Manually operated potato starch scales with starch content display.
A sample of properly washed potatoes is weighed when dry, and then again when under water. The buoyancy, and thus the underwater weight, of the potatoes varies in line with their starch content (dry content). The higher the starch content, the higher the underwater weight of the potatoes. With this method, it is no longer necessary to weight exactly
5 kg of potatoes and to then compare the measured weight with reference values in a table. By determining the dry weight and the underwater weight, the starch scale automatically calculate the specific density. Based on standardised formulas, the actual starch content of the potatoes is determined. Simply place between 4 and 7 kg of potatoes (or as many potatoes as fit into the basket) on the scale after that you can use the chain to lower the basket. The rest is done by the BOSCHE KSM.
With our optional printer, you can print tickets showing the starch content with date and time.
Advantages of potato starch scales
