Grating machine is important equipment required for processing sweet potatoes into starch. In the market, there are hammer mill machine, rotary knife machine, cutting and rasper machine for farmers to choose. While compared with the first two types, cutting and rasper machines, with their high efficiency and productivity, are more widely configured in the automatic sweet potato starch processing line to realize the requirement of high starch yield and quality. This two-stage grating, a cutting machine in the first stage used to cut the sweet potatoes into pieces and a rasper machine in the second stage to grate the sweet potatoes into a slurry completely, ensures that the maximum amount of starch is extracted from the sweet potatoes.
Separating machine, this equipment is required to improve the purity of final sweet potato starch by separating the coarse fibers out of the sweet potato slurry. For the types of separating equipment, round sieve and centrifugal sieve are often purchased by clients. Centrifugal sieve, with different capacities and advanced separating technology, is more suitable for automatic sweet potato starch processing line.

Hydrocyclone group is refining equipment required to improve the quality of final sweet potato starch. As we all know, the quality of starch influences the sale of starch products, while the refining effect of refining machine defines the quality of starch. This machine is used to separate the protein and cell saps from sweet potato milk. Clients can choose different numeral configuration of this equipment to realize different refining requirements.
Drying equipment is required to remove moisture and process dry sweet potato starch. A plate frame filter press and a flash dryer will be used to reach this aim. The former can dehydrate the excessive water from starch milk, and the later adopt negative pressure drying principle to dry the starch when it pass through the hot airflow.
