EasyStarch starch separator

Correct handling of sediments such as sand and sludge.

Strong-acting against starch: EasyStarch. Starch occurs when processing potatoes, grain, rice and pulses, among other things – i.e. in kitchen operations in restaurants or in the food processing industry. The EasyStarch starch separator s used here to prevent deposits, encrustations and blockages in the wastewater pipes. 

The  EasyStarch is available for exposed installation and for underground installation. Get in touch with us  –  we will be happy to advise you and develop an individual solution for your specific requirements.

What happens inside a starch separator?

The function of starch separators is based on the principle of gravity: Due to the difference in density of water, grease and dirt particles (sludge), the different materials in the separator tank separate automatically.

Discharging the wastewater

The wastewater is routed into the starch separator, where the flow is largely stilled due to the large volume of the tank.

Formation of the foam layer

In the prechamber, part of the starch rises to the surface of the water as foam. There it is sprayed with clean water and is then washed away.

As it is heavier than water, the starch falls to the bottom of the stilled tank and settles there.
