Its been a while that I have not ask for the help of everyone here but been reading through the forums every now and then. I guess, at this time, your opinion and expertise would greatly count.
We manufacture white sugar from sugarcanes (ave. 12,000 bags/day) and one of our client is using our sugar in their coffee mixes. There are times that our sugar were rejected due high count in molds. IMEX, we encounter this increased in molds while our sugar in storage or sitting at the container yard due late withdrawals by our clients. Our plant is operating 24 hours and six days a week which our opportune time to do a wash down is during weekends only.
1. In your experienced, what should be done to eliminate or reduce this occurrences to acceptable limit?
2. Should we use an accepted bleaching agent on those equipment or storage bins that do not utilized heat process?
Thank you for your valuable help.
P.S. Drying is our last stage where our sugar is subjected to heat at more than 60 deg celsius.
