Coconut fiber also commonly known as coir or coir fiber is natural fiber found between the hard internal shell and the outer coat of a coconut. The natural fiber is extracted from the outer husk of coconut. The clean, natural & golden fiber extracted has many usages & applications such as doormats, ropes, mattresses! Apart from making commercially usable goods, it can also be used for various other purposes such as in horticulture, agriculture & plantation.
Our client is India’s leading coconut processing company specialized in manufacturing of almost all coconut products. Their product ranges from coconut water to coconut skimmed milk, from virgin coconut oil to desiccated coconut, coir wood to coconut flour, and from coconut fiber to coconut shell charcoal.
Client wanted efficient screening machine that could help them to grade & sort coconut fiber.
Coconut fiber is obtained after various processes starting from husking till de-fibering coconuts. Client wanted to properly sort, grade & classify coir.
Currently client is using competitor made horizontal sieving machine, but are facing many issues.
The main concerns faced by client while screening, grading & sorting coconut fibers were of efficiency & accuracy.
Also as client wanted to classify coconut fibers, two layers of screens were required. Horizontal sieve with dual decks was not performing accurately & demanded high maintenance.
The client having met our product expert in renowned food expo explained their concerns with horizontal sieve.
After knowing the real time problems, our product expert suggested to send specified amount of coir fiber for running a trial at Galaxy’s R&D center.
A trial was conducted at R&D center with our prime gyratory separator with two screens. The result matched the expectation of client & hence dual deck 72” Sivtek Vibro Separator® were installed at client’s plant. Watch on site video.
The result was up to the expectations as client ordered 1 more unit of deck 72” Sivtek Vibro Separator® only after a month. During the installation of second machine client gave us a valuable feedback saying “the round separator from Galaxy Sivtek is working smoothly without any breakdowns. With horizontal sieving machine we weren’t getting accurate results & maintenance cost was very high. We are fully satisfied with solution provided by Galaxy Sivtek”
