As we know, maize flour milling machine can mill maize efficiently with large yield. And it is quite popular in Kenya. But how much do you know about its structure?

It has the flowing devices working together:
Hulling device
a Corn Hulling:
(a) First close the mouth, then start engine. When it goes well, open the mouth.
(b) Hulling by humidification. Corn water content should be below 15%, 12-16kg water needed per 100kg corn. After water spreads evenly, the extra water needs to be out of container. The humidification time is 5-6 m in spring, summer and autumn, 10-12m in winter (there is no water on the surfaces of corn). Then adjusting the distance between the knife and roller, 3-5mm is better. Then putting the corn into corn container, to adjust the out-pressure-board, according to the customer.
(c) Pressure –inserted- board can take effect in drying, Hulling, and efficiency, highly or lowly. Please clear Hulling case and sifter hole when surfaces don’t come out sifter panel.
b clean wheat hulling: 4-6 kg needed per 100kg, it goes work when there is no water on wheat in 2-3m. Please clear the sift hole when surface out. Commonly, 1-2 time is ok.
c paddy Hulling: change sift panel to 1.1#and adjust the distance between knife and roller into 2-3mm,and adjust the pressure –inserted- board. Hulling drily paddy one time is ok.
Grits device
a grits machine and Hulling machine can work together. Put the hulled corn into container, and turn left the adjusting hand wheel. When hearing the little sound of metal grinding, open the feeding panel, but now should stay here and observe the grits to adjust the adjusting hand wheel: lock the locking handle when it’s satisfying. When it will finish, open the locking handle to turn rightly the adjusting hand wheel, then the grind tip leaves the grind core. Some accidental clash, when it turns off, is commonly phenomenon. Idling turning is forbidden when it is working.
b The method of producing corn flour and wheat flour is same to hulling. But the only difference is to tighten the adjusting hand wheel in every time. If needed, customers can use special baskets (one in the three-separated device).
When producing wheat flour, the wheat must be humidified, the humidification time is 24h, the water content is 10-13%, commonly four time can work successfully.
c The method of smashing feeds is same to mixture’. But because corns don’t need hulling, the adjusting hand wheel only is tightened, one time is enough.

Three- separated –device
a clutch is fixed at the end of axle, work close and leave open. There are 3 opens under the device, the first is big grits, the second is middle grits and the last is flour. Below the device, a pool, 1*0.5*0.3m, is needed to contain the output of two opens, the best containers are plastic barrels. The output of first open is also put to hulling machine.


There are three clutches in the machine: hulling device, grits device and three-separated device, which has its own clutch. So the clutches can work together and can also work alone. It is forbidden that clutches work together when the main axle or driven wheel is working, in case of damaging clutch contact surface.
