Acid Hydrolysis and Ethanol Precipitation for Glucomannan Extraction from Crude Porang (Amorphophallus Oncophyllus) Tuber Flour

Extraction of glucomannan from crude porang flour by acid hydrolysis and ethanol precipitation was studied. Effects of acid concentration, temperatures and time were investigated, kinetics model of the process was developed and the parameters were evaluated based on experimental data. New data on yield and purity of glucomannan under various conditions were obtained.

Методика розрахунку прямотечійного та протитечійного екстракторів для екстрагування цільових компонентів з шару пористих структур

This paper is devoted to the method of extraction unit calculation of periodical action for direct flow and return flow of extraction processes based on an analysis of the kinetics of extraction of components of the porous structures of minerals and seeds plant material under a constant driving force. Запропонована методика розрахунку прямотечійного та протитечійного екстракторів безперервної дії на основі аналізу кінетики екстрагування цільових компонентів з пористих структур мінеральної сировини та насіння рослинної сировини в умовах постійної рушійної сили. 

Development of Mathematical Models of External Mass Exchange under Conditions of Vibroextraction from Vegetable Raw Materials

We present results of development of mathematical models of external mass exchange in extraction of desired products from vegetable raw materials and mathematical models for the determination of the minimum time of achievement of the equilibrium state of the system and the current concentration of a soluble substance for their using in the optimization of operation of solid-phase extraction equipment.

Mass Exchange of Dispersed Materials Encapsulating in Quasi-Liquefaction State

Experimental and analytical investigations of mass exchange during dispersed materials encapsulating in quasi-liquefaction state are presented. The mass transfer coefficients during encapsulating have been determined for different dispersed materials depending on air rate.
