A Guide to Mini Rice Mill and Its Benefits


Rice is a staple food for many people around the world, especially in Asia and Africa. But rice processing is not easy. It has many steps, such as cleaning, de-stoning, husking, separating, milling, polishing, grading and packaging. These steps take time, labor and cost, and affect the rice quality and quantity.Many rice millers and farmers use a mini rice mill to make rice processing easier and faster. A mini rice mill is a small machine that can turn paddy rice into white rice. It can take off the husk and the bran layers from paddy rice to make whole white rice kernels.

How a Mini Rice Mill Works

A mini rice mill has three main parts: a paddy cleaner, a sheller and a polisher. This is how it works:

  • Paddy cleaner: This part cleans the paddy grains from impurities, such as stones, dust and straw, by using air suction and vibrating screens.
  • Sheller: This part takes off the husk from the paddy grains by using a chain drive and a gear amplification mechanism that spin a huller shaft in a housing with paddy. The husking happens because of the shearing force between the huller shaft and a fixed plate.
  • Polisher: This part takes off the bran layers from the husked rice by using either a vertical cone polisher or a horizontal rotor polisher. The polishing happens because of the friction force between the rice kernels and the polishing stones or rollers.

After these steps, the white rice is ready for grading and packaging.

The Benefits

A mini rice mill has many benefits over manual or semi-automatic methods. Here are some of them:

  • Low cost: A rice mill costs less than a large or medium-sized rice mill machine. It can save you money on buying and maintaining the machine.
  • Small size: A rice mill is smaller than a large or medium-sized rice mill machine. It can save you space on installing and storing the machine.
  • Easy operation: A rice mill is easy to operate than a large or medium-sized rice mill machine. It only needs one or two operators to watch and control the whole process. It also has simple structure and user-friendly interface.
  • High efficiency: A rice mill can process rice faster than manual or semi-automatic methods. It can process up to 600 kg of paddy rice per hour. This can save you time and labor costs.
