KSU to host milling course in June
Kansas State University’s IGP Institute, in conjunction with Bühler Inc., will host its Bühler–KSU Executive Milling course June 13-17 at the IGP Institute Conference Center in Manhattan, KS. Designed for mill owners, directors and managers, the course will offer an introduction to grain cleaning, flour milling, and flour quality and functionality.
“It is a great course for new managers, sales personnel or customer service representatives,” says Jason Watt, Bühler’s instructor of milling. “This course will give them an understanding of the flour-milling process and allow them to be more successful in the industry.”
Course topics include raw materials, cleaning systems, milling systems, finished product handling and storage, performance evaluation in a flour mill, and factors that influence an investment decision and basics in aspiration. Also included will be hands-on exercises demonstrating the influences of wheat characteristics on yield and mill performance, special systems for mycotoxin reduction and top quality flour production, machine and flow sheet technology, system design and various tempering philosophies.
