Rice Mill Maintenance


The most important part of the whole rice milling process is the rice mill machine. It is a grain processing equipment. Regular maintenance of Rice mill machinery is needed to prolong the service life of rice mill machines.

Let’s briefly introduce the maintenance of rice mills or we can say rice milling machines ( because machinery plays a major role in milling businesses).

Maintenance of Rice Mill Machine

To understand the whole process of the rice mill maintenance job, we divided maintenance into sub-tasks.

  • Regular Moisture Testing
  • Cleaning Whitening Room
  • Rice Mill Machinery Parts & supportive parts Checking
  • Regular Maintenance tasks

Regular Moisture Testing

In Rice Mills, moisture control is a primary task related to maintenance. An increase in moisture content of rice can increase broken rice quantity. The Rice milling machine must maintain a certain degree of dryness. Moisture content should not exceed 14% & 15%.

Result of Ignorance

  • Increase in broken Rice grain
  • Affected rice quality
  • Increases Power Consumption

Cleaning Whitening Room

Rice Mill maintenance staff should pay attention to checking scattered pieces of remains such as nails, stones and other impurities in the rice.

Result of Ignorance

  • Causes blockage in Whitening Room
  • Damage the rice screen

Rice Mill Machinery Parts & supportive parts Checking

Check the rice mill machine parts such as rice sieve, rice knife and cylinder core on regular basis also before starting the machine.

Result of Ignorance
