Guidelines to Get the Best Out Of the Rice Rubber Rolls
A number of rice manufacturing companies make use of rubber rollers almost every day. The use of these is of utmost importance during the harvest season and one of the most efficient machines used during this time is the rubber roller huller.
As the name says it all, this machine makes use of two rice rubber rolls, both of which are of the same diameter. These rollers are operated at various speeds so that the husk gets removed from paddy. One of these rollers is fixed and the other can be adjusted.
Now let us have a look at a few general guidelines you need to follow while using these.
The paddy used in these machines needs to have at least 14% of moisture. It is also important to check the alignment of the rolls before you start the machine. The clearance of the rice rubber rolls should be about 0.5 mm or they should be placed in a way that they don’t touch each other.
When the machine is in operation, make sure the gates are open completely so that the rollers roll uniformly. You also need to check the rollers at regular intervals as they tend to wear off after prolonged use.
Before you stop the machine, you need to close the feed gate so that the rolls are completely clear of any paddy. If you have any extra rolls, make sure you pack them well and place them in a dark room, away from sunlight and any dust.
The rice rubber rolls that are uneven and worn out should be properly lathed so that the surface is smooth and very uniform.
So, now that you know the basic guidelines, you can follow the same. For more information, you can as well ask your supplier about the same.
