Parboiling and Drying Equipment

AGI Milltec
AGI Milltec's automated, continuous, parboiling and dryer system is one of the most proficient options to increase rice yield and meet the demands of modern millers.

This system is intended to parboil paddy, a process of partially cooking the paddy while ensuring that the grain husks remain intact. This process hardens the paddy and allows it to withstand the stress of milling activities, without losing nutritional value. Our parboilers and driers are constructed with stainless steel to maximize hygiene standards and processing. They are equipped with a hot air blower and a heat exchanger to ensure maximum efficiency in heat transfer during the parboiling process.

The process requires a special boiler, pre-cleaner, sufficient storage, soaking and parboiling system, fluidized bed dryer, a battery of column dryers with storage and conditioning bins.

The pre-cleaned paddy is soaked, cooked, and dried in stages to avoid brittleness and allows the gelatinization process to remain steady throughout.
