Application The Satake VTA Pulse Dehuller is a high capacity machine designed for the removal of hulls and husks from a range of pulse products including lentils, chickpeas, lupines, soy and barley. The machine is exceptionally hard wearing and is designed for trouble free 24 hour operation.
Operating Principle The stock enters the VTA via a regulator valve and into the milling chamber. The product works its way between the vertical abrasive stones, resistance bars and screen. The exhaust on the machine pulls removed hulls and dust through the screen which are collected in a cyclone or dust collector.
The degree of milling is controlled by a simple weighted outlet gate and be adjusted in seconds. Alternatively, the outlet gate setting can be automated and milling degree controlled automatically by interfacing with the plant PLC.
Combination The machine can be used as ‘stand alone’ or for very high debranning rates, the VTA can be used before the VCW PeriTec unit or in series.
Models The VTA Dehuller is available in several sizes and models. Capacity and function depends on product being processed and bulk density.
