The plant is capable of processing multiple commodities, including durum, winter wheat, chickpeas, green and yellow field peas, kabuli chickpeas, large green lentils, small green lentils, red lentils, brown mustard and fenugreek
When the Watson family of Avonlea, Saskatchewan, began considering building a new cleaning plant, they looked for ideas and information in many places. They soon found the Cimbria name in many successful facilities in the region, as well as finding Nexeed, Cimbria’s dealer in Canada at a local agricultural exhibition. With more than 25 years’ experience helping customers like the Watsons, Nexeed was able to work closely with the Watson organization to determine what their future plant would need to include and how to best realise that goal. It was determined that a turnkey solution would be the best fit, and Nexeed put together the necessary group to manage the project from the detailed design and planning phase all the way through to commissioning.
The resultant plant includes a Cimbria Delta 107 Super Cleaner, HSR12020 Indent Cylinders, a GA310 Gravity Separator and a Chromex 5 Optical Sorter. Structural steel and operator platforms were supplied directly by Nexeed for quick erection onsite. The plant is capable of processing multiple commodities, including durum, winter wheat, chickpeas, green and yellow field peas, kabuli chickpeas, large green lentils, small green lentils, red lentils, brown mustard and fenugreek. Capacity varies, but is within the 9-11 TPH range, depending on the product and the job that is needed. With most commodities being cleaned to pedigree standard, the capacity of the machines is not critical, since purity is one of the main goals.
Calvin Watson, Co-Owner and Vice President commented: “We knew what we wanted the plant to be able to do, and Nexeed helped us determine how to do it. The project went smoothly and we are very happy with the reliability and functionality of the plant”. He went on to say, “We have been extremely happy with the precision of the Cimbria machines and their durability. The precision has allowed us to have a high quality of seed with a low clean out amount. The follow-up service has been great. We would definitely recommend any of the Cimbria machines we have used.”
