Liquid Sugar Tanks

The American Ultraviolet tank-mounted LTC (Liquid Tank Conditioner) Series, formerly the SC (Sterile Conditioner) Series, has become an industry standard for controlling microbial growth in Liquid Sugar and High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) storage tanks. By using a combination of particle filtration (via a series of media filters), and microbial filtration (via UVC lamps like those used in medical applications), these units provide clean, disinfected air to the headspace, and have been doing so for decades. Of course we're always working on making our products more and more effective, and, over the years, we've improved the LTC Series with the addition of lamp monitoring, airflow monitoring, shatterproof-sleeved UVC lamps, and upgraded, standard components that enable the equipment to successfully operate outdoors. Thousands of custom units have also been made for various applications that require features not typically available on this type of equipment. Through the combination of satisfying the most common custom requests, incorporating innovations in materials, improved fabrication techniques, embracing industry trends, and, because of decades of our in-house design and manufacturing experience, we're very pleased to report that the facelift we've applied to our new LTC series has proven to be very well received by our customers.

  • Heavy gauge stainless steel construction that is continuously welded, which means every seam on the stainless steel UVC chamber and blower/filter enclosure of the new LTC is welded and ground smooth. This makes for an airtight enclosure, and eliminates 99.9969% of particulate matter before the UVC lamps are even factored in
  • In order to continuously weld these units, the steel needed to be able to handle more heat during fabrication, so we upgraded the thickness of material used, resulting in an even sturdier enclosure more likely to hold it's shape in the event that it is mishandled in shipping, installation or routine maintenance
  • A 6" deep pleated "Absolute" HEPA filter is included with every LTC version currently offered. It was determined that the 1" thick electrostatic pre-filters alone were not acceptable for adequate particle filtration, so the pre-filter only versions of the LTC have been discontinued
  • The ballasts that drive the UV lamps have been moved outside the airstream to maximize the effectiveness of the UV exposure chamber and make room for additional lamps inside the UV chamber
  • Despite all the upgrades and additions to the LTC Series, there are still some add-ons, and features, that remain optional, including:

  • Airflow monitoring and indication
  • 316L Stainless Steel construction
  • 220V - 50/60Hz operation (no additional cost)
  • Remote mounted lamp-out and airflow indication (future option)
  • Heater add-on with control (future option)
  • CE approval (future option)
  • Output to external monitoring of lamps and airflow (future option)
