Citric Acid Manufacturers in China
Citric acid is an important organic acid. According to its water content, citric acid is divided into monohydrate citric acid and anhydrous citric acid. Natural citric acid is found in the fruits of plants such as lemons, oranges and pineapples and in the bones, muscles and blood of animals. Synthetic citric acid is produced by fermentation of sugar, molasses, starch, grapes and other sugary substances, and is generally produced by corn fermentation in China. Pure citric acid is colorless transparent crystal or white powder, odorless, with an attractive sour taste.
Citric acid has a wide range of downstream consumption areas, mainly applied in food, beverage, medicine, chemical and washing fields, among which it is known as the “first edible acid flavor agent” in the food and beverage industry. Due to the extensive market demand, the demand for citric acid products is increasing year by year.
Citric acid industry belongs to the subdivision of corn deep processing industry, and the consumption of corn in citric acid industry accounts for about 2% of the total amount of corn deep processing. The global production capacity of citric acid is mainly concentrated in Asia, North America and Europe. Citric acid fermentation in Asia is mainly produced in China, with other production capacity distributed in Thailand, the United States, Austria and other places. In summary, China’s citric acid has low labor cost, rich raw material resources and highly concentrated scale, which has a great price advantage in the global citric acid market.
China is the world’s largest producer and exporter of citric acid products. In the field of fermentation, Chinese citric acid has strong advantages in fermentation technology, strain technology, extraction process, industrial scale, industrial resources and other aspects. In addition to the large domestic market demand, the export volume of domestic citric acid products is increasing year by year. The industry as a whole is an export-oriented industry, and the overall market structure features mainly export market.

Citric Acid Uses
Citric acid is a kind of food additive, used in the food industry accounting for more than 75% of the production, in the food industry can be used as sour agent, solvent, buffer, antioxidant, deodorant, flavor enhancer, gelling agent, toner, etc
Citric acid is widely used in detergent industry. The use of citric acid or citrate as lotion aid can improve the performance of washing products, precipitate metal ions quickly, prevent pollutants from reattaching to the fabric, and maintain the necessary alkaline washing; To disperse and suspend dirt and ash; Improve the performance of surfactant, is a good chelating agent.
Citric acid has antioxidant, improve human immunity, protect cardio-cerebrovascular, anti-inflammatory and other functions;
Citric acid is a natural preservative. Because citric acid can reduce the pH of feed, the proliferation of harmful microorganisms and the production of toxins are inhibited, and it has obvious mildew prevention effect. As an antioxidant synergist, citric acid mixed with antioxidant can improve the antioxidant effect, prevent or delay feed oxidation, improve the stability of compound feed and prolong the storage period.
* Cleaning mechanism of citric acid
Citric acid has little corrosion on metals and is a safe cleaning agent. Since citric acid does not contain Cl-, it will not cause stress corrosion of equipment. It can complex Fe3+ and weaken the promoting effect of Fe3+ on corrosion.
Citric acid can dissolve ferric oxide and copper oxide to form the complex of ferric citrate and copper. If ammoniated citric acid solution is adopted, it can form the complex of ferric ammonium citrate and ferric citrate with great solubility, and the cleaning effect is very good. Citric acid is mainly used to remove rust, so it is mainly used to clean newly built boilers. It can be used to clean calcium and magnesium scale and rust in boiler. Citric acid and EDTA can be used to clean superheater. Citric acid and its derivatives are widely used in many fields such as chemical cleaning due to their special physicochemical properties.
* Cleaning pipe with citric acid
This is the latest cleaning technology for hard water with high impurities. It uses food-grade citric acid to soften stubborn scale, and then uses microcomputer to control water flow and pneumatic to produce water flow shock, so that the aged scale in the water pipe is peeled off, so that the water pipe is smooth and clean.
* Compound surfactant cleaning gas water heater
The gas water heater that has been used for many years was cleaned with chemical cleaning agent made up of citric acid, AES and benzotriazole. The cleaning agent was injected into the inverted water heater, soaked for 1 hour, poured out the cleaning solution, washed with clean water, and used again. Under the same flow rate, the outlet temperature was increased by 5℃ ~ 8℃.
* Clean the water dispenser
Dilute with edible citric acid (powder) with water, inject into the water dispenser heating tank, soak for about 20min. Finally, rinse the liner with water repeatedly until clean, non-toxic and good effect.
