Wheat seeds

Wheat (Triticum spp.) is a cereal grain, originally from the Levant region of the Near East and Ethiopian Highlands, but now cultivated worldwide. In 2007 world production of wheat was 607 million tons, making it the third most-produced cereal after maize (784 million tons) and rice (651 million tons). In 2009, world production of wheat was 682 million tons, making it the second most-produced cereal after maize (817 million tons), and with rice as close third (679 million tons).

Wheat is grown on more land area than any other commercial crop and is the most important staple food for humans. World trade in wheat is greater than for all other crops combined. Globally, wheat is the leading source of vegetable protein in human food, having a higher protein content than either maize (corn) or rice, the other major cereals. In terms of total production tonnages used for food, it is currently second to rice as the main human food crop and ahead of maize, after allowing for maize's more extensive use in animal feeds.

Wheat grain is a staple food used to make flour for leavened, flat and steamed breads, biscuits, cookies, cakes, breakfast cereal, pasta, noodles, couscous and for fermentation to make beer, other alcoholic beverages, or biofuel.
Wheat is planted to a limited extent as a forage crop for livestock, and its straw can be used as a construction material for roofing thatch. The whole grain can be milled to leave just the endosperm for white flour. The by-products of this are bran and germ. The whole grain is a concentrated source of vitamins, minerals, and protein, while the refined grain is mostly starch.

Our solutions for this section:

DFM
The loss in weight feeder DFM is intended to accurately measure and control the outgoing flow of free-flowing granular products.
CSE
The CSE has the same concept of the CSEp but smaller sizes, it is intended to be use for monitoring of bulk product flow. The use of 2 weighing hopper alternately feed by a diverter switch feeder allow to never stop incoming product flow.
TSE
The TSE machine is intended to measure flow of granular and floury products.
GWG
Suitable for low production rate. It is ideal for free-flowing materials, such as plastic granules, granular fertilizer, grain, rice, sugar, cereals, small stones, etc.
SBS
Suitable for average and high production rate. SBS is based on simplex or duplex net weight bagging scales and it is designed to handle both, granular and powder products.
ABF is suitable for both granular and powder products. His capacity is ranging from 4 to 10 bags/min. It can handle bags of different material, even the most difficult one such as woven PP bags.
ABP120 is suitable for fine coarse granular FREE FLOWING products. it can run up to 20 bags/min.It can handle bags of different material, even the most difficult one such as woven PP bags. A special execution for aggressive environment and products is also available.
