2.Cassava grating and fermentation and dewatering.

Cassava grating process is normally finished by machine. Cassava grater machine designed by Henan Jinrui can separate starch slurry from cassava mash, which is very popular in African countries. After cassava is crushed, we can get cassava mash. And then put cassava mash into bags for 2-3 days’ fermentation. Fermentation time can be adjusted according to different variety of garri you are producing. After that, hydraulic press machine is used to dehydrate fermented cassava. After dehydration, moisture content of cassava mash is around 38%.

After dehydration, you can use hand or grater machine to break cassava cakes and get wet powder. Then automatic garri fryer is used to fry wet cassava into mature garri. Garri fryer designed by Henan Jinrui is fully made of stainless steel. Fuel of the fryer can be electricity, diesel or gas. Client can choose the most economic type according to their market situation.
