PLC controlled and automated milling processes have enhanced global productivity of flour and improved quality, hygiene, and nutritive evaluation processes. This has enabled point to point customization regarding the flour consistency, process, grain quality, and even packaging.
The milling process evolved a lot from the ages of grinding the wheat between 2 large stone wheels to modern aged roller mills. When the wheat is passed through the roller mills, it creates a clipping action opening up the wheat grain.
The fragments of the wheat grains are passed through a structured arrangement of sieves that separates the different fragments of wheat. The rollers are adjusted according to the width of the wheat kernels.
There are 4 brake rollers and 12 reduction rollers. After the wheat grains are passed through them they have broken up particles lead to 16 flour streams. A bran stream, A germ stream, and a bran/flour/germ “wheat feed” stream.
The wheat grain consists of three parts and they are the enveloping skin, the embryo, and the endosperm. The enveloping skin covers 14.5% of the wheat grain. The embryo covers 2.5 % of the wheat grain and the endosperm covers 83% of the wheat grain.
The fragment of the white endosperm of the wheat grain is called Semolina. These fragments are channeled into a series of smooth reduction rolls which again is milled into white flour.
Bran, white flour or all-purpose flour, sooji and atta are manufactured in the same way and are collected from the different streams of fragments that are collected after grinding of the wheat grain. But Dalia is produced differently.
The wheat grains are cleaned properly by washing them under running water. Then the grains are softened in water for about 5 to 6 hours. After germination, the grains are dried in sunlight. After the grains are dried they go through the process of frying and grinding by attaching Chakki. Course and fine Dalia is obtained from this ground product.
The Clarion Group is an ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 22000:2005 certified company. We can produce 1200 MTS/day, thus capturing the position of largest flour millers in South India. We own fully automated and PLC controlled flour milling units, diminishing human contact in the mills to maintain the level of hygiene during production and packaging. The Clarion Agro Products have obtained all the major quality and export certifications like GMP, HALAL, State and Central FSSAI, HACCAP, IEC, and SSI.
