AB / Grantex rice hullers are heavy duty, robust machines for the preparation of edible rice. They will shell paddy and whiten rice in one operation. Rice Hullers Capacity 230 - 590kgs/hr



To perform the shelling and/or whitening process, a specially chilled, hard cast iron cylinder is rotated inside a hardened screen. The degree of milling is controlled by:

  • The outlet slide, which regulates the time the rice remains in the machine.
  • The huller blade, which regulates the severity of the process and is adjustable to suit the variety and condition of the rice being milled, to keep breakage to a minimum.


This comprises of an enclosed steel drum with leather thongs attached. The drum rotates inside a perforated screen , the thongs giving the rice an added polish or lustre.
