With the gradual improvement of the development model of the potato starch deep processing industry, starch processing plants and vermicelli plants, large and small, are spread all over the country. Among them, there are processing self-employed who mainly produce crude starch in a semi-automatic manner, as well as small and medium-sized starch processing plants that have begun to take shape, and large-scale processing enterprises that use fully automatic potato starch production lines.
The market positioning of these companies is different, and the potato starch production and processing equipment used is quite different in terms of scale, configuration, and performance, and the quality and quality of the starch produced are naturally different. This article mainly summarizes four different processing types of potato starch machines, which are convenient for people at different levels to use as a reference for equipment investment.
The simple potato starch machine is characterized by small output and low investment. The starch production method is mainly manual + machine assistance, and more wet powder is produced. The investment amount is 1-3 million (approximate range, adjustable).
The specific production steps of simple potato starch production and processing are: cleaning feeder-grinder-sedimentation tank process-hanging filter dehydration-natural drying. The entire potato starch production line has no purification filter equipment and dehydration drying equipment, so the investment amount is small, the risk is small, and the energy consumption is low. The disadvantage is that the production cycle is long, the processing efficiency is greatly affected by the environment, and the starch quality is poor.
The whole line mainly produces dry starch, and the degree of mechanization of practical starch processing equipment is higher than that of simple type. After washing, smashing, filtering, and precipitation, it is equipped with special starch dehydration and automatic drying equipment, eliminating the need for manual powdering and drying processes, and increasing production capacity. The land for the production workshop ranges from 110-200 square meters, and the investment amount is around 150,000-200,000. And the configuration of the practical potato starch machine can improve the processing capacity by replacing different potato crushing equipment.
This type of starch processing equipment is all mechanized production, no longer using the traditional sedimentation tank process, but a concentration and refining system (cyclone station), the whole process is automatically processed, and it only takes 20-30 minutes from the raw material to the dry starch out of the machine. The production line has a large number of equipment and occupies a large area. It is recommended that the main workshop area is about 250-300 square meters.
The production process is: a variety of cleaning equipment - potato powder machine - fine filter micro filter-desander and desilter-cyclone station-vacuum dehydrator-air dryer. The purity and quality of starch are better, but the disadvantage is that the equipment configuration is relatively low.
This type of starch processing equipment is basically the same as the economical equipment. They are all automated starch production. The difference is that the equipment is made of different materials, and the standard type is all made of stainless steel, and the cost is relatively high. Therefore, the standard starch processing equipment is higher than the economical starch processing equipment. The overall performance of the equipment is more stable, and the processing capacity is greatly improved.
