Rice

Rice is the seed of the monocot plants Oryza sativa (Asian rice) or Oryza glaberrima (African rice). As a cereal grain, it is the most important staple food for a large part of the world human population, especially in Asia and the West Indies.
Unmilled rice, known as paddy (Indonesia and Malaysia: padi; Philippines: palay), is usually harvested when grains have a moisture content of around 25 percent. In most Asian countries, where rice accounts for almost the entire production of smallholder agriculture, harvesting is carried out manually, although there is a growing interest in mechanical harvesting. It can be carried out by farmers themselves, but is also frequently done by seasonal labour groups. Harvesting is followed by threshing, either immediately or within a day or two. Again, much threshing is still carried out by hand, but there is an increasing use of mechanical threshers. Subsequently, paddy needs to be dried to bring down the moisture content to no more than 20 percent for milling. A familiar sight in several Asian countries is paddy laid out to dry along the roads. However, in most countries the bulk drying of marketed paddy takes place in mills, with village-level drying being only used for paddy destined to farm families. Mills either sun dry or use mechanical driers or both. Drying has to be carried out quickly to avoid the formation of moulds. Mills range from simple hullers, with a throughput of a couple of tons a day, that simply remove the outer husk to achieve a paddy-to-rice conversion rate of up to 72 percent, to smaller, inefficient mills that often struggle to achieve 60 percent. These smaller mills often do not buy paddy and sell rice but rather serve farmers who want to mill their paddy for their own consumption.

Our solutions for this section:

DDC
The Electronic flow regulator, or impact device, is intended to control the outgoing flow of free-flowing granular products.
DFM
The loss in weight feeder DFM is intended to accurately measure and control the outgoing flow of free-flowing granular products.
The CSEp is intended to measure high capacity of free flowing granular and powdery products; a typical installation could be bulk product monitoring after ship uploader or product intake monitoring in a storage silo. Thanks to our special design we do not need for surge hopper.
CSE
The CSE has the same concept of the CSEp but smaller sizes, it is intended to be used for monitoring bulk product flow. The use of 2 weighing hoppers alternately fed by a diverter switch feeder allows a non-stop incoming product flow.
TSE
The TSE machine is intended to measure flows of granular and floury products.
GWG
Suitable for low production rate. It is ideal for free-flowing materials such as plastic granules, granular fertilizer, grain, rice, sugar, cereals, small stones, etc.
SBS
Suitable for average and high production rate. SBS is based on simplex or duplex net weight bagging scales and it is designed to handle both granular and powder products.
ABF is suitable for both granular and powder products. His capacity is ranging from 4 to 10 bags/min. It can handle bags of different material, even the most difficult one such as woven PP bags.
ABP120 is suitable for fine coarse granular FREE FLOWING products. it can run up to 20 bags/min.It can handle bags of different material, even the most difficult one such as woven PP bags. A special execution for aggressive environment and products is also available.
LCS
Portable and heavy-duty sewing systems suitable to close any pre-made open mouth bags
Portable and heavy duty heavy sealing systems suitable to close pre-made open mouth thermoplastic material bags
Heavy duty heavy sealing systems specifically designed to seal pre-glued, multi-wall pinch-style paper bags.
Labels are sewn together with bag
Automatic applicator for sticky labels. Labels are stuck on the filled bags.
NP
Heavy duty in-line check weigher for filled bags.
