Producing Potato Starch
Potato starch is used in a wide variety of applications. In addition to its classical use in the food industry, for example, it is also used as a technical starch in the paper and chemical industries. Since potatoes have a high water content of 75%, the manufacture of potato starch is costly and difficult.
As a result, potato starch factories have the challenge of reducing their consumption of fresh water and energy while still producing high starch quality. This is why Flottweg has developed decanters and belt presses for the production of potato starch. With our machines, resources are spared and top product quality is achieved.
Flottweg Industrial Centrifuges for Potato Starch
Flottweg Industrial Centrifuges and Belt Presses are especially used in the potato industry for the production of:
- Potato starch
