During the milling process, the malt is crushed and prepared for mashing – the first step of the brewing process – the most important requirements being:
• crushing of the grain to the desired particle sizes
• securing constantly low proportion of flour
• maximum protection of husk structure
• the possibility of husk separation
• adaptation to varying malt qualities
The classic dry milling process meets these requirements to an extremely high degree. It is not without reason that most of the largest breweries in the world use this system of grist preparation for lauter tun brewhouses, mostly complemented by upstream conditioning of the malt.
Künzel mills excel by their outstanding compliance with the technological requirements and for their extremely low operation costs, such as reduced power consumption, a long operating life of the rollers, the serviceability and an extremely long service life of the complete system.
This is the result of almost 100 years of experience in mill design, of solid constructions and high-precision manufacturing carried out by experienced professionals in our factory located in the Upper Franconian town of Mainleus.
A special advantage of the Künzel 6-roller mill is the intermediate screening between each pair of rollers, which results in particularly precise fractionating.
All safety requirements are taken into account. Künzel mills are certified and represent the state of the art in safety technology.
Control is carried out via a programmable electronic control system with Profibus for communication with and integration into a supervisory process control system.
Our know-how not only includes the product cycle starting from malt production, but also the control and automation as well as the entire process technology right into the brewhouse: “From malt to mash”.
