Designing of Paste Kettle:
Paste Kettle uses for the preparation of starch-based paste. A hemispherical shape container ensures that the heating of the starch paste is uniform and covers more surface area. The tilting type arrangement ensures ease in unloading the paste in another container or vessel. The starch is put in the kettle and water is added to it till desired thickness of paste is achieved. The kettle is jacketed and is heated till the starch melts and a thick paste is achieved. This paste can be agitated either manually or with the help of an anchor type agitator which will constantly agitate the paste so that there will be no lumps formation. Temperature can be set to the desired degree by adjusting the thermostat provided and the temperature can be seen in the dial thermometer provided. The jacket can be designed for different working temperature requirements.
