walnut cracking machine – Junior walnut cracker – CA3

Very robust, reliable and high-performance, this nut cracker will provide a high percentage of halves, depending on the variety of walnuts. It cracks up to 100kg/hour.


The CA3 is the reference in its category. It is designed to break 3 nuts at a time, previously washed and dried, calibrated or not.
To increase its flow (+ 50%), it can be equipped with a variable speed drive.
Its breaking system is continuous. It minimizes breakage of kernels.
Its practical and effective use does not require monitoring. They are particularly robust and require very little maintenance.
The CA3 are equipped with an anti-stones system which makes it possible not to damage the breaker if stones with the same diameter of the nuts pass in the machine.

The Junior CA3 breaker is equipped with 380 V three-phase.
In the standard version, the flow rate of the CA3 is 50 to 70 kg / hour depending on the size of the nuts.
With the electronic speed variator option, a maximum flow rate of 70 to 100 kg / hour is possible.
This option also makes it possible to lower the speed of the breaker to 20kg / hour.

– In the case of nuts that are easy to break, you want to have bigger flow, the variator option allows you to increase it up to 100kg / hour depending on the size of the nut.
– If you are alone at the sorting table, the batch is difficult, you can lower the flow with the drive option up to 20kg / hour.
