Chestnut Extract
Over the years we have had a number of customer use our machine in food grade applications, everything from fresh pressed oils to yeasts in beer making. Recently a customer sent a sample of Chestnut extract to see how it could be clarified. Not being familiar with this extract we were excited to take a look. Unfortunately the sample was delayed in the mail over the holiday. At last it arrived. At first glance it appears to separate well.
This is how the sample arrived. It sat at the post office for over a week because of the holidays. It appears the sample has settled fairly well. When I opened the bottle the cork came off with a pop and it started bubbling over. Initially I thought maybe the elevation difference causes some gas to escape but after reading the customers note about refrigeration, I suspect the extract was starting to ferment a little.

Lots of bubbles. Samples after 5 minutes in the lab centrifuge. Left most sample is the control. The right two samples have been centrifuged. You can see a lot of particulate has dropped out. The color is notably lighter. Same samples as the last picture with a back light.

Close up of the stratified particulate. After 30 minutes in the lab centrifuge you can now see through the sample although it's hard to tell from the photo. With the back light you can see the graduation numbers through the sample. Control sample on the left of course.
