We want to dedicate an entire page to our plants cause we are very proud of them. During the years we invested at our best and now we own advanced technology jewels. In Cassibile production plant wheat reception happens in two independent pits; 3 emptying systems, independent too, allow a maximum rate of 350 tons/h. We can unload 3.000 ton ships in a single day. Our storage capacity is of 8700 tons.
The milling plant is a Buhler signature plant. Completely restored in 2011, it has a diagram that can meet the ambitious project requests, and the most important of these is to produce high quality flours with low energy consumpion. We have realized innovative projects for many years, in order to save precious electrical energy.
We dispose of more than 5,5kw powerful electrical engines of the best efficiency class and several inverters to “dose” only the energy which is necessary to the machines, allowing to consume “only” 5kwh per milled 100kg. We produce part of this energy with a photovoltaic system. Tanks for final products contain more than 500 tons of flour each, and in the warehouse we have space for 11.000 palletized sacks. Side products are stored in cells with total capacity of 300 tons, and, through a shifting carrier we move them at 30 ton/h with a single finger on a remote control! The milling plant in Palazzolo Acreide, also provided from the swiss multinational corporation Buhler, mills 240tons of durum wheat on a daily basis. Brand new built and started in 2009, it includes machines and accessories for raw material reception, pre-cleaning, cleaning and milling. In the cleaning section we have an high efficiency optical selector, model Sortex z3+, that ensures quality from a microbiological stand point: with the combination of advanced high definition cameras and algorithms that calculate the shape of the products, it can identify and eliminate foreign bodies and point defects also from little grains infested with fungus, mildew or bacteria. We also have a wheat peeling plant that allows to decontaminate the grain surface on the entire mass of the product, so granting the production of high quality flours. The heart of the plant is therefore the milling; it is made of 16 laminating machines with four cilinders plus one with 8 cilinders, together with the plansichters that allow the sifting of the several parts of the wheat grain and with the purifiers that grant accurate cleaning of the flours.
