The ruggedness of a roller mill makes it the most expensive to purchase of the three types available. Grain is mashed between two serrated rollers which operate with the same action as a clothes wringer, so that the teeth on one roller fit the spate between the teeth on the other. One roller is usually fixed and the other can be moved to adjust the clearance between the two.
Roller mills are inexpensive to run and have a high capacity per horsepower because they reduce particles less than other mills. This mill's low power requirement does not provide it with the power to start with even a few kernels between the rollers—ii must be completely clean to work. Its function in preparing animal feed is merely to break the hard, outer seed coat of a grain to make digestion easier and more complete. This process provides an important advantage over hammer mills, in that it keeps the percentage of fines (small particles, powder, and dust) to a minimum, producing less waste.
Grain can be hulled, cracked, crushed, or ground with a roller mill; the better models are even capable of producing a fine flour. Special crushing rollers will handle any kind of grain, wet or dry, and can be used to chop green corn and barley for making silage.
