Starch Peeler Centrifuge

Wave

Starch Peeler Centrifuge

G---Amido-HXLS-2000-_MG_1134

The Starch Peeler Centrifuge dewaters raw (native) or modified starch prior to drying.

It reduces drying time by achieving the lowest residual moisture, and is ideal for raw and modified starches such as corn, wheat, potato, rice, tapioca, etc. It reduces the water content more than any other type of centrifuge.

Production Cycle and Design Advantages

Typical Applications

Raw and modified starches such as:

  • Corn
  • Wheat
  • Potato
  • Rice
  • Tapioca

Highlights

  • Rotary Siphon creates a vacuum, which accelerates the filtration rate
  • Front skimming pipe allows for the efficient removal of proteins or fine fibers
  • Lower residual moisture
  • Heel regeneration with backwash
  • Cake peeling at full rotational speed
  • Laser cake detector
  • The cycle can be run at maximum speed, obtaining a high hourly production
  • Horizontal basket ensures uniform loading of cake
  • Visual access to the process area from the front door and inspection ports
  • No contact between the operator and product during operation
  • Installation on concrete or carbon steel inertia base with anti-vibration dampers
  • FDA-approved oil lubrication for bearings on all models
  • Sizes range from 1250mm (49.2 in.) diameter to 2000mm (78.7 in.) diameter – See chart below

Automatic Discharge

  • Automatic discharge at maximum speed
  • Knife scraper blade fixed without use of bolts
  • Steep solids discharge chute or screw conveyor
  • Heel removal assist with optional reverse blow back

Control Options

  • Fully automatic operation
  • Complete PLC controls with touch-screen interface
  • Switch between automatic, semi-automatic, and manual operation
  • Variable frequency drive (VRD) speed control

Cleaning

  • Highly effective C.I.P. system (Clean-in-Place) uses a Washing Machine Effect cycle and spray balls
  • Automatic sanification of the filter cloth
  • Automatic C.I.P of the knife to prevent product blockage

Machine Characteristics

  • Easily replaceable endless filter cloth, thermo-welded, in polypropylene or PTFE of various weaves and sizes
  • Filter medium is easily changed and secured in the basket
  • Automatic clamping ring for quick front door opening
  • Design ensures low vibrations and noise level
  • Construction materials
