Cassava is the third-largest source of food carbohydrates in the tropics, after rice and maize. Cassava is a major staple food in the developing world, providing a basic diet for over half a billion people. It is drought-tolerant and barren-resistant, and is widely planted in more than 100 countries or regions including Africa, America and Asia. Cassava can be made into various products, such as cassava chips, cassava starch, cassava flour, and Garri. Because cassava surface silt will affect the quality of cassava products, the cassava root needs to be washed and peeled before processing. How to wash and peel cassava root? It's usually done manually. But now i will introduce the modern way to wash and peel cassava root.
Jinrui Company has two methods for cassava washing and peeling. One uses the dry sieve and paddle washing machine to process cassava, and the other only requires a cassava washing and peeling machine.
How to wash and peel cassava root by machine?
1. Dry sieve and paddle washing machine
Dry sieve is a device that does not require water to screen debris. It uses friction between cassava root raw materials and collision between cassava raw materials and dry sieve to screen out debris. When the cassava root is transported to the dry sieve, the dry sieve will continuously push the cassava root raw material to rotate and transport forward. Then the cassava root raw material is rolled, rotated and rubbed to remove dirt, weeds, small stones and other debris. It is discharged through the gap between the dry sieve.
The cassava washed by the dry sieve will be transported to the paddle washing machine for further washing treatment. The paddle washing machine adopts the principle of countercurrent washing. The blades on the main shaft of the paddle washing machine rotate continuously, while the water and the cassava root raw material move in opposite directions. In this process, the friction between the paddle and the material can remove the silt attached to the surface of the cassava root, and the material is also transported from the inlet to the outlet for discharge, and can enter the next section.
It is worth mentioning that the impact and friction between the cassava, the cassava and the equipment, and the impact of water all can achieve the effect of washing and peeling.

2. Cassava washing and peeling machine
The cassava washing and peeling machine is mainly composed of a frame, a motor, a reducer, a brush roller, and a transmission system. When the cassava washing and peeling machine is working, the motor drives the brush roller to start to rotate. The cassava raw material will rub and collide with the brush roller and the friction between the cassava raw materials can generate a lot of friction. The friction force achieves the effect of cassava washing and peeling. In addition, the cassava washing and peeling machine adopts a spray system design, which uses less water for cleaning.
