What ends up on the plate as the basis of a healthy and balanced nutritional diet carefully handled and prepared and processed with technical precision. Products such as flour, bran, semolina and coarse meal provide the basis for various bread and bakery products and are important for many other foods such as pizza, pasta, sauces and soups, confectionery ready meals and baby food. Annually, approximately 300 million tons of flour are produced for daily baking and pasta production in thousands of mills; in Germany, approximately 7 million tons in nearly 300 mills of different sizes.
Milling is one of the most traditional crafts, but is based on the latest technologies today. The PETKUS Groups’ MMW Technology GmbH is a supplier of cutting-edge technology and guarantees high-quality solutions. System sizes designed by MMW start at a processing capacity of ca. 100 t/24 h and according to customer requirements processing lines of up to 600 t/24 h are available. Several lines of the same or different capacity can be combined, customized and integrated into larger milling systems according to customer wishes. The use of modern technology contributes to product quality and low specific costs in EURO per tons.
Technologically, milling techniques for the production of flours from different grains vary, although essentially the same main machines such as roller mills and plansifters are used. These particular machines are supplemented by and combined with a series of special machines. Machine configuration and individual milling diagrams contribute significantly to the maximum yield of the desired end product and ensure high quality at low costs.
