The New Seed extractor is an industrial-scale machine designed to create concentrated distillates of food ingredients for the health supplements industry. New Seed, based in Japan, came to PI to help them develop a process that would harness the healthy benefits of soybeans in a supplement form which could be added to other food and drinks. While the company had created bench-top models to prove the concept, they needed a partner that could design a full-scale system and optimize the process at an industrial scale.
For New Seed, PI optimized the extraction process for industrial scale and developed the entire system completely in-house. PI’s engineering team fabricated and tested a pilot run of the machines for delivery to the client’s lab where they are used for ongoing research.
