of ethanol is as a motor fuel additive. More than any other major country, Brazil relies on ethanol as a motor fuel. Gasoline sold in Brazil contains at least 25% anhydrous ethanol.
Extra Neutral Alcohol (Molasses Base )
We are a prominent provider of Extra Neutral Alcohol. The company makes available Extra Neutral Alcohol that is produced by re-distillation of rectified spirit, which helps in removing low volatile impurities and high volatile impurities present in it. Extra Neutral Alcohol is the best quality of alcohol which is used for Alcoholic Beverages having lowest impurities to give higher taste. Best qualities have more Potassium Permanganate Reaction Time. It shows low aldehydes of impurities. Best quality must have 45 PPT or more. In India, it is produced under supervision and control of State Excise Department that checks each and every process from fermentation to distillation every batch-wise and only after lab testing permit to sale or to use it under any potable use. Availability : 250 liter in a bulk
Neutral Grain Alcohol
Neutral Grain Alcohol is a alcohol which has been produced by fermenting and distilling grain. Mainly prepared by fermentation of various sugars. These are obtained from starchy grains like barley, corn, rice etc. It is also known as ethyl alcohol or ethanol. In addition to being used in the production of alcoholic beverages, grain alcohol is also used as a solvent and in a variety of other industrial applications.
Grains like corn and rye are under use to make alcohol for centuries. When grains are fermented, yeasts consume their natural sugars and convert them into alcohol. Depending on how a grain is fermented, the ethyl alcohol can be fairly low, as is the case with many beers, or quite high. When fermented grains are allowed to reach high ethanol content and then distilled, the result is a colorless and very potent liquid which is sometimes called neutral grain spirits, in a reference to the clear color.
Qualities Nose : Very clean, dry and no externeous odour. Plate : absolutely clean, no foreign taste and no mouth coating effect in palate.
