By using membrane technology to re-concentrate juice solids from rinsewater, full strength juice can be recovered.
During orange juice processing, changes of product or periodic cleaning of the plant often leaves significant volumes of partly diluted juice purged from vessels and lines. This juice may be slightly diluted to say 10.3% solids, compared to full strength juice at 12.25% solids and has no commercial value (or even a negative value as a pollution load).
By using membrane technology to increase the concentration of solids and remove some of the water, full strength juice can be recovered. Here is an example of the economics.
