The Model 30 Burrows Seed Cleaner and Grader

This is a small-sized seed cleaner and grader, suitable for seed testing or cleaning small lots of seed. It has a small chaff or scalping screen on top and large cleaning and grading screens below. Standard equipment includes any four chaif-grading screens and any four double-grading screens. A suction fan removes chaff, and die screens remove large particles and damaged seeds. Its capacity for wheat and other grains is 20 to 30 bushels per hour. For clover and other seeds, it can process 2 to 10 bushels per hour. Shipping weight of this cleaner is 145 pounds. The screens weigh extra. This unit can be operated by hand or a 14 h.p. motor. A bagging attachment is available.

Model 75 Burrows Seed and Grain Cleaner and Grader

This unit has a capacity of 60 to 75 bushels per hour when cleaning and grading wheat or other heavy grains, and 10 to 25 bushels per hour when cleaning and grading clover and other lighter seeds. This is a four-screen machine which has two separate shoes with two screens in each shoe. The scalping screens remove sticks, stems, pods, and other large particles; the grading screens clean the seed or grain and separate the cleaned seed into two grades when two screens are used. A high-speed multivane fan removes chaff and other light material. The Model 75 Burrows requires a i/2 h.p. electric motor for use without an elevator. When a charging elevator is used with the cleaner, a % h.p. electric motor is needed.

Burrows Heavy-Duty Double-Spiral Separator

This machine separates anything round from anything that is not round, according to the manufacturer. Vetch, peas, soybeans, pepper, rape, turnip, coriander, milo, mustard, and other round seeds are easily separated from wheat, oats, barley, fiax, corn, screenings, rodent chips, etc. No power is needed. The Double Spiral separates by gravity to remove round seeds from oblong grains, screenings, or weeds.

The machine consists of two units of spirals which feed from the same hopper and deliver together at the bottom. At the top is a large hopper with an adjustable feed plate for each unit of spirals. The seed leaving the hopper runs over a cone divider which spreads the seed evenly to each of the five Rights in each unit. Going down the flights, the round kernels travel at a much faster rate of speed than the other kernels. Their momentum increases until they run over the edges of the spirals, drop to the housing spiral and roll into a tray at the bottom of the machine. A single discharge chute is standard unless the double chute is specified. The double chute separates the round seed into two grades, portions of which can be controlled by adjusting levers.

The unit is built from galvanized steel, is set in a strong steel frame, and measures 77 inches high, 42 inches wide, and 22 inches deep. Its capacity is 10 to 50 bushels per hour (30 to

35 bushels per hour for soybeans), .Shipping weight: 200 pounds. Available options include self-cleaning hopper, laboratory sample spiral (single, 5 feet by 20 inches, with two flights), heavy-duty single spiral (20 inches diameter).

Spiral Grain Cleaner Model 2825

As the screen and spiral rotate in this model, the spiral moves the grain over the screen. Because of the movement of the screen and spiral and the horizontal construction of the machine, the grain flow is completely controlled and distributed more effectively than in an operation depending on gravity. The spiral in the grain cleaner assures that the grain will be carried over the largest possible screen area. The result is thoroughly cleaned grain that dries faster to help eliminate spoilage. This cleaner is belt-driven for economical and reliable power. Easily interchangeable screens are available for most grains. The cleaner was designed for easy maintenance, and performance-tested to insure best results. Model 2825 is 24 inches in diameter and 6 feet long, with a capacity of 1,200 to 1,500 bushels per hour (for dry corn). It requires a I h.p. motor.

mature kernels drop through this lower screen, and the clean grain discharges in the form of a curtain through the Bottom Air Blast Column. The bottom air is adjusted to remove any remaining lightweight trasii or underweight kernels. This air separation is selective because the fan is precisely adjustable over a wide range.

Lee Grain Cleaner

Lee's Model A Cleaner uses a waterless cleaning process, tumbling each grain kernel between a rotating stone wheel and a stationary wheel. Each kernel is polished, scrubbed, and the outer hull scoured away by the rubbing action of the stones, without disturbing the germ. Following the dry scrubbing phase, the grain passes through an air separator which removes fine particles of dirt, dust, chaff, and bee's wings, or loose hulls. With the cleaner properly adjusted, dirt and foreign matter amount to about 2 percent of the final product by weight. The cleaner uses a dual voltage y4 h.p. single-phase motor to clean 150 to 200 pounds of grain per hour.

Grain Cleaner

The AVI Grain Cleaner is patterned after the simple, efficient fanning mill cleaner-separator that was common around the turn of the century. This mill is designed for hand operation but may also be driven by any external power source. In operation, the threshed wheat is poured into the top hopper and is shaken through a series of screens which separate the grain from the dirt and chaff. The reciprocating action is accomplished by a cam and pitman arm attached to the camshaft. The fan itself is driven
