Grading, sizing and colour sorting

Grading is done by the gravity separator. The machine is used for separation on the basis of specific gravity. The process will raise the germination by taking out the light seeds and raise the purity by taking out stones, soil particles and other heavy materials.

To reach and follow the demand of high quality, seeds are more often sown by precision drilling today. Sized seeds will also show a more uniform germination. The sizing is done by a screen sizer normally with round holes.



Colour sorting

Normally the weed seeds can be sorted out, as there is a colour difference between the good product and the weed seed (is rejected). When the seeds are sized, the amount of weed seeds in the smaller sizes will increase.

We have 4 scanners available for upgrading purposes.
