Grain Processing

Do you manufacture machinery or systems for grain processing? Do you want your machines to turn out top-quality, contamination-free products and save energy at the same time? Then you’ve come to the right place. Optimize your systems with air flow technology. Our fans and filters are geared to the needs of the grain-processing industry and come in a wide range of types.

Grain must pass through many processing stages on its way from the field to the table, and we develop perfect air control systems for each of them. We give top priority to gentle treatment, short processing times, high output and compliance with hygiene standards – all with the goal of turning out healthy, high-quality products. And in spite of our focus on efficiency and cleanliness we never forget the importance of aroma and taste in the final product. Cost is another factor that we never overlook.

Before grain can be processed into food, a number of cleaning steps are necessary. The first takes place in the combine harvester, and intermediate products like fine flour, coarse-grained flour, semolina, coarse meal and bran also have to be cleaned. In food processing, good taste and appearance depend on having a high-quality product free of foreign matter.

Various technologies are available for cleaning. Winnowing machines are excellent for separating materials according to size and weight. LTG fans are particularly suitable for this purpose and can achieve a high degree of purity. They separate light, fine impurities like chaff, straw and dust from all kinds of grain: wheat, barley, oats, millet, maize, rice, durum wheat, buckwheat, spelt and sorghum, for example.LTG fans can also carefully and gently separate shells and pods in the production of cocoa, soybeans, beans, peas and lentils.

LTG tangential fans have the advantage that they distribute the mixture to be cleaned in a perfectly uniform manner over the entire working width. This allows a maximum degree of separation, along with increased capacity and throughput. LTG machines are at the leading edge thanks to their compact design. LTG filter components allow you to minimisze dust emissions in your production. Our efficient dust-removal and filter solutions provide a high level of safety and prevent dangerous dust explosions in accordance with ATEX requirements.

There are many different technical solutions for winnowing, including several based on fans. Our product range features a wide variety of designs and sizes. LTG fans for food machinery are available with special materials and seals as well as in ATEX explosion-protected versions. Their design can also be modified, which is important for optimum machine integration. LTG tangential fans are highly successful here. They distribute air very evenly over large areas and deliver excellent performance in many process steps, ensuring efficiency and top quality.

We use state-of-the-art simulation tools and have the know-how in fluid dynamics and thermodynamics to optimise your process, product or system. Together with a leading grain-processing company, we have developed a totally new, patented technology. Would you like to be a technology leader too? Our engineering services can help.
