Multicyclone unit HC130/230/330/400

Nivoba Multicyclones are used for concentrating and washing native and modified starch

Process description

A multicyclone unit comprises a number of hydrocyclone stages. Crude starch enters the unit through the first cyclone stage. Simultaneously fresh water is added through the last cyclone stage. While the starch passes all stages up to the last stage, the water goes in the opposite direction (counter-current). The intensive contact ensures the starch is finally discharged fully cleaned.


A multicyclone unit consists of a frame, a number of hydrocyclone stages fitted with one or more cyclone blocks, feed pumps, instrumentation, piping and cabling. The cyclone blocks are mounted on stainless steel frames with hinged covers. Depending on the required capacity Nivoba offers 4 different cyclone sizes.
