At new River Mills, we go the extra step for you. We purchase local corn that has already been cleaned, but we want 100% clean corn before it goes into our mill. Our grain cleaner removes bits of cob and cob dust that the first cleaning missed, leaving us will 100% perfect cleaned corn.
This unit is called a grits-separator, it separates the grits from the cornmeal, the fine mesh screen inside the unit rotates allowing the fine meal to fall through and the larger bits go through a second screen that lets the grits fall through. Any trash that the first cleaning might have missed travels through the unit and is deposited out the other end. The grits separator also has a vacuum system that pulls off any chaff and corn flour from the grits side of the unit leaving the final product trash free.
