a deficit State in the production of paddy and rice, the most modern
concepts of rice processing and milling has become highly inevitable
to increase the productivity. Lack of modern rice processing and
milling techniques has resulted in low out turn and losses due to
pests, animals, insects and pilferage are also seen very high.
a result, the millers with the encouragement from the Government
have turned up their minds to seek improved methods of milling to
avoid the drawbacks of traditional milling. The quality of the rice
produced in modern rice mills is marvelous and will be free from
dust, mud balls, immature black rice and other foreign materials.
next advantage, which adds to the feasibility of the modern rice-milling
concept, is that it can operate during any season. Both the consumers
and the entrepreneurs are benefited with the introduction of modern
rice mills. The former is benefited with the availability of fresh
products throughout the year and the latter is benefited because
they will be able to derive income throughout the year. The traditional
par boilers cannot operate during the rainy season and the promoters
of modern rice mills are benefited.
manufacture of rice starts with the procurement of paddy either
from the farmers or from the dealers. We try to procure paddy
mostly from the farmers directly during the harvesting season.
The harvesting season may vary from place to place. The promoters
take keen interest to procure the best quality paddy, which will
only give good quality rice. Paddy is also procured from the dealers
both from the State of Kerala and other States like Tamilnadu,
Pondicherry, Karnataka, Andra Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.
Since Kalady is the main centre for the marketing of both paddy
and rice, the paddy produced in the different States will reach
the market at Kalady to cater the various rice milling units located
in Kalady area and it's suburbs. The paddy procured is kept in
the godown according to their quality and the consumption is made
according to the requirement of the consumers.
PLANT, MACHINERY AND MANUFACTURING PROCESS OF RICE
The manufacture of rice from paddy is done in three stages, the
par boiling, drying and milling of paddy to make rice and rice
first part of the machines consists of the raw paddy cleaners,
destoner and dust blowers. The raw paddy is taken to the first
paddy cleaner machine and destoner machine through the dust blower,
where the dust, stones and immature paddy is removed.
is then taken to the paddy cleaner machine, where the dust, mud
balls and immature paddy is also removed. This is again cleaned
to make it completely free from the above foreign materials. Unless
the paddy is cleaned well, the rice produced out of such paddy will
be of inferior quality. The cleaned paddy is taken to the paddy
storage tanks through an elevator, where it is soaked in water to
remove the immature paddy completely. The soaked paddy is then taken
to the par boiling tanks through a metal chute.
is boiled to the required level in the par boiling tank using the
steam produced by the boiler machine. The boiler machine is fired
using the paddy husk produced during the production process. The
boiled product is then taken to the paddy drier machine through
a conveyor system, where it is dried using the hot air produced
by the boiler machine. We take utmost care in maintaining the quality
of the products manufactured by us. For the above, we give maximum
care to maintain the hygienic conditions both inside and outside
the factory premises and in every stage of production for ensuing
the quality of the products manufactured.
second part of the machinery is the drier machine, which consists
of the drying plant, heat exchanger and blower. The steam produced
by the boiler machine is used for drying the paddy in the drier
machine. Steam consists of both water content and heat content.
The water content in the steam is separated using a heat exchanger
machine, and the heat content is transferred to the paddy drier
machine, where the paddy is dried to the required level in eight
The boiled paddy is taken to the drying part of the machine through
an elevator attached to the drier machine. The flow of paddy in
the drying part of the machine is controlled by a filtrol, which
gets direct drive from an electrical motor through a gear box. The
drying time can be altered by adjusting the temperature of the drier.
When the paddy is sufficiently dry, it is taken to the milling section,
which consists of a paddy cleaner, rubber sheller, three cone polishers,
bran blower and separator, a destoner machine and a vibrator machine.
The paddy is being cleaned and the impurities are removed even while
the drying process is going on in the drier machine.
The dry paddy is then taken to the paddy cleaner machine, through
an elevator, where it is cleaned once again. The cleaned paddy is
taken to the rubber sheller machine through another elevator , where
the paddy husk is removed. The paddy husk is collected in a separate
room and this is used as the fuel for firing the boiler machine.
Normally the paddy husk produced during the production process will
be sufficient as fuel for the process of manufacturing.
shelled paddy will go to the paddy separator machine, which will
separate the unshelled paddy and the rice. The unshelled paddy will
go back to the rubber sheller machine once again and the shelled
paddy is taken to the first cone polisher machine, where the rice
bran is also removed from the rice. This will go to the bran blower
and separator machine, which will completely remove the bran from
the product. The bran will be collected in a separate room and will
be sold to the consumers directly. The hulled paddy is again taken
to the second and third cone polisher machines for polishing the
rice with rice bran. This will give the product more vitamin contents.
After polishing, the rice will go to the destoner machine and vibrator
machine, where the stones and broken rice are completely removed
from the product to make it superior in quality.
The final product is collected at the end of the milling section
and this will go to the rice colour sorter machine for removing
the black and immature rice completely. Thus the production of rice
is subjected to strict quality control right from procurement of
paddy to all the different stages of production for maintaining
our brand name in the market. We believe that consumers are the
best advertisers of any product and we have experienced the same
since the beginning.
sorter machine is newly introduced in the rice mill industry in
the State of Kerala. This machine is directly imported from Italy.
The rice collected at the end of the milling section reaches the
colour sorter machine through an elevator and is allowed to pass
through the machine , which completely remove the black grains present
in the rice and only good rice is collected as the end product.
These are packed in gunny bags, weighed, stitched and taken to the
market for human consumption. The rice colour sorter machine is
to be kept in a cool place for which a fully air conditioned factory
building is constructed for the industry.
