Premier Grain Length Grader

Premier Grain’s Length Graders utilze a single 17 or 23 inch diameter high density hardened cylinder. We use an environmentally and employee friendly carrbonitriding process to surface harden our cylinders to a minimum of 55 Rockwell C. Standard checks throughout the manufacturing process insure consistent quality and customer satisfaction. We at Premier Grain strive towards quality, product safety, and social obligations to our employees, our customers, and the environment.

Operating Process – Material is fed into a rotating cylinder, all material shorter in length than the indent pocket is lifted into a conveyor trough that runs through the center of the cylinder and is then discharged out the end. Material that is not lifted is conveyed out along the bottom of the cylinder to the discharge outlet at the same end.
