Milling Chamber and Funnel
The wood used for the milling chamber of the mill is exposed to the highest demands. At full- power the mill-stone grinds the corn, using the rotation of the stone to transport the flour to the sides and the base of the milling chamber.
Abraded particles of our milling chamber could then enter your flour – for this reason (with the exception of the stone carriers and the mill-stone) we only use solid, natural, untreated and above all hard wood.
According to latest research natural, untreated beech wood is antibacterial, and it has long been known that wood is antistatic.
A wooden milling chamber is subject only to very small degrees of static loading so that practically no static loading is passed on to the flour.
In comparison many types of man-made fibres are subject to high degrees of static loading. One well-known, visual and perceptible sign of discharge is e.g. with artificial materials the so-called electrical spark.
