Brolton Group was awarded the contract to design and construct new cotton seed delinting and treating plants at Cotton Seed Distributors re-developed Wee Waa Facility

Cotton Seed Distributors Limited (CSD) supplies cotton planting seed to all Australian cotton growers.

The Delinting Plant is used to remove the ‘fuzzy’ lint coating from cotton seeds that are an output from the cotton ginning processes during the annual cotton harvesting season. The fuzzy seeds are delivered to the CSD Wee Waa facility by truck and stored in large sheds prior to delinting.

The Treating Plant is used to apply various coatings to the black seed (previously prepared by the Delinting Plant) that protect the seed and seedling from diseases and insects once planted

The scope of work included the design, fabrication, integration and commissioning of various purpose designed machines including

  • Seed dryers
  • Pneumatic conveying system
  • Weigh cars
  • Delinting drums
  • Buffer drums
  • Bins and hoppers
  • Air extraction and dust handling system
  • Structures, ladders and walkways
  • Safety systems and machine guarding
  • Storage silos
  • Electrical and control systems
  • Bagging and palletising lines
  • Seed debagging lines
  • Off-grade handling and storage system
  • Seed treating systems
