Pulse & Cereal Dehulling

Satake have developed their vertical processing technology and applied it to the dehulling of pulses & beans and the dehusking of cereals such as barley.

The use of vertical processing ensures even milling chamber pressures, efficient use of stones and screens and more even and consistent finished product quality.

Our machines are used in human food applications, feed milling and starch processes.

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.

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. 

The VTA Dehuller is available in several sizes and models. Capacity and function depends on product being processed and bulk density.
