Cimbria has supplied a cleaning system to Ottogi Corporation, a Food Specialist company in South Korea. The installation is used for the production of dark sesame oil, which is mainly used to enhance food.
The Ottogi Corporation was founded as a food specialist enterprise designed to contribute to improving the dietary habits of Koreans by pursuing 'better quality, more nutrition and more advanced foodstuffs’.
Having been contacted by a consultant of Ottogi at a trade fair, we learned that the sesame cleaning system installed at Ottogi Sesame Mills was no longer working to their satisfaction.
The requirement was the 5-6 t/h processing of sesame seeds which would then be used for the production of dark sesame oil, which has a more intense flavour reminiscent of nuts. This dark sesame oil is mainly used to enhance food, but is also an ingredient in Teriyaki Sauce, for example.
As a result, Ottogi Sesame Mills, which is located in Chungcheongbuk-do province in the middle of South Korea, was visited and surveyed in order to come up with a customised proposal that would meet their demands in full. This fact-finding mission was crowned by a successful conclusion of the contract.
The technical solution for this requirement comprises a Super Fine Cleaner Delta 106 to guarantee high-quality results due to its remarkable after-suction aspiration.
Gravity separation is mastered by a GA 210 and the remaining stones are removed by a dry stoner TS 360 S. These machines have proved their efficiency in Ethiopian sesame processing plants with great success, easily achieving the claimed purity of more than 99.999 %.
In order to also be able to handle perilla, known as ‘wild sesame’, 2 silos and some conveying equipment have been integrated into the plant to store and handle roasted perilla seeds for later oil prodatuction. Incidentally, this perilla oil is known as ‘egoma oil’ in Asia.
It is definitely worthy of mention that Ottogi has also decided to carry out black pepper processing with Cimbria equipment. Besides the aforementioned Super Fine Cleaner Delta 106, an HSR 16010 indented cylinder has been selected for this application, with stone separation performed by a smaller TS 180 S. Conveying is effected by PBE 10 pendulum bucket elevators to treat peppercorns, which were a luxury item in the Middle Ages, with the utmost care.
