automatic shelling machine / for grain
F. H. SCHULE Muehlenbau
In addition to the shelling of wheat, rye and barley, with a conical shelling machine also fungal infestation on the grain surface can be removed. Via a feed screw, the product is fed into the working chamber of the machine where a conical stone set on a hollow shaft is surrounded by a conical screen basket. The outlet of the working chamber is completed by a plate the counter-pressure of which can be variably adjusted by springs. One special aspect worth mentioning is the gap adjustment between the whitening stone and the screen basket. By adjusting the height of the stone set, the distance and thus the intensity can be adjusted variably, even during operation.
The grain passes through this working chamber and is polished by the stone set. Depending on the intensity, the surface is polished to remove impurities, or the husk of the grain is removed. The removed husks are sucked off via the screen basket.
