Hovex Centrifugal Sieves

Lowest downtime in the industry

The Hovex centrifugal extraction sieves are designed to generate the maximum possible starch yield.

The starch is extracted by centrifugal sieving. The pulp is placed on a rotating sieve which is designed in such a way that starch can pass but fibers cannot. During the sieving process, water is added to wash the maximum amount of starch out of the pulp.

Benefits of Hovex Centrifugal sieves
