Vitamins are essential organic compounds for the human body, playing a crucial role in maintaining life and promoting health.

Vitamins can be classified into two major types: water-soluble and oil-soluble, mainly including vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and K. These vitamins participate in various physiological processes within the human body, such as metabolism, immune system function maintenance, and skeletal health. Since the human body cannot synthesize most vitamins on its own, they need to be obtained through food or supplements.

Typical Case: Vitamin C

Technologies can be offered by SmarSEP:

Ceramic Ultrafiltration Membrane:

· Replaces traditional filtration methods such as pressure filters for clarifying fermentation broth.

· Improves permeate quality and reduces resin contamination in subsequent processes.

Reverse Osmosis Membrane:

· Used for concentrating gulonic acid to around 15% concentration.

· Ensuring good product quality through low-temperature concentration.

· Reduces energy consumption and lowers operational costs.

Continuous Ion Exchange:

· Replaces fixed-bed batch ion exchange.

· Significantly reduces resin usage and minimizes chemical and water consumption.

Chromatographic Separation:

· Used for the separation of gulonic acid and vitamin C.

· Turns waste into valuable resources, substantially improving overall process yield.
