New Bean Cleaning Plant Commissioned

Bean Growers Australia’s head office and processing plant is located in Kingaroy, Queensland, some 220 km northwest of Brisbane. The company is Australia’s largest bean processor and has been supplying Australian and overseas customers with top quality beans since 1964.

Bean Growers Australia prides itself on handling quality pulse/bean crops, soybeans, adzuki beans, navy beans, mungbeans and chickpeas. It is also a major supplier of popcorn.

The new plant was designed, supplied and commissioned by Cimbria Australia specifically to suit the customer’s requirements in terms of the existing building, capacity and quality of the finished product.

The plant incorporates the first Cimbria HMD “Z” elevators installed in Australia. There are a total of seven PBE20s and two PBE10s installed, combined with a Delta type 107 Super Performance, a TS-360 Dry Stoner and a GA-310 Gravity Separator. Two Cimbria Jog conveyors were also used for gentle handling and hygiene, as well as several SP18 vibratory feeders. The complete new plant was plumbed with Cimbria “Q” pipes and a number of Cimbria Australia special “Q” connections.

Over the last few months this plant has been thoroughly tested on product that has been subjected to some of Australia’s local environmental extremes due to abnormal rainfall during planting and harvesting. This has proved the plant’s capabilities and provides a justification for installing the best equipment available.

During the plant installation it was not possible to drive to the site for several weeks from either Brisbane or southern Australia due to the flooding south of Kingaroy.
