Tartaric acid

Zipfluid loading and unloading arms for food&beverage: Tartaric Acid

Tartaric acid was isolated for the first time in the 19th century. Its name comes from the starting compound from which it was isolated , that was named “potassium tartar” or simply “tartar”.
It occurs in fruits and wine and it is known for its lightening and exfoliating properties.
It is used in cooking and cosmetics, as ingredient for exfoliating products and depigmenting creams.

It is employed in food as acidity regulator and leavening agent. In particular, in soft and effervescent drinks; in some bakery product, sweets as well as in dairy products and yeast powder.


Zipfluid’s proposal for Tartaric Acid includes top loading arms – our model LA130 made of AISI316L stainless steel with PTFE seals and a manhole closing plate on the terminal pipe to prevent the dirt from entering the tankers during loading operations.
Turbine or mass-flowmeters combined with flow check-valve, electronic heading and any other additional part required for the measurement system.
Among the most commonly used accessories: standpost, breakaway valve series VA400, sight glass to check the flow, parking device and grounding monitors (Timm EKX-4).
Top loading arms can be endowed with a vapor recovery cone on the end pipe with a hose to convey the recovered vapor to the arm’s base.
