AlphaScan II

Next Generation...Low Cost, High Capacity Colour Sorting for Grain Processing

The Satake AlphaScan II is the very latest Colour Sorter from Satake. 

The original AlphaScan range was introduced to the market in 2004 and quickly gained favour in wheat, barley, rye, rice and other cereal/pulse processing industries. 

The AlphaScan II is the next generation of 'low cost - high capacity' sorting from Satake.
The AlphaScan II is particularly suitable for ergot, foreign grain and stone removal from wheat, black tip removal from durum and the recovery of good grain ejected by mechanical separators.It also has applications in the removal of pink tinted fusarium damaged wheat. 

Processors of other products such as rice, beans and pulses also benefit from the machine's high capacity at low cost.

- Compact small footprint, low cost, high capacity colour sorter
- High-speed, digital signal processing technology
- Multiple high-resolution CCD cameras front and rear
- Self monitoring with auto calibration during operation
