Produce a high-value alternative protein product

MSC produces Still Pro 50, a 50% purity protein product that trades in the alternative high-value protein market and is a unique blend of spent brewer’s yeast and corn gluten meal. The protein has shown great success in the pet food, aqua, dairy, poultry, and swine markets. It’s an excellent way to significantly diversify your plant’s revenue stream.

MSC System at UWGP
The MSC system produces high-value protein, increases oil yield, and also improves plant operations by clarifying thin stillage, de-bottlenecking DDGS dryers, and producing a cleaner backset stream to enhance fermentation.

MSC LTEModular Protein Production

  • Thin sillage and back set clarification
  • Throughput gain
  • Reduced evaporator loading and dryer loading
  • Significant oil gain
  • Patented, proven 50% protein separation
  • 12 months project start to protein production
  • Produces up to 1.5-2.0 lbs/bu protein
  • Proven product value above soybean meal

Protein production now comes in two sizes

If cost is holding you back from trying new technology to diversify your ethanol plant’s revenue, FQT would like to introduce you to MSC LTE technology.

MSC LTE uses the same proven technology and offers the same plant benefits as our original MSC (Maximized Stillage Co-products) at a price point that gives more facilities the ability to create a diverse and proven revenue stream.

TSCThin Stillage Clarification

    • Reduces load on dryers, resulting in capacity gain
    • Lessens residual solids in backset
    • Results in additional 0.2 lb/bu oil yield
    • Increases plant throughput capacity more than 5%

Energy savings now, protein production later

If you want to get your ethanol plant moving toward MSC or MSC LTE technology, consider adding Thin Stillage Clarification first. TSC is the first step in protein production, reducing solids from thin stillage and allowing plants to realize efficiency gains. It removes suspended solids from thin stillage and backset, which significantly improves evaporator performance, resulting in efficiency gains and increased oil yield. TSC also removes unfermentable solids from backset, providing more room for additional starch in fermentation. This is a fundamental step toward co-product diversification, at an entry-level capital investment

SGTSelective Grind Technology

  • >3.0% increase in ethanol yield
  • >30% increase in oil yield
  • Utilized in >900MGPY production

Increase ethanol and oil yields

The SGT System is installed in the mash cook process to expose more starch for conversion to ethanol and to shear open the germ to release more corn oil. The SGT system reduces starch in DDGS which reduces dryer loading and increases DDGS ProFat levels. FQT provides customized systems based on plant size and objectives. These include various screen and mill sizes and custom flow setups to achieve industry-leading yields. The FQT SGT grind mills are installed with the auto-gap adjuster to optimize milling performance automatically.
U.S. Patent No. 9,012,191 and 9,689,003

sgt technology
52″ Grind Mill SGT Installation • 2 Stage 36″ Grind Mill Test Skid
FQT SGT systems average >3% ethanol yield increases and >30% oil yield increases. These industry leading yields are 84% greater (ethanol) and 97% greater (oil) than similar competing technologies per published data.

FBPFiber By-Pass System

  • Remove fiber pre-fermentation
  • Produce a cellulosic ethanol feedstock
  • Increase fermenter capacity
  • Up to 10% plant throughput gain
  • Reduces distillation energy

Increase capacity

Fiber By-Pass separates fiber pre-fermentation and allows for up to a 10% increase in fermenter capacity which can boost plant throughput. FBP can be utilized to produce a pure fiber which is an excellent feedstock for cellulosic ethanol or industrial applications. Fiber can be recombined with stillage to produce traditional DDGS or sold separately achieving a higher-protein DDGS.
U.S. Patent No. 9,012,191 and 9,689,003

fbp technology
Fiber By-Pass Systems significantly reduce un-fermentable solids in fermentation and distillation. The FBP Systems improve viscosity for downstream operations.

BOSBrix Oil Separation

  • High quality, low FFA oil (5-7% FFA)
  • Recover front end and back end oil
  • Total oil yield >1.0 lb/Bu

Recover corn oil from liquefaction

The BOS system separates free corn oil from liquefaction prior to fermentation. Recovering corn oil on the front end with BOS lowers the free oil content in fermentation. This allows for more oil extraction through fermentation and back-end oil yields are still significant. One Fluid Quip TritonTM centrifuge can treat the entire liquefaction stream at a 50MMGY ethanol facility.
U.S. Patent No. 9,732,302

bos technology
The BOS system increases overall oil yield by recovering corn oil from liquefaction in addition to a plant’s back-end oil stream

Produce a low-cost sugar stream for biochemicals

The CST System produces an equivalent sugar quality to that of a corn wet mill process at a >30% cost reduction. CST not only produces an industrial sugar stream, it also yields a high-value corn oil stream and can produce valuable animal feed products including a high-purity protein stream. The renewable chemicals market is growing rapidly and requires a significant carbohydrate source. CST can be bolted on to a current ethanol facility to provide a sugar slip-stream to meet those needs and significantly diversify a plant’s revenue streams.
