The Main Production Process of Potato Starch Production Line

Satisfactory Essays
Potatoes have been used as a source of raw material for high-quality starch for over 150 years. In addition to product quality, the consumption of fresh water and energy are now playing an ever more important role in potato starch production line. For this reason, Win Tone developed potato starch production line process lines which also convince users from these economic points of view. Our potato starch production line includes economic type and standardized type. Such as medium-sized and large-sized starch production lines. Calculation is based on the dry starch output. Because of our good factory design, processing art consultation, processing machinery manufacturing and after-sale service of spare parts, we have won a lot of customers. Stabilization of the POTATO STARCH PRODUCTION LINE is normally achieved by chemical modification to prevent these changes from occurring. We have now created a freeze–thaw-stable potato starch by alteration of starch composition and structure by genetic modification.
The main processes of potato production line are following:
1 Potatoes from local farmers are transported to the factory by trucks,
2 The potatoes are washed and rasped into fine particles in a rotating grater,
3 Fruit juice and solid matter are separated into two streams in a rotating decanter, 4 Fresh water is added to the stream of solid matter and pulp is separated from the starch by centrifugation
5 Starch is refined in hydro cyclones and vacuum filters,
6 The concentrated slurry is dried in a warm air stream until a final water content of 20%
7 The starch is stored and packed for final distribution to the market and sold as potato flour or potato starch.
The potato starch is then extracted followed by washing. The washing line consists of 3-phase nozzle separators in three stages working on the counter-current principle, fresh water only having to be supplied to the last stage.

    Starch based polymers can be based on crops such as corn (maize), wheat or potatoes. Starch content needs to exceed 60% before significant material breakdown occurs. As the starch content is increased, the polymer composites become more biodegradable and leave less recalcitrant residues. Often, starch-based polymers are blended with high-performance polymers (e.g. aliphatic polyesters and polyvinyl alcohols) to achieve the necessary performance properties for different applications.…

    Starch Lab

    Introduction: In this lab we learned the concept and procedure of synthesizing starch. We also learned the effects of pH and temperature on the reaction rates of amylase.. In the process of the synthesis lab we learned phosphorylation using a potato, which was what we synthesized. The phosphorylation took place after the addition of primer. There are two different types of starches used are amylose and amylopectin. To test for the presence of starch, the Starch Test is used. This is a simple test in which iodine is added to a given solution. If a polysaccharide such as starch is present then the iodine ion will lodge itself in the polysaccharide chain and give it a black-blue color. If iodine added to a solution turns black-blue than starch is present. If the solution remains the color of iodine, reddish-orange, there is no starch present, a negative test. In our experiment we scale the color we see in comparison to the neutrals to test for the amount of starch.…
