The market for food, food ingredients & beverages is dynamically growing world-wide, with different challenges.
In growing countries as China, India, Russia and in South America, Eastern Europe areas, the population requires more and high-grade food & drinks. In mature markets as USA and Western Europe, people ask for convenience and healthy products. Natural highs, one-step convenience, foraged ingredients, flavours-full benefits and next generation proteins will be the key food & drink trends in the near future.
The Food, food ingredients and beverages industry must comply with high hygiene standards, requiring efficient and flexible processing systems in order to be competitive and able to quickly adapt to changing market demands.
In the most processing plants for food & beverage products, e.g. dairy, fruit and vegetable juice, protein solution, sugar, starch products, yeast extract, malt extract, coffee & tea extract, herb and meat extracts, hydrolisates, gelatine, etc. an evaporation step is required to concentrate the thin product. The evaporation technology is often required for by-products concentration in the food industry, like yeast and wheat stillage, corn steep liquor, fish stick water, meat effluent, etc., which can be sold as feedstock for animal nutrition or as organic fertilizers.
3V Tech supplies evaporation systems for smooth concentration of liquid foods and evaporation plants for by-products from the food industry.
Customized system design, e.g. multiple-effect, thermal vapour recompression, mechanical vapour recompression or combined technologies can be applied in order to achieve the appropriate energy-saving plant arrangement.
