Starch Cookers and Starch Processing Systems

ProFlow's starch cookers and starch processing systems - serving the paper industry for over 15 years.

We custom-design every starch processing system to maximize product efficiency and reduce downtime.

Starch is one of the most important raw materials in the pulp and paper process. Inefficient, poorly designed starch handling systems can reduce availability, require extensive cleaning and maintenance, and lead to product loss.

ProFlow works with customer partners to develop custom engineering solutions that best meet the specific requirements of each starch-cooking project. Our skilled team of industry specialists, engineers, welders, and assemblers has hands-on experience in all aspects of the pulp and paper industry and has successfully designed and built hundreds of starch systems.

ProFlow's Starch Processing Systems

Starch Cooking Systems

Combining a field-proven design, featuring state-of-the-art PLC controls, with high-efficiency Q-Jet DSI Mixing Jet Cookers, ProFlow’s starch cooking systems deliver exceptional starch cooking performance. We also offer the automatic Wet End Cooker, the only system in the industry that allows direct setting of starch concentrations.

ProFlow offers various models for a wide range of size press and coatings applications. Our systems include:

Continuous enzymatic conversion starch cooker.

Continuous Enzymatic Conversion Systems

ProFlow’s Continuous Enzymatic Conversion systems allow mills to use the more cost-effective unprocessed starch by converting raw starch directly in the process. These systems provide cost savings on raw materials, reducing their loss during batching. In most installations, a continuous enzyme conversion system will pay for itself in the first year.

Bulk Material Handling Systems

From bulk silos to systems for handling super sacks to individual bags, ProFlow can provide a system that accommodates any material handling need. We engineer and build efficient, labor-savings bulk handling systems, designed to take advantage of economies of purchasing starch in bulk. Overall, we offer a broad range of bulk handling solutions, including:

  • Silos
  • Conveyers
  • Super-Sack Feed Systems
  • Manual Feed Hoppers

Slurry Systems

ProFlow’s customized slurry systems help to reduce bacteria formation that would lead to equipment corrosion and maintenance issues. A ProFlow slurry system ensures high-quality coatings, while operating at maximum availability and throughput. Our systems include:

  • Slurry Makedown Systems
  • Slurry Metering Systems

Feed Systems

ProFlow designs and fabricates custom skid systems, engineered to optimize the starch handling process. ProFlow’s systems allow you to dilute, meter, and split feeds to multiple points in the process. To meet customer requirements, we offer a number of control options that readily integrate into cooking systems. Our feed system options include:

  • Post-Dilution Skids
  • Metering Skids
  • Splitter Skids
  • Self-Filter Skids
