Our sorting plant is located in Venado Tuerto Industrial Park, La Victoria, which counts with other services like Primary Customs Zone.
Classification and Calibration Plant was designed with machinery of last technology, recognized for work with high standards of quality and high capacity for work. It was designed to be versatile in processes so they can satisfy the different requirements of our customers.

The conditioning of the seed begins in a machine of pneumatic pre-cleaning. If the seed are received droughts it is stored in silos or big-bags, if they are received humid there are dry off in a Tumble dryer Cedar 5-12 , type mixed of trestle with gas burners specially designed for treatment of seeds with system modulante of control of flame and individual monitoring of temperature for each burner. This machinates they are two in one, allowing to dry lots of diverse sizes with a minimal quantity of 20 TN. His capacity of dried is of up to 44 TN per hour according to the need.

A second pre-cleaning is done by a Classification of flat screens with dual air. It then passes through a tire coach (Duo-aspirator type) and a separator discs these machines complete the removal of impurities, and stripping empty seeds.

The calibration of the seeds (thickness, diameter and length) is made by Carter Day Cylinders and Machinery Alveolar (Triels). The number of gauges and dimensions of the seeds that are composed, is made according to customer order.

Once finished he calibration process, each size passes through a densimetric table making a final phase in this case the specific weight of non-standard seeds. If required, the seed can be treated with dye, Insecticide, Fungicide seed and agrochemicals, the same is done with a rotary drum equipment and dosing by weight and sprayed by compressed air.

The versatility of the plant allows us to finish the process of classification in the stage that the client requires, for example pre-dried material and clean in Big-bags, seed bags big-calibrated with or without treatment or in bags ready for marketing.
