Starch Processing

Sanitary Multi Hydro Cyclones

When purity cannot be compromised it is important to have a means of protecting the process and the starch. The SiccaDania sanitary multi hydro cyclone provides customers with 100% hygienic cyclone to protect the starch.

SiccaDania offers a broad range of hydro cyclones to match every situation and customer demand. The sanitary cyclone (HCH) unit is the most hygienic hydro cyclone on the market. The washing water is sensitive to microbiological growth which can cause the failure of the washing equipment, increase down time and a contaminated product. Using the hygienic hydro cyclone unit minimises the risk of this harmful microbiological growth. In case hygiene is of less importance, the HCC cyclones are advised. 

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 fresh water used is small. After this multi-stage process, almost all contaminants are washed out.
