The grain and milling industry uses chemical fumigation to kill insects, eggs and larvae in its plants. Methyl Bromide is typically used for infestation control, but it will soon be banned by environmental agencies. The alternative chemical, Prophium Sulphonla is more expensive and is still unsafe. Many millers are producing organic products in which chemical infestation control cannot be used.
Mechanically destroying infestation is a safer and more affordable solution to fumigation. Sturtevant’s Infestroyer pin mill mechanically destroys 100% of the infestation (larvae and adult) with minimum fragmentation. The Infestroyer will impact the flour just hard enough to fully destroy insects, larvae and eggs, but it will not over grind the flour. This process results in a higher, safer quality product.
The following Sturtevant products process dry food ingredients.
