Dry Polisher KAPIKA DP-3001

A dry method is used to remove bran that standard rice milling processes miss. Since no water is used, initial setup and ongoing running costs are lowered.

Product Features

Less residual bran on the surface of milled rice:

  1. Retains flavor longer
  2. Better appearance
  3. Easier to cook
  4. Less water pollution
  5. No water piping is required

High Milling Recovery Rate, Easy Operation

  • Durability: Consumable parts last approximately as long as those used in our vertical polisher.
  • Running Costs: Since it does not use water, initial and running costs are significantly reduced.
  • Usability: The operation is straightforward, just like a standard polisher.
  • Quality: The occurrence of broken rice during dry polishing is far lower than standard polishing methods.
  • Productivity: Overall, our customers report higher milled rice recovery rates.

Time-Savings & Cost Reduction

Compared to our previous model, the DP-3001 requires far less time for maintenance than its predecessors. Its open structure design allows easy cleaning of the bran inside the machine in under 10 minutes. Replacing resistance parts can be done in around 50 minutes (6 hours for DP-3000).

Cleaner & Shinier Rice

  • Without water or other materials, 0.8% of residual bran (ration by weight) is successfully removed.
  • By setting the length longer than the roll’s diameter, retention time is prolonged, thereby removing bran via the processing screen.
  • Residual bran is effectively released via suction and an exhaust fan.
  • The gap between screen and roll is narrow, approximately equivalent to two rice grains, enabling a higher degree of polishing.

For each type of rice, 1.5kg of rice was washed three times using a total of 3.5 liters of water.

Customer Stories

After installing our Dry Polisher KAPIKA, one of our customers in Vietnam reported that they could reduce running costs and produce rinse-free rice that sold for higher prices. Since the machine does not require water, no significant modifications to the plant were required.
