Lutein Extraction And Concentrator Processing Production Line

Lutein is kind of xanthophyll and one of naturally occurring carotenoids. Usually lutein coexists with its isomer zeaxanthin, and they can be interconverted in the body. Lutein is synthesized only by plants.Humans and mammals must obtain lutein from food.Lutein is not only a natural coloring agent, but also great material for supplements.


Lutein Extraction And Concentrator Processing Production Line



The production process of Lutein extraction typically involves several steps. Here is a general outline of the process:

Raw material selection:
The main raw materials of lutein are green leafy vegetables and citrus fruits. When selecting, you need to consider the quality and yield of the raw materials to ensure that the lutein content in the raw materials is high enough.

Main Equipment Function Introduction

Lutein is mainly extracted by solvent extraction. First, chop the raw materials and add them to the solvent for soaking. Then, through stirring and heating, the solvent is fully contacted with the lutein in the raw material to promote the lutein to dissolve in the solvent. Finally, the lutein in the solvent is separated by filtration and concentration.


Depending on the extraction method and desired purity, further purification steps may be employed. These can include techniques like precipitation, chromatography, or membrane filtration to isolate and purify specific compounds.


The filtered extract may undergo a concentration process to increase the concentration of the desired compounds. This can be achieved through techniques like evaporation or vacuum distillation, which remove the solvent and concentrate the active components.


The concentrated and purified extract is dried to remove any remaining moisture. This can be achieved through methods such as spray drying, freeze-drying, or vacuum drying. Drying helps to stabilize the extract and enhance its s


The tank is equipped with CIP cleaning automatic rotating spray ball, temperature gauge, pressure gauge, explosion-proof sightglass lamp, sight glass, quickopening feeding port, etc., to ensure easy operation and meet GMP standards. The inner cylinder of the equipment is made of 304 and 316L.
