We offer the service of reduction or removal of undesirable compounds in distillates such as tequila or mezcal, by means of adsorption on activated carbons.
These compounds can modify the desired profile, cause color, turbidity, flavor, aroma or other organoleptic effect, depending on their physicochemical characteristics.
Our service begins with the search for the carbon or mixture of activated carbons from a matrix of more than 50 types of the highest possible specificity, in order to minimize the adsorption of molecules that the client does not wish to remove from the tequila.
The tequila or distillate to be treated can be reduced of fatty acids, aromas and unwanted colors, furfural or phthalates can also be eliminated.
With this process it is also possible to produce cristalino tequila from añejos and extra añejos. We use a combination of different carbons to make a tailor-made suit depending on the aromas or unwanted elements, without the need to recompose a profile or shave it completely.
In order to do this, we generate samples that allow the customer to choose the type of carbon and the most appropriate dosage. At this point, we can refine the search, in terms of carbon types and doses.
The service includes the development of the process application technique at industrial level, the conformation of the treatment train equipment (not the equipment), the sizing of the equipment, the execution of the treatment process and the accompaniment of the client until the objective is achieved.
*The technical service does not include the required equipment or activated carbons.
