The Evolution of the Flour Grinder Mill

In the old days, flour grinder mill were characterized as heavy-duty machinery that required a lot of manual labour in order to grind wheat into fine flour. A variation of this invention in early history was the Gristmill, which ground grain into flour. It also refers to the grinding mechanism and the building that holds it. The gristmill dates back to as early as before 71 BC: there are writings from ancient Greek scholars that date water-powered grain-mills to rulers and kings in Asia and throughout Greece.


Classic North American style flour grinder mills were used on farms. In fact, operating this mill was an occupation. The miller, as it was called, was supported by farming communities. The community was dependent on their local mill because bread was a staple part of everyone’s diet.


Fortunately, technological innovation and development have led to changes in the industry and thus the flour grinder mill is now modern in function and efficiency.


It now comes in units that are efficient and convenient. Present day industrial mills are electrically or diesel operated.


These machines come in large sizes and are often used for industrial purposes. However, kitchen-size flour grinder mills are also available for use at a smaller scale in places that include bakeries and other food establishments. There are also variations of the flour grinder mill capable of grinding goods such as coffee beans, cocoa beans and barley. Buying these products as is instead of already ground can reduce cost.


More complex grinding systems have been engineered and created to economically grind and recovery things like fine powders. Classifier Milling Systems (CMS) has developed a grinding system that specializes in powder processing. Our Air Swept Classifier System is offered in 3-600hp models: it is durable, fully customizable and affordable. We also ensured that it would be easy to maintain and operate.
