Cleaning and selection of cereals
The cleaning and selection of cereals (cereals, seeds, legumes, etc.) consists in removing the husk (chaff) of the grains, the grains themselves, if empty or damaged, straw and dust.
The different types of machines used for these treatments mainly use sieving and aspiration processes.
Machines for the cleaning and selection of cereals
Wire cloths form the sieve that is inserted into the machine and that allows the selected cereals to move towards the outlet. While the product moves, the openings in the wire cloth allow air, blown upwards, to remove waste materials that are aspirated and conveyed to a separate outlet.
Costacurta can make different types of high-quality wire cloths, also according to the client’s specific requirements, that are high performing in scouring, polishing and drying machines or in cereal calibrating machines.
The wire cloths chosen by Costacurta for this application are normally made of square cross-section wires both in warp and weft.
Distinctive characteristics of the Costacurta metal cloths for these machines are:
- High crimping of warp and weft wires that improve the efficacy of cereal cleaning and selection.
- High quality of the material used and the production process
