The sprinkler of the ancient flour-mill "Sant Salvador" in Figueres.

Once the wheat’s germ is eliminated at the grain scouring machine, the wheat is transported to sprinkler where it is wet, in such a way that it reaches the conditioning storeroom with a maximum humidity of 15%. If it is stored under conditions of excessive humidity, it could ferment and would longer be suitable for making flour.
