Peanut butter processing procedures
The main procedures of the automatic peanut butter making machines: Roasting → Cooling → Peeling → Selecting → Lifting → Grinding → Storing → Mixing → Degassing → Filling
Step 1 Pour raw peanut kernels into the hopper of the roaster machine for baking for a while until the red skin of peanuts becomes crisp. The roasting machine rolls roasted peanuts out automatically.
Attention: Don’t Over-Bake. In case the taste of peanut butter is affected.
Step 2 Then peanuts are transported to the cooling belt and tiled for cooling to maintain and keep the original flavor of peanuts.
Step 3 Cooled peanuts are peeled by the peeling machine to remove the red skins. And unqualified or other materials are excluded from the selecting belt.
Step 4 Grinding machine (colloid mill) crushes peanut kernels, and peanut butter is then stored in storage tanks.
Step 5 The peanut butter is sent to the storage tank and goes through the steel pipe to arrive in the mixing tank. Here, butter is added with seasonings to be tastier.
Step 6 Vacuum tank eliminates air. In this way, the shelf life of peanut butter is extended.
Step 7 The final peanut butter is filled in bottles for selling.
Main Machines of Peanut Butter Production Line
Roaster → Peeling Machine → Selecting Belt → Grinding Machine → Storing Tank → Mixing Tank → Vacuum Tank → Filling Machine
To get clean peanut kernels, it is often required to use a peanut sheller machine and peanut destoner machine at first in the peanut butter production line.
A peanut sheller machine is used to remove the shells of peanuts with high efficiency.
A peanut destoner is to clear up the peanut kernels by eliminating the impurities, like stone or dirt.
Peanut roasting machine
Type 1: rotary drum peanut roaster
This peanuts roasting machine is mainly used for baking peanut kernels. It adopts the advanced structure of the drum, which is cutting-edge technology. The heating source can be electricity or gas. A thermostat is installed to adjust the temperature. The temperature can reach 240-260 Celsius degrees in an electricity-heated roaster, 220-240 in a gas-heated model. The roasting time can be set.
Put raw materials into the inlet, and the drum rotates continuously. In the process, roasted food moves up and down, left and right, back and forth, and fully stereoscopic baked Thus, the drum roasting machine heats peanuts uniformly. When the time is up, the peanut roaster machine discharges roasted nuts out. This machine is applied in baking peanuts, almonds, sesame, and other nuts.
|Transmission power (kw)||0.75||1.1||2.2||3.3||5.5|
|Gas consumption (kg)||1-1.5||–||–||9-10||10-13|
Type 2: continuous chain roasting and cooling machine
A continuous chain roasting machine is widely used to process peanuts, cashews, walnuts, pistachios, almonds, broad beans, and other granular nuts. The equipment makes the materials heated evenly and efficiently. It can realize continuous feeding and discharge with high efficiency. The baking temperature and time are both controllable. Equipped with a circulating air device, the machine cools the roasted material after roasting. The machine capacity ranges from 100kg/h to 1ton/h. Its heating source can be gas or electricity.

Groundnut peeling machine
Type 1: small-output peanut peeling machine
The peanut peeler machine can remove red skins of peanuts of different specifications. Our company has specialized in producing roasting machines made of high-quality materials. There are two types of peeling machines. They are dry-type and wet-type peeling machines. Peeling machines can process soybeans, peanuts, almonds, and others.
Peanut peeling machine consists of the power device (electric motor, belt pulley, belt, and bearing, etc), frame, feeding, inlet, peeling roller, suction fan, etc. This machine is equipped with an exhaust system and a vibrating screen. When the peeler machine works, it rolls and transmits with friction at different speeds. When the moisture of roasted peanuts is less than 5% (in case of burning), it is the best time for peeling. At such a time, the exhaust system in the peeler sucks red skins of peanuts away. The vibrating screen removes the peanut bud. As a result, the peanut kernel is divided into two parts evenly.
Type 2: peanut peeling machine with medium and large outputs
This type of peanut peeling and split machine has the features of high output (500-1000kg/h), high peeling rate (98%), and excellence in removing peanut germs (90%). The three rollers in the peeling machine can efficiently peel the red peanut skins, and the sieves split the two halves of peanut kernels through vibration.
Peanut Butter Grinding Machine
Type 1: single peanut butter grinder
The peanut grinding machine is widely applied in the food industry, chemical industry, pharmaceutical industry, etc. It can crush, emulsify, and comminute raw materials. Therefore, the peanut butter grinding machine is suitable for the fine grinding of fluid and semi-fluid materials. The peanut grinder machine can be used to produce a wide range of foods and beverages, such as ice cream, fruit juice, sesame butter, jam, milk, etc.
Type 2: combined peanut grinder
In the peanut butter production line, the combined peanut grinder machine with higher capacity and fineness is often used. Our peanut milling machines have been exported to many countries around the world, such as the Philippines, India, Kenya, and South Africa.
The peanut butter grinder machine involves shearing, grinding, and mixing at a pretty high speed. When the electric motor begins, it drives the whole grinder. There are two grinding discs inside the machine. One rotates at high speed while the other at rest. When stator and rotor move relatively at high speed, peanuts flow into space between them and are crushed. Due to high-frequency vibration and high-speed vortex and other complex forces, materials can be effectively ground, emulsified, pulverized, dispersed, and homogenized.
Storing, mixing and degassing tanks
A peanut mixing tank is a piece of equipment used for blending, heating, emulsifying, and mixing raw materials. The making material is stainless steel. The mixing tank is composed of a mixing tank body, mixing tank cover, agitator, support, transmission device, shaft seal device, etc. A vacuum tank can remove the air to extend the shelf life of peanut butter.
Peanut butter packaging machine
Type 1: Semi-automatic Butter Filling Machine
The semi-automatic peanut butter filling machine is for filling and packing butter. But its use has extended to many products as well. Paste filling machines are also suitable for filling paste, jellies, and jams, especially highly viscous paste. The driver of this filling machine is compressed air. The peanut butter filler is made of 304 stainless steel. Packaging container varies from bags, bottles, cans, pouch and stand-up pouch.
This filler employs a volumetric method to measure and adjust the paste quantity at a time. Therefore, it’s also a piston filling machine. This machine is with a self-priming cylinder where a piston exists and runs. The piston is playing within the cylinder at a moderate speed. The diameter of the piston and the way it runs from head to foot determines filling material quantity and volume. So that volume remains constant and stable every time. The piston moves back and forth to fill paste into various containers.
Type 2: Automatic Peanut Butter Packing Machine
In a fully automatic peanut butter packing line, there are bottle unscrambler, automatic filling machine, capping machine, and labeling machine. The machine series is quite labor-saving and time-saving.
