The production process - our technology to the service of your quality
Cleaning the grain is a process that takes up many and meticulous steps. The grain, when in fact comes to the mill through the vector, needs to be carefully separated from all the waste that the collection may have produced (stones, seeds and extraneous herbs, parasites, damaged grains, wood or plastic elements and other impurities). The cleanings generally divided into three phases: pre-cleaning, first cleaning, second cleaning. The two main cleaning phases are separated from the conditioning or wetting step, essential to prepare the grain in view of the entrance in the rolling mill.
A latest-generation software at our facilities manages the flow of the grain and its dampening to ensure that the grain, after having complied with the correct timing of rest (24 hours), comes into grinding in the best hydration conditions by stimulating the correct breakdown of starches.
Our line of Buhler mills processes up to 300ton/ 24h after the production enlargement in May 2015. The milling products are separated according to their size through the sieving process operated by Plansichter. The adjustment of the machines is carried out by operators and is carried out with the advice of a miller chief who supervises the proper conduct of all the phases of production and constantly interacts with the laboratory for the quality check of the incoming grains and of the produced flour.
Creating specific mixes for the needs of our clients is a task which has been assigned to the Buhler DFML Mixer, towards which the choice of Molino Braga is oriented. The machine is equipped with special latest generation flaps that ensure short mixing times (3 min approximately) and a very good level of uniformity in the mixing of the flours.
The flour produced before being stored in the fourteen flour storehouses for the rest of the product, goes through A Entoleter line of latest generation, important sterilizers machines to increase the product control level before storage. The product comes into the machine through the central entrance and is taken by a pins rotor where it is processed in an intensive impact with the purpose crush any solid impurities of the flour.
Molino Braga, following the most rigorous standards of food safety, favored only inox steel and polyurethane elements for the plant components, which limit the possibility of contamination and the formation of mold or other microorganisms in the canals where the product flows. The machines have been studied and produced as a single piece (products safety) in order to guarantee the least leakage risk of the components during the working cycle, which may contaminate the product.
Throughout the production process there are also some magnets that remove any ferrous components before the grain enters into pre-cleaning and cleaning, to minimize the risk of dust explosions. The flour sifters security complemented by additional magnets, are positioned at the end of the process and made up of veils that prevent the passage of any other component except of the product.
