Wheat moisture regulation
2. The purpose and role of wheat moisture regulation.
The purpose is to adjust the moisture of wheat in order to change the physical and biochemical properties of the wheat grain, so that it is suitable for the requirements of the milling process and obtain good process results.
The purpose is to adjust the moisture of wheat in order to change the physical and biochemical properties of wheat grains to make them suitable for the requirements of the milling process and to obtain good process results.
To ensure the stability of the milling process and facilitate the operation and management.
Ensure that the moisture of the flour meets the national standard.
It makes the wheat skin layer tougher and easier to keep the bran intact during the milling process, so as to scrape the endosperm from the bran flakes.
During the milling process, it is easy to keep the bran intact to scrape the endosperm from the bran flakes, which is conducive to ensuring the quality of flour and improving the flour yield.
In the process of water conditioning, the crust and endosperm of the wheat grain absorb water and swell one after another, and produce, so that the bond between the crust and endosperm is improved.
The binding force between the skin and endosperm is weakened, which facilitates the separation of the skin and endosperm and facilitates milling.
The starch and protein contained in the endosperm are cross-mixed together, and during the water conditioning process, the water absorption rate of the starch and protein is reduced due to the
During the process of water conditioning, the starch and protein absorb water at different rates, causing intergranular production between the two, making the endosperm structure loose and less strong.
The endosperm structure becomes loose, the strength is reduced, and it is easy to be finely ground into flour, which is conducive to reducing power consumption.
3. The process of wheat room temperature moisture regulation
After the wheat is watered by the watering equipment, the wheat is mixed and stirred by the screw conveyor to
After the wheat is watered by the watering equipment, it is stirred and mixed by the screw conveyor, so that the water is distributed more evenly among the wheat grains. If the amount of water does not reach the required level after the wheat is watered
If the amount of water does not reach the requirement, it can be watered for the second time, and then sent to the wheat wetting bin to wet the wheat.
The wetting time of wheat after watering is usually 18-24 hours, and it can be extended in places where hard wheat is processed or the temperature is low.
The time of wheat wetting can be extended in hard wheat processing or lower temperature.
