Grain and Seed Processing Equipment FAQs

 
How does grain get processed?

The first step in grain processing is simple: The heads cut off from the wheat stem and then the heads are threshed to separate the grains from the chaff. The grains are then processed separating any remaining debris, finally the grain after the sorting is completed is then transported to a mill where the germ, bran and endosperm are separated.


What happens to a piece of grain when it is processed?
Processing facilities separate the germ, bran and endosperm also known as milling will remove the less desirable and difficult to digest compounds found in grains while concentrating the easily digestible compounds. This does lower the overall nutrient content of the grain, but leaves the cleaned product in suitable condition for dry storage.

Why is seed processing required?
Seed processing reduces the moisture content of the seeds to a safe level. A seed cleaner removes contaminants such as undesired seeds from weeds, other crops and even seeds that have been damaged or otherwise deteriorated. This grading ensures the seed and grain from farmers is suitable for both food and commercial uses.

What are Seed Cleaners?
Seed cleaning, also known as seed conditioning, is the process of preparing harvested seeds for use by farmers. Seed cleaning is a complex process involving lowering the water content of the seeds, cleaning and passing through sorters before the seeds are able to pass through grading to be sold as a consumable product.

What is seed cleaning?
Seed cleaners remove unwanted materials or low-quality seeds. A special cleaning machine sorts the seeds from debris collected by farmers during harvest and separate poor quality or unwanted seeds that can ruin a sample or don't belong in food products.

How is gravity separation used?
A modern gravity separator is used to separate and standardize materials like seeds, nuts and beans. A gravity separator sorts products that have the same approximate size but have different weights.
