Flour Milling Process for the 21st Century

  • D. E. Forder


During the 20th century the major process for converting wheat into flour for human consumption has undergone a period of gradual refinement following the replacement of stones by rollermills towards the end of the last century. With improved engineering, machine capacities have increased significantly and this, along with the introduction of pneumatic conveying, has caused a steady move towards plants of higher output per unit of building volume. This trend has continued to be driven by the commercial necessity to contain costs in a highly competitive industry.
