Are you looking for food milling technology? Do you want reduce the average particle size of your food product to a smaller average particle size? Do you want to make scrapped batches ready for rework? Or are you grinding your ingredients to achieve the ultimate texture and tasting experience?
Humans have been particularly creative in finding new ways to reduce the particle size of food products. Solutions range from crushers, shredders and granulators, to hammer, ball and pin mills, air classifier or jet mills, colloid and corundum mills, just to name a few… This may be because the complexity of food milling applications varies significantly. You will need different equipment depending on the feed properties such as hardness at various size ranges and, perhaps most importantly, the desired characteristics of your food product.
Maintenance of food mills. When you are milling food, strict hygiene and easy cleaning of the equipment is top of mind. Also safety is a concern both from a general industrial operation perspective and the particular explosion risks that come from working with some foods. You will also need to take into account your expectation in terms of throughput and maintenance.
Milling and micronization solutions.
We have experience with a broad range of food milling equipment. We can offer crushers and hammer mills for the pre-crushing of press cakes. Impact mills will allow you to adjust the fineness levels, for example when you are fine grinding different spices. Air classifying mills or jet mills can be suitable for ultra-fine grinding and when you want to mill your foods to sub-micron levels we can help you with ball mill solutions. And when you are trying to reduce the particle size of a solid in suspension in a liquid, you may benefit from colloid or corundum milling solutions.
Milling sugar based recipes
Amongst others, we can help you mill sugar and sugar based recipes, cocoa liquor, cocoa nibs. Ball or roller mill solutions may improve how you refine your chocolate. We can also offer grinding solutions for coffee beans, varying from traditional mortar grinding to stone, hammer or roller mills. We have pre-milling solutions for nuts, spices, soya beans, mustard, chili, meat pastes, juices and can help you mill vegetables and fruits. Air classifier or fine impact mills may be best to reduce the particle size of your cereal products. Examples include wheat; corn starch proteins; protein derivatives (wheat, potato or soy).
There are solutions for bran rework of cereal production scrap like corn chips or corn grits. Our partners can help you produce fruit powders and biological fibers, like wheat, apple, orange and oat. Other examples include fish meal and thickening agents such as alginate, carrageenan, guar flour.
