From helping the top breakfast cereal producers keep their flaking mills churning out everyone’s favorite flaked cereals to assisting crush mills create more product from less raw material, PRG’s grinding experts have an extensive understanding of what manufacturers in the flaking and crush mill industry require.
For flaking mills and crush mills, true roll grinding — which is what we specialize in — is better than in-place roll grinding. In-place (block) grinding is done in bearings on the mill, which does not produce rolls that meet specification. If something is off on one side or anywhere on the roll, the roll can’t possibly attain proper shape, roundness and TIR.
