Maize De-Germer / Huller

The Alvan Blanch Maize De-Germer/Huller has been specifically developed for the removal of germ and bran from maize grains.

Maize De-germer - Alvan Blanch

Vertical Maize De-Germer / Huller

The maize must be pre-conditioned (humidifying) over a brief period so that bran and germ have been softened. In the De-germer/Huller the grains pass upwards through an internal chamber, where the action of the rotor mechanism promotes friction between the grains, breaking them and detaching the skins and germ from the pieces of maize endosperm (large maize grits). A pneumatic system separates the germ/bran from the grits – these by-products are then available for further processing (animal feed, oil, etc.).

Specification

Vertical hulling chamber with internal components in stainless steel. Precision engineered breaking rotor with surrounding screen. Screw feeder with variable speed control via inverter. Overload protection system allowing machine performance to be optimized. Ventilating fan. Base plate for machine and main drive motor. Drive motors: 55 kW, 3 kW and 1.1 kW.

Key Features

  • Capacity – up to 4,500kg/hr
  • Low oil content in maize grits
  • Low level of residual bran
  • High recovery rate of grits
  • Low power requirement relative to output

Horizontal Maize De-Germer / Huller

Specification

Horizontal hulling chamber with precision engineered breaking rotor with surrounding screen. Self-standing, compact design with enclosed drive. Drive motor: HH2000: 45 kW HH800: 22 kW

Key Features

  • Capacity – up to 2000kg/hr
  • Low level of residual bran
  • High recovery rate of grits

Continuous Conditioning System

  • Stainless steel construction
  • Precision controlled dampening
  • Thorough mixing action

The conditioning system provides the initial moisture to the maize grain before they are hulled. it allows carefully controlled degrees of water absorption over a short time, reaching the germ and the hull, without increasing moisture levels in the maize endosperm. There are a choice of models to work alongside the Alvan Blanch range of Maize De-Germer/Huller.

Specification

  • Inclined stainless steel mixing chamber with removable access panels.
  • Motorised mixing paddle, driven via reduction gearbox, creates optimum water absorption.
  • Control panel allows precision control of product feed rate and water application.
