The easy way to optimize the taste of plant-based drinks

The fibre content of a plant-based drink has a major influence on its taste and mouthfeel. Setting the right balance in the separation process and leaving the right amount of fine fibres in the product therefore has a big impact on its success on the market.

With PondCtrl you can easily adjust the separation in your decanter, making it possible to finetune the taste and mouthfeel of your product, all while the decanter is operating.

Hear product and application specialists Peter Jørgensen and Rikard Krook explain how you can benefit from PondCtrl.


Increase decanter uptime in vegetable proteins production

As with all processes in the food industry, frequent cleaning is key in vegetable proteins production in order to ensure product quality and food safety. With PondCtrl you optimize the cleaning of your decanter centrifuge, and facilitate starting and stopping procedures, resulting in increased uptime and yield.

In addition, PondCtrl makes it easy to adjust the process to compensate for variations in the feedstock and ensure a stable product quality.

How it works

The PondCtrl system is perfect for applications where decanters are operated with a high liquid level in order to maximize separation performance. In these cases, PondCtrl greatly facilitates daily operation and offers a range of benefits.
