Storing and Conveying
The silo plant for the separate storage of conventional and gluten-free products consists of 24 silos with a volume of 25 to 50 cubic meters. Every silo is equipped with a full/empty indicator, as well as a pressure and vacuum indicator with a safety valve and a connection to the central aspiration system.
Vibro bin dischargers and aeration systems ensure the trouble free silo discharge of the product. A pneumatic system fills the silos which transports the various products from the mill to the respective silo.
Optionally, products exiting the mill can be redirected over a control line (one for corn, the other one for wheat, rye and spelt). There, the material passes through a control sieve and an all-metal separator before entering the silo via the pneumatic system. Furthermore, an impact machine destroys the eggs of parasites the flour might contain. This process ensures high product safety.
Bagging / Big bag filling / Small packaging line
The product is filled into 25kg bags or Big bags.
The small packaging line for the filling of household sizes varying from 1-10kg is supplied directly by one of 4 silos. From there, the products reach a collection hopper with outlet flaps, which doses the flour over a rotary valve onto the packaging line.
