“Irregular seed shapes can be made round using pelleting technologies. When we started to work with the Seed Processing Holland rotary pelleting machines for onion and carrot seeds, our process capacity rapidly increased. And the good thing is, they have all the necessary equipment for an advanced pelleting operation: powders feeding, pan and rotary coaters, calibrating, sizing, and fluidized drying.”
Seed Pelleting Pan
Pelleting in a pan is highly suitable for the conventional filling of irregular shaped seeds like e.g. lettuce or carrot seeds by adding powders and water in a coating pan. Because of this process, pelleted seeds have a uniform round shape and will be easier mechanically seeded or planted.
Rotary Seed Pelleting
Rotary Pelleting is very suitable for a very fast filling or encrusting of irregular shaped seeds like onion or beet seeds, by adding powders and liquids in a rotary chamber. Because of this process, pelleted seeds have an uniform shape and will be easier mechanically seeded or planted.
Wet Pellet Calibration
Pellet calibration is very suitable for the fast sizing of wet (humid) seed pellets after a seed pelleting process. By using flat screen sizing technology imperfect pill diameters are separated, so that they can be pelleted again. Because of the high screen accuracy an uniform pellet diameter, before the drying process is obtained.
Dry Pellet Calibration
Pellet calibration is especially suitable for the efficient sizing of dry pellets after a drying process. By means of a flat screen sizing technology, using two screen layers, pellets that are damages (broken) are separated. Through the high screen accurateness the perfect pill diameter is obtained, before it is packed.
Pelleting Powder Feeders
Pelleting powder feeders are ideally suitable to transport pelleting powders ergonomically from a buffer situation (e.g. powder container) automatically to a pelleting pan installation.
