Cashew Nut Cooking System

Cashew Cooking Machine(Boiler)

The sun dried raw cashews are gathered in a Cooker depending upon the capacity of the machine. The Steamer is filled with water up level and fire is given to generate steam of 6 kg/cm2. This process takes about 25 mninutes. Now steam was released into the cooker and complete cooking is done in about 20 minutes. The shells get enlarged and the nuts are softened due to penetration of steam into the shell. The whole process takes about 45 mniutes. The nuts are then air cured which harden them for the next process of shelling.

The cashews are gathered to undergo a steaming process in a Cooking Machine (Boiler). This process is carried out without the steam pressurizing the cooker vessel for about 30 minutes. However based upon the conditions of cashew nut and atmospheric situations, the cooking/steaming period varies. The shells get enlarged and the nuts are softened due to penetration of steam into the shell.

Once the steaming done, the nuts are air- cured after which the shell gets hard and is ready for the shelling process operated in the Cashew Shelling Machine. The steam processing preserves the original color of the cashew kernel inside the Nut. The cut shells of steam roasting process yield quality Cashew Nut Shell Liquid [C.N.S.L.].
