Processing Optimized

Processing Optimized Valorization of Functional Nutrients with New Extraction Technology International technology group ANDRITZ has developed Turbex, a highly efficient extraction system to produce functional nutrients. ANDRITZ Turbex helps to produce high-quality extracts from botanicals and natural products and turn waste such as orange peel or brewer’s spent grain (BSG) into revenue-generating nutrients. This patented extraction technology works by generating high turbulence, shear, and cavitation, hundreds of times more than conventional extractors. It uses a series of rotors and stators to cause thousands of cavitation events per second, resulting in higher yields in shorter processing times. Assisted by a counter-current process, ANDRITZ Turbex delivers yields up to 50% higher than conventional systems. The low extraction temperature combined with the short processing time improves the product quality as oxidization of valuable polyphenols and antioxidants is avoided. Requiring up to 30% less energy than conventional extraction methods, ANDRITZ Turbex has a faster return on investment and less environmental impact. The fact that it does not necessarily require ethanol as an extraction solvent but can operate using only water also reduces both costs and carbon footprint. Thanks to lower investment costs and operating expenses, Turbex also makes byproduct valorization an attractive option for a broad variety of applications. The Turbex extractor is an efficient method of extracting vegetable proteins, polyphenols, essential oils, extra virgin olive oil, antioxidants and (dietary) fiber from waste products such as spent brewer’s grain or coffee grounds, botanicals, tea leaves, citrus peel, or cannabis leaves. With the right extraction sequence and process parameters, the valorization process can be optimized in terms of purity and product composition to obtain products with maximum commercial value. ANDRITZ Turbex can be installed as a retrofit to improve existing process line performance thus making a useful addition to process line solutions such as those in the ready-to-drink-tea market. fmt 22 food Marketing & Technology • June 2022

As skilled bakers, the customer had an established process and needed an adaptable In-Line Sifter to work effectively with their existing equipment, in the new recipe lines. Kemutec demonstrated the versatility of its KEK sifting technology through its design of the body, which made it suitable for pressurized conveying, whilst also maintaining the ability for operators to access the sifter with ease. Quality Design and Fast Production Secure Win The customer advised that timescales played a significant factor in their final decision. With the expansion of product lines, it was imperative that they were able to obtain the new machinery and have it installed as quickly as possible to recoup their upfront costs. Kemutec’s well-oiled production line and ease of availability meant that delivery times were considerably shorter than the competitors. In addition to presenting the customer with customized In-Line Sifters which had clear additional benefits such as their hygienic design and quick screen change capabilities; Kemutec was consequently awarded the initial order. Kemutec’s continuously high performing and reliable sifting technology, along with their unwavering support of the customer, resulted in the further supply of 12 machines. Kemutec values customer satisfaction and have been able to demonstrate this through supplying an extensive spare parts provision and comprehensive aftercare support. A focus on reliability and longevity ensured that purchasing an In-Line Sifter from them is a secure, long-term investment for the Flatbread producer.
