Three-phase separation in a single machine

By Chemical Engineering |

Three-phase separation has now become a significant alternative in the food industry both for starch production for separating wheat starch and gluten or for extracting animal or vegetable fat and oil. In all these processes, two liquids have to be separated from a solid phase. Previous processes used a decanter or separator to separate the solid from the liquid phase, and then the liquid phase had to undergo another stage to separate the two liquids. That meant at least two machines were required. The Tricanter makes it possible to separate two liquid phases from a solid phase, as long as they cannot dissolve in each other. — Flottweg SE, Vilsbiburg, Germany
