In order to produce flakes, you will need - apart from a steamer and a tempering bin - one thing above all: a flaking mill which shapes the moistened and heated grains as desired.
Via a feed roller, the product is fed uniformly to the two flaking rolls adjusted parallel to each other with a gap, which corresponds to the desired flake thickness. A cooling and heating device for the rolls offers the opportunity to flake also products which can only be flaked at certain temperatures.
Scrapers below the rolls avoid unwanted product adhesions. The flakes are discharged directly below the flaking rolls and are conveyed to a fluidized bed drier.
