Andhra Pradesh is the largest producer, followed by Tamil Nadu. Spice cryo-grinding is relatively very advanced technology and hence there are very few units operating at present in India.
Spectra Cryogenic Systems Pvt. The trade statistics of sauces, dressings and condiments raw spices, ground spices and blended spices are part of condiments was INR Processed spices demand is directly linked with its consumption in food processing industry and this is set to grow in India in coming period with growth of population and fast changing food habits as well as increase in spending power of the middle and upper class in India.
Why Gujarat? The production of spices is likely to increase in the coming years, with irrigation facilities made available through Narmada Canal System, in spices growing area of Central and North Gujarat.
Gujarat is having ready availability of technical and commercial manpower as there are several spices processing units already operating. Entrepreneurs in Gujarat are readily adopting newer technologies and processes, used in food process industry in general and spices processing in particular, as a part of their continuous efforts to expand their business in domestic and export markets. Cryogenic grinding reduces the material to particle sizes, which is difficult to attain with ambient temperature grinding in conventional grinding plants.
The dry, cold, inert atmosphere, usually generated by a Liquid nitrogen vapor blanket or circulation in the grinder chamber, minimizes thermal reaction with the material and reduces the loss of volatile components from spices during processing.
Design of a cryogenic grinding system circuit gas mode Source: Hosokawa Alpine The advantages offered by Spices Cryo-grinding technology as against conventional spices grinding technology are as under: Cryogenic grinding improves the aroma by minimizing the loss of essential oils approx.

As prices for energy and raw materials rise and concern for the environment makes safe waste disposal difficult and Costly, resource recovery becomes a vital matter for today's business. Cryogenic grinding technology can efficiently grind most tough materials and can also facilitate Cryogenic recycling of tough composite materials and multi component scrap.
It employs a cryogenic process to embrittle and grind materials to achieve consistent particle size for a wide range of products. The cryogenic process also has a unique capability for recycling difficult to separate composite materials. The herbs are frozen with liquid nitrogen as they are being ground.
This process does not damage or alter the chemical composition of the plant in any way. These high temperatures can reduce volatile components and heat-sensitive constituents in herbs.
The cryogenic grinding process starts with air-dried herbs, rather than freeze-dried herbs. Solid materials are ground or pulverized by way of hammer mills, attrition mills, granulators or other equipment.
A smaller particle size is usually needed to enhance the further processing of the solid, as in mixing with other materials. A finer particle also helps in melting of rubber and plastics for molding. However, many materials are either very soft or very tough at room temperatures.
By cooling to cryogenic temperatures with liquid nitrogen, these may be embrittled and easily fractured into small particles. Phenomena that occurs at cryogenic temperatures include liquefaction and solidification of ambient gases; loss of ductility and embrittlement of some structural materials such as carbon steel; increase in thermal conductivity to a maximum value, followed by further decrease in temperature.
Cryogenics is the low temperature K refrigeration. It explains the properties of cryogens used and their principles.
Storage methods and handling techniques are covered.
Cryogenics are applied in different fields of production, transportation, medicine, aerospace, physics research etc. Rocket propulsion is imparting force to a flying vehicle such as missile or spacecraft. Different types of rockets and their parts are explained.
Cryogenics has future applications in many fields like superconductivity and propulsion fields. Cryogenics is being applied to variety of research areas; a few of which are: Rocket propulsion is the process of imparting a force to flying vehicle such as a missile, by momentum of ejected matter.
The matter, called propellant, is stored in the vehicle and ejected at high velocity.
In chemical rocket, the propellants are chemical compounds that undergo a chemical combustion reaction releasing the energy for thermodynamically accelerating and ejecting the gaseous reaction products at high velocities. Chemical rocket propulsion is thus differential from other types of rocket propulsion which use nuclear, solar or electrical energy as their power source and which may use mechanism other than adiabatic expansion of a gas for achieving high ejection velocities.
A scientifically controlled study using four herbs was conducted at Frontier Herbs in the Fall of , comparing cryogenic grinding methods with normal grinding methods. The herbs tested included feverfew, goldenseal, valerian and echinacea. In all cases the cryogenically ground herb contained greater amounts of the constituents tested.
Feverfew 8. Valerian root showed an Goldenseal root showed a Lastly, Echinacea purpurea root showed a Test results were obtained by HPLC high performance liquid chromatography methods. Cryogenic grinding was shown to significantly affect active constituent levels in herbs. Test results showed an average increase of The range was Gas Industry — in air separation. The volume of production of nitrogen and Oxygen by cryogenic separation of air is the important of the separation of air, refrigeration and separation.
In the separation column, the difference in the boiling points of the constituents of air is used to separate them out. As the source of gas. For example, the breathing oxygen needed for the pilots of the fighter aircraft is supplied by vaporizing liquid oxygen on board. In space research — as rocket propellant and for space simulation. The most important advantage of cryogenic fuels is that these have very high specific impulse when compared to other fuels specific impulse is kgs of thrust produced per kg of propellant per sec.
The value is approximately for cryogenic fuels whereas it is about for alcohol oxygen mixture. In biology — for preservation and in treatment of diseases. In food industry — for food handling and processing 6.
In electronics — both semiconductor and superconductor electronics for better signal to noise ratio speed etc 7. In miscellaneous applications such as cryogenic grinding , freezing pipelines for repairs, shrink fitting, fire fighting, etc 8. In nuclear and high — energy physics Metal fabrication All materials which due to their specific properties at ambient temperatures are elastic, have low melting points, contain volatile or oily substances, have low combustion temperatures and are sensitive to oxygen, are ideal candidates for cryogenic size reduction.
Physical properties of liquid nitrogen is produced by the separation of air into its components in an air separation plant and is distributed in vacuum insulated transport vessels to the end user where it is stored in a vacuum insulated storage vessel till it is used.
Nitrogen is anon-flammable, non toxic and inert gas which makes up It has the characteristics of an inert gas, except at highly elevated temperatures, and does not form any compound under normal temperatures and pressure. Drawn from the liquid phase, nitrogen generally has a purity of Once brittle the material is much easier to grind.
First, since each component generally would have a different coefficient of thermal contraction, high thermal stresses are created at the interface between the components due to rapid cryogenic cooling. Second, because each component material embrittles at different temperatures, it allows selective embritlement, which further enhances separation effectiveness. The most brittle components will undergo greater size reduction.
Through careful control of thermal stress and embritlement with operating temperature, cleaner separation and recovery of individual components are achieved. With our cryogenic grinding unit an understanding develops with interaction of equipment components and operating parameters.
