Satake Develops Second Generation AlphaScan Colour Sorter

The High Flow version of the AlphaScan II was designed following the request of Satake’s clients who wanted a machine capable of running in excess of 30 tonnes/hour. Following a six month in-line, on siteevaluation trial, the ASII160 High Flow or ‘HF’ machine went intoproduction in January 2008..jpg)

The first ASII160R HF unit was installed at UK grain processors, O.C. Jewers, to upgrade their AlphaScan I. The new ASII160R HF model processes wheat and barley at 30-35 tonnes/hour depending on input contamination and re-sort options. Company Director, Matthew Jewers,
is delighted with the new unit and the added capacity means he can process his crops twice as fast.

O.C. Jewers are one of the few remaining independent family run grain merchants in the UK. Established in 1865, they specialise in grain, seed and fertilisers. Having recently moved to a new purpose built site in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, they are ideally situated to reach grain exporting ports like Ipswich as well as the major maltings, feed compounders and flour mills in East Anglia.

Matthew Jewers says, "The addition of the AlphaScan II HF to our cleaning line strengthens our ability to deal with rejected loads and contract cleaning by removing ergot, weed seeds and foreign objects. The high flow model means that we can turn around trucks in the shortest possible time."

The versatility of the AlphaScan II makes it the machine of choice for mobile seed cleaning units, mills, grain stores and farms. It is supported in Australia and New Zealand by Satake’s offices, service and production facility in Sydney.
