5. Production Process of A whole Wheat Flour Plant
The milling of wheat is basically divided into two sections viz:- cleaning section and the milling section. The milling section comprises the chaff remover; destoner; scourer; washing machine; intensive dampener; and cockle separator. In the cleaning section, wheat is cleaned thoroughly before milling. Wheat is first passed through sieves to remove chaff and stalks. From the chaff separator it passes through a scouring machine wherein adhering dirt and mud and a part of the skin are removed. From the scourer, the wheat passes through the destoner and stones are completely separated from the grain. The grains are then fed into the washing machine where dust,  husk and  mud  balls are removed. The washed wheat is sent through a dampened to raise the moisture content of the grain and  then  for  conditioning.  After  conditioning for 36 hours, it is drawn for milling. The grain passes through a series of  milling rolls comprising the break rolls,  scratch  rolls,  and  the  polish  rolls,  purifiers,  and  plan  sifters  to  get  the desired fractions at the required percentages.
