Our technology can provide solutions for concentrating coffee, tea, and other solid-containing liquids that are challenging to process, due to heat and shear sensitivity, foaming, and fouling characteristics of materials.
Process Solution Applications:
- Concentrating coffee to greater than 80% solids, to achieve a consistent high-quality concentrate, in a single step.
- Concentrating caffeine, from a wet solvent-rich solution to a dry powder with less than 100 PPM residual solvent, in a single step.
- Concentrating tea from a dilute solution to greater than 50% solids without product degradation in a single pass.
- Desolventize edible oils to ppm levels.
- Desolventize and strip organic solvents from concentrated oils to low PPM residual level of 50 PPM or less.
Drying a heat sensitive protein that contains fiber and starch by evaporating water from a 2% aqueous solution to a free-flowing powder with a moisture content of less than 5%. By utilizing this application, it eliminates a lyophilizing step.
- Concentrating and drying an aqueous soy isoflavones stream from 2% solids to a free-flowing powder containing less than 1% moisture.
- Concentrating and drying aqueous niacin amide from 50% moisture to a dry free-flowing powder with no product degradation
Recovering Aromas, Flavors, etc.
Artisan’s aroma recovery solutions are capable of recovering valuable flavors and aromas directly from a slurry. Our solutions are more cost effective than installing and operating other leading technologies and will offer additional features and benefits.
- Steam stripping process to strip hexane from vegetable oil containing Lecithin, from 80% to 2 PPM without product degradation.
- Reduce Methyl Ester from crude Coconut oil from 50% to less than 1%.
- Dehydrate crude Vanillin from 20% to less than 50 PPM.
- Remove hexane from Marigold oleoresin from 10% to 25 PPM.
- Strip cholesterol to less than 100 PPM from butter fat and lard.
- Deodorize cocoa butter by steam stripping the low molecular weight free fatty acids to non-detectable levels. Deodorization is accomplished at 10 torr and relatively low temperatures (below 150°C) to prevent intra-esterification, while utilizing an economically favorable 3% stripping steam rate.
- Strip cholesterol from butter bat and lard
- Remove solvents from oleoresins.
- Dehydrate crude vanillin.
- Remove methyl ester from crude coconut oil.
Artisan’s thin-film, short residence time process solution technology is ideally suited for heat-sensitive and viscous food or beverage products that foul, foam or contain solids. Our thin-film technology will not degrade or denature proteins and can process materials with viscosities up to 1 million centipoise.
We have the ability to strip undesirable contaminants to non-detectable levels with no loss of valuable aroma/flavor compounds. Artisan’s process solution offers extremely short residence time and rapid surface renewal.
