The processing method of cassava flour
The processing method of cassava flour consists of three sections: cleaning section, crushing section and drying section.

2. Crushing section
The crushing section is to realize the transformation of cassava mash from cleaned cassava tubers in the processing of cassava flour. Since cassava roots are big and long, the crushing section mainly includes two steps: using a cassava cutting machine to cut full pieces of cassava into small pieces, and then using a hammer crusher or a cassava rasper to crush them into fine cassava mash. After crushing, de-sander machine will be installed to eliminate small sand debris.
In the processing method of cassava flour, the drying section plays a role in removing extra water and dry qualified cassava flour. Fine cassava mash obtained from the crushing section will be pumped into a filter press machine for dehydration, from which you can get wet cassava powder with moisture content around 40%. And then, the wet cassava powder will be sent into a flash dryer for final drying. Through this drying step, the moisture of final cassava flour is around 12%. What’s more, to ensure fineness of cassava flour, a fine milling machine can be used after drying to grind the coarse particles and a sieving machine can be installed to separate big particles.
