Assuring the quality of seed and grain in the production process is extremely challenging. Our sorting systems reliably remove contaminants such as stones − and sort various types of grain and seed entirely automatically.
For decades, Sesotec has specialized in automatic sorting systems. Our systems designed to automatically detect contaminants and sort seed and grain ensure consistently high quality and maximum customer satisfaction. Sesotec sorting systems even handle challenging tasks, such as removing ergot, with the highest degree of reliability and minimal loss of material. The smart optical systems are far superior in this regard to other solutions, such as specific gravity separators. From sorting different types of grain, such as barley and wheat, to removing impurities and contaminants, Sesotec has the right solution for you.
Why is sorting important with regard to seed and grain?
Seed companies aim to produce high-quality seed. Modern processing technologies and utmost diligence ensure that the products are manufactured with the highest level of quality.Within the scope of quality assurance, it is necessary to remove contaminants and eliminate extraneous materials. The first step usually entails the use of separating tables for mechanical sorting to remove larger contaminants, such as stones. Optical sorting systems are then deployed to handle more complex sorting tasks, such as removing contaminants and extraneous grains.
What purpose do Sesotec product inspection and sorting systems serve?
The inspection and sorting of seed and grain mainly target impurities, contaminants and quality issues. From contaminant detection to optical sorting, our systems function according to a very large number of criteria and thereby ensure safe inspection and sorting.
Benefits of Sesotec contaminant detectors and sorting systems:
What kinds of contamination and quality issues could occur?
Potential contamination and quality issues with regard to seed and grain can occur during harvest or processing (e.g. transport during storage). However, carelessness on the part of operating staff can also result in contamination.
Examples of contaminants include the following:

Sesotec possesses sound expertise across a wide range of technology. Thanks to our carefully considered combination of sensors and software, we achieve outstanding results when it comes to sorting and product inspection. The systems function with the following sensors, among others:
Our White Paper informs you about the criteria that
need to be considered when you choose machines and systems for the
protection against contaminants and for metal detection.
Our White Paper describes the development of technologies in
contaminant detection in the food industry.
In this White Paper we show you the key benefits and
diverse application possibilities of x-ray technology and how these systems help
you to ensure your product quality.
