Seed Cleaning


This line was started back in the mid 90’s and has been consistently upgraded since then; by adapting to the latest technology available for seed cleaning globally. Different kinds of seeds can be separated when they differ in one or more physical characteristics. Primarily, the line is engaged to remove farm admixtures, insect and rodent excreta, potential allergens and ferrous and non-ferrous contaminants. The Buhler line for cleaning uses Sifters, De-Stoners, Spirals, Indent Cylinders, Gravity Separators, and the latest A+ Multivision Sortex and an On-line Metal Detector. Various controls are in place at the shop floor for identifying and segregation of rejected and cleaned material.

The processing capacity varies from 1 ton to 3 tons an hour as per the
spice seed intended for cleaning

At the facility, pre-crushing lines are installed for the preparation of various cut sizes of chillies, as well as for herbal roots and botanicals. Before crushing, the product is cleaned through different stages. Zig-zag classifiers are used for removing heavy admixtures and stones, which operate according to density difference, and the material is conveyed for further processing.

By regulating air pressure during aspiration of the product, light admixtures and fibers can be removed. We use E1C Sortex machines manufactured by Buhler, it is currently possible to remove fungal-prone chilli pods and discoloured chillies as well. This machine can also be used to remove farm level contaminants that may accompany farm products. The online installation of magnets removes ferrous impurities as well as sifters with varying screen sizes so that the final product fits the required cut size and removes fine powders for better aesthetic appeal.

Installation of Milling Lines is important to ensure there is minimal human intervention by use of a touch screen PLC Controller. The temperature deltas are critically controlled to prevent overheating which ensures retention of flavour and negligible loss of SHUs, ASTA Colour and Volatile oil of spice blends. At Swani Spice Mills Pvt Ltd, we have installed 3 Milling Lines, each with a capacity higher than the former, to cater to the specific needs of each product/spice.


No Indian Spice Blend is complete without the special roasted flavour.
We have a dedicated Roasting Line with a running capacity of 5000 mts/annum.
These roasters are ideal for making the perfectly desired custom roasted blends, thus guaranteeing
the extra special taste in our spice. Often the degree of roasting is critical in ensuring that we get the perfect flavour and aroma.

of custom roast blends and to run trials that match the samples provided by the customer.

Steam Sterilization

Steam Sterilization is an environmental-friendly and extremely effective sterilization method. It yields little waste while monitoring multiple parameters like moisture, temperature, time, etc. Buhler’s Global Prototype for Steam Sterilization of Spice is a seamless marriage between the Eurofins validated continues and batch systems for a 5-log reduction.


The main advantages of this facility at our factory is the high temperature, indirect contact and pre-heating, which uses a minimum quantity of steam. The process allows for good retention of volatile oil and minimal colour changes. Flexibility in the system allows for gentle pasteurization or high-temperature sterilization cycles. Very low micro-results can easily be achieved, especially for seasonings where less than 10,000 TPC is required.
