Almond Cracking and Shelling Machine Introduction

The almond shelling machine is one necessary shelling machine in almond processing factories. We offer different capacities (200-1000kg/h) to meet your demand. How can we crack almonds fully without breaking the inner kernel? It depends on the gap almond passes through. Small almonds cannot get cracked while large almonds will be pulverized. So if your almonds are of different sizes, you’d better grade them first.  Do not throw almond shells away, as they can be further made into compost products such as animal bedding material or co-gen plants for energy production.










small Almond cracking separating machine

This mini almond shelling machine is our smallest almond shelling unit. It mainly has two machines: an Almond cracking shelling machine and an Almond gravity separator for shells & kernels. The compact structure and low yield make it suitable for small-scale almond processing factories.

This almond processing unit enjoys the following features

1. The almond cracking rate can reach 98% with the broken rate less than 1%.( for a better cracking effect, you should grade the almonds first)
2. Easy operation. All these procedures are automatic and two people can control the whole almond shelling and separating line.
3. Efficient separating rate in almond shell and kernel gravity tables.
4. Rotary and adjustable rollers make this almond shelling unit suitable for almonds with all hardness.
5. Main components all adopt stainless steel and have a long service life.
6. High shelling efficiency with low energy consumption.
7. Low land occupancy and investment.

Unlike the smallest almond hulling unit, there are three main parts in this automatic almond shelling machine.

A: Almond Grading Machines(Optional)

The Almond grading machine can grade almonds into several levels based on different sizes and dimensions.

B: Almond Shell and Kernel Separating Machine

Almonds get into the shell through the feeder and are cracked by inside force. The almond in the shell will move to the shelter where it will pass through a series of sheer rollers and crackers. The mixture of the almond kernel and almond shells will be separated automatically.

C: Almond  Kernel Peeling Machine (Optional)

This process can remove the almond nut thin peel to get pure almond kernels. ( You can choose according to your need).

This Almond Shelling Machine has the largest capacity up to 1000 kg/h. Apart from the main machines, it requires other accessories like conveyors, feeders, and elevators to work together.

Vibratory Feeder

Using a high-frequency vibratory feeder, almonds in the shell are gently and evenly fed into the hard shell cracker. An even feed to the hard shell cracker is necessary for optimum cracking results.


Hard Shell Cracking Machine

The corrugated, hard rubber rolls operate at an adjustable distance from each other to produce hairline cracks in the hard almond shells. Multiple roller bearings are mounted beneath the hard roll carriage for ease of adjustment.

Automatic Kernel & Shell Separating

1. This unit capacity can be up to 1000kg/h, the best choice for large-scale nuts processing factories.
2. With good quality and cost-effective price, almond processors will find it profitable for their business.
3. Almond sheller unit is suitable for all almond sizes because of the adjustable rotary & adjustable rollers.

Guidance on Almond Further Processing Marketalmond kernel recipe

★ As tree nuts, almond has much nutrition and benefits to humans. Almonds are rich in Vitamin E and carbohydrates.
★ Generally, almonds are consumed as food or snacks. Raw or toasted, the almond kernel is also a part of various dished. Almond can be pressed to almond oil and be made into almond butter or almond milk. Having almond roasted is the basic way to process almond and the price goes to 4500 USD per ton.
★ Almonds are a rich source of oil, with values ranging between 36 to 60% of kernel dry mass. The almond oil is an emollient to the skin as plant essential oil. Purified almond oil can be used as a lubricant to protect musical instruments such as oboe and clarinet.
