The nut hulling device removes the green skin of wallnuts by means of the rotating elastic paddles inside the cylindrical perforated tube. The tube is equipped with spray nozzles through which water springs out aiding the hulling process. The nuts are loaded on the hopper and conveyed by gravity into the hulling tube. The water consumption is approximately 2 cubic meters per hour at about 2 bars pressure. The batch process duration is approximately 2 - 5 min and then the unloading is achieved by opening the sliding hatch on the other end of the device. The green skin and water are being drifted through the inclined apron and out below the device. The loading of the green nuts can be assisted by belt conveyors and the end product can be gathered into plastic crates for transportation to the next processing stage (such as drying).
