Cimbria has installed a maize seed processing plant that can handle no less than 14 grades of maize
For Pacific Seeds (Thai) Company Limited, Cimbria has installed a maize seed processing plant that can handle no less than 14 grades of maize due to the widespread use of mechanical planting technology in South America, to where the seed is due to be exported.
It is not the first line and machine Cimbria has installed at Pacific Seeds (Thai), which is a member of Advanta, in recent years. Performance, ease of handling and the practically maintenancefree qualities of Cimbria equipment convinced Pacific Seeds to once again engage Cimbria as general contractor on the construction of a complete plant.
The high export rate to South America and the demand for up to 14 grades were the driving forces behind investment in a complete maize cleaning and grading plant 3 hours north of the capital city of Bangkok. The existing machinery, a mix of Cimbria and locally made equipment, was far too small for the new demand, whilst the design of the new plant enables processing of at least 8 t/h at 14 different grades. Following intake, a Delta 116 functions as a fine cleaner and creates the first 2 grades. The 2 grades obtained run in parallel to the next process through 2 Delta 127 graders. Each of these precise graders creates 4 more grades which are buffered in silos after processing. The final 2 grading sections consist of 3 Cimbria Indent Cylinders in 2 sections (HSR) to obtain the final length grades. These Indent Cylinders will split one grade again into a short and a long fraction. Before each grade is finally packed in jumbo bags, a Cimbria Gravity Separator gives the product the final required purity. Based on demand, maize runs through a Cimbria batch treater to protect the valuable seed from external impacts.
For gentle seed handling and in order not to harm the seed kernels, all Cimbria bucket elevators run at low speed. Our experience in gentle seed handling gives our customers additional value – and in the end a satisfied and happy end-user. As a result of the customer’s experience of Cimbria equipment, Plant Manager Mr. Denpong Patta and the local and Cimbria team, the seed processing and grading line was installed in just 5 weeks!
