Removing pulp from oat milk

Liquid solid separator removes oat pulp from oat milk solution to achieve smooth consistency of the final product

When processing milk alternatives, such as oat milk, it is essential for food manufacturers to remove oversize contamination from the final product to achieve a smooth consistency. A food manufacturer was looking for a liquid solid separator to remove oat pulp from the oat milk solution to improve product quality, whilst also achieving their desirable throughput rates. 

Oat milk is a nondairy and lactose-free alternative drink to cow’s milk, which is made from oats that have been soaked in water, blended and then strained. The pulp can be used in other food products, such as porridge or cookies. It is expected that the oat milk market will increase over the next 5 years, due to the rise in consumers seeking alternative products to dairy milk. Therefore, the need for manufacturers to find an effective solution to increase their throughput rates to meet demand has become increasingly important. 

This demonstration video shows how the Russell Liquid Solid Separator™, a solid-liquid separation machine processes 200l of oat milk solution, separating the oat pulp from the oat milk, which is transferred into the unit from a mixing tank using a diaphragm pump. The throughput rate achieved by this unit is one that is vastly superior to traditional separators, and is easily able to process this oat milk solution in a quick timeframe.  


The Liquid Solid Separator™ is a multi-purpose unit that separates soft and fibrous solids from liquids. Its centrifugal action provides high-capacity separation down to 20 microns, which makes it suitable for materials such as pulps and fibers or even latex emulsions. Processing and discharging liquids and solids simultaneously, the separator allows for continuous production, improving productivity and reducing excess waste.
