  • Patent number: 11066440
    Abstract: A process for increasing protein yield from biomass (beans, oilseeds, cereals, nuts, rice, soybeans, bran, etc.), as well as, for reducing the amount of chemical and biological reagents used in the process, involves application of multiple hydrodynamic cavitation treatments of a biomass suspension or other combination of biomass with solvents and reagents—in the preparation, extraction, and processing or the biomass and proteins. The biomass suspension is preferably subjected to at least three cavitation treatments in order to facilitate the crushing of biomass, splitting of fibers, and rupture of cell membranes, thereby increasing the mass transfer surface area and intensifying the extraction of protein and lipids. At the stage of washing and neutralization the protein solution may be subjected to a fourth cavitation treatment to obtain the purified protein.

  • Patent number: 10995015
    Abstract: A system and method for the purification of beverage fluids, primarily alcohol beverages, based on the action of hydrodynamic cavitation processing of microbiological and chemical contaminants, micro particles and colloidal particles. The system is a batch system with a single vessel having an extraction tube and discharge tube extending into the same reservoir of fluid. Fluid is drawn through the extraction tube and forced through the discharge tube. The discharge tube contains cavitation elements dispersed along its length to generate hydrodynamic cavitation in the fluid as it is pumped through. The discharge fluid is mixed with the fluid already in the vessel and is re-drawn through the extraction tube in continuous batch processing.

  • Patent number: 10954140
    Abstract: A system and method of the purification of drinking water, ethanol and alcohol beverages is based on the action of hydrodynamic cavitation processing of microbiological and chemical contaminants, micro particles and colloidal particles. The fluid flow moves at a high rate through a multi-stage cavitation device and filtration module to generate hydrodynamic cavitation features in the fluid flow. The cavitation features generate changes in the velocity, pressure, temperature, chemical composition and physical properties of the liquid. The cavitation features also prevent the deposition of contaminants upon and remove contaminants from the surface of the filter module, reduce the load on the filter elements and increase the life of the filter module.

  • Patent number: 9988651
    Abstract: A process for increasing alcohol yield from biomass (the form or agro- or forest residue, grains, hops, etc.), involving multiple hydrodynamic cavitation treatments of biomass filtrate—both before and after fermentation. Carbohydrates extracted from biomass are subjected to a first cavitation treatment to promote additional conversion into carbohydrates. The carbohydrates are then combined with bacterial species and nutrients, and allowed to ferment. The fermentation product is subjected to a second hydrodynamic cavitation treatment to promote further conversion of carbohydrates into bioalcohol. After distillation, the bioalcohol is subjected to a second hydrodynamic cavitation treatment to increase its purity.
