Why an iceberg? A roller mill section can be viewed in a similar way to an iceberg! The iceberg helps illustrate the hidden costs of your milling section. The visible area represents the initial equipment purchase and routine service and maintenance.
Hidden beneath is the ever increasing & uncontrollable energy costs. As you’ll note, 90% of overall (machine) cost of ownership is in electricity consumption. Of that, 50% or more of the kWh can be removed from the equation using our KERS System©, increasing net profit margins by 10-20%. In a flour mill, the roller mill section accounts for approximately 65% of the electric bill. ; By reducing energy usage by 50%, it can equal a reduction of 10-15% of labour costs.
