THE STAR FOR YOUR STARCHES

Get to the cutting edge in processing starch, starch derivates and proteins with the all-encompassing process solutions from Zeppelin Systems

For decades, starch has been the uncontested multitalent in the food processing industry: In its traditional form, it is not only perfect for binding sauces, in cake batter, fruit preparations or confectionery; the raw material from corn, wheat, potatoes and the like also forms the basis for numerous other derivatives such as starch-based sugar. Their special properties are used in infant nutrition, sports nutrition, baked goods, beverages and convenience products - for larger volumes, better consistency, longer shelf life and lower crystallization tendency. Many processing steps are necessary for the starch, their derivatives or proteins to develop their desired effect to the maximum. We at Zeppelin Systems ensure that each of the individual processing steps contributes to a perfect end result that will pay out for you. From storage & transport to dosing and preparation.

When it comes to starch and co.: maximum possible care down to the smallest detail

The road from raw material to a processable (starch) product is as long as it is intricate. And this is exactly where the incredible potential sits. Based on decades of experience, we have managed to optimize each individual step to the highest level. You can count on uncompromising product quality, and, what’s more, you can benefit from an extremely high overall plant efficiency. Keyword efficiency: Of course, we also offer customized automation and service solutions for starch processing.

Conveying catered to the product

When it comes to conveying sensitive bulk materials such as agglomerated starches or special proteins, "one size fits all" is definitely the wrong way to go. Instead, we offer you a variety of product-specific conveyor systems with the appropriate processes for each: This ranges from air conveying in positive and negative pressure operation and protective gas-superimposed pneumatics to secondary air conveying and plug conveying. We deliver whatever you require!

Efficient discharge of bulk materials

Bridging, poor flow - but easy handling thanks to innovative technology: We ensure that starches and their derivatives are discharged with maximum efficiency in your operations. Within a silo, for example, this is made possible by vibrating floors, hoppers, and special fluidized bed systems. The latter are particularly suitable for fluidizable bulk solids, air is passed through a semi-permeable fluidized bed to assure a smooth discharge.

Homogeneous mixing results

When it comes to homogenization, we at Zeppelin Systems rely on silos with sintered fluidized bed materials. And for good reason: This technology allows larger flakes to remain intact so that even large batches can be processed without any issues. Depending on the bulk density, our homogenizing silos can hold up to 60 tons of starch products. We use either polyethylene or - for applications in the temperature range above 70°C - stainless steel as fluidized bed lining.

Exact dosing and mixing

You need precision? Have we got news for you. This is right up our alley and you will directly benefit from our know-how. We not only provide you with all components needed for batch weighing, but also differential proportioning scales including control from a single source: whether fully automatic small or medium component systems or high performance weighing systems to dose flowing and poorly flowing dry materials.

Gentle hydrating & coating

Take advantage of our innovative DymoMixTMsystem. Originally developed for bread doughs, the hydrating system works as a pre-mixer between dosing and further processing. What is so special about this additional production step? Wetting the powdered components with water or oil immediately produces a homogeneous mixture.

Continuous further processing

If powdered raw materials such as gluten, potato or pea proteins are to be processed into meat substitute products, our Codos NT continuous kneader fits the bill. This powerful system mixes the various recipe ingredients with water and oil to form a perfectly homogeneous dough.
