Pilot Plant

Equipment

The pilot plant comprises three different fermenters and is in its configuration a replica of the production plant. With the process control system the fermentation process is controlled in all details. Due to the plant's flexibility the influences of each parameter change can be perfectly depictured for the process yields. The plant is equipped with a CIP station. The fermenter and separator are sterilised with hot air. The plant also includes a homogeniser and an ultrafiltration system. The concentrate drying can be performed by means of lyophilisation or spray drying.
