Steam injection heating is helpful in a variety of markets and industries, but each project is unique. At ProSonix, we've worked on projects of all sizes and levels of complexity. With that experience comes valuable knowledge. Our team is happy to share a few summaries from past projects which may help provide insight and ideas for your own application.
Ethanol Production - Starch Liquefaction
Ethanol (ethyl alcohol or grain alcohol) is produced through a liquefaction process whereby a starch is converted to a sugar, which is then converted to an alcohol product referred to as ethanol. Ethanol production requires a starch (corn, wheat, rye) based feedstock to supply the conversion process.
Starch Processing Corn Wet Milling
Corn wet milling is the process of separating the corn kernel into starch, protein, germ and fiber in an aqueous medium prior to fermentation. The primary products of wet milling include starch and starch-derived products (e.g. high fructose corn syrup and ethanol), corn oil, corn gluten, and corn germ.
