Tapioca flour production equipment

Description of tapioca:

The tapioca root is long and tapered, with a firm, homogeneous flesh encased in a detachable rind, about 1 mm thick, rough and brown on the outside. Commercial varieties can be 5 to 10 cm (2.0 to 3.9 in) in diameter at the top, and around 15 to 30 cm (5.9 to 11.8 in) long. A woody vascular bundle runs along the root's axis. The flesh can be chalk-white or yellowish. Tapioca roots are very rich in starch and contain significant amounts of calcium (50 mg/100g), phosphorus (40 mg/100g) and vitamin C (25 mg/100g). However, they are poor in protein and other nutrients.

Description of tapioca flour production:

About the tapioca process, we can process if to be tapioca flour, tapioca starch, garri etc. here we mainly introduce thetapioca flour production for you:

1.Sorting and Cleaning: The tubers are sorted to select the wholesome roots for production. and then cleaning.

2.Peeling: The weighed tapioca roots are peeled manually to reduce high peeling loss associated with mechanical peelers due to irregular shape of tapioca root.

3.Washing: Peeled root is washed with sufficient quantity of potable water to remove sand, dirt and other contaminants.

4.Grating: The root is milled to cassava mash.

5.Dewatering: The moisture content of the mash is reduced mechanically to about 50% to prepare for drying operation.

6.Granulation: The resultant cake from dewatering process is disintegrated into fine granules using hammer mill.

7.Drying: Granulation process is followed by drying operation to produce cassava flour of desired quality.

8.Milling (if require the high quality tapioca flour): The flour obtained is milled to desired particle size.

9.Sieving and Packaging: The flour is sieved to separate the fiber and packaged appropriately.
