Golfetto Sangati exports technology to the U.S. market

Italgrani Usa, a leading miller of durum wheat in North America headquartered in the center of America’s heartland, St. Louis, MO, renews its state-of-the-art technology by the acquisition of a brand-new line of Rollermills Synthesis by Golfetto Sangati.

With a production capacity of 1,000 t/24h, the milling plant Italgrani Usa in St. Louis is one of the largest durum wheat mills in North America. Built in 1987, and in the following decades it has been periodically renovated in order to maintain its efficiency consistent with maximum levels.
In order to meet the needs of a constantly growing market, Italgrani Usa has decided to increase its production capacity of durum wheat intended for the entire U.S. market by relying on technology capable of meeting the most stringent health requirements and to allow the maximum accuracy control in milling process.
In addition to the robustness and construction quality of the machines used, the simplicity and speed of maintenance operations represent a key element ensuring continuous and efficient production for Italgrani Usa.
With these objectives, Italgrani has selected Golfetto Sangati (Pavan Group) as an industrial partner for the construction of a grinding mill consisting of 22 Rollermills Synthesis controlled by the newest generation of Siemens touch screen interfaces.
Designed and built in the Italian facilities of Quinto di Treviso, the Rollermills Synthesis have a robust structure with cast iron base to ensure machine stability and lower vibration and structural carbon steel beams that connect the two bases, whereas all the parts that come into contact with the product are made of extruded anodized aluminium.
The machines are provided with an internal double wall with cavity for condensation prevention and acoustic insulation; the internal structure is made of electrically welded stainless steel.
The grinding rolls, internally produced at the Italian plant of Golfetto Sangati, are made from centrifugal cast iron with very hard surface; the machines installed at Italgrani are equipped with 1000 or 1250 mm rolls, depending on the milling capacity required; a single belt connects the fast front roll to the slow rear roll by means of a tightening pulley mounted on an eccentric system, ensuring reliability and rapid maintenance. Golfetto Sangati has been the first to introduce the belt transmission, and continued improving this technology in order to assure the most reliable equipment on the market nowadays. 
This new system, currently being installed, almost completely replaces the existing rolling mills and allows production of more than 1,000 t/24h, placing Italgrani Usa at the top for efficiency, production capacity and quality of the finished product and confirming as one of the leading flour suppliers in the North American food industry.
