An improvement in the resistance of isoelectric soya protein precipitate to capillary shear disruption was achieved by aging in a stirred tank. The aggregate strength was found to depend on the extent and duration of agitation prior to exposure to shear. An optimum value of an aging parameter Gt approximately 10(5) was determined, where G is the rms velocity gradient in the aging vessel and tis the time of aging. The disruption of precipitate aggregates by exposure to high rates of shear for… CONTINUE READING
