Starch separator

Starch separators

Starch is stored in the form of grains inside the cells of potatoes, cereals and other pulses. During the peeling/shelling process, the starch grains (cells) are torn open and the starch washed out by water. Potatoes have a starch content of around 20 - 30%. The wastewater produced then has a starch content of around 2 to 5% depending on processing technique. 

This leads to deposits and, after a short time to encrustation and blockages in the wastewater pipes.
