Meike Schulz, RHEWUM GmbH
In April 2010 RHEWUM GmbH gained an order for construction and manufacturing of a screening machine for company Oelmuehle (oil mill) Broekelmann which is producing amongst others the in Germany well known oil brand Broelio.
The machine type RIUS 1950x4000/1 will be used for the screening of 100 t/h rape seed at 3.5 mm.
Due to the natural high moisture content rape seed is a relatively hard to screen material. Being aware of this extensive tests were performed at RHEWUMs testing facilities before defining a machine type and size. Furthermore the machine is lined with a food compliant wear protection to protect the parts of the machine against the very strong rape seed. After a construction an manufacturing time of only 2 months the delivery of the machine is foreseen for the beginning of July 2010, start up is foreseen for the course of July.
