Abstract

The concerns about ensuring optimal forerunner conditions that should be carried out before the mixture, and about actual sorting using tape separator, led to the experimentation of different active ensembles, inserted in technological flows of some combine harvester potato models and prototypes .
It was possible both the testing of various experimental solutions for homogenizing eccentric rollers dividers and of conveyor separators, in real conditions of continues supply with a homogeneous product, in which the percentage of tubers vary continuously, and the establishing of the actual variable areas of the functional arrangements (rotation, amplitudes, linear displacement speed, power flows, etc.) or of the main constructive parameters (form rollers, the eccentricity value '' e '', the crossing ''S" space, the active length '' I " of the active surface, the length of the transfer zone, the nature of the surface and the length of the lane dividers, the rake angle of the belt etc.).
Regardless of the assembly position of the combined system during the technological flow of the combine, an attempt was made, along with the constructive improvement of the components and the proper achievement sizing of the active surfaces for both homogeneous separator and headband sorter, in terms of interdependence between them, so as to ensure an appropriate fluency in their work, at a acceptable yield from the economic point of view.
