"Savings of starch with GAW starch preparation."

The proven system from GAW scores with its small and compact design. The continuous mode of operation guarantees stable operating conditions compared to batch production by avoiding permanent sequences of starting and emptying. A continuous system is also characterized by the continuous steam / hot water demand without peaks, offering another benefit.

The classic enzymatic process has been tested and proven in hundreds of references and scores with rock-solid technology and as the most economical solution. This is particularly important in times of rising raw material prices.

Due to the special process design a customized starch size with the required viscosity and molar mass distribution can be created with minimum waste water and starch losses. Ongoing R&D will provide an option to upgrade to a new, promising cavitation process in the near future. A team of technology experts cares for worldwide design and realization of greenfield and advanced retrofit projects.

Advantages of the GAW Starch Preparation

  • Fast ROI
  • No risk as it is a proven and reliable technology.
  • The most sustainable concept among classic systems:
    • Wastewater-free operation through the circuit line
    • Many adjustable parameters and thus possibilities to influence starch quality
    • Constant starch quality even under fluctuating throughputs
    • Constant solids content and constant viscosity
    • Possibility for online measurement of viscosity
    • Lagging operation mode: The system adapts fully automatically to the starch consumption without requiring a stop & go operation
    • Optional Heat Recovery System to save 50% of steam in the cooking step
    • Tailor-made design and solutions
  • Production safety always comes first at GAW!
  • GAW scores with expertise and transparency and supports the customer with words and deeds/actions. A mobile rental unit is available for industrial scale trial runs.
  • Retrofitting the classic system with the new, promising cavitation process from GAW is possible at any time. This process is currently in the final phase of an extensive series of tests on an industrial scale. The process is far more promising and resource saving than other currently investigated approaches, and promises further savings in the future.
