Food Processing Industries


Distillation is a separation process by their differences in boiling point. It relies on differences in the boiling points of the component liquids to be separated. The mixture to be separated is added to a Distillation column where it is heated to the boiling point. Lower boiling components will preferentially vaporize first. This vapor passes into a Distilling Head and then into a Condenser. Within the Condenser the vapor is cooled and condensed. The resulting Distillate is then collected in a Receiver.

Mixtures of a large number of similarly boiling liquids can be separated by a technique called Fractional Distillation. In fractional distillation, mixture vapor arising from the distillation to be repeatedly re-condensed and re-vaporized. After a number of these condensation/vaporization steps, the lower boiling component will be relatively free of any higher boiling components. This allows for a more thorough separation of the liquids.

Distillation technology is frequently encountered in the Food, Chemical, Petrochemical and Beverage industries. We supply distillation plants for the separation of compound mixtures, for binary solution, multi component solutions, gas stripping and for the recovery and cleaning of solvents. MKS Industrial solutions designs complete Equipments along with piping & accessories which cover all stages from extraction of the components and enrichment of distillate by indirect/ direct heating with help of steam.

MKS industrial solutions design is recognized for the high thermodynamic efficiencies and high distillate purities. Systems providing a wide range of upstream and downstream unit operations to complete the distillation system.

We use distillation column system such as:

• Random packing columns
• Structured packing columns
• Sieve tray columns
• Bubble cup columns
• Valve tray columns
• Funnel tray columns
• Molecular sieve

Evaporation:

The Zero Discharge system has to incorporate volume reduction by evaporation. The concentrated waste thereafter can be composted to achieve zero discharge. Alternatively, our evaporator can concentrate waste to still higher levels suitable for incineration and other relevant technologies.

MKS Industrial Solutions provides Evaporation system to Food Processing, Chemical, Petrochemical Industries as well as grain based distilleries. Evaporators application are designed for client’s exact application considering the physical/chemical properties and thermal characteristics of the feed.

Process condensate from the evaporator can be used for process and cooling tower makeup. Evaporation set up is placed in both metal based structure & civil constructed building.

MKS serves the technology which is developed through extensive R & D. We will ensure the right solution at optimum investment and operational cost, Capacity Up-gradation/ Revamping / Retrofitting.

1. Revamping of existing Evaporation system not working up to requirements for new applications.
2. Capacity Up gradation of existing Evaporation system.
3. Major reduction in energy consumption by changes in the basic design.

We Design, manufacture and supply Evaporation system such as:

• Falling Film Evaporation
• Forced circulation Evaporation
• Scraped surface evaporation
• Thin Film Evaporation
• Wiped Film Evaporation
• Batch Evaporation

Dryer

MKS Industrial Solutions serve the technology which is absolute perfect for the WGS to convert into DGS. MKS Industrial Solutions supplies engineering services and complete process plants and components for drying of products to customers in the industries of food and dairy, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and relevant products. In the processing industries, drying is one of the key functions to dry the products at certain level as well as to store itself for long period. We offer a range of dryers for handling fluid, paste, and moist powder, particulate and granulate feeds.

Depending on the specific application, MKS Industrial Solutions offers custom designed systems based on proven configurations and technology to provide flexibility in design and optimal performance.

We Design, manufacture and supply Dryer system such as:

• Spray Dryer
• Flash Dryer
• Ring Dryer
• Rotary Dryer
• Superheated steam Dryer
• Paddle Dryer
• Fluid Bed Dryer

Spray Dryer

A spray dryer is a device used in spray drying. It takes a liquid stream and separates the solute or suspension as a solid and the solvent into a vapor. The solid is usually collected in a drum or cyclone. The liquid input stream is sprayed through a nozzle into a hot vapor stream and vaporized. Solids form as moisture quickly leaves the droplets. A nozzle is usually used to make the droplets as small as possible, maximizing heat transfer and the rate of water vaporization. Droplet sizes can range from 20 to 180 μm depending on the nozzle

It starts with the atomization of a liquid feedstock into a spray of droplets. The small droplets are created by an atomizer. The droplets are introduced into a hot airstream, which is cooled down due to the evaporation of the water or a chemical solvent from the concentrate. This now cooled and humid air is discharged from the dryer through a cyclone, bag filter or a combination of the two. After separation of the now dry particles, the air is discharged into the atmosphere. The dry particles can be cooled and bagged off after separation from the process air. The spray drying process entirely depends on the composition of the product.

Ring Dryer

Specifically MKS Industrial Solutions Provides WGS Ring Dryer which has been Design, manufacture and supplied to the Grain based starch isolation relevant products industries.. The presence of internal classifier in the Ring drying system is what differentiates it from the other dryer. The manifold uses the centrifugal forces created through passing a product containing airstream around a curve to concentrate the product into a moving layer. The adjustable splitter blades are used to cut this layer and return the heavier, semi-dried material back to the dryer for another pass through the system while the lighter, drier product exits the dryer and gets conveyed to the product collection system.

In the classifier centrifugal forces to provide extended residence time for the heavier wetter particles while allowing the lighter dryer particles to be transferred to product collection. Disintegrator/disperser in combination with the manifold provides close control of particle size, product moisture and exhaust temperature to ensure the best product quality.

Fermentation

The fermentation of carbohydrates into Alcohol derivatives is one of the known chemical processes.

1. Starch (Grain) Sugar Alcohol + Carbon Dioxide 2. Sugar (Cane Juice/Molasses) Alcohol + Carbon Dioxide

The fermentation process is started by hydrolysis of starch, converted into sugar and mix with water, allowing the Yeast to act in an oxygen free environment. This anaerobic environment forces the yeast to shut down the “burning” of sugar and allows them to, instead, ferment Alcohol.
