Sefar Filter Solutions for the Food Industry
To cope with the large variety of separation tasks within food applications, Sefar developed a dedicated range of filter solutions and fabrication technologies in order to maximize the performance of filter equipment. We focus on several aspects of filtration: the cost of production, level of dryness, the level of separation or product productivity as well as safety in food. By using Sefar products you have the guarantee to purchase the most advanced product for your application.
Today, drying processes are widely used in food processing. In many cases vacuum belt dryers are the method of choice due to their efficiency in handling large volumes and having a gentle drying process.
Typical applications and products:
Bakery products (yeast)
Fruit juice concentrate
Basic chemical products
Specialized nutritional products
Hydrolyzed vegetable proteins (HVP)
Starch and gluten
The extraction and processing of starch from agricultural commodities is one of the most important agro-industries worldwide. Using corn, wheat, potatoes, tapioca and rice as raw materials, about 49 million tons of starch is produced and processed annually.
While mainly used in the food and beverage industries, starch is also useful for a number of applications and industries including textiles, paper, plywood, adhesives and pharmaceuticals.
Sefar filters for rotary drum vacuum filters
Rotary drum and vacuum filters are used in starch and gluten dewatering processes and in the polishing process of syrup as a so-called pre-coating filtration. Sefar has great experience in the optimization of filtration processes in the corn wet milling industry. Our experts will work to ensure that your final filter product is of the highest quality and performance.
Centrifuges – with Sefar always on line
The starch dewatering process is a trade-off between capacity and dryness of the product. Whereas drum and belt filters are continuous filtration processes, centrifuges are batch processes. Their ability to obtain a dryer product makes them an alternative to continuous systems. In cases where an output having the best possible dryness from the starch dewatering process is more important than a continuous process, liner centrifuges are a common solution.
Sefar offers a variety of screens and belts to accommodate any dryer type.
Very fine screens are available for the production of ’Angel Hair’ and other small-size pasta products. Our fine screens and belts are made from the same durable materials used in Sefar medium and heavy-duty screen products.
