Cashew Nut Shell Remover

 

The Cashew nut shell is parted in two by this device and the seed falls into the collecting tray. The shell is later released from split case into another collecting tray.

  • The cashew nuts are fed into the Feed hopper from where they come down to the conveyor belt one at a time and is pushed by means and then trapped in a cashew shaped split case which pierces just the shell in vertical position, in progressive cutting.
  • The shell parts into two and the nut falls into collection tray.
  • The shell will be released from split case into another collecting tray.

 

At present each nut is to be removed manually from the shell by hammering. The oil from the shell damages the skin and requires lot of labour.
