Seeds that are routinely processed include those with high oil content such as rape and sunflower, and harder materials such as soybean and cottonseed. Typically seeds are:
Preventing uncontrolled crushing maximises process productivity and reduces the extent of oil release in the conveying equipment, enhancing operational reliability.
Post processing oil cake is handled as either a waste stream or more profitably as a fuel. Like other sources of biomass this material exhibits variability, depending on the oil extraction process applied and the extent of microbial degradation. Please refer to the Biomass page for more information on conveying solutions for this waste stream.
The free-flowing nature of seeds makes flow rate control an essential aspect of equipment design. Inclines need careful consideration to avoid uncontrolled transport. In addition, belting for both belt conveyors and bucket elevators must be oil resistant to avoid degradation and extend machine life.
Gentle transport with slow running machines is preferred for hulled seeds and/or those prone to break-up during transport.
Guttridge has substantial experience of designing solutions for this sector and the proven ability to confidently design for a broad range of different seeds. Guttridge bulk materials handling equipment that is well-suited to oilseeds applications includes:
