Downstream Processing

In the DSP section, the harvested broth from the Food fermentation module is processed into the final (or intermediate) Food Ingredient with the desired specification.

This section can also be used as a stand-alone section for non-fermented products which require final processing at pilot scale. The treatment method depends on the type of broth and the desired specifications. The following unit operations are available:

  • Cell removal (disk stack centrifuge)
  • Ultra/microfiltration
  • Ion exchange column chromatography
  • Evaporative crystallizer
  • Falling film evaporator
  • Spray dryer

Additional equipment can be installed, obtained from the client or rentals.

The usage of flammable materials such as organic solvents is possible in the existing designated ATEX zone (T3).
