Achieving Quality, Safety, & Efficiency in Modern Flour Mills
Flour mill operators carry the important responsibility of ensuring the safety and quality of the flour they produce. While creating high quality goods always begins with selecting the right raw materials, the milling process heavily influences the quality and safety of flour products. It’s critical for flour mills to adopt processes to ensure the highest standards of hygiene and product purity. Fortunately, technological advances have enabled flour mills to reach new heights in food quality and safety while optimizing plant efficiency.
In a study recently published in the food science journal Foods Sarkar, et al. highlights several ways technological advances have helped enhance plant hygiene and food quality as well as the efficiency and sustainability of the wheat milling industry. The researchers discuss how innovations to sorters, roller mills, plansifters, purifiers, and more have enabled significant improvements in these areas. In this article, we’ll look at some of these innovations and how they can support initiatives to increase quality and efficiency in flour mills.
Leonardo Roller Mill
The Omas Leonardo roller mill is a remarkable machine designed with accessibility and ease of cleaning in mind. Its energy-saving design can significantly reduce energy consumption, leading to increased efficiency and reduced costs. The Galileo plansifter is another groundbreaking innovation by Omas that prioritizes high efficiency and contamination avoidance during the sifting process. Its sleek anodized aluminum frames create a smooth surface that won't attract contaminants, and the machine's panel walls are insulated to prevent condensation, reducing the risk of contamination. The Michelangelo purifier is yet another Omas machine designed to achieve the highest purity standards without compromising productivity.
Engineered to operate with high efficiency, the Omas Galileo Plansifter is designed so flours contact only food-safe materials, and the Galileo’s panel walls are insulated to reduce the risk of condensation, another potential source of contamination. Features like these allow mill operators to meet the highest standards of product purity and efficiency.
The Omas Michelangelo Purifier enables flour mills to achieve the highest purity standards without compromising productivity. Protective barriers shield products from contaminants, and patented frames with clean, weld-free corners optimize both hygiene and sieving surfaces. The Michelangelo’sinnovative design is easy to clean and can operate at high capacity with minimal vibration.
