The most common wet separation is a multi-stage process involving protein extraction, protein precipitation and purification. Key end points are consistent protein quality and high yields, using technologies that ensure hygienic processing and sustainable water management. A membrane filtration unit could optionally be used to isolate specific fractions of the purified protein.
Effluent from the protein isolation process can undergo thermal separation in an evaporator, to produce a concentrate and a clean condensate. Condensate from the evaporator can be further purified in a GEA reverse osmosis (RO) plant to generate a concentrated retentate and a permeate of very high purity.
Effective CIP solutions remove any leftover product from the plant, tank surfaces, heat exchangers, pumps, pipes, etc. Systems with SIP (Sterilize-in-Place) functionality for high microbiologic control can be integrated.
