The product range Citrosol A S, Fast Drying Waxes) is a family of commercial waxes based on shellac (E – 904) and polyethylene wax, PE-wax (E – 914), that comply with the European Directive 9 5 /2 on food additives and the US legislation (Food and Drug Administration). It is possible then to export citrus treated with this protection in the whole world.
Using Citrosol A S the temperature of drying air is lowered from 45ºC to 33ºC. In that way, the temperature of the pulp does not increase during the drying process. Using a conventional water wax, however, temperature increase of the pulp was 5,5ºC. At the same time, lower temperature in the drying tunnel leads to lower energy consumption. Energy savings of 60-70% vs traditional waxes. Good gloss.
