Sesbania Gum

Sesbania Gum is extracted from sesbania seeds which is originated from China. The sesbania gum powder is white loose milky powder which is soluble in water, insoluble in alcohol, ketones, ethers and other organic solvents.

Sesbania gum powder can be dispersed in cold water to form a viscous solution.

The viscosity of sesbania gum powder is 5-10 times higher than natural plant gum, sodium alginate. It plays a major role as a flocculant in water and wastewater treatment.

Furthermore, the constituents and specifications of sesbania gum powder are as follows. It has a minimum viscosity of 2000 to 2500 cps. And when the viscometer is used at a temperature of 25 degrees and speed of 20 rpm, it has a maximum viscosity of 3000 to 3500 cps.

Further sesbania gum powder has a moisture content of maximum 12 percent, passing 90 percent, proteins 5 percent, fat 1 percent, A.L.R. 3 percent, Ash 1 percent, pH between 5.5 to 7.0, carbohydrates minimum 80 percent, arsenic maximum 3 ppm, lead maximum 2 ppm, and heavy metals maximum 20 ppm.

Besides this, it has been found after performing microbiological tests, that the sesbania gum powder contains a total plate count per grams of maximum 5000, yeast and mold per gram of maximum 200, salmonella per 25 grams is not present, and also, E. colli and Colliforn is not available.

  • Application

    • Sesbania gum powder is used as sizing agents and dye thickeners in textile industries.
    • It plays a major role as a flocculant in water and wastewater treatment.
    • The most important use of sesbania seeds is in oil industry as it is used a blocking agent, water resistance-reduction agent and tackifier for preparing fluid cracking which results to increase in oil production rate.
    • The sesbania gum powder is also used in incense.
