Introducing our latest development, the new Zebra Mill machine driven by solar energy, by Solar Milling®.

This grinding system is a complete equipment designed by Solar Milling®. It offers an affordable system driven by solar energy to facilitate an appropriate cereal/food processing technology for the benefit of smallholder farms, rural communities, cooperatives or projects in places where there is not electrical grid.

This Solar Milling® equipment guarantees the possibility to obtain edible flour from different kind of dry grains (maize, millet, sorghum, wheat, barley, teff, rice…) and dry leaves, soybeans, pepper etc.  directly from the sun energy, so not electric or fuel bills are involved anymore.

The Zebra mill has no screen, so flour produced is 100% from whole grain. It means that all nutrients from cereals like fats, minerals and vitamins are present in the flour.  Check the related video below.

Due its innovative design, fineness and coarseness is achieved very easily through a side opening gate. 

Designed, manufactured and assembled in our premises in Barcelona. Spain.

Zebra mill is CE certified.


Our Zebra mill with a motor 2.2 kW has an output of more than 40 Kgs/h of very fine flour, out of raw unprocessed corn grains, when moisture is below 13%. Increase of moisture in grains, can reduce the output.

Pearl millet: production is more than 70 kgs/h of very fine flour.  

This is an output related to very fine flour (500 microns) with full extraction. For very coarse flour or crushed corn for poultry, delivery can reach roughly 210 kgs/ hour with our Zebra mill.

When fully driven by SOLAR ENERGY, the mill can run during 6 to 7 hours daily (without batteries) in favourable radiation conditions. So output can be stated at 240 kgs/day of very fine flour. See the doc below “Solar configuration options” to discover how to handle an extended use or cloudy days back up.
