Sugar Processing




MAKS 9660 is a special additive designed to improve sugar end operations.


          MAKS 9660 is used as crystallizing aid that designed for sugar beet processing and cane sugar manufacturing.


  • Effective foam prevention in the white masse cuite process areas in sugar plants
  • Enhanced crystallization process
  • Increase sugar yield and lower molasses purity
  • Improve purging, massecuite fluidity
  • Provide speed graining
  • Form sharper crystals
  • Reduce pan boiling and centrifugation time
  • Is in compliance with FDA regulation applicable for sugar processing industry.


Recommended Use for Pans: Use 1 liter of MAKS 9660 additive for each 250 HL (1000 cubic feet) of ‘A’ or ‘B’ massecuite. The product should be dispersed in 1-3 gallons of water and added to the boiling pan in three shots: one at the start of boiling, one when the strike is approximately 2/3 of its volume, and the final application about 10 to 15 minutes before closing the feeding for brixing up. Use 3/4 of a liter of MAKS 9660 for each 1000 cubic feet of ‘C’ massecuite. Add 1/2 of the solution at the start of boiling and the remainder just before dropping the massecuite. The product can be predispersed with water for ease of application.

Recommended Use for Crystallizers (Lubrication): Use MAKS 9660 to improve fluidity. Make a  solution of 2 liters of MAKS 9660 in 200 liters (50 gallons) of water. In continuous crystallizers, add the solution constantly at  the center of the system where the massecuite has reached its lowest temperature. Add the solution at a rate of 200 liters per 250 HL (50 gallons per 1000 cubic feet) of massecuite. In batch crystallizers, add 200 liters per 250 HL of massecuite. Should more fluidity be required for better purging at a lower temperature, part of the solution should be dripped on the massecuite just before it enters the C mixer.

Your BIMAKS representative will recommend the optimum dosage necessary to ensure maximum program performance according to your specific system parameters.


As a standard precaution with all chemicals we recommend the use of protective equipment such as goggles and rubber gloves when handling. Consult the Material Safety Data Sheet as the only official source of Environmental and Safety information.

The product can be stored 24 months from date of shipping if kept in its original, unopened container and under normal warehouse conditions. Protect from freezing and from exposure to high temperature.

MAKS 9660 is available in non-returnable containers of different sizes.


The dosage quantity of the product changes according to the operating conditions and water chemistry of the system. BIMAKS representative will propose the appropriate dosage quantity to ensure maximum conditioning performance based on the distributed system parameters.
