Bran & husk
When processing wheat, spelt or other types of grain, various product components are produced, e.g. in a typical flour mill mainly wheat flour, which is used for the production of bakery products. However, bran, i.e. the husk of the wheat grain, which has a higher or lower starch content, is also produced as a by-product.
This grain component is used especially in the compound feed industry for the production of animal feed.
Pelleting of bran is advisable for various reasons, especially for storage and transport reasons. While bran has a low volume, compacting this product results in a higher bulk density, which reduces storage and transport costs and significantly increases profitability.
Advantages of pelleting can also be found in the well-known KAHL technology. The KAHL press configuration has a specific advantage for all products with a high fibre content, which also applies to bran. Thanks to the KAHL flat die pelleting press, no pre-grinding is required. Such a by-product can therefore be pelleted easily and without great effort. A simple integration into the mill makes it possible to pellet the product and sell it as valuable animal feed.
The comprehensive KAHL machine portfolio offers numerous possibilities to meet different requirements for the pelleting of wheat bran, spelt bran, barley bran, rye bran, oat bran, and other varieties. Over 140 years of experience and numerous installed plants show that we find the right solution for any requirement.
