IQ – high quality grain sorting for laboratory use

BoMill’s proprietary, high precision, grain quality sorting technology makes it possible to identify, analyse and sort each individual kernel in a batch of grain. The IQ grain quality sorter is a laboratory machine with the capacity to analyze each kernel using NIT and sort them in accordance with their chemical composition into six quality fractions.

Grain sorting for product development

The IQ grain quality sorter can be used by plant breeders when looking for specific traits as protein, hardness, starch etc. It can also be used for improving the seed by sorting out diseased or infested kernels in order to have a sound and healthy lot of seeds used for propagation or official tests. The IQ grain quality sorter is ideal for the grain research lab or a product development lab in a flour mill or malt house or complement to the TriQ, where an easy and small scale way is needed to verify possibilities for doing a large scale sorting with the TriQ quality sorting technology.
