To optimize your milling recovery rate, you first need to be able to measure it accurately. You can then make appropriate adjustments to your grain dryer, rice milling machine, and workflow based on this data.

However, making accurate measurements is challenging and time-consuming. Furthermore, even once you have correct data, it’s not always clear what adjustments should be made.

Our Solution

Yamamoto’s laboratory equipment eliminates these barriers, making it easy and accurate to measure the recovery rate.

We can also maximize the recovery rate by changing the settings of Yamamoto’s grain dryers and adjusting the rice milling machines according to the type of rice.

Our company has accumulated over a century of experience in rice production techniques and technology. Using this, we can support you by introducing equipment, calibrating it, and helping you to optimize all aspects of your production process.

Contact us to discuss your needs. We look forward to speaking with you.

Why Choose Yamamoto Laboratory Equipment?

Accurate Measurement

Each machine has its unique structure for accurate measurement of milling recovery rate and rice quality. Because of its accuracy, the FC2R-Y Testing Husker has been certified as testing equipment by the USDA, and the VP-32T Testing Whitener is widely used by the Japan Grain Inspection Association (Kokken) and other official organizations in Japan.

Easy and Quick Measurement

Yamamoto’s laboratory equipment has a compact design with a built-in motor that makes measurement easy and quick. In addition, measurement can be completed quickly because a small amount can be measured accurately.

Easy to Maintain

Maintenance after use is straightforward because the husk and rice bran discharged during measurement can be collected cleanly.
