Cimbria is proud to have installed a multi-seed processing line mainly used for sunflower, including a continuous dryer for Remington Seeds
Remington Seeds has a wonderfully good working relationship with some of America’s leading seed companies with over 25 years of seed production and operations expertise.
Remington is 100% focused on seed production, conditioning, packaging and distribution and is not directly involved in hybrid/varietal research, trait development or engaging in direct sales to farmers. Remington Seeds has once again decided to expand its activities in Europe. Cimbria is proud to have won the order to install a multi-seed processing line mainly used for sunflower, including a continuous dryer.
The entire installation consists of five main sections: Receiving/Drying/Pre-cleaning and Fine Cleaning/Calibration:
Receiving/Drying/Pre-cleaning: A Cimbria Pre-cleaner 146 after truck reception achieves 30 t/h sunflower intake capacity and directly feeds a Cimbria Continuous Dryer ALG 12. The dryer, which has indirect gas heating, reaches a capacity of 25t/12h sunflower seed drying with moisture reduction from 13.5% to 7.5%. As the plant can be used individually for different products such as maize seed, the Cimbria pre-cleaning section is also connected to the existing maize shelling machine by a conveyor belt.
Fine Cleaning/Calibration: Traditional and well-proven, fine cleaning of sunflower seed is performed by the Cimbria Delta Super Fine Cleaner, with the air-lifting unit ensuring 5 t/h perfectly fine cleaned sunflower seeds and 10 t/h corn seed. The Cimbria Delta Grader splits the seeds into two sizes. Finally, two Cimbria Cylindrical Cleaner Batteries split the seed into up to 4 fractions, which are then intermediately stored in octabins and can subsequently be filled into the section with Cimbria Gravity Separators (currently two of the type GA 210, each with 2.5 t/h performance on sunflower seeds). Last, but not least, a Cimbria Chromex 7 chute color sorter performs the optical finishing on 5 t/h sunflower seeds before the seed enters the final stage, namely the Cimbria CentriCoater in connection with the Cimbria Jog Conveyor Dryer.
Any of the machines can be fed independently from the octabins, thus providing plenty of flexibility in the process.
