Tribolium confusum is an insect that usually infests starchy and powdery foods such as flour, semolina and bran. It is often found in mills and in food industries, where it attacks various kinds of products stored in silos and warehouses.
To solve this problem in the milling industries, entoleters are used.
These machines impact the flour, introduced at high speed, against an impeller made up of many steel rods. The impact thus generated breaks the eggs of any insect’s presence.
The entoleters have variable dimensions and characteristics proportionate to the processes and capacity of the plant.
In the food processing industry, they are usually positioned between storage silos and dosing points.
