TEC Square has developed a simple and effective way to extract coffee, tea or, for example, soybeans continuously. The process is based on some very simple design principles:
- Effective mixing of ingredients in water.
- Grinding of ingredients online, without contact with air.
- Effective separation of liquid and solid phase, where needed.
- The solid phase can be washed and the remaining solids can be recovered.
- The liquid phase is sent to a final cleaning operation.
This process can be improved by additional extraction steps if necessary.
This extraction method is rather simple and can be operated in a 1-turn operation if necessary. It is ideal for Multi-SKU production programs and is easy to clean. During long runs, this system provides quality and consistency.
This extraction system is very versatile and can be used for a variety of products.
- Removing cold brew coffee
- Soy milk extraction
- Removing vegan drinks
- Protein extraction
- Removing rice milk
- Removing almond milk
- Barley milk extraction
- Pea extraction
Characteristics and Advantages of our Continuous Extraction Process
Our continuous extraction technology is based on mixing of water and ingredients. Thereafter, the mix is further milled and extracted in a continuous mode.
Continuous operation for more than 48 hours is possible, favourising a low OPEX.
Aroma and Taste
Our technology provides solutions to remove any unwanted taste profile.
Low product losses, as we include a wash-step in the design.
Other food stuffs and plants can be extracted on the same installation. We provide solutions for:
Hygienic execution, and the central CIP plant can be used for inline CIP.
Lower Capital expenditure as batch-based extraction systems.
