Abstract

A new system for continuous juices clarification is presented. The bioreactor combines microporous plates commercially available and industrial pectinases immobilized on nylon membranes in a cross-flow configuration. The kinetic behaviour of the reactor for different recirculation flow rates has been determined. Fresh apricot juice has been continuously clarified in the bioreactor with excellent results.
