We represent Yasho Industries Private Ltd. based in Mumbai, India and sell and distribute their food antioxidants in Turkey. Yasho Industries were incorporated in 1985. They are renowned by importance given to Research and Development and continuous innovation, process upgradation and product enhancement. Antioxidants BHT (Butylated Hydroxy Toluene), BHA (Butylated Hydroxy Anisole), TBHQ (Tertiary Butyl Hydroquinone) and AP (Ascorbyl Palmitate) produced under trademark YANTQ are known by their high quality.
Metal & Soap Removers
The presence of metals, phosphorus and soaps are not wanted in refined edible vegetable oils because of these act as prooxidants. Content of metals should be limited to below 0,2 ppm for each metal present and content of soaps should be zero in a good quality and stable refined oil.
Most metals, like copper and nickel with exception of phosphorus and some iron, come into the oil through dissolution during processing or storage in tanks. Washing and bleaching operations in the process are not very effective for the elimination of metals and soaps. On the other hand, excessive use of wash water may overload the treatment plant.
It is more practical and often necessary to use granular clays, instead of powdered products, as adsorbents during production and refining of petroleum derivatives such as jet fuel, mineral oils, transformer oils, paraffins, and similar organic fluids.
For such applications, Oil-Dri Corp. of America produces a high performance product, Ultra-Clear ®, by thermal processing of a natural attapulgite clay having a specific surface of approximately 150 m²/g, low moisture content and high mechanical strength, which won’t break down in presence of water.
Clays have been used in agriculture for a long time and in a versatile manner. Oil-Dri Corporation of America, who we represent in Turkey, have been producing agricultural carriers since 1966. Distinctive characteristics of the clays in the mineral deposits exploited by Oil-Dri make these products unique.
"Agsorb ®" brand products are manufactured in many different locations in the United States. These products are used as carriers of agricultural chemical, flow regulators, or moisture retainers due to their high capacity of absorption, liquid retention, and ion exchange capabilities.
Sports Field Products
Clays are used as soil conditioners in sports grounds and playing fields. Specially prepared clays are applied as a layer under the lawn keeps the water and moisture and give it back to the environment when necessary. It is important to keep the surface of the lawn smooth and easy to maintain as well as for the safety of the players.
Oil-Dri Corporation of America produces "Pro's Choice ®" brand of products for this purpose. Necessary absorption, water retention, and drainage properties and mechanical durability are imparted by correct choice of raw materials, comminution, drying, sorting, re-drying and thermal optimization.
We have been the representatives and distributors of Oil-Dri Corp.of America who are one of the major manufacturers of the industrial absorbents in the world. Industrial absorbents are products manufactured mostly from melt-blown polypropylene and used in production areas, during maintenance work and transfer of chemicals for safety against health hazards, and to protect the environment.
Advantages of using polypropylene based absorbents to those made from cellulosic fibers and cotton are as follows:
We have been the agents of Century Chemical Works/Malaysia and distribute and sell their "Malbon®" commercial brand powdered activated carbons for food and water treatment industries.
It is well known that activated carbons can absorb pigments in both vegetable and mineral oils with their specific surfaces larger than 800 m²/g. Activated carbons are also used for: a) Adsorbtion of PAHs, dioxins, 3-MCPDs, and all kinds of polymeric hydrocarbons and oxidation products, and b) As molecular sieves for removal of molecules of 3-4 Angstrom size, which can not be adsorbed by bleaching clays
Sharplex Filters (India) Pvt. Ltd. is a well known manufacturer of all kinds of filtration equipment in the world based in Mumbai in India, and we represent them in Turkey.
Sharplex Filters were founded in 1993, and reached an annual production of over 1.200 filters many of which being vertival and horizontal pressure leaf filters today. A variety of industries are being served which include oil and fats refining, foods, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, paints, ceramics, paper and printing.
Refining Plants and Equipment
We represent Kumar Metal Industries, who are one of the most reputable companies in India with more than 70 years of experience. Established in 1939, they manufacture all kinds of machinery, equipment and plants for vegetable oil industry.
They also undertake manufacturing jobs of Crown Iron Works in India as their business partner.
The term “refining” is used here involves all the processes crude vegetable oils undergo until they become edible or reach to the end user in desired quality.
Solvent Extraction Plants
We represent Kumar Metal Industries, who are one of the most reputable companies in India with more than 70 years of experience. Established in 1939, they manufacture all kinds of machinery, equipment and plants for vegetable oil industry.They also undertake manufacturing jobs of Crown Iron Works in India as their business partner.
Solvent extraction is the process of taking out the oil remaining in oilseeds with hexane after pre-preparation or pre-pressing by expellers in oil mills. This process is carried out mostly in burst-discharge batch reactors in our country.
Oil Mills and Milling Equipment
Vegetable oils are produced by either or both pression and solvent extraction of the oilseeds containing high levels of oil. Seeds, fruits, or leaves of some trees and industrial plants are also treated similarly to obtain vegetable oils. Seeds need to be prepared, fragmented, and conditioned to proper moisture and temperature for efficient expulsion of the oil or for extraction.
Kumar Metal Industries manufactures expeller presses for pre- and full-pression (to obtain meals with less than 10 % oil content from seeds containing high levels of oil) which they have developed themselves over the years and obtained “Excellent Export Product” award.
Catalyst Bed Supports
Catalyst bed supports are parts used in chemical reactors to support solid catalysts or molecular sieves from bottom and top, and also to regulate inlet and outlet flows. They are usually shaped as balls between 5 – 75 mm. made of ceramics or alumina.
They can also be manufactured in different shapes and sizes according to client’s requirements. It is important that the material should be inert and durable against thermal and mechanical shocks. Catalyst supports are mainly employed by petroleum refining, petrochemicals, fertilizer, and steel industries.
Tower Packings and Internals
Tower Packings are mostly ring or saddle-shaped parts which are used in scrubbers, absorption and distillation towers to create or increase liquid-gas contact surface in chemical, petrochemical, and fertilizer industries. Their basic shapes are in the form of Raschig rings, Pall rings, and Berl saddles.
Ceramic materials are extensively used in tower packings but they can also be manufactured from stainless steel, carbon/graphite, or other inert and durable materials.
Antifoam Agents/ Silicone Chemicals
We represent Silchem Inc. and sell and disribute their products in Turkey. Silchem is a Canadian manufacturer of silicone chemicals with over 30 years in the industry. Their dimethylpolysiloxane based food-grade product SAF-202 is used as antifoam agent by our edible fats&oils industry.
Products developed by Silchem are not limited with silicone based antifoams, and they’re also used and appreciated by industries like food & beverage, tire & rubber, petroleum & petrochemical, personal care & pharmaceutical, pulp & paper, textiles, especially in North America and Western Europe.
The term bleaching effectively means decolorisation. Clays with high specific surfaces have great importance in removal of unwanted substances, most of which are colored, from liquids through adsorption. Those clays are called bleaching earths.
We have been the representatives and distributors of Oil-Dri Corp.of America, one of the largest manufacturers of hormitic clays in the world.Oil-Dri manufacture their products from fullers earth (a natural mixture of attapulgite and bentonite) where most of the other clays in the market are produced from calcium type bentonites.
