Research Mandate
Downstream Processing

  • Separation of insoluble products such a biomass, insoluble particle and macromolecules which will include filtration, centrifugation, coagulation & flocculation.

  • Recovery of intracellular products by cell disruption which maybe mechanical or non mechanical.

  • Design of filters used for filtration of fruit juices & fermented fruit.

  • Separation of soluble products as fermented food by liquid - liquid extraction, aq. two phase extraction, precipitation, adsorption, dialysis, reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration, cross flow filtration, microfiltration, chromatography, electrophoresis & electrodialysis.

  • Concentration of fruit products by crystallization and drying (vacuum tray drier, freeze drying, rotary drum drying, spray dryer and pneumatic pump dryer.
