Cleaners

Kongskilde grain cleaners offer significant advantages to agricultural producers by efficiently removing impurities such as dust, chaff, seeds, and small stones from harvested grain. 

This thorough grain cleaning process enhances the quality of the grain, ensuring it meets market standards and reduces the risk of contamination. By investing in a reliable grain cleaner, farmers can achieve higher yields, better storage conditions, and increased market value, all while minimizing waste.

The Basics of Grain Cleaning

Grain cleaning is a critical process in agriculture, aimed at removing unwanted materials such as dirt, small stones, seeds, and plant residues from harvested grains. By using a grain cleaner, farmers can ensure their crops are free of impurities that can affect quality and safety during storage. 

This process not only helps in enhancing the market value of the grains but also prevents potential problems like infestations and spoilage. Whether you’re a seasoned farmer or new to the field, understanding the benefits of grain cleaning is key to achieving a successful harvest.

Why Effective Grain Cleaning is Essential for Quality Control

After threshing, grains are contaminated by impurities: dirt, small pebbles, plant and insect waste, seed cases, weed seeds, etc. These impurities hinder drying and safe storage operations, making them longer and more costly. Indeed, it would be not only costly but may also waste time, effort, and money on drying the impurities along with the grain.

These impurities lower the quality of the product and are also a focal point for potential infestation during storage. Using a grain cleaner can significantly mitigate these risks by efficiently removing these unwanted materials. This results in higher quality grain and even improved quality of feed for animals.

Cleaning and separation

Grain cleaning may also be accompanied by sorting of the products according to quality, which is indispensable before storage, marketing, or further processing of the products.

Whether you need to grade by weight or size, separate by type, or clean prior to transport or storage, Kongskilde has numerous flexible and customizable cleaning solutions (along with expert guidance) that make the decision an easy one.
