Almond company chooses gentle, clean conveying
A California company revamps its almond processing line, including installing tubular drag conveyors to ensure gentle, dust-free nut handling.
Hilltop Ranch Inc., Ballico, Calif., is a family-owned almond processing corporation that processes 50 million pounds of almonds each year. Recently, industry changes made it necessary for owners David and Christine Long to modify their processing operation. While planning plant modifications, they decided to replace open belt conveyors with dust-free equipment.
