Milk Sugar Lactose
Milk sugar or lactose consists of two interconnected sugar molecules: glucose and galactose. Lactose is a crystalline, colourless substance with a sweet taste, milk sugar is less soluble in water than other sugars. When heated or in alkaline solutions, lactose is partially converted to lactulose, which tastes sweeter than milk sugar. To prevent the sugar from crystallizing on the mechanical seal, STB GmbH has designed a double-acting mechanical seal as a dynamic variant.
