Kice Shortflow Mill

The Kice Shortflow Mill® (KSU Mill) was developed by Steve Curran, milling professor in the Department of Grain Science at Kansas State University. The milling flow was patented by KSU (Patent # 5,192,028) in 1992. Kice Industries provided technical, engineering and manufacturing support during the development period and is now licensed by the university as the sole world wide manufacturer and distributor of the KSU Mill.

The KSU Mill concept produces high quality flour at a fraction of the cost of traditional long flow mills. Power consumption is greatly reduced on a per cwt basis, and the manpower needed to operate a KSU Mill is minimal. Customers have installed KSU Mills to serve several different purposes, the most common being the ability to increase a plant’s overall capacity without having to incur the cost of re-flow work and without having to provide costly down time to contractors during installation. Other customers have used the KSU Mill in completely new locations in order to target a local market. Originally the mill was developed as a way to build milling capacity in under developed regions of the world.

The first KSU Mill was commissioned in 1992 in California. Since that time Kice has installed and commissioned 30 KSU Mills in a total of five countries.

Features

The KSU mill is designed for processing hard, soft, and durum wheat varieties into white flours with high extractions and quality finished products. Typically the mills are pre-assembled complete at Kice prior to shipment. A modular concept is used which allows for pre-assembly and on-site installation. The modular concept allows the mills to be installed in simple, inexpensive buildings such as steel warehouses. Each project to date has been slightly different, and the KSU concept has been able to adapt easily and effortlessly in each case.

KSU Mills are supplied with a completely automated control package that is now designed and supplied by Kice Automation. ‘Off-the-shelf’ electrical components are used to ensure the availability of spare parts at a reasonable price. KSU Mills are installed in several different countries with differing electrical requirements. Kice Automation can supply electrical control packages to meet these needs. 

KSU Mills are supplied with Kice heavy duty equipment including pneumatics, dust control, pressure conveying and bran finishing systems.  

Standard Sizes

In order for a filter system to operate efficiently, it is imperative to listen, understand the application and apply Kice filters in a way that most effectively handles each specific set of circumstances. While Kice maintains a standard line of filters, we understand that most projects require some level of customization. Kice engineers have the ability to quickly yet accurately handle every detail of every project.
