PIGNAT Concentration Crystallization – CCE2000



Study and observe the concentration crystallization process on syrups, juices and milk.

  • Batch evaporation/crystallization under reduced pressure
  • Boiling and concentration of food preparations.
  • Study different types of stirrers:
    • Three-blade propeller
    • Turbine
    • Anchor

Proposed experiments:

  1. Concentration of dairy products:
    • Observe concentration
    • Observe foaming
  2. Concentrate then crystallize sugar solution.
  3. Study the influence of different stirrer blades on final product quality.
  4. Clean the unit.
