When calibrating grain, the operator can independently make adjustments to the quality of the output grain material by moving the rotary shutters, as well as by smoothly changing the impeller power. It should be borne in mind that with an increase in the air flow, the bulk of the material shifts to the fifth chute, thereby increasing the amount of material entering the forage. If it is necessary to obtain a calibrated grain material of a higher class, it is necessary to carry out the calibration operation in two times.
Using rotary shutters allows you to select grain that has such a weight (size) at which it falls on the border of the separated fractions, and could get into any of the nearby trays. This technique allows the “borderline” grain to be sent for re-calibration.
All trays have the ability to dump material on both the left and right side of the machine, which makes it possible to exclude the ingress of intermediate fractions into the calibrated grain.
In case of severe contamination of the material, it is necessary to calibrate in several stages, namely, first select the sowing and large varietal grain from the second – third tray, dropping 4-6 tray into the common pile, and then re-calibrate the grain from the resulting pile.
In the calibration mode, regardless of the operator’s actions, light impurities are also carried away from the source material when it passes the separation chamber, that is, cleaning occurs simultaneously with calibration.
The machine is equipped with a set of sensors that allow working in a semi-automatic mode, then an automatic machine, namely, by monitoring the amount of material in the bunker, the machine independently turns on and off the feeding conveyor, as well as the automatic movement of the complex. It should be borne in mind that for the correct operation of the complex in automatic mode, the operator must adjust the sensors for each type of raw material.
Any manipulations with rotary shutters for different types of grain, different moisture content, different contamination, and class are individual, and are selected by the operator, depending on the task.
Note that changing the opening angle of the tray can significantly improve the quality of the calibration.
