Solid-liquid separation is a quite frequently handled task by Virto-Cuccolini vibrating sieves across different industries.

In paper production, starch is used as binder and stiffener.
Starch-based glucose is employed in the production of medicines and sweets.
Wheat starch is a native starch made from hydrated flour; once the flour has been mixed with water, the gluten matrix forms and the starch can be washed out, as we can see in this video. Sieving here is performed by our C-Line VLM series:
