Allow the current issue of the AFT Quarterly to take you inside the think tanks of the world of food technology and to introduce you to innovative solutions and research projects.
Rapidojet high-pressure hydration
A good solution here is to use the high-pressure moistening mixer “Rapidojet”.
The mode of operation of the patented method is amazingly simple – dry material is conveyed continuously into a vertical mixing tube (volumetrically or gravimetrically) by a dosing unit. There it is isolated in free fall after colliding with a deflector plate.
The liquid is ejected at high speed (250 – 500 km/h) through a high-pressure nozzle and broken down into tiny water drop-lets that meet the free-falling dry materials in the air.
CSIRO: Australian innovations for the food industry
CSIRO, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, is Australia’s national research agency and is celebrating a century of innovations that have made a difference to people, industry and the planet.
Our innovations contribute billions of dollars to the Australian economy – and others around the world - every year.
As the largest patent holder in Australia, our vast wealth of intellectual property has led to more than 150 spin-off companies. WiFi, polymer banknotes and the Total Wellbeing Diet are just some of our better known inventions.
