Maize Milling

Maize, known as Corn in North America, is one of the three principal cereal grains, with rice and wheat, grown for human and animal consumption.

The Satake VBF Vertical method of dry degermination was launched six years ago, since them the technology has completely revolutionised the processing of maize. More than 80 system have been installed in southern Africa and many more in north and south America. 

The Satake VBF system provides superior extraction at reduced fat levels, whilst also eliminating the need for complex gravity separation systems to be installed after the degermination system. The Satake VBF system produces a higher percentage of grits and less flour. It also has the lowest specific energy usage.
