Pre-cleaning is key for an efficient and safe milling process. Grain contains impurities and foreign materials. If you remove these before storage, you can extend the service life of your machinery and provide hygienic storage conditions for your grain.
Hulling removes the indigestible husk from the kernel. The groats are then separated so that only top-quality groats enter the kiln.
Hydrothermal treatment of the oats in a kiln increases shelf life, reduces total germ count and produces the typical nutty taste.
Complete oat kernels or cut groats are then steamed ready for flaking. In the flaking mill, starch gelatinization increases the nutritional properties of the oats. Flaking also helps to produce a good-looking end product.
The finished products are either bagged or loaded in bulk. It is important to handle the flakes gently. Precise dosing and weighing are also key. We offer a wide range of manual and fully automated loading and bagging systems.
