Ferrell-Ross Flakemaster Flaking Mills combine superior high efficiency steam flaking performance, rugged reliability, and straightforward operation.  The standard in steam flaking, Ferrell-Ross Dual-Drive Flakemaster Flaking Mills evolved from decades of hands on experience and customer feedback to make Ferrell-Ross one of the most widely known manufacturers of flaking mills used by feed mills, food processors, and cereal processors worldwide.  Here is a brief overview of Ferrell-Ross Dual-Drive Flakemaster Flaker models offered:

Note that the first two digits in the model number indicates the nominal roll diameter.  The second set of two digits indicates the roll length.  For example, a Ferrell-Ross 18X36 Dual-Drive Flakemaster Flaking Mill has two 18-inch diameter X 36-inch long rolls in the machine.

Ferrell-Ross 18X36 Dual-Drive Flakemaster Flaking Mill.  With a properly sized Steam Chest, adequate steam conditioning, and a properly designed steam delivery system, the 18X36 Flakemaster Flaker will produce up to 7 short tons (14,000 lbs.) or about 6.3 metric-tons per hour of steam conditioned yellow corn flakes with a finished density of about 28 lbs. per bushel or 35 kg per hL.  The machine uses two (2) 30-HP 1800-RPM (~22 kW) electric motors for maximum throughput.

Ferrell-Ross 20X42 Dual-Drive Flakemaster Flaking Mill.  With a properly sized Steam Chest, adequate steam conditioning, and a properly designed steam delivery system, the 20X42 Flakemaster Flaker will produce up to 10 short tons (20,000 lbs.) or about metric-tons per hour of steam conditioned yellow corn flakes with a finished flake density of about 28 lbs. per bushel or 35 kg per hL.  The machine uses two (2) 40-HP 1800-RPM (~30 kW) electric motors for maximum throughput.

Ferrell-Ross 24X48 Dual-Drive Flakemaster Flaking Mill.  With a properly sized Steam Chest, adequate steam conditioning, and a properly designed steam delivery system, the 24X48 Flakemaster Flaker will produce up to 18 short tons (36,000 lbs.) or about 16.3 metric-tons per hour of steam conditioned yellow corn flakes with a finished flake density of about 28 lbs. per bushel or 35 kg per hL.  The machine uses two (2) 60-HP 1800-RPM (~45 kW) electric motors for maximum throughput.

Ferrell-Ross 24X56 Dual-Drive Flakemaster Flaking Mill.  With a properly sized Steam Chest, adequate steam conditioning, and a properly designed steam delivery system, the 24X56 Flakemaster Flaker will produce up to 24 short-tons (48,000 lbs.) or about 21.8 metric-tons per hour of steam conditioned yellow corn flakes with a finished flake density of about 28 lbs. per bushel or 35 kg per hL.  The machine uses two (2) 75-HP 1800-RPM (~55 kW) electric motors for maximum throughput.

Ferrell-Ross 32X68 Dual-Drive Flakemaster Flaking Mill.  With a properly sized Steam Chest, adequate steam conditioning, and a properly designed steam delivery system, the 32X68 Flakemaster Flaker will produce up to 45 short tons (90,000 lbs.) or about 40.8 metric-tons per hour of steam conditioned yellow corn flakes with a finished flake density of about 28 lbs. per bushel or 35 kg per hL.  The machine uses two (2) 125-HP 1200-RPM (~90 kW) electric motors for maximum throughput.
As a rule, you can expect approximately 10-20% more throughput from Ferrell-Ross Flaking Mills when steam flaking wheat and approximately 10-20% less when steam flaking grain sorghum (milo).

General Steam Requirements for Flaking Mills and Steam Chest grain conditioners:
You need a boiler rated at about 8-10 boiler horsepower (BoHP) per short-ton per hour of steam flaked yellow corn produced.  For example, the Ferrell-Ross 20X42 Dual-Drive Flakemaster Flaker is rated to produce about 10 short-tons (20,000 lbs.) per hour of steam flaked yellow corn.  So, you will need a 80-100 BoHP boiler for one 20X42 Flaker.
We recommend use of a Scotch Marine Firetube Boiler for steam flaking applications.  Deliver saturated steam to the steam supply header pipe at about 90-100 psi (~621-690 kPa).  Then reduce the steam pressure to about 40-50 psi (~276-345 kPa) before steam enters the Steam Chest’s Steam Distribution Manifold using a Steam Pressure Reducing Valve.  This method of delivering steam supplies hot saturated steam to penetrate the grain’s bran shell all the through to the germ and endosperm.
