Get to Know Castor Seed Shelling
Considering the small size of castor seeds and compact castor beans, we design the latest low-frequency castor shelling machine unit. It can ensure a high shelling efficiency and low broken rate in castor seed shelling procedure. If you are in castor business, you will never regret to buy our castor seed shelling machine.
Castor seed shelling machine has similar shelling functions like other nuts shelling machines. Light caster shells are blown out by airflow from inner shaker tables. Other kernels and castor seeds mixture will be separated by gravity tables. Our castor shelling equipment can process castor seeds in the different size at one time. Castor seeds are cracked in various gap and pressure. Unshelled castor beans will flow to next sheller to be cracked again. Multiple and repetitive cracking steps ensure a 100% shelling rate.
300 kg/h Castor Seed Shelling Machine
1. In view of the fact that castor seeds are small in size and little clearance between shell & kernel, we design this shelling machine with a low frequency which can improve the shelling rate and at the same time reduce broken kernel rate.
2. We adopt the negative pressure vibrating separator to sort out all the shells and discharge the shells out through shells-discharger.
3. Our kernels separator combines gravity separation with vibration to achieve the percentages of seeds in final kernels is less than 1%.
4. The unshelled seeds after the first round of shelling will be lifted by elevator to de-hullers for re-shelling.
5. Easy operation, high automatic degree, safe and reliable.
6.An optimum equipment for large-scale, small and medium-sized enterprises who are in the oil crushing industry with castor bean kernels or in the pharmaceutical industry made of castor bean shells or husks.
