Resonance destruction occurs when the vibration of a certain material
exceeds its natural resonance frequency, such as when the
Tacoma Narrows Bridge failed in 1940.
This research reports the use of this resonance destruction phenomenon
to process grain.
In cooperation with Dr. Jeff Gwirtz, KSU, we used a Pulsewave™
Technology machine with a capacity range of 500-8,000 pounds per hour
to reduce wheat grain to flour.
The Pulsewave™ Technology has the ability to reduce a very high percentage
of clean endosperm into flour in a single pass and thus potentially uses
significantly less energy than a conventional mill.
This technology causes grain to break into fractions differently than
a conventional mill, and thus produces flour with different, possibly superior,
