Glucose syrup,also known as corn syrup,is a syrup made from the hydrolysis of starch in glucose syrup production equipment. The glucose syrup prevents sugar from crystallizing and is therefore mainly used in the candy and confectionery industries .
The traditional method in corn glucose syrup production equipment is produce glucose syrup from the corn starch . Now our company has the new technology , we can produce glucose syrup from corn ( maize) directly in corn glucose syrup production equipment .
Our company have advanved technology for the corn glucose syrup production equipment, the main corn glucose syrup production equipment and the main machines is as below :
1. Corn powder making process in corn glucose syrup production plant
Corn powder making process in corn glucose syrup production plant
The corn after cleaning will be separated the germ first, then mill the corn meal into corn powder by dry milling method . After milling and sieving several times to get the required size corn powder for producing the glucose syrup .
2. corn powder slurry making process in corn glucose syrup production plant
Mixing the rice powder and water to get the right density slurry. Then add the amylase and keep on the temperature for particular time to make rice powder absorbing enough water .
Liquefaction process for corn glucose syrup production plant
3. Liquefaction process in corn glucose syrup production plant
The liquefaction process is convert the starch which contented inside of the rice powder into liquid dextrin. The material will be sprayed at high temperature by jet cooker . With the aid of amylase and steam , the starch will be converted into liquid dextrin quickly.
4. Deproteinization process in corn glucose syrup production plant
The deproteinization process is separate the rice protein and other solid impurity from liquid dextrin by filter press. The liquid dextrin will be pumped to next process, the rice protein will be left for sale. .
The by product rice protein ( feed grade) is top grade protein additives for making animal feed .
Saccharification process equipment
5. Saccharification process in corn glucose syrup production plant
The saccharification process is convert the liquid dextrin into required DE value glucose syrup with the aid of gluco-amylase in the tank . This process should be run under specific temperature for some hours . This process is get the crude and yellow color glucose syrup.
6. Decolorization process in corn glucose syrup production plant
The decolorization process is removing the color of the glucose syrup by activated carbon. The glucose syrup which reached required DE will be pumped from saccharification tank into the decolorization tank , mixed with activated carbon at proper temperature .
7. Decarburization process in corn glucose syrup production plant
The decarburization process is separating the activated carbon from the glucose syrup by filter press to get clear glucose syrup.
The glucose syrup will flow into the slot and the transfer tank for next step. The activated carbon will be left.
Ion exchange process in corn glucose syrup production plant
8. Ion exchange process in corn glucose syrup production plant
The Ion exchange process is using the resin to remove the tiny foreign items and bad odor to get high quality pure glucose syrup.
The resin need regeneration by acid and alkali washing after working for some days
Evaporation process equipment
9. Evaporation process in corn glucose syrup production plant
The evaporation process is evaporate the water inside the glucose syrup to increase the DS of glucose syrup.
Usually it need multi-effect evaporator work together with the single effect evaporator for producing high DS glucose syrup.
10. Final product storage in corn glucose syrup production plant
The glucose syrup which reach the required DS in the evaporation process will be pumped into final product storage tanks for storage.
The final product tank can keep the glucose syrup purity before transportation.
