Disruptive extraction process for optimized valorization of functional nutrients with Turbex extractor

ANDRITZ Turbex operating principle

Turn your waste into a real gold mine with ANDRITZ Turbex disruptive extraction process

Turbex is a patented solid/liquid extractor based on a sequence of rotors and stators causing thousands of events per second (turbulence, shearing, and cavita­tion), in order to:

  • Obtain a higher yield in a shorter processing time
  • Provide an extraction process whose performance is unequalled
  • Improve product quality (as no oxidation is possible)
  • Generate additional revenue by converting by-prod­ucts into valuable food ingredients and nutrition supplements

Your benefits

  • Highest quality of polyphenols and proteins due to low extraction temperature and avoiding oxidation
  • Faster extraction than in the conventional pro­cess due to cavitation, resulting in more prod­uct in a shorter time
  • Up to 50% higher yield assisted by a counter-current process for better profitability
  • Reduced energy consumption by up to 30% compared to traditional processes which in turn leads to a faster return on investment
