Apparatus for determination of kernel weight distributions in cereal grains and for sorting kernels by weight

Regnér, Sigurd


A system for automatic kernel weighing was developed in 1989 in order to facilitate determination of the kernel weight distribution in cereal grains. A device for sorting the weighed kernels was developed and added to the system in 1990. The capacity is approximately 500 kernels per hour.
