The soaked hazelnuts are transported through the soaking machine to the hazelnut opener.

Hazelnut opening machine

This is one of the centerpieces of the hazelnut processing line. It is a hazelnut processing equipment that cracks the shell of the hazelnuts under the action of steam and a squeezing disk, which makes it easier for the consumer to shell the hazelnuts. There is a screw in the bin inside the opener, which distributes the hazelnuts in the bin evenly in the different opening channels. Each hazelnut shell opening line has a minimum of 5 opening channels, 5 hazelnut opening channels in a group. In addition, we have 2, 3 and 4 groups of hazelnut opening machine for you to choose from. The opening rate of our hazelnut openers is more than 97%.
