DURUM WHEAT ABSTRACT

INTRODUCTION

Food antioxidants, such as phenolic compounds, play a significant role for the defence of human body against oxidative stress, increasing the body natural resistance to oxidative damage. Cereals are known as a major source of a wide range of phenolic acids (PAs). In the wheat kernels the distribution of antioxidant components is not homogeneous and their concentration is greater in the external layers. This study was focused on the optimization of analytical methods used for PAs extraction and identification in order to evaluate content and profile of these compounds in durum wheat and derived products obtained either by conventional or innovative technological processes. The traditional milling process provides the removal of external layers and peripheral tissues determining a drastic reduction of PAs. The use of whole-grain products or the application of technological processes (i.e. debranning) could be a useful tool for preserving the PAs natural pool present in durum wheat.

The growing interest for general health amelioration of chronic diseases and prevention of the effects of aging directed consumer’s interest towards phytonutrients and mainly natural antioxidants derived from plants. Antioxidants may be defined as compounds that inhibit or delay the oxidation of other molecules by inhibiting the initiation or propagation of oxidizing chain reactions. Antioxidants are important both for food preservation and for the defence of human body against the oxidative stress. Oxidative stress seems to result from an imbalance in the body between oxidants and antioxidants due to a decrease in natural cell antioxidant capacity or an increase in the amount or overproduction of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in the organism. Consumption of food rich in antioxidants may lead to scavenging of free radicals and ROS that could otherwise cause oxidative damage to biomolecules such as lipids, proteins and nucleic acids. Plants are known to contain a wide range of chemical classes with antioxidant activity. Great attention has been traditionally devoted to dietary antioxidants such as ascorbic acid, carotenoids, tocopherols, but also other food antioxidants, such as phenolic compounds, play a significant role increasing the human body natural resistance to oxidative damage (Liyana-Pathirana and Shahidi, 2006). The antioxidant activities of phenolic compounds is mainly attributed to their redox properties, which allow them to act as reducing agents, hydrogen donors and quenchers of singlet oxygen. Increased consumption of plant-derived phenolics has been related to a reduced risk of degen-

Phenolic acids (PAs), generally recognized as potent antioxidants, are secondary metabolites widely distributed in the plants and in term of their dominance they are second only to flavonoids. Cereals are known as a major source of a wide range of PAs belonging to hydroxycinnamic acids and hydroxybenzoic acids de-

rivatives; these include ferulic, p-coumaric, p-hydroxybenzoic, vanillic and syringic acids. Naturally occurring antioxidants such as ferulic acid have been recognized as important therapeutic agents against neurovegetative disorders such as Alzheimer disease (Kanski et al., 2002) where the oxidative stress plays a crucial role: ferulic acid serves as potent inhibitor for hydroxyl and peroxyl radicals thereby acting against

oxidative stress. Adom et al. (2003) reported that ferulic acid was the major phenolic acid in wheat; Zhou et al. (2004) reported that approximately 57-77% of total phenolics in wheat were composed of ferulic acid, thus suggesting the use of ferulic acid as marker of wheat antioxidants. In the wheat kernels the distribution of antioxidant components is not homogeneous and their concentration is greater in the external layers (fig. 1). Wheat grains are traditionally processed for the preparation of the most wheat-based food products and mostly refined flour/semolina is used. The milling process of wheat includes the removal of external layers; peripheral tissues such as germ and envelopes are generally eliminated in the so-called bran fraction as by-products. It has been demonstrated that the bran fraction alone has a higher antioxidant activity than that of other milling fractions. Zhou et al. (2004) pointed out that antioxidants, including PAs, are concentrated in the aleurone layer of the wheat bran; Mateo Anson et al. (2008) showed that the higher the proportion of aleurone material in wheat fractions, the higher the antioxidant capacity observed for these fractions. Moreover, numerous epidemiological studies investigated the potential health benefits of consuming more wholegrain foods and the relative data indicated that increased consumption of whole grains may reduce the incidence of chronic diseases and certain types of cancer. Such beneficial effects have been ascribed to the presence of dietary fiber and a variety of phytochemicals such as PAs. PAs occur in wheat as soluble free and conjugated forms and as insoluble bound forms. The determination of the total amount of PAs is currently performed by spectropho-


DURUM WHEAT tometric methods based on the Folin-Ciocalteau reaction using ferulic acid as the standard (Hirawan et al., 2010), whereas reversed phase high performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) is the technique of choice for the identification and quantification of individual PAs, using a variety of RP columns eluted by increasing the concentration of either acetonitrile or methanol in the mobile phase containing an acidic additive (Hirawan et al., 2010; Wang et al., 2013). The qualitative and quantitative analysis by RPHPLC is performed after the extraction of soluble free and conjugated PAs and insoluble bound forms of PAs, which are currently extracted in separated fractions by a combination of multistep liquid-liquid extraction, cleanup procedures and alkaline hydrolysis of either the supernatant or the residue from the initial liquid-liquid extraction (Li et al., 2008) In this work PAs content and profile were studied in different milling fractions of durum wheat and derived products and compared with wholemeal products. A no traditional technological approach such as debranning was also studied in order to enhance the value of the resulting bran fraction as excellent source of raw material with potential application as nutraceuticals and functional food ingredients.

MATERIAL AND METHODS Samples A widespread Italian durum wheat cultivar (Duilio) was considered for this study. Durum wheat grains were ground by conventional milling process on a pilot plant with three breaking and three sizing rolls (BĂźh-

ler MLU 202) in order to obtain semolina and by-products. Semolina was processed by experimental press (Namad) to obtain spaghetti dried at low temperature by an experimental drier (Afrem, France). Grains were also processed by a micronization pilot plant (Separ Micro-System) to obtain a wholemeal used to produce pasta with the same technological conditions adopted for the traditional one. Durum wheat grains of cv Duilio were also subjected to the debranning process by using a laboratory machine with an abrasive stone element; debranning process was performed on kernels after hydration with 3% water and a resting time of 15 minutes, because the pre-hydration made the tegument layers less crumbly, allowing a more regular and homogeneous removal (Bottega et al., 2009). For debranning, 12 subsequent time intervals, each of 15 seconds, were applied. Identification and quantification of PAs by RP-HPLC The extraction of PAs (soluble free and conjugated and insoluble bound forms) was performed in duplicate according to the procedure proposed by Li et al. (2008) with minor modifications (fig. 2). Separation, identification and quantification of PAs were carried out by RP-HPLC using a Shimadzu LC-10AVP system consisting of an SCL-10AVP system controller, two LC-10ADsolvent delivery units, a SPD-M10A specVP trophotometric photodiode array (PDA) detector, a CTO-10ASVP column oven, a DGU-14A on-line vacuum membrane degasser, and a Rheodyne (Cotati, CA, Usa) Model 8125 semi-micro injection valve with a 5 ÂľL sample loop. Instrument control and data acquisition and processing were performed

DURUM WHEAT by the Shimadzu Class VP 5.6 HPLC data system on a Pentium II 400 PC compatible computer. A Polaris C18A column (150 x 2.0 mm ID, 5 µm; Varian Inc. Lake Forest, CA) with a C18 (30 x 2 mm, 5 µm) guard cartridge column was employed at controlled temperature of 30°±1°C. PAs were separated by a multi-segments gradient of increasing concentration of acetonitrile in water acidified with 2.0% (v/v) formic acid, at a flow rate of 0.2 mL/min. UV-Vis spectra were recorded in the 210-600 nm range, and the chromatograms were acquired at 254, 280, and 320 nm. The identification of individual analytes was performed on the basis of their retention times and collected UV spectra, compared with those of authentic standard solutions. Stock solutions of each standard compound were prepared by dissolving weighted amounts of each standard in 80% (v/v) methanol-water mixture. These solutions were individually injected into the HPLC column and eluted using the above gradient elution programs to determining their chromatographic retention times and collecting UV spectra by the PDA detector. The identified PAs were quantified by the internal standard method using five points regression graphs of the UV absorption data collected at the wavelength of maximum absorbance of each identified PA, which were determined by the PDA spectra acquired in the wavelength range 210-600 nm. Calibration graphs of PA standards were constructed using authentic standards that had undergone the same extraction procedure to ensure that losses due to the extraction were accounted for. All samples were analyzed in triplicate, and the concentrations of individual PAs were expressed in milligrams per kilogram (mg/kg) of dry matter (dm).

RESULTS AND DISCUSSION Preliminary experiments were devoted to optimize the methods employed for the extraction of PAs from the different milling fractions of durum wheat and for their subsequent identification and quantification by RP-HPLC, using a narrow bore C-18 column operated under gradient elution mode with the starting eluent and the gradient former consisting of water and acetonitrile, respectively. Formic acid was incorporated at concentration of 2% (v/v) into the starting eluent to control the protonic equilibrium at acidic pH value, in order to keep carboxyl and hydroxyl groups of the analytes in their protonated form. This in order to avoid peak broadening caused by the simultaneous presence of protonated and ionized forms of the PAs and to improve their hydrophobic interactions with the C-18 stationary phase. The developed method allowed the complete separation, in less than 40 min, of all PAs potentially present in our samples. The separation by RP-HPLC of 3,5-dichloro-4-hydroxybenzoic acid (employed as the internal standard) and the soluble conjugated PAs p-hydroxybenzoic acid, vanillic acid, syringic acid, p-coumaric acid, sinapic acid and ferulic acid extracted from wholemeal is shown in fig. 3. In order to obtain accurate and reliable analytical data, the developed RP-HPLC method was validated according to the International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) guidelines (ICH 1997) and applied for the identification and quantification of the individual PAs extracted as soluble free and conjugated forms and as insoluble bound forms from different milling fractions and from traditional and wholemeal dried pasta. The content of the individual soluble free and conjugated

DURUM WHEAT PAs and of the insoluble bound PAs extracted from the wholemeal sample is reported in tab. 1. As expected from previous findings (Li et al., 2008; Hirawan et al., 2010), PAs are mainly present in the bound form followed by conjugated form, whereas free form is present in a very small amount. Ferulic acid is the most abundant in the bound form, while in the conjugated form sinapic acid prevails. Results of the quantitative analysis of soluble free and conjugated PAs and of insoluble bound PAs on the three milling fractions and the two dried pasta samples show that the content of each PA in the three different forms differs significantly among milling fractions and type of dried pasta, as it is shown in fig. 4, which displays the observed differences in the PAs contents as the percentage change of each PA compared to its content in the wholemeal; for this reason not all PAs are reported but only those revealed and quantified in the wholemeal. Changes in the content of PAs were compared with the amounts present in the wholemeal, representing the reference material against which to compare the modifications induced by technological processes. As regard the milling process, natural compounds present in the kernel are concentrated in the bran, whereas in semolina are gener-

ally present in lower amount. Pasta-making process does not affect significantly the PAs content of semolina and pasta produced by wholemeal shows a level similar or slightly higher than that initially present in the kernel. Further RP-HPLC analyses were carried out to identify and quantify insoluble bound PAs in samples extracted from the different fractions obtained by debranning wheat grain at subsequent time intervals, as reported in the Experimental sections. Results of these analyses are reported in fig. 5 as histograms depicting the content of ferulic acid in the fractions corresponding to the different peripheral layers of wheat grain subjected to the debranning process. Ferulic acid represents a good marker of the aleurone layer in the kernel and therefore could be a useful index of the progressive removal of peripheral parts; as expected, this acid is the predominant one and maintains quite similar levels until sixth debranning time, after that a regular and consistent decrease is observed. Fig. 6 displays the percentage distributions of PAs in selected debranning fractions. Ferulic acid was the most abundant PA in all fractions, accounting for 91% of the total PAs. The contents of the other five PAs varied proportionally to that of fer-

(2002) who found that the concentration in phenolic acids was at least 40 times higher in aleurone layer than in the starchy endosperm but, despite this large difference, the proportion of each compounds was roughly similar in the two botanical tissues.

CONCLUSIONS The whole kernels of durum wheat represent a good source of antioxidants, specifically of phenolic acids. Along durum wheat chain, the traditional milling process is the

Whole grains and bran are a natural source of PAs and more generally of bioactive compounds, but in the most pheripheral layers also different contaminants (i.e. mycotoxins, heavy metals, etc.) can be present, so debranning process can be successfully applied in order to obtain derived products rich in bioactive compounds and jointly of suitable hygienicsanitary quality. Bran fraction obtained by debranning process may be also used as a value-added product in the preparation of functional food ingredients and/or for enrichment of semolina/flour for positive effects on human health.

gluten-free bread ABSTRACT

INTRODUCTION

Gluten-free baked products contain a high amount of starch that it is mostly responsible for their rapid loss of softness during ageing, mainly caused by starch retrogradation. The aim of this research was to evaluate the mechanical and rheological properties of gels obtained from corn starch (CS), rice flour (RF) and their mixtures. Furthermore, the capability of waxy rice flour (WRF) and rice bran (RB) to reduce starch retrogradation, when added at different ratios (25 and 50%), was investigated in order to increase the shelf-life of starch-containing foods. Gels were prepared by means of the Brabender MicroVisco-Amylograph (MVA) and their rheological properties, during a 7 days storage period at 4°C, were evaluated both through compression test (TA-HDplus Texture Analyzer) and strain and frequency sweep test (Physica MCR 300 Rheometer). During ageing, gels stiffness increased at different extents and rates. Samples containing CS showed the highest consistency. On the contrary, WRF originated very weak gels and resulted more effective than RB in delaying gel hardening. The presence of WRF or RB, both at 25 and 50%, strongly reduced G’ values of the mixtures containing CS or RF. For the same gels, G’ curves overlapped up to 7 days storage, indicating a very slow hardening kinetic. The results obtained in this research thus highlighted the possibility to enhance the shelflife of gluten-free baked products, by including WRF and/or RB among the other ingredients.

Gluten-free baked products contain a large amount of starch, whose behaviour during process and storage greatly influences the final products quality and shelf-life. As reported by Lii et al. (1995), the formation of a gel or a paste is one of the main events that controls the texture and quality of starchcontaining foods. Gel structure depends on many factors, such as starch source and concentration, amounts and types of amylose and amylopectin leached out from starch granules, interactions among amylose, amylopectin and granules, besides heating and cooling conditions in terms of treatment temperature, length and rate (Mariotti et al., 2005). In particular, starch retrogradation is the major phenomenon involved in bread staling. Different actions can be taken to delay bread staling such as the use of enzymes (maltogenic α-amylase or lipase) or the addition of monoglycerides that limit starch granule swelling and rupturing during baking (Delcour and Hoseney, 2010). Also fibres may play a positive effect on quality parameters related to bread staling, such as crumb softness and springiness (Wang et al., 2002), thanks to the increase of the water absorption of the dough. Bread staling is also affected by the amount of protein and starch in the formulation (Kim and D’Appolonia, 1977) and by the total or partial replacement of regular wheat flour with waxy flours (Park and Baik, 2007; Morita et al., 2002; Hung et al., 2007). The rheological properties provided by the starchy matrix to the final product appear to be of great importance in gluten-free (GF) breadmaking. Up to now, instruments such as the Rapid Visco Analyzer and the Brabender Viscoamylograph have been used as stand-

gluten-free bread ard analytical tools to assess the pasting characteristics of starch and flour suspensions during heating and cooling cycles (Shuey and Tipples, 1980; Tsai et al., 1997; Mariotti et al., 2009); whereas dynamic oscillatory rheometry has been frequently applied to study the viscoelastic properties of starch gels (Lii et al., 1995; Hsu et al., 2000). The aim of this research was to evaluate the rheological properties of gels obtained from corn starch, rice flour and their mixtures, and the capability of waxy rice flour and rice bran to reduce starch retrogradation, when added at different ratios to the starchy matrix.

MATERIALS AND METHODS In this study, corn starch (CS) and rice flour (RF) were chosen as principal ingredients, being the main responsible for the texture of many GF products. Waxy rice flour (WRF) and rice bran (RB) were selected as potential alternative and/or additional raw materials to reduce GF bread staling. CS was provided by Roquette Frères (Lestrem, France); RF, WRF and RB by BeneoRemy NV (Leuven-Wijgmaal, Belgium). Seven different mixtures (50CS-50RF; 50CS-50WRF; 50CS-50RB; 50RF-50WRF; 50RF-50RB; 50CS-25RF-25WRF; 50CS25RF-25RB) were prepared (Hobart mixer; 5 min mixing at 25°C). Ratios among the different flours were chosen to simulate the proportions existing among the different ingredients in the most common GF bread formulations. The moisture content of the raw materials was determined according to the Official Standard Method AACC 44-15A (2000). The total nitrogen content was evaluated accord-

ing to the Official Standard Method AOAC 920.87 (1999), and the protein content was calculated adopting 5.95 as conversion factor. The amount of total starch (TS) was determined using the Total Starch Assay Kit (Megazyme International Ireland Ltd., Bray Business Park, Bray, Co. Wicklow, Ireland). All these determinations were made at least in duplicate (n≥2). The amylose content was assessed by the UNI ISO 6647 Method (1991) and expressed as the proportion by weight of amylose (g/100 g db). The pasting properties of the raw materials and their mixtures were evaluated (n≥6) with a Brabender Micro-Visco-Amylograph (MVA; Brabender OHG, Duisburg, Germany): 12 g sample/100 mL H2O (on a 14% moisture basis); speed: 250 min-1; measuring range: 300 cm•gf; temperature increase/decrease: 3°C/min; temperature profile: heating from 30° up to 95°C, holding at 95°C for 30 min, cooling from 95° to 30°C. The following indices were considered: pasting temperature (PT, °C; temperature at which an initial increase in viscosity occurs), peak viscosity (PV, Brabender Units, BU; maximum paste viscosity achieved during the heating cycle), final viscosity (FV, BU; paste viscosity achieved at the end of the cooling cycle), and setback (SB, BU; index of the viscosity increase during cooling, corresponding to the difference between FV and the minimum viscosity reached after the holding period at 95°C). The rheological properties of the gels (obtained from the MVA as previously reported) were evaluated after 30 min at 25°C (t0) and after 1 (t1), 2 (t2), 3 (t3), 4 (t4), and 7 (t7) days of storage at 4°C. Before each trial, gels were conditioned at 25°C for 30 min. For texture analysis, 18 g of each gel were submitted to compression with a cylindri-


gluten-free bread cal probe (diameter: 3.5 cm) at a crosshead speed of 1 mm/s (10N load cell), up to 30% deformation by using a TA-HDplus Texture Analyzer (Stable Micro Systems, Surrey, UK). Gel stiffness was calculated by the slope of the first linear trait of the compression curve, as an index of gel hardness. At least five replicates (n≥5) were performed for each sample and for each storage time. For dynamic rheological measurements, a Physica MCR300 Rheometer (Anton Paar GmbH, Graz, Austria) equipped with a corrugated parallel plate system (diameter: 2.5 cm), set at a gap of 1 mm, was used. After loading the sample, the excess of gel was trimmed off and the sample was allowed to rest for 5 min at 25°C, before starting the tests: strain sweep test (1Hz, 0.01-300% strain), frequency sweep test (1% strain, 0.110Hz frequency). Storage modulus (G’) and viscous modulus (G’’) of gels were measured. All the measurements were performed in triplicate (n=3). Analysis of variance (ANOVA) was performed using the Least Significant Differences (LSD) test to compare sample means; differences were considered significant at P<0.05 (Statgraphic Plus for Windows 5.1).

RESULTS AND DISCUSSION Pasting properties of the different raw materials and mixtures The viscoamylographic indices of the different raw materials and mixtures, whose composition is shown in table 1, are reported in fig. 1. CS and RF presented the highest pasting viscosity (PV) values, and CS showed the highest potential retrogradation ability – underlined by the gel set back values (SB, 877±47BU) – indicating their tendency to form strong gels. On the contrary, WRF, characterized by an amylose content of 0.7 g/100 g db, exhibited a lower pasting temperature if compared with RF (65° and 74°C, respectively) and the lowest increase of viscosity during the cooling phase (SB, 370±11BU). The presence of WRF in the mixtures thus determined a SB reduction, dependent not only on the total starch amount of the samples but also on the properties of the raw material used. Rice bran – presenting the lowest total starch content and the highest level of fibre – did not form a gel in the experimental conditions adopted during the MVA test. Thus,

gluten-free bread when it was used in combination with CS or RF and embedded into the starchy matrix, an important decrease of viscosity was evidenced, due to its physical interference during gel networking. Gel hardness by compression tests As evidenced in fig. 2, CS gel evaluated 30 min after production showed the highest consistency (1.20 N/mm), while WRF gel exhibited the lowest one (0.08 N/mm). A significant correlation was found between gel stiffness and viscoamylographic final viscosity (r=0.771, P<0.01), indicating that the gels formed into the MVA maintained their properties even when evaluated in different shear conditions. With regards to gel ageing, the consistency of the samples increased at different extents and rates. After 7 days of storage, CS gel was still characterized by the highest stiffness (3.34±0.11 N/mm), and the same was observed for 50CS-50RF gel among the binary mixtures (3.33±0.03 N/mm). CS and RF coupling, actually very frequent in the commercial blends used for gluten-free bread production, originated gels highly given to hardening. When ternary mixtures were tested (50CS-25RF-25WRF and 50CS-25RF-25RB), WRF resulted more effective than RB in delaying gel hardening; in fact, the presence of WRF in the blend determined lower stiffness increase during ageing in comparison to RB, although RB was more effective against gel hardening at t0. Gel stiffness, evaluated after 7 days of storage, was positively correlated (r=0.806; P<0.05) with the viscoamylographic SB values, indicating how this parameter could usefully predict the retrogradation behaviour of starchy systems during storage. As retrogradation is one of the main events in-

fluencing bread staling, the monitoring of the viscoamylographic properties of the ingredients (raw materials and mixtures) used in the gluten-free recipes could represent a convenient tool for improving bread formulation. Viscoelastic properties of gels Small amplitude oscillatory measurements provide simultaneous information on the elastic (G’, storage modulus) and viscous (G’’, loss modulus) nature of the materials. In the strain sweep curves, at lower level of strain, G’ exceeded G’’, suggesting a solidlike behaviour of the gels. The heating/ cooling treatments occurring during gel formation inside the viscoamylograph, in fact, have induced the networking of the gelatinized starch. At higher strains, a cross-over point between G’ and G’’ was observed at every storage time for samples WRF, 50RF50WRF and 50RF-50RB, whereas for the other gels, characterized by slower retrogradation kinetics, the same phenomena was evidenced only after some days of storage, when gels increased their consistency and fractured under the higher strains applied (data not shown). The highest G’ values were registered for CS and 50CS-50RF gels, while WRF originated very weak gels. The addition of WRF both at 25% (data not shown) or 50% concentration strongly reduced G’ values of the mixtures containing CS or RF. The same effect was observed also when RB was added to the mixture, both at 25% (data not shown) and 50%. These data, even if recorded under different testing conditions, are in agreement with those obtained from the compression test. In fact, a significant correlation was found between fresh made gel stiffness and

gluten-free bread G’ (r=0.925, P<0.0001) evaluated at 1Hz, suggesting that both these parameters can be used to monitor gel characteristics. Considering the G’ curves obtained from the

frequency sweep tests at the different ageing times (fig. 3), it was evident how CS, RF and 50CS-50RF curves shifted progressively towards higher values, while WRF curves were


gluten-free bread virtually overlapped, indicating once again the maintenance of constant characteristics over time.

CONCLUSIONS The high amount of starch included in gluten-free baked products is mostly responsible for their quality decay, mainly due to a rapid loss of crumb softness. As highlighted in this study, CS and RF coupling, very frequent in commercial blends for gluten-free bread production, originated gels characterized by high values of stiffness and G’, but highly subjected to hardening, as demonstrated by the sharp increase of this parameter after 7 days of storage. On the contrary, WRF (that contains a limited amount of amylose) and RB (due to its low starch content and its high level of fiber) originated very weak gels and resulted very effective in delaying gel hardening. WRF, in particular, came out to be more effective than RB. Both WRF and RB, at 25 and 50% level of substitution, however, strongly reduced stiffness and G’ values of the mixtures containing CS or RF and, for the same gels, G’ curves overlapped up to seven days, indicating very slow hardening kinetics. Therefore, WRF and RB seem to be potentially effective in enhancing the shelflife of GF baked products when included in the starchy matrix. The next ongoing step is the identification of the proper amount of WRF and/or RB to be included in GF bread formulations, in order to allow both an appropriate workability of the dough – that may result too sticky, as reported by Morita et al. (2002) and by Yi et al. (2009) – and the maintenance of the softness of the product during a prolonged storage, thus assuring a good consumer acceptability.

MYCOTOXINS ABSTRACT The Istituto Zooprofilattico of Puglia and Basilicata is an accredited analytical laboratory for major mycotoxins (Article 12, EC Regulation 882/2004). During 2010, analytical controls for mycotoxins were started on durum and common wheat imported through the Italian Sea, Air and Frontier Health Offices of Bari and Manfredonia. In the mycotoxins analysis, >80% of the tested samples were contaminated by detectable levels of the mycotoxins, with 5% with an aflatoxin B1 content over the EC Regulations limit, and 1.7% with a deoxynilvalenol content over the EC Regulations limit. These samples were also analysed for quality traits, which showed: 25% of all of the samples had test weights <80 kg; 4.2% had protein content <13%; 40% had gluten index <66; 30% had yellow index b* <24; about 50% had flour strength W between 100 and 200; and almost 40% had a tenacity to extensibility (P/L) ratio >1.5.

INTRODUCTION In recent years, increasing attention has been paid to food safety, including that of cereals, which are one of the food matrices at highest risk of contamination by mycotoxins. According to data obtained from monitoring studies conducted worldwide and to results of toxicological studies, maximum limits for mycotoxin concentrations in cereals and cereal-based foods were established in the European Commission (EC) Regulations 1881/2006 and 1126/2007. For instance, for the mycotoxin deoxynivalenol, the tolerable daily intake is 1 Âľg/kg body weight (EC Scientific Committee for Food, 856/2005). In human, mycotoxins have immunosuppressive, organotoxic, teratogenic and carcinogenic effects (Pestka and Smolinski, 2005; Gallo et al., 2010). From the data provided by the Food and Agricultural Organisation of the United Nations, about 25% of crops around the world are contaminated (Caloni and Nebbia, 2009). Recent studies have shown a considerable increase in the levels of deoxynivalenol and its conjugate deoxynivalenol-3-glucoside in malt and beer that has occurred through unprocessed barley (Kostelanska et al., 2009). Baking processes generally reduce the levels of deoxynivalenol in bread (Bretz et al., 2006). However, recently studies have shown that when improver enzyme mixtures are used in bakeries as a dough ingredient, there can be increases of up to 145% of this deoxynivalenol-3-glucoside conjugated form in the fermented dough, and up to about a 120% increase in the bread (Kostelanska et al., 2011). The Italian pasta-making industry produces pasta with durum wheat semolina that is obtained by blending the best quality national

Tecnica Molitoria International - Yearly issue 2013 - 77


MYCOTOXINS and foreign durum wheat semolina. The quality of pasta, as is currently understood, is determined mainly by the technological characteristics of the semolina, which must have adequate amounts of gluten and carotenoids to guarantee a product with excellent nutritional and cooking qualities. The quantity and quality of gluten are the basis in the making of pasta according to high organoleptic standards. The presence of an adequate amount of carotenoids is crucial for the colour of the pasta. The aim of the present study was to report the results of a survey on safety and quality characteristics of common and durum wheat imported into Italy during 2010 and in the first two months of 2011.

MATERIALS AND METHODS Sample collection and milling The grain in the holds of ships or trucks was sampled by the technical staff of the Italian Sea, Air and Frontier Health Offices (Uffici di SanitĂ Marittima, Aerea e di Frontiera; USMAF) of Bari and Manfredonia, in accordance with the procedures established by EC Regulation 401/2006. The grain lots of around 1,500 tons were divided into sub-lots of 500 tons, which then form a number of incremental samples of about 100 tons, from which three laboratory samples of 10 kg are taken. Generally dynamic sampling was used, with the laboratory samples collected at different times from the moving grain on conveyor belts, or using automatic samplers. This procedure ensures more uniform distribution of mycotoxins in the samples, as these are generally shown a patchy distribution (Caloni and Nebbia, 2009).

Extraction and quantification of mycotoxins The procedures specified by manufacturers of the relevant immunoassay kits were used for the extraction of the mycotoxins from these wheat samples. According to the validity of tests defined by EC Decision 2002/657/EC and EC Reg. 401/2006, kits were used for the following mycotoxins: aflatoxin B1 (Tecna; code Ma314), deoxynivalenol (R-Biopharm; code 5906), ochratoxin A (R-Biopharm; code R1311), and zearalenone (R-Biopharm; code R1401). The ELISA competitive enzyme immunoassays for quantitative analysis of these mycotoxins were developed according to the manufacturer instructions. The results of the analysis were obtained photometrically at a wavelength of 450 nm, using a microplate reader (Anthos HT-2). The concentrations given by the assays were then corrected by a factor that takes into account the recovery of the method for the sample preparation from the original cereal, as calculated during the validation. These enzyme immunoassay kits have been validated according to EC Decision 2002/657/EC, relating to the performance of analytical methods and the interpretation of the results. These kits are also periodically checked to ensure their correct operation by the Food Analysis Performance Assessment Scheme (FAPAS) and the Associazione Italiana Allevatori (AIA). Grain quality The protein content and test weights were determined directly on the clean grain samples using an Infratec grain analyser (Foss Electric; 1241). Prior to milling, the clean grain of the du-


MYCOTOXINS rum wheat samples (800 g) were tempered to 16.5% humidity for 18 h; they were then milled with a laboratory mill that separates the semolina from the bran and shorts (Bona, Monza, Italy). The common wheat flour samples were obtained after grain samples had been moistened at 14% humidity for 18 h, and then also milled with a laboratory mill that separates the flour from the bran and shorts (Brabender TYPE 27900 for common wheat; Belotti Strumenti S.r.l., Milan, Italy). The extraction rates for the grain samples ranged from 55 to 60% for both the semolina and the flour. The dry gluten content (GC) and the gluten index (GI) were determined in triplicate on the semolina, according to the approved methods of the Ente Italiano di Unificazione (UNI) 10689 (UNI, 1997a) and 10690 (UNI, 1997b), respectively, using the Glutomatic 2200 system (Perten, Sweden). For determination of GC, the wet gluten was dried with a Glutorx at 150°C for 5 min, and left to cool for 3 min. The scores applied to the GI were: <30, weak gluten quality; 30-60, sufficient gluten quality; 60-80 very good gluten quality; >80 excellent gluten quality (approved method UNI 10940; UNI, 1997c). The rheological characteristics of the semolina samples were determined as the deformation energy, or the flour strength, defined as the W index, and the ratio of resistance to extension or tenacity (P), to extensibility (L). These were evaluated using a Chopin alveograph (Chopin, Cedex France), according to the approved method UNI 10453 (UNI, 1995). The yellow index (YI) was used to define the semolina colour, using a chromameter (ChromaMeter CR-200 Minolta, Tokyo, Japan) equipped with a xenon arc lamp. The chromameter was calibrated on a standard

white tile of L* = 97.34, a* = -0.53 and b* = 2.39 (CIE 1976), with the International Commission on Illumination (CIE) illuminant D65. Each measure was performed in triplicate. Statistical analysis The parameters considered for mycotoxin validation according to EC Decision 2002/657/ EC, were: specificity, b-error checking, precision and robustness, using statistical tests for the calculation of variance (ANOVA test), Fisher’s tests and Students’ t-tests. All of the positive samples in the ELISA screening were then confirmed through a high performance liquid chromatography method, which showed superimposable analytical data (De Pace et al., 2009; De Pace et al., 2010). All of the qualitative data were replicated three times, and the mean values and standard deviation (±SD) are reported here.

RESULTS AND DISCUSSION Mycotoxin contamination Fig. 1 shows an overview of the continents of origin of the imported cereals. According to a survey conducted during 1998 by Fares et al. (1999), for the non-EU countries, Canada is the leading exporter of cereals to Italy, followed by eastern European countries, and finally Australia. Table 1 gives the levels of aflatoxin B1, deoxynivalenol, zearalenone and ochratoxin A found in the full 60 samples that were analysed, along with the limits according to EC Regulations 1881/2006 and 1127/2007 and the limits of the detection methods applied (<0.05, <92.5, <35, and <1.25 µg/kg,

MYCOTOXINS respectively). In all, 5.0% of these samples was over the EC Regulation limit for aflatoxin B1 (2 µg/kg); these were the durum wheat samples from Turkey (1 sample) and Moldova (2 samples) (Table 1, Fig. 2). Also, 1.7% of the samples was over the EC Regulation limit for deoxynivalenol (1,750 µg/kg), which was one of the common wheat samples from Croatia (Table 1, Fig. 2). Thus the

remaining 93.3% of the samples was below the legal limits set by the EC Regulations 1881/2006 and 1127/2007 for all of these mycotoxins. Thus, although overall the assessments carried out showed that the 6.7% of the analysed samples was over the EC Regulations, it can also be noted that the remaining samples examined were not completely free from mycotoxins, according to the detection limits of the analyses. These lower levels should, however, not pose significant risk for human health in terms of studies on the tolerable daily intakes. As also indicated in Table 1, the maximum acceptable levels for these mycotoxins are: aflatoxin B1, 2.0 µg/kg (for all cereals); de-

82 - Tecnica Molitoria International - Yearly issue 2013

oxynivalenol, 1,750 µg/kg (for unprocessed wheat); zearalenone, 100 µg/kg (for unprocessed wheat); and ochratoxin A, 5.0 µg/kg (for unprocessed cereals). Weather conditions affect the fungal growth on plants. In North America, the weather was quite favourable to crop growth, while North-Eastern Europe was characterised by a climate with frequent rainfall and fluctuating temperatures that enhanced the Fusarium attack and resulted in yield reductions. Our data thus reflect the climatic conditions that occurred in the origin areas of the contaminated samples (Turkey, Moldova, Croatia). Indeed, Aureli et al. (2009) showed the importance of some of the factors that can influence deoxynivalenol contamination of crops on samples of Italian origin. The factors that were of particular significance were the year, the geographical distribution of the fields, and the varietal response. Also among these main factors, the climate is the only really imponderable factor, as its effects on the crops cannot be predicted, at least not through mathematical forecasting models. The mycotoxin levels reported in the present study show lower concentrations with respect to those reported during 2010 in the Italian Network of Varietal Tests on Cereals (Aureli et al., 2010). In this other investigation that was carried out in Italy, the authors found that for durum wheat samples, the average values of deoxynivalenol contamination were around 3,767, 1,874 and 115 ppb for Northern, Central and Southern Italy, respectively. The climatic conditions in Italy during 2010 were characterized by frequent rainfall and fluctuating temperatures, especially in the North. The European Union (EU) legislation, as defined by the various regulations, provide a


MYCOTOXINS very comprehensive regulatory package. In the USA, the regulations on mycotoxins allow five-fold greater total aflatoxin concentrations in all foods, while for deoxynivalenol, the USA limits for grain and its derivatives is lower than in the EU. Canadian legislation allows the highest maximum for deoxynivalenol on common wheat (2,000 µg/kg). In all, >80% of the samples analysed showed contamination by at least one of these mycotoxins, although these levels were not necessarily over those stated in the EC regulations. However, this does indicate that these mycotoxins must be checked with attention, particularly if these grains are intended for the whole-foods market. Indeed, as this market is also showing a significant increase, these cereals must be continually monitored, for the safety of the consumer. Quality evaluation Together with the colour, the protein and gluten contents represent the basic parameters of quality assessment of durum wheat (Autran et al., 1986). Table 2 shows the results of our analysis of the durum wheat samples under study, which also includes four common wheat samples from Croatia (3 samples) and Turkey (1 sample). The number of durum wheat samples (30) was lower than that of the samples analysed for mycotoxins (60), as several samples from the same vessel were combined. Fig. 3 shows an overview of the durum wheat grain quality classes for gluten index, protein content, test weight, alveographic indices (W and P/L), and yellow index. The measure of test weight provides a good estimation of the milling yield and also indicates the ‘history’ of a crop; namely, it indicates whether the climate course was favour-

able for crop growing or not. This quality characteristic of the samples was good, and if we consider a test weight based on ≥80 kg, <25% of the samples (5 of 21 measured) was under 80 kg (Fig. 3). The amount of protein in wheat is considered as a good indicator of the quality of the durum wheat pasta, and a content of ≥13% is generally accepted as a good threshold value for the pasta industry. The protein content in these durum wheat samples ranged from 10.4 to >15% (maximum, 16.7%), with only 1 sample (from Turkey; at 10.4% protein content) of the 24 measured (4.2%) below the accepted level of 13%. Therefore, according to the protein content and the test weighs of the durum wheat samples analysed, these durum wheat fall into a good class of quality, as indicated by the UNI 10709 rule. Fares et al. (1999) reported that most durum wheat samples imported into Italy (about 70%) have a high protein content (>13%, with peaks of 16%). Indeed, these authors suggested that durum wheat imports with high protein content were necessary at that time, to compensate for the Italian national durum wheat production of 1998, which was characterized by an overall low protein content, of 12.8%. The other tests that were performed on the durum wheat semolina confirmed the good characteristics found for these grains (Fig. 3). The gluten index is a measure of gluten strength and therefore provides a good estimation of protein quality. Just <60% of the durum wheat samples had gluten index values >66 (maximum 100 here; Table 2), which includes both the good and excellent quality classes (Fig. 3). The colour (yellow index), as measured by b*, shows that >50% of these durum wheat produced semolina with an in-

MYCOTOXINS dex >27, 16.7% between 24 and 27, with the remaining 30.0% at <24. The high b* values found in the semolina samples are significant for enhancing the yellow amber colour of the pasta products. The characteristics assessed according to the alveograph indices show that just >50% of the durum wheat samples had flour strengths (W) between 100 and 200, while just <40% had a P/L ratio over 1.5; these results are in agreement with the data for the gluten index, and they confirm that the quality of the durum wheat semolina samples was suitable for high quality pasta production. The common wheat samples from Croatia (Table 2) were much too tenacious (P/L, >2.3) even if the values of W were >200. Comparing the present data to the survey conducted in 1988 (Fares et al., 1999), the overall quality of the imported durum wheat has improved considerably, especially if we consider the yellow index, and also the quality of the gluten (Table 2, Fig. 3, b* and GI). Therefore the durum wheat imports have reached very high quality standards that are significantly better than those in the 1988 survey (Fares et al., 1999). As seen for 1998 (Fares et al., 1999), these imports can be considered as technical tools to improve the performance of the national durum wheat production.

CONCLUSIONS The examinations that are carried out on imported products are closely related to economic aspects. In recent years, there has been a decrease in the quantity of grain entering the ports of Bari and Manfredonia, and consequently there has been a decrease in the number of samples analysed. In particular, the recent global economic crisis has

86 - Tecnica Molitoria International - Yearly issue 2013

had serious repercussions on these activities. The overall technological quality of imported cereals in the year 2010 and early 2011 was fair, although some samples were of very poor quality. This proportion of poor quality samples included the greatest number of positive reports for mycotoxins (6.7%). The remaining samples (>80%) were below the maximum mycotoxin levels allowed by EC Regulations 1881/2006 and 1127/2007, and although these were not completely free from mycotoxins, they should not pose a risk for human health in reference to the studies on tolerable daily intakes. However we must consider that these grains are the raw materials, and so they undergo further physical treatments, such as pearling and milling, which can also promote reductions in the mycotoxin residues. It is important to continue the surveillance activities always, to ensure the protection of consumer health against the risks that can derive from mycotoxin contamination. The data reported in the present study also show that durum wheat imports have reached relatively high quality standards, with the samples analysed in the present study significantly better than those analysed in a 1988 survey (Fares et al., 1999).

Cereal cleaning, drying & storage AUTOMATIC management of VENTILATION for stored grain The main aim of ventilation is to cool the grain and keep it at a sufficiently low temperature in order to ensure good preservation. Very often the problem of ventilating stored grain in silos and storehouses is underestimated or considered in a superficial and inaccurate manner. Studies carried out have indicated that biological activity in stored grain duplicates with every 5째C that the temperature

92 - Tecnica Molitoria International - Yearly issue 2013

increases. This activity generates heat, consequently provoking the deterioration of the quality of the grain. The efficiency of the ventilation is based on the homogeneity of the air distribution. One of the most common mistakes is to activate the ventilation for a period and then estimate that the whole mass of grain has reached the desired temperature. Measuring the temperature of the grain is the only effi-


Cereal cleaning, drying & storage cient way of ensuring that the ventilation process has been carried out thoroughly. Not controlling the ventilation can lead to a loss of weight in the grain mass due to over-drying or even loss of the product caused by rotting due to the increase in humidity, in addition to the consumption of electrical energy in excess. Know-how and continuous monitoring of the temperature of the stored grain and the conditions of the air in the surrounding environment can be applied to back up a control system of the functioning of the ventilators, programmed to ventilate only in ideal periods of humidity in relation to the ambient air. The Intelli Data Monitor Appliance of Fornasier Tiziano has been designed specifically to manage the ventilation of dried grain in an intelligent, automatic and economical way inside silos or storehouses, with a view to improving preservation of the product and optimizing energy consumption. This system replaces the operator, with regard to the assessment of the ideal time-span for activating or stopping the ventilation system, thus avoiding unnecessary loss of energy and the risk of over-drying the grain or allowing it to become damp again. On the basis of the data collected on the state of the grain and on the environmental conditions, by means of monitoring probes, the ideal time-span for ventilation can be set. The system continuously measures both the temperature and the ambient air humidity, of the storage bin and also of the storehouse for the exhaust air, and according to the parameters set, in comparison with the conservation charts, it can assess the necessity to ventilate, humidify or de-humidify by activating the opportune machinery

so as to keep the stored grain in the best conditions of preservation while avoiding superfluous waste of energy and unnecessary or unfavourable ventilation. In the field of grain preservation, several different systems have been developed for controlling the temperature of the product (temperature probes, cooling fans, refrigerators, etc.) and the Intelli Data Monitor system is able to interface with each single apparatus that is present in the plant. The main elements necessary for interacting with this system are: load-bearing or manual thermometer probes, probes for temperature and humidity levels of ambient air, temperature and humidity probes for exhaust air from ventilation, analog cards for recording analogical data, cards for interfacing with machinery for ventilation, aspiration, refrigeration. All these components may be installed on each apparatus or machine and interconnected via cable or wireless connection. The heart of the system is the PLC which, by means of the supervisory software installed on a Personal Computer, memorizes data, elaborates it and activates commands. All events are memorized on file so as to be able to obtain traceability. This software is highly customizable and may be adapted to a variety of demands as the protocols of communication are already implemented with the most important manufacturers of thermometer probes and machinery for ventilation and refrigeration. Furthermore, it is also possible via Internet to active the remote control system of supervision.

Cereal cleaning, drying & storage CLEANING and DRYING machines for maize and cereals Zanin was founded in 1956 by Giuseppe and Arcangelo Zanin and was originally dedicated to the construction of equipment and dryers for the processing of silkworm, and later on to the construction of complete plants for the drying, processing, and stocking of cereals. In this dimension the company, now managed by Oscar and Nicodemo Zanin, reached a leading position in the early nineties, with a high prestige on the international market for energy-saving and innovative machines and on the interior market, thanks to a constant commitment over the years and continuous research and innovation on materials. Nowadays Zanin manufactures a wide range of machines for all types of agro-industrial-systems, guaranteeing an efficient and complete service.

The PSC cleaner (Zanin).

Concerning the cleaning and screening of cereal and other products, it designs and manufactures various types of machines which are divided into four categories: precleaning, cleaning, calibration, combine. The pre-cleaning is important for the transpiration of cereals and prevents the emergence of mold and insects. Models of cleaners may be a rotating drum with or without aspiration system, models of cleaners only for aspiration, models sieves with movement connecting rod, models with vibrating table. Each model is chosen according to the type of cleaning and type of grain to be cleaned or classified. In the field of cereal drying, Zanin designs and manufactures various types of machines, boasting over 30% energy saving, studied with particular attention

Cereal cleaning, drying & storage being paid to the quality of drying and energy saving, which are divided into six categories, that is the series ERCL, CR, C, Fixdry, Minidry, and Mobile. More and more countries require an efficient dryer in terms of quality of the final product, while taking into account the climate of harvest and processing, the environmental regulations and the maximum level of automation provided. During drying processing the cereal, especially maize, should not be subject to fast changes of temperature which cause thermal stress and the lowering movement inside the machine must be homogeneous and without shocks. As the problem of aflatoxins is more and more frequent, the passage from harvest to storage of the cereal is becoming increasingly important. Today it is essential to have machinery able to deal with the mold present in some corn. Zanin carries out tests on products sent by companies, tests at a macroscopic level (UV lamp) to see the amount of toxins and immune-chromatographic tests with immediate release of the tests done in the Zanin laboratory. Analyzing the results of the tests, it has been understood that the product should be cleaned, first with a system of screens or sieves, then with a ventilation system of dust washing, and finally, in case of values not yet returned, with an optical system separation which works on differences in intensity or color. Therefore, Zanin advises to dry the product carefully avoiding further cracks in the corn, using dryers with a slow cooling system, such as for instance the ERCL models. For a good cleaning system and to remove dirt, broken corn and corn with dust, a drum cleaner combined with aspiration

system (such as PPR/COMBI + SA models) or alternatively a sieve cleaner (PSC models) are suggested. (Zanin F.lli - Viale delle Industrie 1 - 31032 Casale sul Sile - TV - Italy - Tel. +39 0422 785444 - Fax +39 0422 785805 - www. zanin-italia.com)

Milling equipment Modern STONE MILL plants for grinding whole flour It is common knowledge that wholemeal and demi-wholemeal flours preserve all the vitamins, mineral salts and fibres contained in the grain. This is the reason why Partisani chose to dedicate itself to wholemeal grinding using stone mills. Partisani has been operating in the milling industry for over 70 years and the experience gained in this field has given the possibility, starting from tradition, to improve the milling machinery according to the modern technological development. All manufactured stone mills are in accordance with the construction and safety European regulations. Stone mill grinding plants are more and more requested by industrials, who want to produce the real whole wheat flour grinding by stones. Thanks to its knowhow, Partisani has been able to design very simple and versatile milling plants which can be completed with other machines such as cereals cleaner, damper, sieving centrifugal sifter, silos, etc. All of this taking up a very small space: max height 4.5 metres, inside an area of few square meters. It is also possible to join more stone mills, connected one to the other, so to allow to remarkably increase the output of flours, brown short and bran (for instance 5 stone mills each having a 400 kg/hour output, all together allowing a 2,000 kg/hour output). In the past mill stones had to be dressed by hand, while modern stones mounted

in Partissani stone mills are made only of natural materials which assure a long life and, above all, do not need to be dressed. The only necessary maintenance is to remake the channel after 700/1,000 grinded product tons. Last but not least, such stone mills can be coupled to an industrial plant, using the cereal coming from the cleaning area or creating an independent plant for the production of organic flours.

Milling equipment the supply and distribution of the product on the grinding rolls has been designed to be precise and easy to use. The possibility of moving the external parts in extruded aluminum, makes it easy to check the quantity of product falling on the grinding and the front grinding rolls. The supply chamber is broad and has a trapezium shape with round edges. It is made of extruded aluminium and its cavities do not allow the formation of steam. Even the screen, which can be removed to allow the cleaning of the chamber, is made of an antistatic plastic material and this allows the operator to check the product. Inside, there are a couple of infrared transition sensors (transmitter/receiver) which measure the product level inside the chamber with multiple reading points. The electrical equipment of the machine adapts the supply rolls speed according to the level found. The micrometric adjustment system of the feeding and distribution of the product on the grinding rolls is precise and easy to use. Cleaning devices for grinding rolls which work through a slow engagement and disengagement of the grinding rolls, have a lift system which allows to set and unset these devices. This structure was designed to consider this machinery as a module made up of a set of rolls, so that there can be different combinations allowing an improvement in the use of the plant space. The grinding rolls are made of centrifugal cast iron, with high energization, diameters of 250 and 300 mm and lengths of 1,000, 1,250 and 1,500 mm. Only one belt connects the front fast roll with the back slow roll through a tension pulley set on an eccentric system. Nowadays the advantages of the belt transmission, instead of gear transmission, are well-known. The grinding rolls

104 - Tecnica Molitoria International - Yearly issue 2013

are set on an adjustable bearing with a big double row of rollers, with conical hole. To extract the bearing, the fast locking hydraulic system at the end of the shaft is used. The cooling of the grinding rollers is an optional that, if required, can be applied to the fast roller. In this case, the rollers shafts are perforated and at their ends two rotating joints are applied, to insert and recover the cooling liquid. The standard operator interface, called Synth 4500, is realized with microprocessor technology. This solution allows to change the work parameters and display the alarms and the system status, and it is installed at the two sides of the machinery. The optional HMI operator interface is made with a touch screen operator panel Siemens KTP. This interface is directly connected to a programmable logic controller Siemens series 1200. The operator interface is installed at the two sides of the machinery, creating a small network between HMI and PLC. The system and function parameters which includes speed of the feeding roll, input grinding engine, product level, status, and alarms, are easily available to the operator thanks to the graphic and alphanumeric interfaces. In the standard version, it is possible to interface the PLC with the supervisor through an I/O link. Different modes of remote communication are available as an option. Golfetto Sangati also produces the rollermill with layered rollers, which is commonly called SY 8 rolls. The functional description is the same as the one of the 4 rolls machinery.

SANITATION PLANT for animal FEED manufacturing With the aim to ensure the absence of pathogens through a cleaning modern technique, La Meccanica, thanks to an experience gained in over more than fifty years, guarantees the highest technological quality of its plants. This company located in Cittadella (Padua, Italy), numbers about 50 employees and an annual turnover of over 14 million Euros, and is specialized in technology for the animal feed industry and processing of biomasses. During the production of feed it must be ensured that there is a correct hygiene during manufacturing, storage and transport, as well as the absence of pathogens. To achieve this goal the product has to go through sanitation, a process that guarantees the quality of the feed in both the technical and the physiological-nutritional dimension, and La Meccanica carries out the sanitation with hydrothermal treatment and extended conditioning. The product is pre-heated with steam in a heat conditioner, then passed to the SNF sterilizer, a double-walled container

Feed mill equipment heated with diathermic oil, where the preheated flour is kept for the time necessary to remove all components of pathogens which are sensitive to heat. Thanks to the speed control, the residence time and the high thermal inertia of the mass of oil, the system allows a constant and exact control of the parameters of the heat treatment. All parts that come into contact with raw materials, including shafts and paddles of the thermic conditioner, shaft of the steriliser, connections and mixers, are made of stainless steel to eliminate corrosion and minimize the risk of product contamina-

tion. The steriliser ensures a crossing time from 3 to 4 minutes and a constant temperature up to 90°C with a tolerance of +/1°C and a first-in-first-out product path. The conditioning can increase the productivity of the press by up to 15% and also improves the Pellet Durability Index (PDI). In this way, three objectives are achieved: the elimination of salmonella, starch gelatinization, and sanitizing of the product.

Mills Service considered as best solution a metal structure building with RCC floors where the higher mechanical loads were applied. During the project study considerable attention was dedicated to the sanitation aspects of the facility, usually lacking in steel buildings. To better improve hygienic conditions in compliance with HACCP standards, thus safeguarding the quality of the products, all necessary measures have been taken into consideration. One of such sanitation measures being the covering of all elements in direct contact with dust, which are points of potential contamination (steel columns, joining points between walls and floors, etc.). The conveyance of all products is primarily carried out with positive pressure systems with the exception of a chain conveyor, installed on a cog system, specifically de-

Pasta & couscous production

MULTIPURPOSE lines for different types of PASTA, COUSCOUS, SNACK pellets In the last years Tecalit R&D department has developed new models and plant solutions to answer the demand of the market and of pasta producers who want to modernize their plants. In fact, the global market is developing the demand of speciality pasta such as gluten-free and couscous which is usually commercialized with traditional pasta. In the past years Tecalit has already manufactured and supplied production lines for gluten-free pasta and now it has developed the new TEC-CC couscous line, comprehensive of models with production capacities of 600 kg/h and 1,200 kg/h. This new range is characterized by the simplicity and sturdiness of the construction of the various machines, as well as the high engineering of the technical and technological parts to supply a plant which is efficient and easy to manage. Tecalit has also developed a range of lines for the production of different pasta shapes using the same plant. In addition to the Combined line first introduced in

1995, that produces short-cut and nest shape pasta, Tecalit has now designed the new Multipurpose line for the production of all types of pasta in one line: short-cut, long-cut, nest shape and couscous. The Multipurpose line has been developed for dynamic food industries which want to produce traditional products and at the same time are willing to enter new market segments that have growing importance. Thanks to its versatility, it is also proposed as an excellent solution for new pasta plants or for food plants in developing markets. The advantage of this model is the possibility to increase the production capacity by adding new in line dryers in later steps. Everything is foreseen from the beginning in the feasibility study phase in order to give the customer the possibility to grow in successive steps using the existing machines instead of the need to revolutionize the pasta plant or to totally change the machines. Concerning the core business of Tecalit, that is the manufacturing of dry pasta

Automatic CUTTING GROUPS and STAMPING machines for PASTA and SNACKS Niccolai Trafile, in order to meet the international market demand has further improved and strengthened its design and production processes to ensure a high quality product and short delivery time. Not only in the field of dies, in which the company is specialized after more than a century of activity, but also in the design and manufacture of die washing machines, automatic cutting groups for short pasta and penne (angle cut) for all types of presses or lines, stamping machines and stamping dies for pasta “Bologna” production and all accessories for the maintenance of the dies. “Advanced technology at the service of quality” is the mission always pursued by Niccolai Trafile which has always taken into consideration what could be done to make it easier and safer for operators working inside the factory in the daily operations of production and quality control when designing and producing its machines. The ultimate goal being not only to provide high-quality dies and machines, but also to assist customers carefully both before and after the sale, maintaining a con-

tinuous working relationship to combine the service and the ability to listen to customer suggestions. The revolving head cutting group of the Cartrapen Family for the production of short pasta, pastina and penne, are now a concept of satisfaction for Niccolai Trafile because it allows to fulfill the requirement of every food production plant with any type of press or line (either pasta or snacks). The considerable demand for the Presstrapen cutting unit that uses the columns of the press as hooking and support, thus avoiding any encumbrance on the ground and in front of the shaker, has led to the optimization of a machine which is better performing for customized requirements. This cutting group adapts itself, due to its flexibility, to the productions of all types of short pasta and penne, as well as the sheared pasta in combination with one or more stamping machines. Cutting groups, series Presstrapen, Presstrapen GT and Presstrapen DS, are designed to fit on request, as they can be integrated with all the presses and production lines, besides being easily positioned

Pasta & couscous production with one or more stamping machine under the same press, avoiding to move the machines when production passes from short pasta to bow-tie production (and vice-versa). Production with the stamping machines series Sfoglia/600, 1000 and 1300, according to the production capacity of each plant of pasta or snacks, in terms of operative simplicity is now comparable to that of short goods, keeping a constant level of shape quality during the whole production cycle even if working at high speed. The Sfoglia/1300 proposes an automatic adjustment system of stamping die at each change of stamping die/shape. The calibration of the sheet, even very thick, is guaranteed by a pair of chromed and rectified solid rollers, 340 mm in diameter for the Sfoglia/1300 (diam. 220 mm for the Sfoglia/1000 and diam. 180 mm for the Sfoglia/600). Left and right thickness have an independent regulation and are constantly displayed to the hundredth part on the control panel. Furthermore, the punching zone is illuminated to allow the maximum visibility during the formation of the bow-ties. The stamping machines have a new graphical colour touch-screen or black/white control panel that allows easy control and management of all production parameters and can also store recipes with the production parameters of the different shapes. All speeds of calibrating rollers, of feed dough roller stamping die and of shredding rollers are easy to manage in an independent way thanks to the use of inverters and drivers. Product quality was a prime consideration in designing the ma-

chine, hence the adoption of integrated automatic systems for controlling sheet width, sheet presence and thickness and of intrinsical safety systems allowing operator access to the stamping die area for removal of the stamped pasta. These machines use stamping dies without central interruption, therefore the stamping die is not divided in two parts as it usually is. High production capacity and very low percentage of waste are the strong points of this machine. (Niccolai Trafile - Via Cardarelli 19 - Z.I.

Fresh pasta production Applying technologies and experience gained over the years by constructing industrial and semi-industrial automatic lines, Zindo provides an opportunity for small laboratories to increase the shelf life of their products, maintaining the artisan quality to expand their markets. In fact Pasta Lab contains forming machines able to realize most of the pasta forms, being able to switch production of regional pasta, double sheet ravioli of all shapes and extruded short and long pasta, in addition to all pasta shapes obtained from sheet dough. The real heart of Pasta Lab is the Pastodryer machine with dual function, which is able to produce a pasteurized pasta with the right humidity to be packaged in ATM, especially useful for stuffed pasta. The laboratory is completed by a work table for weighing and packaging the pasta, giving the quality of the craft product and the expiry date which allows marketing on a larger scale. Designed to be modular, functional and

compact, the Pasta Lab is offered by an opportunity to enter and succeed in the sector of fresh pasta with a minimum investment. The ease of use and the production flexibility of a pasta shape rather than another make it possible to produce small batches for stock rationalization based on sales, especially important for stuffed pasta. Also suitable for big companies, especially abroad, Pasta Lab is also used as a pilot plant for testing and market analysis before investing on lines dedicated to specific products. To summarize, the advantages that the Pasta Lab boasts are: reduced space requirement; all types and shapes of pasta can be obtained; the modern design allows machining with a view; extremely easy use and sanitation; does not require any flue; moderate and easily financeable investment.

DRY and FRESH PASTA, COUSCOUS and READY MEAL production lines Storci was founded in 1991, yet its history can be traced back over six decades when back in 1949 a very young Anzio Storci started out as a workshop apprentice in Barilla, and its core business immediately focused on building machines for pasta manufacturing. Some years ago a merger was made with a larger company operating in the same sector, Fava from Cento, near Ferrara. Storci produces the presses which

Fava uses to build the biggest industrial lines in the world for dry pasta production. While it builds systems for all other types of production under its own name: special dry pasta, fresh pasta, ready meals, glutenfree pasta and couscous. The company now employs more than 90 people, has a turnover of 24 million Euros a year and is growing all the time. Of the most important markets, the one

Tecnica Molitoria International - Yearly issue 2013 - 117


Fresh pasta production which is currently growing fastest is undoubtedly related to couscous production. Storci produces small couscous lines with outputs of up to 500 kg/h, while Fava produces lines with outputs from 1,200 to 3,000 kg/h for which Storci produces the machinery for the start of the line. Essential elements in the realization of a good product are: careful selection of the sieves so as to produce fine, medium and coarse grain couscous, depending on the customer needs; application of the Premix, a Storci exclusive in terms of innovation and trademark which guarantees the quality of the product giving it a deeper, richer shade of yellow and better firmness to the bite when cooked. Furthermore, the

conveyor belts inside the steam cooker are no longer made of steel and consequently the problem of black and burned grains sticking to the conveyor and becoming incorporated in the end product has been eliminated. Another market is that of fresh pasta. Storci fresh pasta lines have been designed to guarantee maximum quality and shelf-life for fresh pasta with a single pasteurization process. High temperature drying, freezing and double pasteurization systems are available for frozen or stabilized pasta. Thanks to the dough production technologies incorporated in the Premix, Beltmix and Bakmix systems, it is possible to obtain dough

120 - Tecnica Molitoria International - Yearly issue 2013


Fresh pasta production which maintains excellent firmness to the bite when cooked and a rich yellow colour, also by integrating them with vacuum technology. The Beltmix replaces the traditional shaft and blade mixing tank thanks to its pairing with the Premix pre-mixing unit and a patented slow-moving accumulation conveyor for the dough rest period. This mixing system marks a significant technological step forward for dried, fresh, egg and special ingredient (spinach, tomato, etc.) pasta. This technology improves the result, making it possible to obtain better quality pasta with a better colour and offers production management with more efficient product changeover (approximately 5 minutes), cleanliness and hygiene (cleaning operation can be performed ten times quicker than with traditional tanks of the same volume and production capacity). All this with energy savings ranging from ten to thirty times less consumption compared to traditional mixing tanks. Since the dough is not subjected to any kind of mechanical action, the Beltmix guarantees that the original properties of the raw materials are kept intact and optimizes the colour of the finished product which, in the absence of oxidation, remains brighter and more intense. Another growing market is the one of ready meals. The promotion of ready meal lines is stepping up, not only in Italy, which is still the reference market for Storici, but also in other countries such as the United States, France and Great Britain where the consumption of ready meals is already part of the modern day lifestyles. As lasagna is the most popular ready meal throughout the entire world,

Storci has reconfirmed its f lair for innovation by designing technical solutions for producing ready-to-serve lasagna which are partially and totally automated also in terms of tray packaging. Last but not least, Storci has its own internal laboratory certified by the Italian Ministry of Higher Education and Research and an experimentation area. A sector worth hundreds of thousands of Euros a year which makes it possible to work well on systems and follow up customer requests.

Raw material HANDLING plants up to FEEDING the processing machines 65 years experience in researching, designing and building innovative systems for various sectors of the food processing industry has placed the Brambati group among the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading players in the pasta, confectionary and baking industries, for various types of biscuit, prepacked cakes, snacks and baked goods etc. Brambati designs and builds specific plant for all kinds of production, starting from the premise that it is essential to consider the number of utilization points to be fed, mixing times, level of automation, dosages, etc. Raw materials are carefully inspected on arrival to check that they are in perfect condition, and product samples taken in accordance with the procedures put in place by each company. In both the pasta and the baked goods industries, each mixture differs from another in the quantities of the main ingredients it contains, thus making each production process different. Brambati specializes in supplying everything for handling raw materials up to feeding the various processing machines. Powdered raw materials such as flours

(white and wholemeal), sugar, icing sugar, starch, powdered milk, cocoa and dextrose, and liquids such as vegetable oils, glucose, inverted sugar, margarine, whole eggs, yolks, egg whites, honey and water are stored in special silos. The plant is constructed in AISI 304 and/or AISI 316 stainless steel in compliance with CE standards, the relative Atex Directive (equipment for use in explosive atmospheres) and the laws in force in the particular country of installation. Great attention is paid to reducing acoustic pollution with the use of appropriate insulation, to come within the values established by the relevant laws in force. The entire process is activated and controlled electronically, and monitoring system software is designed ad hoc to meet each customerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s particular needs and ensure maximum flexibility. Each stage of the process is managed remotely from the control room and the status of each utility monitored in real time. The application software chosen by Brambati engineers is the latest generation available on the mar-

Dosing, mixing & handling ket at the time of installation of the plant, and the best suited to the customerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s requirements. With these applications, stock times and quantities of stored raw materials can be visualized, reports printed, dosages set, motors remotely activated and controlled, faults and stoppages identified, and also maintenance times signalled where programmed. In the event of breakdowns, the on-line customer support service technicians can remotely check faults and/or alarms, carry out tests, re-start and do everything necessary to restore function. Brambati aims at supplying plants with cutting-edge technology to give maximum process flexibility and cut operator intervention to the minimum.

In keeping with the green, or ecological, economy model, Brambati has installed a 200 kWp photovoltaic system on the roof of its Codevilla plant. The approximately 220 MWh annual energy output of this fully integrated system means the Group is able to achieve significant goals with regard to energy saving, efficient use of resources and sustainable development. The same philosophy of optimization and efficiency of production cycles is also applied when machinery and systems for the food industry are designed and built, thus providing solutions that are consistent with customer requirements.

Dosing, mixing & handling HANDLING and CONVEYING equipment at the new Ghigi PASTA PLANT Ghigi is an Italian pasta factory, founded by Nicola Ghigi in 1870 in Morciano di Romagna, a small village near Rimini. The company reached its height in the 1950s, becoming number three in Italy after Barilla and Buitoni. While today the Ghigi brand is being revived thanks to the efforts of a farmer cooperative from the ForlĂŹ Cesena and Rimini territory. The new 100,000 square metres plant in the area of San Clemente (Rimini) produces durum wheat dry pasta of various shapes and recipes, also using ingredients such as tomato and spinach. Pastificio Ghigi has chosen Wamgroup as supplier partner for equipment worth a six figure sum in Euros. The supply includes forty-four TX stainless steel tubular screw conveyors, one CAU trough and one VEC vertical screw conveyor, three RSM manual bag openers, fourteen WamFlo dust collectors, one VHS pressure relief valve, six V.FS butterfly valves, thirteen BAex Bin Activators, thirty-two RVS blow-through rotary valves, seventeen ILTX level indicators, as well as five MVE electric motovibrators. All the equipment supplied is Atex-compliant. About 1,000 tonnes of semolina per silo are conveyed via pneumatic conveying lines before reaching the mixing process. In the ingredients area, bags are opened using RSM manual bag openers. The bags contain spinach flour and tomato flour. In the semolina department, there is one silo dedicated to organic pasta and another one for wholemeal pasta. From these two silos come the two types of semolina

used for the production of pasta on two separate lines, which supply approximately 2,000 pharmacies in the United States every year. The area is enclosed to avoid contamination of ingredients used for other

Dosing, mixing & handling products. In the same semolina area there is a screen used to select semolina. If the particle size is larger than 500 mμ it is discarded, because the macro-effects caused by improper size can lead to the presence of traces of white spots in the pasta. Daily production of the plant currently stands at about 150 tons, with the aim of reaching a 300 tons/day production rate in 2013. The maximum potential capacity of the plant is estimated to be 1,200 tons per day. A peculiarity of semolina is that it is abrasive and tends to pack in excess. In fact, a plus that has been appreciated by Pastifi-

cio Ghigi is related to the high functionality and reliability of the Wamgroup components, in particular as regards feed rates which perfectly match and stay constant. The plant, which was designed and installed by the OEM, Federico Giuliani, using Wamgroup components, boasts top performance and reliability ensured over time. The OEM decided to install, where possible, only Wamgroup products for each feature of the system.

Efficient and flexible STORAGE and HANDLING SYSTEMS for foods It is a fact that a perfect system is generated from the encounter of specific needs with timely responses. The ability to offer appropriate solutions at all levels lies in the quality of communication and technical skills. These allow for wise choices and better decisions, by having complete information, which is analyzed in detail, tailored to the wishes and needs of the end user. This is why the greatest risk of acquiring a new system is to underestimate the importance of every single component and of the accessory parts. In the past, systems were generated from a constant dialogue between

user and manufacturer. However, in recent years the commercialization of complete turnkey systems has prevailed increasingly and has now started to show its limits and has become a present-day issue. When, in a system, the quality of some of its parts is obtained by sacrificing the quality of other parts due to business reasons, the efficiency of the system will be that of its less efficient component. Reshaping the accessory parts and cutting the technical devices results in a poor functioning of the entire plant. The most common problems that occur are: bottlenecks, inhomogeneous performance/

Pest control

Real time and permanent RODENT MONITORING system Concerning rodent pest control, the food industry faces stringent standards, laws and regulations, albeit set by the food processing companies themselves or by their federations, by national governments or by supranational bodies, such as for the Eu directives. Therefore the need has arisen to enable the food producers to monitor the rodents in real time, to catch them alive and then to dispose of them quickly, without allowing them to harm or to infect the environment. Catching them alive is moreover of primary importance in some Eu countries such as Germany, where there are very strict laws on humane behavior towards animals. Indeed, they should be removed from their traps within a few hours after the catch, in order to ensure that they will not suffer by their imprisonment in a small and eventually hot environment. In order to fulfill such needs Simteligence has developed trapSIM, an integrated permanent rodent monitoring system that monitors the premises per-

132 - Tecnica Molitoria International - Yearly issue 2013

manently and in real time. It consists of live catch, or snap trap bait stations, which after catching the rodent, emit a signal to a central server in real time. The bait stations are operating completely independently, on a plug and play basis. The user, such as the technician of the pest control company, just needs to place it in any appropriate location. It communicates independently, without any need for wires. The autonomy of the bait stations is based on heavy duty lithium batteries, which have enough capacity to allow autonomous functioning for over ten years. When a rodent enters a bait station, a signal is instantly sent to a central server and shown in real time on a detailed digital map, on any computer, via a secured Internet connection. An sms and/ or an email message is sent in parallel to the userâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back office or smart phone and to the dedicated pest control operatives. Detailed reporting display historical trends of the infestations as well as the

Filling and bagging machines for FEED ADDITIVES In 1988, almost 25 years ago to be more precise, Concetti supplied a semi-automatic bag-filling machine to DSM Istituto Vitamine at their Segrate plant in Italy. Concetti hoped that the first installation would be a prelude to further orders but this was to be the beginning of a rather special story that would last to the present day and cover three continents, 10 factories and 17 lines in all. A demonstration of the benefits from working in collaboration with a customer, receiving inputs to constantly develop and improve machines. DSM Istituto Vitamine supplies feed additives which is one of the most difficult industries for bag filling suppliers. The range of additives to be handled can easily run into thousands of different products, mostly fine powders which are often very dusty. Some products are medicated, therefore any cross contamination is strictly forbidden. The bag weights can be almost any value between 5 and 25 Kg and the job runs are usually short with often just one or two pallets per order. The first

134 - Tecnica Molitoria International - Yearly issue 2013

Concetti installation in the Italian DSM company was highly satisfactory and a second semi-automatic machine quickly followed in 1990 for the same plant. The next installation came in 1994 at DSM Nutritional Products Hellas, in Greece, and this time DSM wanted to have a fully automatic bag placing system, the first one Concetti supplied to DSM which incorporated features that came out of their experience with the earlier plants. When in 1995 DSM at Heanor, Derbyshire in the UK, was looking for a solution to a complex situation Concetti proposed an innovative system that appealed to the customer. A further new line was supplied to DSM Iberia in Madrid, Spain in 2001. In 2002/2003 DSM opened two plants in Asia using more Concetti automatic lines, one in Korea and another in Chonbury, Thailand. More installations followed in Spain, in 2009 and 2010 and a plant in Pendergrass (Georgia, Usa) was opened in 2010 along with two further lines at another new factory at Naberezhnye Chelny, Russia. A new

Packaging automatic line was supplied to DSM Hellas in Greece to replace the unit installed originally in 1994 which, after more than 15 years of service has been carefully refurbished by Concetti and given a new lease of life in a DSM plant in Romania. Lastly, yet another automated line was supplied to DSM in Ames, Iowa, Usa. According to Concetti, the IGF series of bag filling and closing machines is ideal for these applications, having an extremely flexible design allowing changes to be incorporated without detracting from the basic concept or affecting reliability. Machines with different levels of automation have been installed, including manual bag handling, automatic bag placement, automatic bag filling and closing, single and double weighers up to fully automated palletiser lines using IGF 600 and IGF 900 models. Automatic systems operating on short job runs must be able to frequently change bag weights, sizes, layer patterns and so on. These machines are designed to be controlled and set-up by servomotors and therefore, with

the addition of a communications network, it is relatively easy to link the separate PLC devices. This means that programmes for a complete line can be changed swiftly from a single keyboard without needing any physical spanner adjustments by the operator. Concetti provided DSM with systems to cope with up to 5,000 different products. Features which allow rapid clean down between different products have also been incorporated into the design with a special PLC programme to control the cleaning sequence. This has helped to minimise downtime and increase productivity. Some DSM plants also employ Concetti robotic palletisers which are able to handle all the widely different bag shapes and sizes. The PS-3A with its four column arrangement allows bags to be overlapped and provides both side and top compression to give neat square pallets every time.

SPARE PARTS and ACCESSORIES for flour and feed mills Mazzolari Officine Meccaniche produces parts and accessories for mills and feed mills, perforated sheets and metallic wire nets. The range of products also includes hammers for mills, grids for mill grinding, consumable material and accessories for mills and all kind of grinding plants including the production of flour for human consumption, the production of livestock feed and supplements, up to non-food material production. The hammers for mills are manufactured in series by means of specific stateof-the-art machinery, using high quality steels which are subsequently subjected to an exclusive heat treatment process to gain surface hardness, high toughness, wear-resistance, and durability of use. The range of hammers is divided into 3 types which differ in quality, hardness and specific duration and are classified as: Normal, Medium, and High Performance. They come in pre-assembled sets, weighed and balanced for perfect balancing of the mill rotor, ready for assembly.

138 - Tecnica Molitoria International - Yearly issue 2013

The hammers are essentially beaters and are mounted on the appropriate pins directly on the mill rotor. These are integral with the body of the rotor and thanks to the centrifugal force and the peripheral speed of the rotor spins of the mill, they have the purpose of breaking the various products such as cereals, feed, etc. into small pieces. The particle size and size of products varies and depends on the chosen form of grinding grids. Mazzolari also manufactures perforated sheet, sieves and screens. These can be made of steel or in other specific materials according to the degree of wear and type of material to be grinded. They have, essentially, the function of a sieve, that is to regulate the particle size and the size of the product crushed and ground by the hammers. They regulate the passage of the product from the grinding chamber to the expulsion chamber of the product f lour. Put simply, the larger the holes of the grid, the larger particle size the produce will have and viceversa. These grids


Ancillary equipment are basically perforated plates and can have various uses such as in the cleaning process and sifting of raw materials.

Ancillary equipment AUTOMATIC continuous LUBRICATION in a flour milling plant Simalube lubricators, a worldwide patented product, are produced by Simatec, a Swiss company based in Wangen A. Aare. The Italian supplier Agrinova has successfully fitted them in a flour mill. The Molini di Voghera mill is located in Lombardy, province of Pavia, working 5 days a week, with an average production of 100 tons/ day. The products that are obtained from wheat processing are common wheat high quality flours for leavened products such as bread, breadsticks, pizza, and cakes. The mill cannot manage systems which break down and downtimes that have not been previously planned and carefully scheduled. Every machine downtime means a loss of quintals of production, and this is unacceptable for a company of this size. Molini di Voghera has been using simalube lubricators for years. Davide Rezzoli, production manager, and Raffaele Paciello, maintenance manager, believe that simalube is a great partner. Thanks to simalube, the useful life of supports has been increased and the breakage of bearings has been significantly reduced. In addition, the time required for lubrication, which was previously carried out with traditional

grease guns or other spring greasers, has been remarkably reduced. The most significant points where simalube lubricators are installed are: - Wheat silos, to grease the screw conveyors of dry wheat; - Inside the mill, to grease the screw conveyors of conditioned wheat. Screw conveyors are very long and they are provided with tens of greasing points; - Rolling mills, lubrication of supports; - Conveyors for flour transport in bulk, lubrication of supports. Inside a mill, lubrication can represent a problem, as the constant presence of dust can heavily pollute the lubrication points. Thanks to simalube, the air-tight sealing of lubrication points is guaranteed and contamination from dust is prevented. Furthermore, simalube lubricators have Atex certification and therefore can be used in mills and silos. All elements used must comply with very strict safety regulations in compliance with applications for the food industry. The simalube lubrificators are available with greases and oils for the food industry.

Ancillary equipment Two-way DIVERTING VALVES for pneumatic conveying lines The two-way diverting valves, VDM and VPT, have been specifically designed by Olocco to switch products in powder or granules (also abrasive) inside pneumatic conveying lines at low/medium/high pressure with pipes from DN50 to DN200 in size. Both are made of aluminium alloy to ensure maximum lightness and compatibility when it comes into contact with food. Nickel coating is available on request to increase resistance of the sliding surfaces against wear. The VPT valves are also available with the parts in contact with the product made of stainless steel. The VDM can be supplied with connecting pipes made with painted or stainless steel for all the main pipe diameters commonly used. Inner seals are fully compatible with food contact. The rotation is controlled by a pneumatic actuator with solenoids. The limit switches, which signal the deviation, are placed inside a sealed box. In case of unexpected encumbrances, it is possible to reverse the entire working unit very quickly thus allowing an extreme flexibility during the installation process. Versions that are in compliance with EC Directives Atex 94/9/ EC (1D internal, 2GD/3GD external) are also available on request. According to Olocco Engineering, the VDM valves have been one of the most appreciated products of its portfolio for many years and have distinguished themselves for ease of installation, reliability, durability and low maintenance costs. All these elements make them extremely suitable for pneu-

142 - Tecnica Molitoria International - Yearly issue 2013

matic conveying systems at low/medium pressure, especially in the milling industry. The drum diverting valves, VPT, have been subjected to a significant evolution in the last year. The work of Olocco engineers has been focused on the development of the main characteristics of the previous model by introducing a series of important changes: the double flow pipe, which means less wear and longer life-cycle of the machine; a reduced rotation angle of the drum, resulting in faster switching and less air consumption; the new seals, fully compatible with food contact, whose movement has been revised and made more precise for a better seal.

Supplier news MOLITECNICA SUD internationalization process In a climate of increasing global competition, in Italy as in many other European countries, there has been a massive number of companies entering the international market. Molitecnica Sud is not an exception to this process and in fact some years ago it started to look for new competitive opportunities in international markets by creating the brand ICE (Italian Cereal Engineering Srl), a trading company specifically addressed to the engineering sector that deals with the development of its sales abroad. This choice led to transformations including the change in the organizational, technical and financial structure, a different deployment of human resources and a homogenization of rules and behaviour at an international level, a standardization of operational procedures and methodologies and heterogeneity in the features of the finished products. In this context, Molitecnica Sud, which has

been producing milling plants for decades that are perfect in terms of quality, reliability, marketing, excellent service and price has joined with IBF in a strategic partnership. IBF is a company with a proven knowledge in the review and commercialization of new and second-hand machines for pasta factories, mills and industrial installations. Another step to support internationalization was achieved by Molitecnica Sud when it participated in Indagra 2012. This is the most complete event of its kind in Romania in the field of animal husbandry, agriculture and food industry and is the result of an effective collaboration and demonstration of confidence on the part of Map and Silotech, a partner company producing silos. In conclusion, internationalization is perceived by Molitecnica Sud as a normal evolutionary process becoming almost indispensable, which requires increasing commitment and resources to find new opportuni-

Akzo Nobel – a leading producer of emulsifiers for animal feed worldwide under the product brand Bredol – has enabled P.L.P. to develop systems of homogenization which guarantees an excellent liquid emulsion of oil, fat water and other liquids. This homogenization technology has been used throughout the years in feed mills to obtain a better dispersion of liquids, a more homogenous product with evident results on the production lines and to obtain a more efficient and higher quality of feed. This technology is adaptable for any type of dos-

ing system, in batch or in continuous, for the mixer, pelleting machines, extruders, etc. It has been proven to reduce the expenses of the feed production and improves the safety of the feed mill operators. P.L.P. Research and Development team is always active in raising the standards of its technology in accordance with the EEC standards and regulations. (P.L.P.

POWTECH forum for milling, dosing, weighing and agglomeration Size reduction, screening, mixing, conveying, dosing and granulating are essential manufacturing processes for almost all food production. Powtech, in the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg in N端rnberg (Germany) from 23-25 April 2013, once again, offers the most extensive overview of handling powders, granules and bulk solids. The exhibition, with more than 700 exhibitors from 26 countries, traditionally reflects the entire spectrum of mechanical processes for all sectors of the food and feed industry at the highest technological level. Ingredients in the form of powder or granules are the basis for almost all recipes in the food and feed industry. Among the key plant components in these processes, the dosing and weighing equipment stands out. This ensures reproducibility and thus constant quality from batch to batch. The dosing accuracy is also a profitability factor, e.g. as a measure of minimized overfilling or underfilling. Detailed knowledge of new developments and improvements in dosing and weighing equipment is therefore a decisive competitive factor especially for plant

operators in the food industry. Powtech offers specialists from the food industry 230 exhibitors which will present the latest solutions for dosing and weighing alone. On show, will be the whole spectrum from rotary feeders and cutting-edge volumetric and gravimetric dosing processes to individual load cells, as well as current developments in belt scales and bulk flow weighing machines. The importance of Powtech as the leading technology exhibition for the food and feed industry is also demonstrated by another technology segment present at this exhibition. More than 50 companies, including all the technology leaders such as Glatt and Hosokawa Bepex, will present the latest plant for agglomeration. Exhibitors and visitors at Powtech also benefit from the synergies resulting from the parallel TechnoPharm, the International trade fair for life science process technologies in the pharmaceutical, food and cosmetic sectors. Process specialists from the food and feed industry can take advantage of only one visit to be updated

International symposium on DURUM WHEAT Forty years ago, 144 scientists from 22 Countries met in Bari, Italy, to discuss for the first time advances in Genetics and Breeding of Durum Wheat, then considered a minor crop. Nowadays, whereas options and interest for its utilisation are increasing, factors challenging durum wheat production and its global sustainability remain unsolved. The range of products made from durum wheat is widening and their consumption increasing in regions where it is not cultivated and/or its products were not part of traditional consumption, urging the durum wheat community to reconsider the key characteristics needed to obtain suitable processing quality. At the same time, advances in science are providing better research options and breeding strategies that can be used in developing varieties able to provide a sustainable production under these scenarios. In this context, the Italian National Academy of Sciences known as “The Forty”, in partnership with several national and international organisations, is organising an International Symposium on the theme

154 - Tecnica Molitoria International - Yearly issue 2013

“Genetics and Breeding of Durum Wheat: Forty years later” to be held in May 27-30, 2013 in Rome, Italy. This meeting will provide an opportunity for the international durum wheat researchers community to gather and share results of research activities and progress made in the area of durum wheat genetics and breeding and discuss ways forward in addressing local, regional and international challenges to the sustainability of durum wheat production. The scientific programme is composed by 8 sessions related to: Origin and evolution of durum wheat; Genetic resources and durum wheat germplasm enhancement; Strategies and tools in durum wheat genetics and breeding; Field visit; Genetics and breeding for Durum wheat yield and sustainability; Genetics and Breeding for durum wheat diseases and pest resistance; Genetics and breeding for nutritional and technological quality; Perspectives in structural and functional genomics.
