Hydrocyclones for food and beverage applications - Food and Beverage
FLSmidth Krebs cyclones are used in a wide range of applications in the food industry. Cyclones help protecting downstream processing equipment and reducing contaminants in food.
Krebs hydrocyclones and separators are particularly useful in fruit and vegetable washing and processing operations. They have been used primarily as protective devices for downstream process equipment and to combat food contamination by dirt and grit in juices, sauces, pastes and purees. They are used to remove seeds, pits, sand or tramp metal ahead of the food mills, homogenizers or centrifuges.
Degrit Tomato Pulp (Ketchup) Quality is improved by cleaning the pre-cooked pulp in a separator. Following pre-cooking and pulping the stream is cleaned in an ultra-high efficiency stainless steel separator. The cleaned pulp discharges through the overflow, while dirt and other containments go out the underflow for disposal. The separation action can handle large amounts of pulp with minimal loss of tomato pulp.
