Direct Steam Injection Heating for Starch Cooking Processes


Starch is a diverse industry that encompasses multiple products including sweeteners, paper products, foods such as soups, mayonnaise, and beverages. Each of these producers have their own unique concerns. 

Achieving the maximum conversion of starch to sugars is the key goal in both the ethanol and sweetener industries. Once the sugars are created, the goals in these industries change but the process in both to create those sugars is very similar. The need to be able to produce and maintain a very accurate uniform temperature in the mash flow and being able to create an adjustable shear are the two key features provided by the Hydroheater/Jetcooker. Being able to adjust the ΔP is achieved by Hydro-Thermal’s adjustable combing tube. This feature provides the ability to create the optimal amount of shear to optimize yield, produce a very high level of product quality in the case of sweetener plants, reduce enzyme use, and reduce overall energy use. Hydro-Thermal’s patented heating solution addresses these issues and comes with a team of experts ready to help you achieve your processing goals.

Hydro-Thermal’s patented heating system works by mixing steam and process liquids completely while delivering consistent temperature and instantaneous heating. For more information on our advanced direct steam injection technology, click here.
