After the exceptionally successful manufacture of the MACMARTIN’S nutcracker, ELECMEC ENGINEERING has developed a new 4 lane de – husker.

We have done away with all wear parts such as springs, bushes and rods and replaced them with ROSTA tensioners. Depending on the variety of nut being de husked, these tensioners can quickly and easily be adjusted, simply by adjusting a bolt.

The rolls are driven by a 5.5Kw geared motor and the speed of the rolls are fully adjustable. All the rolls have been case hardened and removable stainless steel wear strips aline the chain housings. Furthermore, the chains can be adjusted closer to the rolls when smaller nuts are husked, simply by adjusting two bolts.

All chutes and doors are manufactured of ring polished 304 stainless steel. The in feed chute can accommodate + – 30kg of nut in shell and is fitted with an adjustable gate to control feed speed. The vibrator feeder is also adjustable.

Not only is this de husker extremely robust, but ecstatically good looking too.

The size of the machine is H =  1300 x  L= 1900 x  W = 1020mm
The weight of the machine uncrated is + – 900kg
The machine only draws + – 11A on full load
