We can produce starch from tapioca by the following production process:cleaning, crushing, screening, concentrating, dehydrating and drying. Considering that automated tapioca starch production methods are more efficient and economical than traditional manual method, here I will mainly introduce how to produce starch from tapioca in automated way based on the needs of most people.

①Tapioca cleaning

First, adopt dry sieve to remove the larger impurities on tapioca, such as small rocks and weeds; then adopt paddle washing machine to wash the tapioca completely.

②Tapioca crushing

Adopt cutting machine to crush the cleaned tapioca into chunks and then adopt rasper to crush the chunks into starch pulp. Double crushing way will make a greater crushing degree of tapioca, which is conducive to improving the dissociation rate of bonded starch and the extraction rate of starch.

④Tapioca starch concentrating

Adopt hydrocyclone station to remove the protein and cell fluid from the starch emulsion so that tapioca starch can be concentrated, which is an extremely important step to improve the quality of final starch.

⑤Tapioca starch dehydrating

Adopt peeler centrifuge to dehydrate the starch milk into the wet starch powder with about 40% moisture.

⑥Tapioca starch drying

Adopt the flash dryer to dry the wet tapioca starch into finished tapioca starch with uniform moisture instantly.
