List of crops that this technology shells
Overall percentage of nuts broken
- Galvanized steel body in bolt together panels (packed flat for transport).
- Cast iron spiked rustlers are fitted in rows to the base of the rotor which is moved backwards and forwards manually.
- This action breaks the shells against the wire screen that forms the curved base to the machine.
- The shell pieces can then be winnowed away from the kernels.
- Two sizes of wire screen (9mm and 11mm) are supplied with each unit to suit differing varieties.
- Volume (m3): 0.05
- Weight (kg): 30

Performance targets: Interview with representative
- Shell up to 100 kg/hr
- Best results on the GS100 models are achieved if the ‘in shell’ nuts are graded into small, medium and large sizes.
- The machine is then set to suit one of these grades and reset for the next grade later.
- In this way breakage into large kernels of unshelled nuts is minimized.
- The concave screen is easily interchangeable so that different perforation sizes can be used for different grades.
Most product testing is done on site, and reports are then put together internally. Alvan Blanch QUOTATION No.: EX13.0733/US-1-cmb
