Food and beverages manufacturers utilized heating mechanisms to prolong product shelf life. As heating mechanism plays an important role, heat transfer has to be efficient and fast to preserve the nutrition in food and beverages. HISAKA's heat exchanger is designed with reliable and hygienic parts. We worked with Food and Beverage manufacturers to maximize their plant efficiency.

Looking for ways to maximize the energy efficiency of your food & beverage plant? HISAKA Thermal Products could be the solution.

Process Flow Diagram

Fermentation Process

Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) can be made from sugar cane by using the fermentation process.

First, sugarcane is squeezed to produce raw molasses. Where the raw molasses will undergo fermentation inside a fermentation tank. After fermentation, the raw molasses will derive into glutamates which will be collected in a tank.

Collected glutamates will then be crystalized and undergo drying to become Monosodium Glutamate.

Where can we apply heat recovery in the MSG fermentation process?

1. Before fermentation tank - Heat exchanger can be installed after the fermentation tank to heat up raw molasses before undergoing fermentation.

Our Suggestion On Common Maintenance Issues

High viscosity liquid clogging
Issue 1: High viscosity liquid clogging

This issue may occur due to the molasses is not completely dissolve in the solution in the fermentation process line. The undissolved molasses is thick and viscous which causes fouling inside the PHE. This will reduce the heat transfer performance of the unit.

HISAKA suggestions:
  • Consult HISAKA specialist to change a bigger plate gap pattern, our LX-Model.
  • As a temporary solution, you can increase the number of plates.
  • Prepare a standby unit.
