Abstract:

Rice is one of the most important staple food crop of India for more than two-thirds of its population. The Rice milling is the process that remove the husk and the bran layers, produce an edible, white rice kernel. Depending on the requirements, the rice should have a minimum number of broken kernels. The paper presents results of study on the milling characteristics of Padmini variety of paddy in laboratory model equipments and to compare the milling recovery in a huller and single pass rice mill. From the study, it was concluded that the slenderness ratio of paddy is 4.16. The husk content and bran content of Padmini variety of paddy is 18 and 5.65 %, respectively. The total milling recovery is 75.1% in laboratory equipments. The capacity of huller and single pass rice mill were found to be 190 and 480 kg/h with energy consumption of 3.7 and 7.3 kWh, respectively .The milling recovery and head rice yield is higher in single pass rice mill having rubber roll sheller and horizontal abrasive polisher. The milling efficiency of single pass rice mill is 95.6% as compared to 86 % in huller.
