New TFL soaking agent for greasy hides

Worldwide
Published:  20 May, 2014

In support of TFL’s innovative and ecological ‘Low Sulfide Technology’, Pellvit LSG has been launched for the soaking of very greasy hides, such as Australian, Scottish or Irish hides; and also for the relatively short soaking of American pre-fleshed, fresh and brine cured hides. 

Pellvit LSG has proven to be highly effective for the soaking of greasy hides, preparing them for proper unhairing, with excellent consistency.

This ecological, salt-free product improves the accessibility of sulphide to the hair root in such a way that a low sulphide unhairing process can be applied without hair-root and fine-hair problems.

Pellvit LSG allows a substantial reduction of surfactant use in the beamhouse process whilst providing consistently low fat numbers. At the same time, it is extremely beneficial for high cutting yields, as it does not have a negative impact on the integrity of bellies and flanks.

The ideal partner for Pellvit LSG is Erhavit LSU, a novel enzymatic liming agent, which supports the unhairing effect of sulphide. The product weakens the epidermis and the pre-keratin of the hair-root selectively which supports the removal of fine-hair and hair-roots.
