Efficient cleaning and aspiration of rice is essential in any processing operation. Milling starts with the cleaning of paddy rice. This is a multi-step process in which foreign material such as straw, mud balls, threads, stones and metal particles are removed. This all helps maximize yields.
To produce rice, you first need to hull the paddy rice and remove the husks. This is achieved by the gentle action of rubber rollers applied to the paddy, after which the husk aspirator separates the husk from the rice by means of air aspiration.
To whiten rice, you first need to remove the bran from brown rice. You can then polish the rice by gently rubbing the rice kernels against each other. This removes the loose bran and leaves a smooth surface with silky luster – ready to look good on supermarket shelves.
We offer a wide range of plansifters and length graders which grade the rice into head rice, broken rice fractions and tips. They also remove bran lumps from the product. We also offer solutions to remove tips from bran to achieve a pure bran and tips fraction.
Optical sorting is essential in any processing operation, as it helps you meet food safety requirements and increase the purity of the product. Our sorting equipment uses a range of technologies including cameras, lighting and machine learning software.
