About the production of glucose in plants,Henan Doing Company can offer you the equipment and production technology to you for production of glucose in plants, for another, also can help you to design your plant layout.
About the production of glucose in plants, that's to say you need to set up a plant for glucose production, then this need to equipped with the complete set of equipment and the glucose production process technology. Henan Doing Company can offer you the equipment and production technology to you for production of glucose in plants, for another, also can help you to design your plant layout.
DOING glucose production plant design
First of all, about the glucose production technology, mainly can divided into three parts:
1. Raw material preparation-conditioning of starch milk:
As we all know, starch is the raw material used for glucose syrup production, and the feedstock for production of glucose in plants requests the starch milk reach a purity ranging from 98-99% pf starch in dry substance. So the first step is mixing starch with water in special tanks, homogenize starch slurry then complete the raw material preparation.
2. Starch hydrolysis-liquefaction and saccharification:
The conversion process from starch to syrup is carried out as a two-step enzymatic process.
(1) In the liquefaction step, the starch slurry is treated with enzymes and fed to a jet cooker, where the starch is pre-liquefied for the production of glucose in plants. This solution is cooled down in an expansion vessel and placed in an intermediate storage tank for final liquefaction.
(2) In the saccharification tanks, further enzymes are added to convert the dextrin into glucose and minor amounts of higher sugars (maltose, isomaltose, maltotriose etc.) for production of glucose in plants. By carefully adjusting the process parameters, DE values of up to 98% can be reached within 30–60 hours for saccharification time cost.
3. Purification-syrup isolation and concentration:
For the isolation of suspended particles such as fibers and proteins, DOING offers a broad range of filtration technologies. State of the art polymer, sintered metal or ceramic cross flow membranes can be employed with the aim to recover the separated solids as a valuable animal fodder. Filter press, drum filter, etc are widely used for the production of glucose in plants isolation process, to seperate the impurities out.
Further purification of the filtered solution is done in a pair of strong acidic and weak basic ion exchang column. Color bodies and foreign tastes are reduced to a minimum by activated carbon treatment. This is done either by passing through vessels filled with granular activated carbon or by suspending and subsequent filtering of the activated carbon powder. This consists of the purification part in the production of glucose in plants, main machines adopted is plate frame filter press and ion exchange column.
Ion exchange column
To concentrate the solution, a finely tuned system of multiple effect plate type or falling film evaporators is deployed. It is heated by steam and powered by mechanical or thermal vapor re-compression, thus ensuring utmost energy efficiency in combination with minimal thermal stress for the product. In the production of glucose in plants, we have several types syrup evaporator can manufacturer for you, we will suggest you the most suitable one according to your requests.
The final dry substance content is adjusted to the market demand, or to the subsequent processing steps.
Glucose syrup production plant
Secondly, the main machinery used for production of glucose in plants include: mixing tank, jet cooker, liquefaction tanks, saccharification tank, filter press, ion exchange column, syrup evaporator, etc.
Finally, to sum up, among gave an outline of Doing Company machine and technology serviced for production of glucose in plant. It's worth to say that our company has mastered the mature technology which can use the rice/ broken rice to produce glucose directly. If you adopt the potato/ sweet potato/ cassava as raw material to produce glucose, we also can give you the starch processing machines.
