This type unit gives a high production in the coir industry. The husks are beaten down to husk pieces and fibre is extracted from the husk pieces using beating principle. This is the machine which people are very much interested due to low maintenance.
Based on customers’ production requirements, we have different designs to satisfy them by quantity and quality of the fiber produced. Mostly when we go for high production in single unit the quality of the fiber may deteriorates a little.
Machine Specifications (for 5 tons fibre output / 8 hours):
Buster is used to break the husks down to husk pieces using beating principle. This way, the husk pieces get soaked quicker and the load on the decorticator reduces when compared with the whole husks.
|POWER||:||60H.P. – 1440 RPM|
|LENGTH||:||1450 mm including motor size|
|CAPACITY||:||5,000 to 5,500 husk / hr|
Polisher set (Decorticator):
First Polisher is used to extract fibre from the crushed, soaked and squeezed husks using beating principle. Here, the extracted fibre is also cleaned to some extent.
Second Polisher is used to thoroughly clean the partially cleaned fibre obtained from the first Polisher. Beating principle is used for fibre cleaning.
These two polishers are fixed side by side on the same frame and the first ones outlet is fixed to the seconds’ inlet. The two main purposes of combining the two machines is to
- Reduce the labor and power.
- Reduce the time taken in this ongoing process.
|POWER||:||50 H.P 1440 RPM for first polisher
40 HP 1440 RPM for second polisher
|CAPACITY||:||5,000 to 5,500 husk / hr (or) approx.4.5 tons of fibre / 8hr shift.|
The screener is used to separate the mixed fibre, obtained from the decorticator and beater, from baby fibre and pith. The screened fibre is then taken to the drying yard or dryer for drying.
|POWER||:||2 H.P. – 720 RPM|
|CAPACITY||:||5 tons of screened fibre / 8 hr|
The dried fibre is made into bales, each bale weighing 30 – 35 kg.
|POWER||:||5 H.P. – 1440 RPM|
|LENGTH||:||1160 mm including motor size|
|CAPACITY||:||12 bundles of 35 kgs. / hr|
