Nut Cracker

Nut cracker for all types of nuts

For oil bearing nuts.

Standard (Approx 500kg/hr)

Standard Nut Cracker

Application

For farm, village or co-operative use.

Operation

Nuts are fed from the hopper into a rotating spinner from which they are thrown by centrifugal force to the outer casing, causing them to break, before being discharged. The racking rate is adjustable - on engine driven versions by means of rotor speed and on electric units by an adaptor to the rotor.

Construction

Built for continuous use (unlike most crackers of this design) of heavy-gauge steel (casing 7mm). Due to simplicity of design, there are no wearing parts and maintenance is therefore limited to engine servicing. The machine is mobile with two 400x8 pneumatic wheels, leg stand and hand tow bar.

Drive Options

4kW electric motor, petrol or diesel engine all direct mounted.

MAXI (3-4 Tonnes per hr)

Maxi Nut Cracker

Application

For oil processing factories and agro-industries. The ‘Maxi’ is designed for continuous operation at a high throughput to give optimum results, in terms of cracking efficiency (up to 97%) and low rates of kernel breakage. A particular feature of this machine is its ability to process wet or green nuts. This machine also gives excellent results on many different types of nuts.

Operation

As the nuts fall into the shelling chamber they are knocked repeatedly between the rotating drum and the 'ripple' concave plate. The clearance between the concave and the drum is adjustable to enable optimum results to be achieved.

Construction

Extra heavy-duty (body 10mm plate) this machine is built to provide many years of service. The drum bars can be rotated to give four wearing surfaces before replacement becomes necessary. The ‘ripple’ concave can eventually be replaced. A large hopper allows convenient feeding.

Drive Options

15kW electric motor or diesel engine.
