Cost-effective clarification solutions that will provide the highest product quality and maximum yield
Today, the use of plant protein as a food ingredient is on the rise. However, before commercial use, extraction and purification of the protein is necessary. Sometimes the specific protein is caught in a matrix of other protein molecules, and sometimes it’s surrounded by non-protein biological elements. Filtration is a process step that can be used to remove the cell parts and other solids that can surround and contain the target protein.
Plant protein or extract clarification is carried out by a variety of methods ranging from centrifugation to filtration. Today’s manufacturers are looking for the most cost-effective clarification solutions that will provide the highest product quality and maximum yield, while ensuring process safety and minimizing waste volumes.
To address these requirements, Pall offers ceramic crossflow filtration systems incorporating Membralox® ceramic modules. These systems offer unique benefits including defined performance, reduced contamination risk due to enclosed systems, high yields, and waste minimization.
