The ideal choice of millstones has been unanimous one for quite some time: only stone millstones guarantee a grind where the grain is rolled, the germ is preserved and the transfer of the temperature of the flour obtained is limited.
Grinding with stone millstones enables maintenance of static electricity of the grain and enables one to obtain fluffy and light flour.
If there is any debate between millstones in reconstituted stone and millstones in cut stone or abrasives like emery, the SAMAP mill, after numerous trials, has chosen reconstituted stone:
• Use of stone like Naxos , the hardest natural corundum in Europe. Use of Naxos or other corundum enables us to guarantee increased millstone longevity. All other existing stone millstones, though effective, remain fragile or necessitate significant "recutting" interventions.
The resistance of our components enables us to put the millstone in contact with each other and to obtain the exceedingly fin grind that is the special feature of our mill.

• Reconstituted stone allows us the optimum choice of abrasive and binders, that are magnesia cements. In comparrison the tests that we performed with natural millstones generated grinding temperatures that were too high, due to binders that were too dense or there was an increased fragility , due to a friable binder and therefore rapid wear and tear.

• Creation of an amalgam rich in texures and differents sizes to obtain a millstones where the elements interlock with each other.
Rich with this mixture, the surface quality of our millstones always has small protrusions and depressions, making it possible to take hold of the grain an dthen grind it. It avoids creating a worn pathway and therefore wear on a particular area (where the grain passes through the same path).

• SAMAP Millstones integrates deep profiles and designs that one would not be able to obtain with a cut millstone.
The specific design of our millstones makes self-sharpenning possible in the course of mill usage, in fine grinding. Our millstones can also be honed, with the aid of special sand, after numerous year of use.
The notion of self-sharpening is important  because it ensures a constant regeneration of our millstones and maintains the same bite, after numerous years of usage. Natural stone that wears becomes smooth and will cause heating of the flour.
Our millstones can also be honed, with the aid of a special sand., after numerous year of use. This possibility is interesting when one grinds grain that contains foreign objects (small rocks or iron fragments).

• The deep thickness of our millstones makes it possible to anticipate grinding numerous tons of grain.

• Regulation of finesse is done using a high precision screw system, integrated in the millstone. It makes it possible to adapt to negligible but real wear on your millstone and to obtain year after year, the same unequalled finesse.
