FAQs: Starch Paste Kettle
Describe the working process of starch paste kettle work.
A starch paste kettle is a specialized industrial vessel that is used for the processing of starch-based products. The machine follows various steps to complete the process:
- Ingredients Selection and Mixing: The very first step is to select raw materials obtained from sources like corn, wheat, or potatoes. It is then mixed with water to form a slurry to ensure particles are well dispersed in the liquid.
- Loading of processing chamber: The dispersed slurry is then transferred to the kettle where processing takes place.
- Heating and Cooking: The slurry is then heated using the indirect heating method to ensure efficient heating without the risk of scorching or burning the raw material.
- Gelatinization: Due to heating, the granules start to break down releasing amylose and amylopectin molecules.
- Cooling and Packaging: When the required consistency is reached the heat supply to the kettle is stopped and the cooling process starts to stabilize the structure of the paste. After cooling the resultant mixture is then transferred to the packaging line to fill it into the sealed packages.
What are the main components of a starch paste kettle?
- There are several components used within the starch paste kettle, the main components are:
- Kettle: It is the main processing container in which starch processing took place. It has a large capacity to produce a paste with desired batch size.
- Heating System: The energy-efficient heating mechanism installed within this machine delivers the required heat for efficient cooking of the starch paste.
- Agitator: The processing chamber is fixed with an agitator to ensure efficient mixing and uniform heating distribution.
- Water supply system: It is designed to deliver water into the kettle during starch preparation.
- Discharge Outlet: When the mixture is prepared it is then extracted out of the kettle with the help of a discharge mechanism in calculated amounts.
What are the applications of starch paste kettles?
Given below are some of the common applications of starch paste kettles:
- Food processing: production of various food products that can be used for thickening and stabilizing gravies, soups, sauces, dressings, and confectioneries.
- Paper Industry: Starch paste kettles are used to prepare starch that can be used as a binder and coating agent in paper production.
- Textile Industry: Starch paste can be used to enhance the strength and stiffness of textile materials.
- Adhesive Industry: Preparation of binding agents for packaging, bookbinding, and paper product manufacturing.
- Pharmaceutical Industry: The starch produced with the help of a starch kettle can be used as an excipient in pharmaceutical formulations.
Can the temperature be controlled in a starch paste kettle?
Typically, the Starch paste kettle comes with indirect electrically powered heating which functions with the help of an automated simple-to-use electrical control panel. The advanced sensor-based electrical system of this unit makes it easier to set the heating levels within the kettle to efficiently process the starch without the risk of scorching.
Are starch paste kettles suitable for large-scale industrial production?
Starch paste kettles usually come in various sizes as per their production capabilities and power ratings. These units are provided with a large-sized starch heating chamber which makes them capable to process starch in different-sized batches. The suitability of this heavy-duty machine for large-scale industries depends on several factors such as process efficiency, quality & consistency, control options, and many more.
