Adjusting for Speed and Capacity with Your New Roller Mill
Updated: Aug 31
The Benefits of Having an Efficient, High-Capacity Electric Mill Saving time and working smart are important for any professional, and especially for farmers; no farmer likes to sit and spend their entire day on one task. This is why it’s so important to have equipment that does the job right the first time and allows a farmer to move on to other tasks at the same time. High speed, high capacity electric roller mills crack corn and small grains quickly, so you can get back to your normal routine as soon as possible. We understand that the name of the game is getting pounds on your animals but you shouldn’t have to devote your entire day to this task.
How you Can adjust the Rolling Configuration of your Electric Mill
Beyond the speed and processing capabilities of roller mills, you have the ability to adjust and customize the configuration of your high performance equipment to meet your needs. The closer together you can place the rollers the larger the crack on your feed. You can also make adjustments for the type of feed, such as corn versus small grains, like wheat. This helps aid digestion and adds pounds as quickly as possible. However, you may not necessarily want to push your livestock to gain weight quickly. In these cases, it’s possible to position rollers further apart and achieve a lighter crack. An ABC 900 large capacity electric roller mill can process 900 BSH/hr of dry corn or 700 BSH/hr or high-moisture corn in the closest configuration; this means more power and more kernels per hour. Spreading the rollers as far apart as possible, to create the lightest possible crack on corn and small grains can take between 490 and 360 BSH/hr, depending on the type of feed.
Why Choose a Lighter Crack?
While a lighter crack may not be the right choice for everyone, especially those who are trying to add pounds to their animals as quickly as possible, it can be the right choice agricultural professionals prefer a slower and gentler approach. A lighter crack can slow the rate of digestion and placement of weight on the animal. The ability to change roller configuration on your high capacity electric roller mill allows you to process small grains, which isn’t possible with higher speed configurations.
You Have the Flexibility with an Electric Roller Mill Whether you prefer small grains and a slower approach to adding pounds to your animals or you’re looking for the fastest possible processing, highest amount of BSH/hr and adding weight to your livestock quickly, you have the ability to customize the configuration of your roller mill.
