Rotary drum sieve is also called rotary washing machine in the potato starch production plant. As I said above, fresh potatoes is still not fully cleaned and washed by water. So, the third and the final equipment rotary drum sieve will fully wash the fresh potatoes with clean water. The working principle of this cleaning equipment is that fresh potatoes flow in the opposite direction against water in the cleaning tank, which makes washing completely with good efficiency. Such washing principle is also called countercurrent washing.

Though these three cleaning equipment in potato starch production plant, fresh potatoes will be completely cleaned.
