Here is the most satisfactory Flour Redresser on the market. Any coarse
granules of link, strings, etc., are tailed off, but the real value to the
flour is in the thoro mixing, blending and aerating.
The Wolf Spiderless Round Reel has been designed to rebolt, blend, and aerate
flour, cereals, and similar products. From its construction it is admirable
adapted to this specific use. The inter-elevating buckets or propellers
assure a regular, even distribution of the stock. The absence of spiders
gives no chance for collecting lint or fibrous parts from the stock. There
is a long life to the cloth because it wears evenly over its entire length
and operates at low speed.
The slatted doors have an inside, high grade muslin lining which admits
air but prevents dust particles from entering into the stock. Thus the aeration
is a sanitary process.
The cloth is kept clean by a revolving brush from the reel shaft and is
adjustable from the outside. Thus any degree of wiping pressure may be acquired.
The reel proper is set in heavy beams supported by pillow blocks, either
plain or with ball bearings.
The Wolf Spiderless Round Reel is built with single or double conveyors.
When two conveyors are used, a series of tripping valves are placed the
entire length which makes it easy to turn the stock into either conveyor
at any point. The conveyors are fitted with reversible wood flights, spiral
steel conveyor, or Wolf Reversible steel flights.
The Wolf Spiderless Round Reel is built in the strongest manner - from the
best material obtainable, and by skilled workmen. A slow, smooth, light
running reel; durable, efficient, and requires so little attention yet producing
wonderfully satisfactory results. Its large capacity, free bolting, gentile
handling, good aeration and the small amount of power required, make this
reel a favorite as a flour redresser.
