PennWhite Halal Certificate Expanded

The London based Halal Food Authority (HFA) has expanded the scope of our halal certification to include 12 Foamdoctor food-grade foam control agents. A copy of our new certificate, which includes details of the approved products, can be seen here.

We will be submitting more Foamdoctor products to the HFA for their approval and hope to eventually offer a range of halal certified products similar in scope to our kosher range which currently stands at 65 products.

PennWhite Save Salt Slags

On Sunday afternoon we received an emergency phone call from one of Europe’s largest industrial residue recyclers; their salt slag processing plant was about to shut down if we couldn’t help!

Salt slag is a waste product produced during aluminium smelting. The residue, along with spent pot liners (SPL) used in the process, contains reusable aluminium alongside useful oxides and salts. Separating these components involves crushing the waste and mixing it with water at 110oC, unfortunately this generates foam which inhibits the dissolution and crystallisation key to the success of the recycling process.

After reviewing the process conditions we suggested Foamdoctor F2913, a foam control agent particularly suited to high temperature use. By Monday afternoon F2913 was on site and being dosed into the water tanks and, despite the temperatures and pressures involved, eliminating unwanted foam as promised.

PennWhite are happy to play their part in helping our new customer deliver an environmentally responsible solution to the issue of industrial waste treatment.

PennWhite Certified Kosher For 16th Year.

Rabbi Kay from the Manchester Beth Din visited PennWhite earlier this month to perform his annual inspection of our Middlewich facilities. During his visit the Rabbi audited our raw material storage area, production unit and  finished goods storage and dispatch facility, as well as processes related to the manufacture of our Foamdoctor food-grade foam control agents.

Following his inspection he certified that 65 of our Foamdoctor antifoam and defoamer products are "Kosher and Parev" and conform to the Jewish laws of ritual purity.

This is our sixteenth year of Kosher certification and our new 2017-18 certifcate can be viewed by following the link below. This certificate lists the certified Foamdoctor products which can be shipped with a hechsher, more commonly known as a "Kosher symbol", on their label.

PennWhite: A Slow Plane To China.

Despite an un-retracted front landing gear on their Airbus A380 out of Manchester, and the subsequent  "unscheduled" landing at Heathrow and extended layover in Dubai, Technical Director Mark Humphries and Sales Manager Stephen Whitehead had a succesful trip to China last week.
 
Stopping first in Shanghai, they met with our new partners to plan the supply of PennWhite's foam control agents into China before attending a meeting in Hong Kong with our long established partners who oversee the supply of our silicone emulsions to the Chinese printing industry. Mark reports that both meeting were very positive and will help PennWhite extend its presence in the country.
