During the washing and slicing of potatoes starch is released into the water, and over time the concentration of starch increases, resulting in the generation of foam which when left uncontrolled can adversely affect production efficiency. AEROPEC™ defoamers are added to the potato water circuit at the washing and slicing stage of the manufacturing process, reducing foam build-up, and so optimizing production efficiency and product quality.
Foam is generated during potato processing because foam active substances (starch and protein) are extracted by water during transport, washing, peeling and cutting. The type and extent of foam produced varies accordingly with the type of potato quality and processing conditions such as turbulence, temperature, pH, storage conditions, etc’. Foam is a major nuisance during potato processing, unregulated foam levels can result in lower production rates, unsafe working environment, and even production shut down.
