In the dynamic food safety realm, Acrylamide (AA) management is crucial. Monitored by manufacturers and regulators, the EU targets reducing AA in processed foods. Success demands credibility and innovation.

Types of seeds processed for seed processing machines

Seed processing machines can handle a wide variety of seed types, including field crop seeds, vegetable seeds, Alfalfa seeds, oilseed products, hybrid seeds, and grass seeds. Field crop seeds (ROW crops) are the primary crop seeds that are grown for consumption, such as wheat, corn, and rice. Vegetable seeds include tomatoes, peppers, and lettuce. Oilseed products are seeds used for the production of oils, such as sunflower seeds and soybeans. Hybrid seeds are the result of the cross-breeding of two different varieties of seeds, resulting in a new variety with desirable traits. Grass seeds are used for the production of turf or forage.

What are the different types of seed processing machines?

The design, features, and capabilities of seed processing machines can vary widely. At Royal Duyvis Wiener, our comprehensive product range can take your seed processing plants to the next level. Some machines are tailored to specific seed types or processing operations, while others are highly versatile and can handle a huge range of seed types and processing steps. Here are some examples of different types of seed processing machines:

  • Air seed cleaning machine: This type of machine uses air to remove unwanted materials from batches of seeds, such as dust, chaff, and debris. The air seed cleaning machine has a series of screens and fans that separate the lighter materials from the heavier seeds. 
  • Screen seed cleaning machine: This type of machine uses screens to separate unwanted materials and the discoloured seed from batches of seeds, such as discolored seeds, broken seeds, and foreign matter. The machine has a series of screens with different sized holes that allow the seeds to pass through while retaining the unwanted materials. 
  • Gravity separator: This gravity separator uses gravity to separate lightest seeds from heavier seeds, or liquids from seeds. The gravity separator has a series of inclined decks that allow the seeds to slide down while the lighter materials are carried away by air or water. 
  • Seed threshing machine: This type of machine is used to separate seeds from plant material, such as stems, pods, and leaves. The machine has a series of rollers, beaters, or blades that break the plant material and separate the seeds. 
  • Seed coating machine with integrated dryer: This machine is used to apply a coating to the seed surface, such as fertilizers, pesticides, or polymers. It has a rotating drum that applies the coating to the seed and a built-in dryer that dries the seed to prevent clumping. 
  • Rotary seed dryer: The rotary seed dryer is used to remove moisture from moist seeds, such as corn, soybeans, or sunflower seeds. The seed machine has a rotating drum that allows for even drying and prevents seed damage. 
  • Seed priming equipment: This last type of equipment is used to improve the seed germination performance by pre-soaking the seed in water or other solutions. The seed priming equipment has a series of tanks or trays that allow for controlled soaking and drying of the seed. Seed priming is a vital step in improving the quality of seeds, especially for crops that require quick and uniform germination.

Seed processing operations

Seed processing involves a range of essential operations that aim to enhance the quality of seeds. These operations encompass cleaning, covering, coating, disinfection, dressing, drying, threshing, and separating.

Cleaning is the process of eliminating unwanted materials from seed batches, including discolored or dirty seeds, or those affected by frost. This is achieved through the use of air screen seed cleaning machines or gravity tables. Covering of seeds is the application of a protective layer to seeds to shield them from damage during storage and transportation. Coating involves adding fertilizers or pesticides to the seed surface. Disinfection is the eradication of bacteria and fungi that may be present on the seed surface, using specialized seed disinfection machines. Dressing aims to enhance seed solubility, i.e., the seed’s ability to germinate and grow, through the use of seed dressing machines. Drying involves removing moisture from seeds, using rotary seed dryers or traditional drying methods. Threshing refers to the separation of seeds from plant material, using specialized threshing machines. Finally, separating involves segregating lighter seeds from heavier ones or liquids, using seed gravity separators or magnetic separators.

Features and benefits of seed processing machines

Seed processing machines offer a range of innovative and efficient features for seed processing, including improved seed quality, safe and sanitary operations, and versatility. With their large-scale production capacity, seed processing machines can handle various seed batch sizes, from small laboratory seeds to large-volume seed producers. Their horizontal product flow enables a continuous production process, while their stainless steel construction ensures sanitary operation and easy cleaning. Conveyor systems, bucket elevators, and pneumatic conveyors also allow for efficient material handling.

Seed processing machines also handle seeds gently, without damaging them, resulting in improved seed quality. The Mathway Elevator is a gentle product handling technique used to ensure seeds are moved safely from one process to another. The machines have a range of seed processing steps, from initial cleaning to final separation and proper storage, to ensure the highest quality of seeds.

Furthermore, seed processing machines prioritize safe and sanitary operations with their pyramid water-action feature, which prevents dust formation and reduces the risk of fire. We also have a magnetic seed separator machine to remove unwanted materials like metal from the seed. A dump hopper and dumper feature allow for safe and efficient dumping of large seed quantities.

The versatility of seed processing machines allows them to handle a broad range of seeds, making them suitable for use in various applications in the seed industry.

The impact of seed processing machines on the seed industry

Seed processing machines have greatly impacted the seed industry by improving seed quality and performance while reducing time and cost. Both large and small-scale seed producers have benefited from the efficiency and productivity of these machines. Additionally, seed processing machines have facilitated the development of new hybrid seed varieties with desirable traits such as resistance to pests and diseases, higher yields, and adaptation to different environmental conditions.

Conclusion

The seed processing machine is an innovative solution that has revolutionized the seed processing industry. It has made seed processing operations safer, more efficient, and more productive, allowing for the production of high-quality seeds in large quantities. Seed processing machines have a wide range of applications, from cleaning of seeds and coating to separating and storing seeds, and can handle a variety of seed types, from field crop seeds to grass seeds. At Royal Duyvis Wiener BV, we are committed to providing the highest quality seed processing machines to our clients, ensuring their success in the seed industry.
