Satake launches “Bean Cleaner”, a machine that removes dust and dirt from the surface of beans, on June 1st.
It is a high capacity continuous type machine suitable for bean drying and processing facilities
There are situations where dust and dirt adheres to the bean surface from harvesting and berry dropping process. Bean processers used to remove this dust and dirt after drying. Typical machines used for bean cleaning are small with a capacity less than 1 ton per hour. They are installed off-line, separate from the main processing line, and require a regular operator in the most cases.
The new bean cleaner has a 2 tons per hour capacity and can be installed in the processing line. It does not require a regular operator lowering cost of processing. The cleaner uses edible tapioca pearls for polishing. Because tapioca pearls can repeatedly be used unlike corn cobs used in the typical bean cleaning machines, the cost of the polishing agent can be reduced by 1/6.
1st stage : Beans and tapioca is mixed to remove dust on the bean surface.
2nd stage : Beans, tapioca and very little water is mixed to remove dirt adhered to its surface.
