In the course of time, everything has been modernized. In the milling sector, sophisticated machines and processing methods have also come into production of flour from wheat. There are different companies in the world market. They can make the machine as per the demand of the buyer. Even then there are some common methods of producing flour from wheat in the industry. This topic will be highlighted in this article.
The wheat milling production line is mainly composed of wheat mill, fan, air closer, shackle lifting and discharging device, which can realize full air transportation and automatic circulation processing and milling. It is often used in 40-120 mesh milling of wheat, corn, beans, sorghum and buckwheat. Among them, the wheat core separation mill grinds wheat into flour by grinding roller, and the bran and qualified flour are screened by circular roller, which is widely used in grain processing points.
Wheat Milling Process Flow
There are several steps involved in wheat processing flow. These include Pre-cleaning, Cleaning, Milling, Processing, Packaging.
Pre-cleaning is key for an efficient and safe milling process. After harvest, wheat may be mixed with straw, rope, stone, brick, dirt and other large impurities, which will damage the processing equipment or block the piping system. If you remove these before storage, you can extend the service life of your machinery and provide hygienic storage conditions for your grain. Therefore, the preliminary cleaning process is required before wheat is stored.
To ensure the quality of flour and protecting the processing equipment, before entering into the milling process from temporary storage, the pre-cleaned wheat needs further cleaning. This process utilizes a variety of means, such as screening, aspiration separation, magnetic separation, stone removal, wheat scouring, optical sorting and so on.
The wheat milling production line is mainly composed of wheat mill, fan, air closer, shackle lifting and discharging device, which can realize full air transportation and automatic circulation processing and milling.
The series Wheat Flour Milling Machine contains square plansifter, new pneumatic roller mill and other flour milling equipment. With the novel design, advanced equipment and scientific production flow, this flour milling plant is commonly used to manufacture tailored flour and graded flour. In addition, co-production is also allowed, and the available model includes 100TPD, 120TPD, 140TPD, 160TPD, 200TPD, 220TPD, 250TPD and 300TPD etc.
Processing & Further processing
The process of Wheat Flour milling (from wheat to milled into wheat flour) usually consist of the following:
- wheat storage (silos, or warehouse)
- cleaning system (sifter, destoner, separator, magnet, scourer, etc)
- dampening (dampener, conditioning silos, etc)
- milling system (roller mill, plansifter, purifier, impact detacher, etc.)
- Flour pressure and blending system (if need)
- After the grain is processed into flour, it needs post-treatment including collecting, blending, bulk storage, weighing, insecticide, adding micro ingredients and the nutrient enrichment of flour (amino acid, vitamin, mineral, etc.). The post-treatment can stabilize the flour quality and increase varieties.
- flour packing and stacking
The type of packaging depends on the type and quantity of wheat, flour demand and supply.
According to the flour milling industry and the different requirements for flour quality of flour consumers, different companies have developed several sets of flour processing solutions and flour processing plant construction options, which can fully meet the different needs of customers.
