Grain sorting

Sorting is an important step in the processing of grain. In this process step the product that has been cleaned in the classic manner is separated into fractions that are as homogeneous as possible to optimally prepare the product for further processing in husking machines.

Grain sorting machines

Through sorting, the husking machines can be adjusted perfectly to the homogeneous fraction obtained, and thus they can positively influence the husking result and increase the yield.


Different sorting machines are used for grain classification, such as the sorting cylinder or the plansifter. In addition to product fractionation prior to husking, there is also the table separator that is only used after husking to separate husked kernels from unhusked kernels. The control screen is used at the end of the flaking process for separation of the cereal flakes into three fractions - fines, end product (main fraction) and oversized particles.

The flexible sorting specialist is mainly used for classification of grain. In this process the grain, predominantly oats, barley and sunflower seeds, is sorted according to its respective circumference (thickness).

The plansifter sorts oats, barley, rye, and other grain types that can be cut. In addition it is used after cleaning for classification of millet and buckwheat, for example.

At the end of the flaking process the control sieve is used as standard equipment for final control for all types of cereal flakes. This so-called final screening occurs after the flakes have been dried and cooled.
