This course is intended for employees, supervisors and managers directly involved with milling plant operations to produce semolina and flour. Participants will be introduced to a variety of technical and economic analytical tools for milling process evaluation. Technical tools to be presented include product granulation, cumulative ash, step chart development, and flow sheet equipment allocation analysis. Economic tools to be discussed include yield management, divide milling, and the impact of moisture on profitability. The impact of wheat quality characteristics, cleaning, and conditioning on mill operations will be quantitatively explored. Selected roller mill grinding, sifting, and purification variables will be examined in depth. Special emphasis will be put on mill balance and troubleshooting skill development during hands on laboratory exercises and access to the Milling Hub, a 150T/24hr durum wheat mill.
