Used to separate the grit from the germ in maize processing, the Beall degerminator is used in the production of over 90% of all the dry corn milled in the world. Originally patented in 1901, the degerminator is designed with a clearance adjustment between the rotor and the outer casing that allows the machine to be used with all kernel sizes. Germ and grit are discharged separately, resulting in less post-degermination sizing. Germ and fines are discharged through side screens and grit is discharged at the end of the machine. Beall, based in Decatur, Illinois, U.S., also produces a complete line of bucket elevators, chain drag conveyors and feeders.
