Tree Nuts


LMC is committed to delivering systems and equipment that helps tree nut processors achieve maximum processing capacity and efficiency for their dollar. Our machines are designed specifically to maximize processing speed along with separation effectiveness. What makes LMC unique is the staff of tree nut specialists that can design, build, deliver, and install an entire tree nut processing operation. LMC offers the following equipment specifically designed and engineered for tree nut processing.

  • Prehuller - Used to remove loose hull in the precleaning stages to increase capacity and storage space in following stages
  • Aspirator – Used to separate lights (shells and hulls) from heavies (inhull, inshell, and meats) based on aerodynamic profile
  • Sizing Shaker – Used for scalping (sticks and hulls) and sifting (fines such as dirt and meal); also used for sizing operations
  • Destoner – Used for removal of large stones, dirt clods, and glass in the precleaning stages and precision small stone removal in finishing circuits
  • Gravity Separator – Used to separate lights (weather damaged meats and pee wee inshell) from heavies (quality meats) based on density
  • Hard Shell Cracker – Used to create hairline fractures in hard shells for easier meat removal
  • Shear Roll – Used to separate hulls and shells from meats with a shearing force
  • Easy Dump Elevator – Used to gently elevate products
  • Vibratory Conveyor – Used to gently convey products
  • Accumulators – Used in the meat circuit after the gravity separators to reclaim quality meats from pee wee inshell, thus providing more precise density separation and increasing plant capacities
  • VistaSort - Used for separating seeds and upgrading color commodities based on color
