How Fast Do We Grade Your Seed?

Key takeaways in this video

0:13 Cleaning capacity

1:10 How many products can be processed


Hi! It’s Kurt, Walco Seed Cleaning. Another question I get asked is, how long is it going to take to clean my grain?

0:13 Essentially, that’s how many ton an hour can we do through the machines. Basically, we’ve got two machines that we use for seed grading. We got a combination of other machines to help us clean as well. We’ll show you in another video.

0:26 Predominantly, two machines, the one behind me you can see in the video, that’s our semi cleaner. That one has a capacity of generally around about 15 ton an hour on doing seed work. We can harvest clean then we can run it through it at about 20 ton an hour.

0:45 The other machine, the Westruck, we call it, that one has a capacity of about 23 tons an hour for harvest cleaning and doing seed work. We generally run around 15, 16, 17 ton an hour depending on the sample. Both of them do a good job. We pickle at the same time about the very end of the process for doing your seed.

1:10 We can apply a combination of pickles as well, not just the one product but anything up to about five even six products we have at some stages. Basically, if you work on that sort of capacity, the cleanout time is generally around about probably 10 minutes roughly, 15 minutes, depending if we need to change grains between – that’s going from one silo to the next.

1:36 Generally, on average if you’ll allow 10-12 tons per hour doing wheat and barley, that’s sort of the time speed that we’re working on.

If you need any more information or want a booking your seed grading, feel free, give us a call, number’s on the page here and check us out on Twitter and Facebook also. I’ll catch you later and have a good season.
