13/06/2016: Alapala - New Generation Milling: Similago II Roller Mill introduction movie

A perfect evolution of technology

The new Similago II is the result of Alapala’s 60 years of experience in the technology and engineering of roller mills and the complete range of milling machinery. The
Similago II is designed for high, continuous and consistent grinding of cereals such as wheat, maize (corn), rye, spelt, barley and sorghum. A uniform feed rate across the grinding rolls ensures a consistent grind.

Structurally, the
Similago II has a sturdy frame which is a desk type, precision machined by using the most modern CNC machines. The steel used is a special quality high carbon steel. The bearings and the grinding rolls are directly mounted on to the frame. This sturdy construction gives the Similago II the ability to perform high capacity grinding with continuous operation without effecting its performance and reliability day in and day out.
The internal product contact parts are made from stainless steel which also stop the adhering and accumulation of the product and condensation.

Similago II is silent in running due to the special profiled transmission belt, drive pulleys and tensioning pulleys which differentially drive the rolls. No greasing is required which provides a clean environment. Roll temperature is kept low by the air circulation provided by the aero dynamic design of chamber structure.

Easy and fast change of the rolls can be performed in 20 minutes, which is a significant reduction in down times. No special tools are required as the standard tools can be used. No lifting devices for the roll sets are required as they can be dismounted directly from the machine onto a cart. The grinding rolls are mounted on self-aligning double row roller bearings which are housed in 25 mm thickness housing. 
For inspection purposes, double walled inspection door (Alapala design) which can be opened and closed easily due to a weight system avoiding the use of latches. This enables the doors to be dismounted / mounted to from the machine without the use of fasteners. The universal frame of the Similago II allows the use of grinding rolls with either a diameter of 250 mm or 300 mm.
