A macadamia nut grower was seeking to automate their nut processing operation. Macadamia nuts are first dried, then sorted, cracked and packed for sale.
An OLDS ELEVATOR™ vertical conveyor was designed and installed to elevate whole nuts to fill a drying silo. Its discharge can be switched to transfer the dried nuts instead to a storage silo prior to cracking and packaging.
The same OLDS ELEVATOR™ unit is also used to elevate the shells after cracking. The shells are used as fuel by area industry.Email Olds Elevator™
