Polex Environmental Engineering installed a new dust collection and separation system for the Clovelly Group, creators of Cicada Artisan Fine Chocolates. The company believes in using ethically sourced produce and no additives are used in their products.

The Clovelly Group’s bean to bar process where the beans are roasted, cracked, winnowed and refined to produce a superior chocolate required a robust coffee separation system to separate the coffee nibs from their shells.

The coffee nibs are introduced into Polex’s feed hopper with the mixture drawn through a cyclone separator that separates the coffee nibs into a collection drum and passes the shells through to a dust collection unit.

One of Polex’s innovative Econo 3000 shaker type dust collectors was chosen for the application, collecting both the shells and any fine dust produced in plastic bags. The separation system is powered by a 3 kW materials handling fan capable of up to 3000 m³/h of airflow. The airflow capacity can be regulated by a variable speed drive to optimise separation of the coffee shells from the nibs.

Following the installation of the dust collection system, the Clovelly Group has seen a vast improvement with their separation processes and a significant reduction in manual labour. The Clovelly Group was extremely satisfied with the outcomes.
