A Better Way to Cook Starch, Increase Throughput and Control Costs

Customer was experiencing poor manufacturing efficiency with an unsafe borax and caustic feed
system, along with cleanliness issues in the starch kitchen. There was also an unacceptable amount of waste generated in the process leading to reduced profitability.

Customer realized improved safety benefits with theelimination of borax handling and the need for a caustic tank.
