Russell Finex helps Agri Choice optimize its rice flour quality
Agri Choice Food Products Pvt. Ltd. is a leading food processing company specializing in high quality, nutritional and hygienic foods. With an Indian patent for producing Low GI (Glycemic Index) rice through its unique milling technology, Agri Choice has a wealth of reputable experience in the production of rice-based products.
The company offers a wide range of value-added products using a combination of different cereals, millets and pulses known as Multigrain and categorized as low GI. One of the main products of Agri Choice is its ‘Ready mix rice idli’. To make sure the idli is soft and fluffy, the rice flour ingredient is ground into a particle size distribution of between 230 – 500 microns. Previously Agri Choice was using common pan sifters and facing major issues with the accuracy of particle size distribution and flowrates resulting in unacceptable levels of rejects of its final products.
When Agri Choice looked to expand its production plant, they wanted a high-capacity hygienic separator to optimize the grading of rice flour. Russell Finex recommended the Finex Ultima™, a high-performance vibratory round separator and the Vibrasonic® Deblinding System.
An ideal screening machine for the food processing industry, the Finex Ultima™ separator is designed to provide increased productivity, accurate grading and lower noise levels.
The Vibrasonic® Deblinding System was also installed to prevent mesh blinding and increase productivity during the grading process. The Vibrasonic® Deblinding System is very popular in the food processing industry as it can easily be installed on any existing screens or separator.
With the installation of two 48” Finex Ultima™ machines, Agri Choice was able to increase production capacity from 450kg/hr to 750kg/hr whilst providing 100% consistent product quality without any product losses. The installation of the Finex Ultima™ therefore resulted in a 66% increased capacity of the rice flour, boosting the overall production capacity of the ready mix rice idli.
Established in 1934, Russell Finex is a global leader with over 85 years’ experience providing industrial sieving and separation solutions for the processing industry.
