The food industry is constantly developing new applications and adopting consumer trends. But new trends do not always mean a new mill. For 36 years, Gut Rosenkrantz in Neumünster has been using our VL high-speed mill to grind organic cereals into bakery meal.
Natural and organic products are becoming increasingly popular. Since the 1990s, the “Handelsgesellschaft für Naturprodukte Gut Rosenkrantz” in Neumünster has been selling various organic products such as organic food and feed grains and ground products. In order to be able to produce the best possible products, special attention must be paid to every technical detail right at the beginning of the process chain. To achieve the desired qualities, the grain structure and fineness achieved by milling are of decisive importance. For this reason, the company has relied for years on a Tietjen VL 4 hammer mill to grind their organic grain.
The hammer mill VL is the ideal universal mill for a wide range of applications at lower throughputs. Whether coarse grinding of compound feed or fine grinding of pet food and fish feed or in food production: as a true all-rounder, it can also be used for grinding chemical components, salts, spices, and natural products such as wood.
For 36 years, the Tietjen hammer mill in Neumünster has been in operation to grind grain. The VL 4 mill was built in 1985 in our Hemdingen plant and sold to the company at that time, Mühle Thode, for grain milling. After the “Handelsgesellschaft für Naturprodukte Gut Rosenkrantz” took over the operation, it mills organic grain for the company.
As our VL is ideally suited for grinding dry and free-flowing bulk materials, it has now been grinding organic oats, organic spelt and organic wheat into meal – with the highest quality and safety – for years. The mill is fed via a dosing chute and the grist is sucked to the silo via a pneumatic discharge after grinding.
We are pleased to be able to contribute to sustainability in process technology with our long-life mills and wish Gut Rosenkrantz a long lifetime for their Tietjen VL.
Uganda is among the world’s poorest countries. Inadequate opportunities to process raw materials leads to post-harvest losses. A local processing centre is now used to turn raw matoke bananas into valuable dry products such as flour, porridge or biscuits.
Hankkija has been operating a hammer mill since 2013. When capacity was not sufficient with the installed hammer mill, Hankkija decided to expand and purchase another mill.
Together with a partner from the dosing and washing machine technology industry, Tietjen has
created one of the ‘best’ processing plants for commercial biowaste in Berne – and the depackaging machine DRM 800 double-rotor separation mill is its centrepiece.
