The grain husks from which various active ingredients are extracted to produce both solid and liquid biostimulants originate from northern Mexico (Monterrey, Nuevo Leon). In the first step, they are placed in a water bath, where an active substance is extracted via a special hydrolysis process. The medium is heated to above 65 degrees Celsius.
Then the mixture of grain husks and water is pumped to the separator. The separated solid is a raw material for producing organic compost, which is part of the product line of solid biostimulants. The separated liquid is used to produce liquid biostimulants.
A FAN separator has been used for this process since January, 2022. Innovak was seeking to optimize its production processes and reduce the workload since the entire process was originally managed by hand. This involved significant risks with a medium temperature of 65 degrees. Ensuring a sufficient quality of the liquid phase is also important. It must not contain any solids. Plus, the separation must be completed within fixed time periods, making it especially important for the equipment to continue functioning reliably without incidents. This is now all guaranteed by the FAN PSS, securing the production of valuable biostimulants for use around the world.
