From starch to dextrin

  1. Transport and storage of starch – Starch is transported using pneumatic transport. The storage silo provides operational supply for one day.
  2. Acidification – Starch is moistened in an acidification tank with acid solution. The amount and type depends on the type of dextrin produced. The system works discontinuously.
  3. Resting – Acidified starch is left in the silo to rest for 8-12 hours.
  4. Dextrinization – First the starch is dried in one of the rotating drums and then roasted in two other drums – the influence of heat and acid causes dextrinization. This process is continuous.
  5. Cooling – Dextrinization is finished by cooling. Aspiration – residual starch is separated from the air and dextrin is returned back to the dextrinization tower.
  6. Homogenisation – Continually produced dextrin is homogenised to achieve equalisation parameters.
  7. Sieving – Foreign particles are removed by sieving.
  8. Packing – Dextrin is packed into paper valve bags or into bulk bags and according to laboratory results labelled with the appropriate name and quality mark.
