Processing rice is very simple. You pre-clean the paddy to expel the straw and grass, then you send it through the husker to remove the abrasive husk and then through a stone whitener to remove the bran. You pass your processed rice through a length grader to expel the broken rice, lastly you run it through a colour sorter to remove of the stained kernels.

In the event that this is the manner by which you are as of now running your rice plant or possibly how you are considering to assemble your first rice factory, you have a decent knowledge of machines, however you're missing a very important step. A water polisher can take your product from a normal looking processed kernel to a high calibre perfectly sheened product which will carry higher value to your end customer. A stone whitener uses a "scratching" motion to wear the bran off of your brown rice. That scratching gets most of the bran off, but also leaves scuff marks and scratches in your kernel, which houses additional bran that the stone whitener couldn't fully remove. A water polisher smooths out the kernel surface and takes that additional bran off.
