Vertical Whitener (VBF)

Vertical Whitener (VBF)



The Satake VBF series of vertical friction rice whitening machines incorporates the most advanced technologies available and has proved to be superior to competitive machines in rice mills throughout the world. The versatility of the VBF for milling rice of all degrees of whiteness with minimum brokens makes it the ideal machine for modern rice mills. It’s processing capability ranges from all kinds of rice (long, medium and short) to other cereal grains such as maize.

1. Higher Milling Yield and Fewer Brokens:
The “state of the art” milling chamber produces evenly milled rice using very low pressure, thus producing higher yields with fewer brokens while still effectively removing bran streaks.

2. Vertical Design :
The vertical milling chamber allows grains to be milled evenly. The vertical design is also more power efficient than a horizontal design, while minimizing the required floor space and installation cost.

3. Easy Maintenance:
The screens and two-piece milling roll are easily removed from the side of the machine.

4. Water Mist Operation (Optional):
The use of a water mist in the milling chamber softens the bran layers for more efficient removal. This unique milling action produces effective bran removal with minimum increase in rice temperature.

5.Allowance for Plant Layout:
The model is available in four types with the inlet and outlet on the different sides. This allows a flexible plant layout minimizing conveying requirements.

All Satake products are the subject of continuous development and, as a result, their specification may change and differ in detail from those shown.
