Rice Mill Functions
Rice is the most Favorite and most widely used food world over and this blog covers the modern rice milling process as we very well know, Rice is a natural product and is produced by farming on land. Farming produces rice in the form of PADDY.
This paddy consists of rice covered by the protection layer known as Husk. After cutting paddy from the field, it is cleaned to remove dust sticking on it. And then this paddy is taken to rice mill for final processing.
Many years back two iron rolls rotating at different speeds were used to remove the husk. These were called as hullers. In these two iron rolls, paddy is infused and by the friction of two rolls rice is separated from the husk.
But a big disadvantage of this system was that due to the hardness of rolls, a very high percentage of rice was broken during the process and in today’s modern world price difference between full rice and broken rice is very high.
To overcome this difficulty, our scientists did innovation and hence came into picture Rice Rubber Roller.
These rice rubber rolls rotate at different speeds and the paddy is infused between the two rolls and thereby resultant friction leads to removal of husk from rice.
This process leads to lots of saving by saving broken percentage of rice. Since the husk is light in weight, therefore, this is collected.separately by using suction blower system which collects husk in a separate bin and this also allows the decreased temperature of Rice mill Rubber Roller.
After this rice is taken to grader to separate the broken rice from full-length rice. Next step is the complete cleansing of rice and removal of dust by the blower system.
Whitening of Rice
Then the next step is the whitening of rice. since rice obtained by the above method has a layer of bran attached to it which is light brownish in color. and people love to buy and eat more and more white and bright color, their bran layer has to be removed to give the rice a very whitish color.
For this rice is taken to the machine called WHITENER STONE where rice is put in a machine where an emery stone is rotating at high speed. This emery stone is generally made of silicon carbide.
The friction between rice and silicon carbide rolls polishes rice and removes the bran layer attached to it. Before putting rice in the whitening machine, a strong magnet is attached to the machine, which removes any sort of iron ( if any) in rice and hence protects the stone to be damaged by iron.
Also before putting rice in the whitening machine, it is passed through a DESTONER machine. This is also very necessary since rice is a natural product and if any type of hard mud as stone goes to the whitening machine, it will certainly damage the emery rolls since they are made by glass technology and are easily breakable by any type of rough use.

This bran layer and husk which are a byproduct of rice mills also do not go waste. Husk is used in boilers to generate steam used in rice mills and bran is used to make BRAN OIL which is an edible product.
