Zetmeel & eiwit


Van eiwitconcentraten tot en met isolaten stellen onze extractie-, scheidings-, zuiverings-, concentratie- en droogtechnologieën u in staat om het meest geschikte proces te ontwerpen voor uw toepassing, of het nu dierenvoeding is of een supplement voor menselijke voeding en dranken.


GEA’s scheidingstechnologie verzekert hoge terugwinningsniveaus van producten van topkwaliteit, en onze decantercentrifuges en centrifugaalseparatoren zijn ontworpen voor maximale scheidingsefficiëntie, optimale eitwitopbrengst, minimaal energieverbruik en hygiënisch procesmanagement. Verder biedt GEA een hele reeks sproeidrogers waarvan de configuratie kan worden afgestemd op een breed spectrum van poedereigenschappen.  

Behalve plantaardige eiwitconcentraten en plantaardige isolaten bieden we ook totaaloplossingen voor gehydroliseerde vis- en dierlijke eiwitten, waaronder gelatines.

GEA has developed a comprehensive range of technologies, equipment and know-how to configure and install equipment for key process steps in vegetable protein manufacturing.

Key process steps for plant-based protein powders

  • 1
    Centrifuge clarifying decanter

    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.

    GEA BATCH FORMULA® PRO High Shear Mixer

    The protein-rich fraction derived from the isolation and purification steps is neutralized and diluted to the required concentration and viscosity.

  • 3
    Direct steam sterilization

    An indirect UHT plant with tube heat exchanger, steam injection or steam infusion is used to carry out effective heat treatment of protein dispersions.

  • 4
    FSD spray dryer GEA

    The dryer is configured to match the final protein powder properties. The configuration can vary from single stage to three stage drying, with or without fines recycling, integrated agglomeration and/or lecithination.

  • 5

    Flash and ring dryers are used for starch and fiber streams drying. Wet material is dispersed into a stream of heated air, which conveys it through a drying column. The heat from the air stream dries the material as it is conveyed.

  • 6
    GEA Nu-Con poedersilo's

    Conveying of powder from the dryer to powder storage followed by conveying to the powder filling system or other processing unit such as powder mixing. Conveying can be performed by gravity, pneumatic, mechanical or vibratory means as required by the application.

  • 7
    HYGiPac R1

    Powder filling into 25kg and big bags using high hygiene automatic powder fillers. Automated bag handling and closing is performed inside an enclosed safe environment to eliminate potential for contamination.

  • 8

    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.

  • 9
    CIP (Clean in Place)

    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.

    Advanced process control tools enable consistent, and robust process conditions with the highest efficiency levels and minimum energy consumption.
