How to Start a Mini Rice Mill Project


Rice is one of the most consumed staple foods in the world. It is also a major source of income for many farmers and millers. However, not all rice is processed in large-scale modern mills. Many small-scale farmers and households still use traditional hullers that produce low-quality rice with high breakage and impurities. To overcome these problems, a mini rice mill project can be a good option for them.

What is a Mini Rice Mill Project?

A mini rice mill project is a small-scale rice processing unit that can separate the husk and bran from the paddy and polish the rice. It can also produce pure rice bran that can be used for oil extraction or animal feed. A mini rice mill project consists of a paddy cleaner, a sheller, a separator and a polisher. The separator is based on the densimetric classification principle that separates the lighter husk from the heavier brown rice. The polisher can be either a vertical cone polisher or a horizontal rotor polisher that removes the bran layer from the rice.

A mini rice mill project can have different capacities, ranging from 150 kg/h to 2300 kg/h, depending on the model and features of the machine. It can also operate on different power sources, such as electric motor, diesel engine or solar power. A mini rice mill project can produce different types of rice, such as raw rice, parboiled rice or steamed rice, depending on the pre-treatment of the paddy.
