Walnut Storage Facility
Kotzur designed, engineered and installed this walnut storage in the Riverina.
Quality sealed storage complies with AS 2628, and Kotzur has a demonstrated track record of exceeding this benchmark over the decades. It is an essential feature for any storage vessel that is to be used to treat product with fumigant or controlled atmospheres.
This was incorporated on a Kotzur designed, manufactured and constructed nut storage facility, totalling some 3100 m3 of storage in the first stage. Belt conveyors were used in both the loading and unloading of the silos, and specified to accommodate the natural oils present in the product. Broken product was a major concern of the client’s, so a spiral chute was developed and installed in each of the silos, to minimise impact loading during silo filling. Further to this, the elevators were configured to minimise product speed out of the head.
