Soybeans are, next to rape and sunflower seeds in Europe and palm fruit in Asia, one of the largest sources of industrial cooking oils. However, besides being an oil seed, soybeans are often also used to win fibres and proteins. Depending on the intended use different fractions of soya flour or grit must be produced.
Standard particle sizes achieved on Bauermeister mills include:
|Very fine flour||99 % < 32 µm||Gap Mill GM + Air Classifier CL|
|Fine flour||99 % < 74 µm||Universal Mill UM + Air Classifier CL|
|Flour||99 % < 100 µm||Universal Mill UM + Air Classifier CL|
|Coarse flour||99 % < 150 µm||Gap Mill GM|
|Grit||99 % > 150 µm||Universal Mill UM|
|Shells||95 % < 1000 µm||Gap Mill GM or Universal Mill UM|
Many Bauermeister mills are established all around the world for the grinding of full fat soybeans, soya press residue, soya protein enriched grit as well as soybean shells. For every intended product there is an optimal combination of mill parameters depending on the desired fineness. The right mill setup and integration of the mill into a production plant depend on the general conditions as well as on the individual requirements of every plant operator. For the evaluation of the criteria Bauermeister specialists are available for a competent consultation.
