The Rosewood Research pilot mill contains equipment that assists researchers to develop processes that enhance the quality of grains and optimise product yield.
The mill contains the necessary equipment to remove the outer hull or skin from many different grains for further processing into granular products or flour. The Pilot Mill’s commercial scale abrasive debranner can be utilised for polishing rice, dehulling pulses, rice, barley, oats, spelt and debranning wheat, barley or maize.
The Pilot Mill also has a vario roller mill that can be used for various research purposes. This machine has the ability to infinitely change the speed of each roll, and hence the differential in speed between the rolls. With a number of fluting rolls available the vario roller mill is a useful tool for experimental, research and training purposes. With a large range of sieving sizes available, it is possible to achieve most particle sizes, suitable for any sieving applications.
