Kan-Roll for High Moisture Grain

The Kan-Roll High Moisture Roller Mill eliminates the cost of artificial drying. That means high-moisture corn can be harvested two to three weeks earlier than corn harvested for dry storage.

Your field loss can be decreased by 3% - 8% compared to dry storage increasing potential for use of the remaining residue. It is also more economical to purchase corn early before field loss occurs.

Using Kan-Roll improves feeding efficiency and the cost per pound of weight gain is lower when rolled high-moisture corn is included. Kan-Roll Mills provide higher volume for less labor. They handle 2,500-3,800 bushels of high moisture corn per hour, per mill, with approximately 1% whole grain and 3% fines.

The cost of milling will depend on many factors; moisture content, keeping the hopper full, the condition of the rolls and keeping foreign objects out of the mill. Generally, the cost will be about 1/4 of a cent per bushel, using 60 cents per gallon for the cost of fuel. It will require roughly 2 1/2 gallons of diesel fuel for each 1,000 bushels of grain.

Kan-Roll mills are customized for one to seven 12’ x 52 mill units. Every Kan-Roll mill is built to last with quality craftsmanship, including these features:

  • All units have slots for side boards to increase hopper capacity.

  • One-two unit 12" x 52" roller mills are mounted on three axles.

  • Three-seven unit 12" x 52” roller mills are mounted on four axles.

  • All portable units have built-in leveling jacks.

  • Feed control is adjusted with a hand lever at the bottom of each hopper.

  • High power magnets trap junk metal keeping it out of the mill and rations.

  • Roll hoppers have a screen top to deflect large objects.

  • No motors which mean less maintenance. We use extra heavy-duty gear boxes that are CNC machined.

  • All mills are made with manufactured cast build specific R&R parts.

  • Each mill unit has its own roll clearance control lever. Quick adjustments can be made with this lever. The clearance is also adjusted at the front and back of each roller.

  • A special sprayer can be installed to add additional moisture as the grain leaves the conveyor. By using the sprayer, dust can be held down in dry corn or other grains, and the moisture level can be balanced in high-moisture grain.

  • Power requirements: Each mill requires an estimated 100 HP of power.

  • One-two unit mills can be PTO driven and three-seven can be motor driven.
