ABS Lipidase 10,000 & 10,000L
Product: Lipidase is a specially formulated lipase which is produced for use in enhancement of cleaning, waste treatment, solubilization and digestion of waste fats and a great number of other industrial and agricultural applications. Lipidase has broad ranges of activity and action patterns suitable for use in all types of saturated and unsaturated animal and vegetable fats and oils. Included in this group of substances digested by Lipidase are: soy oil, canola oil, linseed oil, coconut oil, palm oil, beef fat, olive oil and lard. The enzymes in Lipidase are effective on saturated as well as relatively unsaturated forms of these triglyceride esters. Highly saturated fats digest in much accelerated fashion when emulsified in aqueous solution. The enzyme catalyzes the conversion of the fat and oils into water‐soluble components that are more easily biodegraded.
Lipidase is suitable for formulation with a broad variety of detergents and for use in cleaning formulations.
Method of Analysis: Measurement of fatty acid (butyric acid) liberated from tributyrin, pH 7.0 @ 30°C.
pH Optimum: 7.0 – 12.0, Activity range: 5.0 – 13.5.
Appearance: Light tan to off‐white, free‐flowing granular powder, neutral odor. Liquid product is amber in color.
Storage Conditions: For optimal activity over longest storage time, keep in dry place under 110°F. Half life under these conditions is in excess of two years.
Precautions: See above storage conditions; also see material safety data sheet for general information concerning enzymes. Avoid use in extremely dusty environment; concentrate may cause allergic reactions in certain susceptible individuals. Many of these enzymes will normally survive processing at elevated temperatures. Care should be taken to insure that minimum of steam is used and that temperatures used are no greater than necessary to accomplish desired results. Presence of soluble calcium will help improve temperature stability of this product.
Summary: Animal fats and vegetable oils are composed of glycerol esters (or triglycerides). Lipases catalyze the breakdown of triglycerides into more water soluble forms: glycerol and fatty acid components. This product is described as Lipase, triacylglycerol, CAS No. 9001‐62‐1, EC no. 188.8.131.52.
Lipidase is a broad spectrum lipase that is particularly useful in cleaning and other industrial applications. Its rapid attack of a great variety of vegetable and animal fats and oils and its stability give the product particularly desirable properties for processing applications. Unlike many other lipases of fungal origin, this product does not require acidic pH adjustments for optimal activity. Lipidase is compatible with a wide variety of surfactants and cleaning compounds and has good miscibility and stability in aqueous and detergent reaction conditions.
