  • Publication number: 20230079820
    Abstract: A method and system for air classification of a milled feed stock includes generating a feed stream by combining the milled feed stock with at least one gasflow element, wherein the milled feed stock includes a plurality of particle sizes. The method and system includes directing the feed stream across a curvilinear surface, such that the milled feed stock in the feed stream separates into a plurality of classification streams, each of the plurality of classification streams based on the particle sizes of the milled feed stock. Therein, the method and system separates the plurality of classification streams and collects each of the plurality of classification streams, thereby classifying the milled feed stock contained therein based on the particle sizes for each of the plurality of classification streams.

  • Publication number: 20220000142
    Abstract: A method provides for removing oil content from a source material and extracting protein from the source material prior to generating a protein concentrate, including decorticating the source material, the source material having a protein and an oil content therein, the decorticating to remove a cortex from the source material. The method includes creating a flour from the source material having the cortex removed therefrom, removing at least a portion of the oil content from the flour by generating a solvent mixture by mixing the flour with a solvent and extracting a de-oiled flour from the solvent mixture, including oil and sugars extracted from the flour. The solvent may include supercritical CO2, subcritical CO2, ethanol, or a combination thereof. The method includes drying the de-oiled flour using at least one dryer and extracting a protein concentrate from the de-oiled flour.
