SWITZERLAND – Bühler, one of the world’s largest suppliers of milling technology, has introduced the Arrakis roller mill, a pioneering addition to its esteemed grinding portfolio, aimed at enhancing milling efficiency and versatility. 

Designed as an evolution from the highly regarded Airtronic roller mill, the Arrakis promises a host of innovative features tailored to meet the industry’s evolving demands.

At the heart of the Arrakis is its patented grinding gap adjustment feature, which ensures unparalleled precision in grinding operations. 

Complemented by a sturdy casted frame and advanced vibration absorption capabilities, this mill guarantees prolonged and uninterrupted operation, even under the most demanding conditions.

One of the standout features of the Arrakis is its integration of load cell sensors, which meticulously regulate product flow to maintain consistency. 

Furthermore, including foreign object protection systems provides added assurance by safeguarding against potential damage, significantly extending the mill’s lifespan.

Operational simplicity is another hallmark of Arrakis, which boasts an intuitive user interface that facilitates seamless control and monitoring. 

With secure remote access capabilities, operators can oversee operations from various devices, offering unparalleled convenience and flexibility.

Crucially, the Arrakis addresses the pressing need to retrofit existing milling plants with minimal disruption. 

With an identical footprint to its predecessor, the Airtronic, the Arrakis allows for direct replacement, streamlining the installation process and minimizing transition risks and expenses. 

Integrating an integrated fixed-speed feeding roll also contributes to a more efficient and streamlined system.

Maintenance has also been a focal point in the development of the Arrakis, with features designed to simplify upkeep and enhance food safety standards. 

Every aspect has been meticulously engineered for optimal performance, from a cleaning flap ensuring complete product discharge to brushless synthetic scrapers preventing buildup.

Furthermore, self-adjusting knife scrapers eliminate the need for manual realignment, further enhancing operational efficiency.

Other roller mills in Buhler’s portfolio include its integrated grinding system, Arrius, which is optimal for grinding wheat, durum, rye, barley, corn and spelt, Diorit, and  Dolomit, which allows a consistent and high-quality grinding of wheat, buckwheat, durum, corn, rye, barley, spelt, millet and other grain.
