Automated Oxidized Starch Production System

The automated oxidized starch production system adds an oxidizing agent to low-cost starch, and through thermo-chemical denaturation can perform automated continuous production of starch paste liquid equivalent to standard oxidized starch.

Automated Oxidized Starch Production System

■Advantages

  • The system adds minute amounts of ammonium peroxodisulfate (APS) as an additive and mixes into a homogeneous starch slurry using a static mixer to perform precise denaturation preparation.
  • The Noritake cooker provides excellent temperature uniformity even when heating starches like tapioca starch, which undergo sharp changes in viscosity.
  • Caustic soda is uniformly supplied and mixed as a neutralizing agent with dilution water for concentration control, to produce starch paste liquid at the desired concentration, temperature, and pH.
  • It can be equipped with an assortment of utility tanks, including liquid chemical tanks and water heating units for dilution.
