Industrial applications for the preparation of liquid ferment and levain

We offer individual fermentation tanks as well as fully automated plants with CIP for the continuous production of liquid ferment.
Our liquid ferment plants operate from wheat and rye flour, over 1 or 3 fermentation cycles, from starters or mother sourdough. Each tank individually allows to mix / ferment / then cool and hold the preparation. The ingredients are measured, mixed, and homogenized using the impeller and stirring tools. The blade rotation cycle is personalized by phases (3 phases) and for each cycle (hot/cold) over a period of 3 to 24 hours. Preheating is possible to accelerate the microbial activity. Oxygen can be replaced by an inert gas for better control of the microbial activity. The fermentation process is controlled using predefined temperatures and cycle times or by continuously monitoring the pH value. The slurry is then cooled to maintain a temperature of 4 to 6°C.

For the preparation of “organic levain”, the batch is homogenized with 20-30% of mother.
For continuous applications, the levain is automatically recirculated from tank to tank to clean each section individually while allowing continuous production.
