Our manufacturing process of corn cobs offers multiple lines of sizing operations so we can adapt to the specific needs of our customers. We welcome the opportunity to link our customers together from various industries to achieve their goals.
There are four componets of corn cobs.
Each component has characteristics which are beneficial in differing end use applications. Beeswing, Pith and Chaff are the most absorbent and lightweight components. The Woody Ring is the hardest part of the cob and works well as a carrier and an abrasive.
Best Cob LLC produces the highest quality of corn cobs throughout the industry.
How can we support this claim?
We store every corn cob inside buildings on cement floors. Keeping corn cobs stored inside provides protection from all of the elements, such as rain, snow and dirt. Our inventory is fresh and free from decomposition, rot, mold, mildew, dirt and sand, all of which can degrade and lower the quality of processed finished corn cob products.
Best Cob LLC processes our corn cobs to the highest degree of quality as well. We exceed your expectations by providing you with the highest quality processed corn cob available today. We are continuously improving our products by investing in cutting-edge research and new equipment.
Best Cob LLC buys clean dry corn cobs primarily from seed corn companies. During the months of September and October, the cobs are hauled to the company warehouse and are processed throughout the year until the next harvest.
Corn cobs are processed through a series of grinding, cleaning, and sizing operations to produce the desired end products. Those products vary from relatively large particles, similar in size to a BB, down to very fine flour products. The sizing is accomplished by sifting material through different sized screens. Products are defined by the size of mesh that the particle would pass through.
For example, a 10-14 grit product contains particles that would pass through a standard 10 mesh screen but are too large to pass through a 14 mesh screen, and a -80 product would be all particles that went through an 80 mesh screen. Screen sizes are standard and refer to the number of openings per inch as in the diagram below. The use of a larger mesh size (number of openings/inch) results in a final product with smaller particles.
