Seed heat treating

Unit for heat treating seeds

If seed is infected, people often opt for heat treating the seeds. That involves the seeds being treated with a fixed temperature for a certain amount of time. This primarily concerns vegetable seeds such as cucumber, gherkin, sweet pepper and melon.

In the first hours of this process, a very high RH is generated. This is extracted using air valves. Ideal for this is the application of the seed drum that can also be used in other processes. A seed drum prevents mixing of seeds and saves on labour time.

The entire process can be controlled and managed with the applied computer controls (PLC) and touchscreen control terminal. Our heat treatment systems are all equipped with simple, accurate and reliable controls.
