Edible Seeds Industry

Popcorn, Peas, Pinto Beans, Kidney Beans, Rice, Sunflower, Lentil, Peanuts

The edible seeds industry such as popcorn, peas, pinto beans, kidney beans, rice, sunflower, lentil and peanuts serve one of the most demanding consumer categories of all agricultural processing. Nothing degrades perceived quality like biting down on even one tiny contaminant. Processors, who want nothing but the best for their customers, choose Oliver separators, bed dryers and destoners. Rock, dirt, broken seeds, stalk, fungus and soil peds are removed quickly and efficiently, even in wet conditions or from hard-to separate materials. Soil peds can fool many separators, but Olivers’ shake out by density, not just weight, and our tolerances go down as far as + 2% in most cases. Adjustability is our next secret weapon and with additional setups like closing down gates and decreasing capacity Oliver can provide you the best separations. Even on the most challenging harvests and contaminants; such as, the minute variations in sunflower harvest.

Many beans benefit from immersive or rinsed coatings, such as with sunflower anti-fungal treatments. Oliver’s Fluidized Bed Dryers use gentle vibration and controlled air circulation to quickly and thoroughly dry these coated products of artificially introduced moisture before it is absorbed. Also, Oliver Destoners add value and minimizes process losses and damage on other machinery by removing heavy contaminants (such as glass, dirt, stones and metal) from larger quantities of lighter harvest desirables. And the Oliver Precision Size-Right uses the tightest screen tolerances available to provide safe, easy and efficient raw product sorting within 0.008″ accuracy.
