Chilled nip rollers

February 1, 2011




Used with corn, wheat, bran or rice, PFE temperature-controlled chilled nip rollers withstand high pressures and the related heat when opposing rolls are used to crush grain into cereal flakes. Internal water passages are engineered to create flake uniformity by controlling higher temperatures that result from the high-pressure nip process. Outer roll surfaces are ground to within .0002 in. TIR to ensure nip tolerances and consistent flakes.
