Losses of rice during milling in commercial rice mills of Sri Lanka



Losses of rice during milling in commercial rice mills of Sri Lanka



Agricultural Mechanization in Asia, Africa and Latin America 17(3): 37-40



Three main types of commercial rice mills, the modern mill, semi-modern mill and the traditional steel huller mill used for small scale rice milling in Sri Lanka were evaluated on the basis of milling quality and losses. Total milling output of the modern rice mill was 69.2% whilst that of the semi-modern and traditional huller mill were 68.8 and 67.5%, respectively. The modern rice mill gave the highest head rice yield of 66.1% and the traditional huller mill gave the lowest at 60.3%.
