How to process cassava starch from cassava?
As a professional cassava processing machine manufacturer and supplier, I have received many inquiries about cassava starch. Here I am so glad to share how to process cassava starch from cassava with you. The cassava starch production process mainly includes cleaning, crushing, extracting,refining and drying.
①Cleaning: to clean off the impurities attached with cassava raw material
First, use a dry sieve to remove the larger impurities on the cassava raw material, such as small rocks and weeds; then, paddle washing machine will wash the surface of the cassava raw material, such as sediment and other impurities, and it also has the role of peeling.
②Crushing: to grind the cassava into starch pulp
The cleaned cassava will be cut into chunks by the cutting machine and then placed into the rasper to get the starch pulp.
③Extracting: to separate the fiber and cassava starch slurry
The starch pulp after grinding to the centrifuge sieve will be screened out to separate starch and fiber; Then, a fine fiber sieve is used to remove the fiber, leaving cassava starch pulp, which has great effects on separating the pulp and slag in the production process of cassava starch.
④Refining：to remove the protein and cell fluid from the starch emulsion
A hydro-cyclone station is then used to remove the protein and cell fluid from the starch emulsion, which is an extremely important step in the production of cassava starch. By doing this, you may concentrate abd delicate scrubbing starch milk.
⑤Drying: to dehydrate the starch milk into cassava starch
Using a peeler centrifuge to dehydrate the starch milk into the wet starch powder with about 40% moisture, and then put it into the flash dryer for drying treatment. Finally, the dried starch is screened by vibration sieve to obtain cassava starch.
