The Naldoni family has a long-established position in the milling industry with their first mill dating over 200 years ago. After many years of innovative and enlarging activities, the Naldoni family has completed the project of a brand-new mill, located just 13km from the historical mill of Faenza. The project was carried out in collaboration with GEA – Golfetto Sangati, which took over the building and supplying operations.
The mill was designed and built for a soft wheat production capacity of 250 tons per day. However, thanks to its technical expertise, GEA – Golfetto Sangati managed to increase capacity up 280 tons per day, guaranteeing at least 30 different grades of high-quality flour from a single source of wheat. A great result obtained also thanks to the machines and technical innovations of GEA – Golfetto Sangati, including:
• TPA intensive scourer used for both dry and wet grain processing. Healthy flours are obtained thanks to the intensive cleaning performed on the grain kernel surface, which significantly reduce the percentage of ashes and bacterial contamination;
• SYNTHESIS rollermill, which guarantees a linear and precise milling performance, thanks to the new CPN micrometric regulation system;
• MODULO 10/28 Plansichter, compact and lightweight because of its aluminum structure. The 740x740 frames guarantee an optimal and consistent sieving process. Being the frames in plastic and stainless steel, the machine results compliant with the current hygienic regulations, thus allowing for direct contact with food;
• SEMOLINA HP55 Purifier, a new concept of purification which makes the diagram more versatile. The purification surface has been increased by 10%, due to the utilization of 550mm square sieves, causing also a 12% footprint reduction. Given the different internal distribution of the sieves and the reduction in machine length, the air flow distribution is much more uniform and more easily controlled across the length of the machine, resulting in fine, medium and coarse semolina, with a high level of purification.
GEA – Golfetto Sangati and Molino Naldoni proudly took an important step in the evolution of milling technologies, combining milling tradition and innovation.
