05.03.2018 Potato starch production line for Cargill/AKV Langholt AmbA

J-Tec Material Handling, Kapellen, Belgium, has won an order to supply Cargill-AKV I/S with a new potato starch production line in Langholt, Denmark. In order to offer the best quality in various applications, this new line will be able to process the potato starch in different ways.
J-Tec provided storage silos for both the intermediate and finished products, liquid tanks, separators, mixers, and hygienic control (sieve, magnet and sampling). In order to fit the new production line within the existing building, the storage silos were installed on top of it. J-Tec also delivered the complete cleaning-in-place (CIP) system for cleansing the installation. For the overall installation, extra attention is paid to optimal water purification and low waste of water. Assembly started end of 2017, and the production line is expected to be operational by the second quarter of 2018. 
Cargill and its Danish potato starch partner are investing €19 million in this new facility which will expand Cargill’s portfolio of SimPureTM functional native starches. AKV Langholt AmbA is a cooperative owned by 160 North Jutland potato growers. 
The new potato starch production line is being housed in an existing building and to save space the storage silos are positioned on top
