Abstract

In the quantity of tubers and root crops obtained at harvest there are vegetable scraps, clods or adherent soil to tubers and unhealthy, sick and tainted tubers. According to some data, the overall content of the earth in fresh potatoes destined for sorting is harvested over a 10-20% by the weight of tubers and it can sometimes reach values of 30-40%. Before being used in different purposes: for storage, consumer, industrial, material, marketing, seed potato tubers or roots crops harvested with machines or combine are undergoing complex surgery cleaning, sorting, packing and conditioning.
The machines used for this purpose must provide sorting in fractions according to their mass, following the valid rules. Taking into account the variety of species and geometric shapes, the machines used for this purpose must ensure possibilities to adjust the main parameters of working bodies, ensuring accuracy and sort.
