Production of Potato Starch With Flottweg Industrial Centrifuges

Saving Resources During Potato Starch Extraction

Potato starch is primarily used in the food industry. But what you probably don't know is that potato starch is also used in other applications, for example, as a technical starch in the paper and chemical industries. 

There are several reasons why the production of potato starch is both cost-intensive and difficult. First, it is important during the manufacturing process to reduce the consumption of fresh water and power. However, it is essential to achieve high starch quality. 

This is why Flottweg develops belt presses and decanters for potato starch manufacturing. 

Efficient Production of Potato Starch With Flottweg Industrial Centrifuges

With Flottweg industrial centrifuges and belt presses, potatoes can be processed to yield starch, protein, potato pulp and gratings. For each of these applications, Flottweg develops optimum process lines and supplies the appropriate decanter centrifuges. They can be used for the efficient extraction of starch, fibers and proteins from potatoes. That increases your productivity and reduces process costs.
