North America’s top food producers have relied on Precision Roll Grinders for error-free service, emergency assistance and maintenance. For all food processing industries, true roll grinding (which we specialize in) is better than in-place roll grinding. In-place (block) grinding is done on the processing equipment and in the machine bearings, which does not produce rolls that meet specification. If something is off on one side or anywhere on the roll, it can’t possibly attain proper shape, roundness and TIR.
PRG’s true roll grinding results in rolls that meet or exceed OEM specifications — and deliver significant efficiencies and savings:
All work is done with a proven process that’s guided by computer data. Bearings and housings are removed to guarantee a perfectly round roll in a temperature-controlled facility. In addition, all rolls are measured using a 24-point SpecCheck™. PRG never blindly assumes bearings are working properly and that the journals are without issues such as chatter or lack of roundness
We’ve serviced virtually all roll types in the food processing industry, including:
Which means your flakes are likely to be out of spec as well. And according to a study published by the American Oil Chemist Society*, flakes that fall outside of the 0.010”-0.015” desired thickness will not release all of their oil. This discarded oil represents between $7-16 million in lost revenue every year.DOWNLOAD ONE-SHEET
