In the realm of starch production, especially in industries dealing with tapioca, the utilization of advanced vibrating screens and sieves screens has become indispensable for processes such as screening, classifying, sorting, washing, dewatering, and sieving.
The tapioca starch production journey begins with the cleaning and removal of fresh cassava, followed by crushing in a specialized crusher. The pulverized pulp undergoes further dehydration and is then conveyed to drying equipment. The dried materials are subjected to screening by the vibrating sieve, which plays a crucial role in separating the starch milk from the fiber. This process ensures the removal of fine residue, allowing for the recovery of starch from the fiber through detergent treatment, ultimately achieving the separation and purification of starch.
The widespread use of starch across various industries, including food, textile, paper, pharmaceutical, chemical, and metallurgical sectors, contributes to the continuous growth in demand. Different raw materials, such as potatoes, corn, wheat, and tapioca, lead to diverse production processes.
Screens employed in the rinsing, filtration, separation, and dewatering of starch, and pulp, as well as the concentration of starch in centrifuges, are integral to these processes.
The cassava starch vibrating screen stands out as a specialized screening equipment with characteristics such as high efficiency, precision, and stability. Its primary function is to screen and classify impurities in cassava starch, enhancing its quality to meet the stringent requirements of process production.
Success stories abound in various industrial screening processes, from flour production to sieving fine metal powders, screening instant coffee granules, to the filtration processes in tapioca factories.
Diverse types of starch screens are available, including wedge wire screen panels, sieve bend screens (DSM screens), and wedge wire rotary drum screens. Customized wedge wire screens are offered to suit different models of starch vibrating screens, ensuring optimal performance in various applications.
In the broader context of industrial processes, vibratory sieves find extensive use across processing industries as efficient tools for protecting ingredients and end-products from contamination and lumps. Typically composed of a single deck containing a mesh, industrial vibratory screeners screen out oversize, agglomerates, and foreign bodies from liquids and powder. The motor attached to the screen uses an out-of-balance force to create vibrations, facilitating the passage of materials through the mesh.
It's important to note that while the terms "sieves" and "screens" can be used interchangeably, sieves and strainers are distinct. Sieves are generally employed for screening powders and liquids, while strainers, synonymous with filtration, are more commonly used in screening liquids or slurries.
For industries seeking tailored solutions to their specific needs, a team of experts is ready to assist. The innovative use of vibrating screens and sieves in tapioca starch production exemplifies the continuous drive for efficiency and quality in industrial processes, ultimately contributing to the growth and diversification of various industries.
