Starch Processing

Multi Hydro Cyclones

Multi hydro cyclones enable all customers to wash crude starch in order to reach the highest quality of starch, all while minimising the environmental footprint.

With a SiccaDania multi hydro cyclone, customers will be able to upgrade their starch quality with a state-of-the-art mechanical cyclone design.

The quality and value of the final starch product are largely determined by the washing of the crude starch. White high-quality starch can be obtained only if fibre fragments, lipids, proteins and dissolved substances are washed out efficiently. Process steps in this stage are a multi-stage washing process, fine fibre separation and starch recovery from the wash water.  

The starch is washed by concentrating diluted starch in suspension and diluting it again with clearer water. In this way, contaminants are removed.  

By using a counter-current flow principle, the amount of freshwater used is small. After this multi-stage process, almost all contaminants are washed out.

Among the applications of the hydro cyclone unit are:

  • Concentration
  • Peeler starch recovery
  • Refining and washing of suspension
