Equipment for Cleaning
the Harvest

  • Savage In-shell Sizers
    Savage Sizing Reels rapidly sort nuts by size. These sizes can be configured to your unique requirements--as few as two sizes, or as many as five. They consist of a rotating “cage” through which the nuts progress. These machines are also used to clean pecans of dirt, small rocks and other debris. Our newest model provides great access and visibility to the internal reaches of the machine.

  • Savage Sizing Reel
    Inside the Savage Sizing Reel, internal steel deflectors help move the product through rapidly. Highly durable, flexible “scrapers” ensure nuts do not become lodged in the machine. Savage makes reels with diameters of 36", 48" and 60" to accommodate any size of nut-cleaning operation. It is often integrated with the Savage Stick Remover, saving valuable space.As with most Grayline Equipment, it can be mounted on adjustable legs to fit neatly into a complete nut-cleaning plant.

  • Savage Stick Remover
    The Savage Stick Remover often serves as the essential first stage of a complete nut-cleaning plant. It is designed to quickly and efficiently remove sticks and larger pieces of debris from the harvested product. Our latest generation Stick Remover is more efficient than ever, and it can be mounted in tandem with our Sizer/Cleaning Reel.

  • Ingenious Design
    The Savage Stick Remover is highly effective at removing sticks and other large debris from harvested nuts. The 2-stage chain causes sticks to lay flat for easy removal while keeping the product moving at maximum flow rate. A series of radial “bumps” cause clumps of product to dislodge, so that good nuts end up where they should.

  • Flexibility is built in.
    The Stick Remover is available in the three sizes: 36, 48 and 60 inch widths. The discharge conveyor can be oriented to the left or right, and the mounting height is fully adjustable to accommodate almost any cleaning plant configuration. The powerful electric motor is available in single-phase or three-phase versions. The stick remover shown at right is part of a pre-cleaning system that includes a Pre-Vac, the Stick Remover, a Sizer and the Trash Conveyor at the bottom.

  • Savage Aspirator and

  • Aspirator
    The Savage Aspirator can be employed in a variety of ways. As nuts pass by on the vibrating pan, lighter debris is suctioned off for disposal or transfer. The fan speed can be finely regulated to accommodate many situations. These machines can also be used after in-shell sorting to further grade nuts by quality/meat percentage due to the weight variance. This allows users to market their best quality pecans separately in order to gain a higher premium.

  • Stone Remover
    The Savage Stone Remover is really two machines in one. The first stage of the machine removes the heavy debris. This is done by means of a 15-HP variable-speed fan that lifts nuts and lighter material from the conveyor chain, allowing stones and other heavy debris to be carried away for disposal. The second stage pulls off lighter material. An ingenious adjustable airlock system, powered by a 10HP fan, allows the operator to finely tune what gets through the each stage and what does not.
