From Past to Present: Wine

The land of Anatolia, where such myths go through wine; is the starting point of viticulture and therefore production of wine. When we look at the archaeological finds, which are the most realistic evidence for us, there are many indicators showing that the Hittites are interested in viticulture and wine in 2000 BC. Sculptures containing wine figures and drinking pots from that period are the most important findings.

Secret of Quality in Whey Production

Whey is one of the most important by-products of milk technology. In general, remaining liquid as a result of processing milk to cheese is called whey, and contains high amount of significant nutrients such as vitamin B and protein. Because of that feature, whey is used as a source of protein in many products, from sports drinks to baby foods, from food supplements to drugs. The use of whey in such a wide range of products leads to the need for more sensitive and more effective process need in production. The requirement of these processes is the clarifiers and cream separators. The separators for milk and whey applications designed by Polat Makina provide the best result in increasing the efficiency and profitability by meeting the expectations of our manufacturers like you in price/performance.

Tradition Coming from Centuries Ago: Wheat

The use of starch, the most important compound of wheat, which has vital importance in the history of civilization, dates back to the pre-dynastic period of the Egyptians. During this period, starch obtained from wheat was first used as an adhesive to bond papyrus papers. The scientific writing of the starch production process was carried out by the Roman statesman Marcus Porcius Cato (Sage Cato), who lived between 234-149 BC. Wheat starch production in the middle ages became an important industry in the Netherlands, and for a long time, it was considered to be of high quality. The first form of starch modification applied in this period emerged as a result of the hydrolysis of starch with vinegar.

Our New Design: Centripetally Decanter

As Polat Makina, we also take into account the efforts to market a product that can always be competitive in the sector from every angle and in this context, we direct our designs. In the pandemic process that we have entered since the first quarter of 2020, societies have fallen into more consumer positions and food consumption in the market has increased significantly, which has required us to take on new roles in the process. As a result of our work in 2020, especially in line with the needs of the citrus sector, we were happy to bring a new product to the sector and Polat Makina. This product, which we call ”Centripetally Decanter”, is aimed to be among the preferences of food organizations with such productions as especially orange juice, mandarin juice, apple juice, etc.
