Title (EN) APPARATUS FOR SEPARATING THE OUTER LAYERS OR SHELLS FROM THE INTERNAL SEED OF PLANT MATTER
(FR) APPAREIL POUR DEGAGER DE LEUR ENVELOPPE OU DE LEUR COQUE LES GRAINES VEGETALES
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus (10) for separating outer layers or shells from the internal seed of plant matter comprises a plant matter inlet (12), a seed outlet (14) and a generally vertical separating chamber (16) interposed between the inlet (12) and outlet (14). Separating chamber (16) is cylindrical and includes a plurality of axially spaced apart inwardly facing nozzles (18) and a plurality of spaced apart apertures (20). The apertures are a size smaller than the seeds being separated to allow only the outer layer or shells to pass therethrough. A separating chamber includes a plurality of inclined to horizontal baffles (21) to increase the residence time in the plant matter in the chamber.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un appareil (10) permettant de dégager de leurs enveloppes extérieures ou de leurs coques les graines végétales. Cet appareil est constitué d'une entrée de matière végétale (12), d'une sortie de graines (14) et d'une chambre de séparation (16) généralement verticale, disposée entre l'entrée (12) et la sortie (14). La chambre de séparation (16), de forme généralement cylindrique, comporte une pluralité de buses (18) axialement séparées les unes des autres et orientées vers l'intérieur, et une pluralité d'orifices (20) séparés les uns des autres. La taille des orifices est inférieure à celle des graines à dégager pour que seules les enveloppes extérieures ou les coques puissent passer au travers des orifices. Une chambre de séparation comporte une pluralité de chicanes inclinées ou horizontales (21) permettant d'accroître le temps de séjour de la matière végétale dans la chambre.
