What is a rice color sorter?

Before cooking the rice, wash the rice several times with clean water. Why do you do that? Naturally, it is to remove the impurities inside. Attentive friends will also notice that the previous rice contained a lot of impurities and needed to be washed a lot. Now rice basically does not need to be washed. What is going on here?

There are fewer impurities in the rice, thanks to a magical machine: the color sorter.

Sunrise rice CCD color sorter  is a new multi-purpose color sorter, which offers color selection work for sorting rice, paddy seed, boiled rice, par-boiled rice, basmati rice, long grain rice, pearl rice, Thai rice, etc. Color sorter can separate deep yellow, light yellow, black, chalky, pinpoint, stone, plastic, stripe inside riice with very high sorting effect. And combined with size and shape sorting, our color sorter also can rejected our broken rice fro whole.

Maintenance of rice channel of rice color sorter

When cleaning the rice channel, please do not use hard objects or sharp objects to touch the rice channel to prevent scratching the rice channel. For surface dust, you can use an air gun to clean the dust.The dust sticking to the rice path can be wiped with a soft cotton cloth, or wiped with a cotton cloth wrapped in smooth chopsticks that have been used for a long time.

Maintenance and replacement of cleaning brush

The cleaning brush must be replaced and calibrated regularly, usually three times a month, otherwise, the cleaning quality will be affected. If there is a large accumulation of glass dust in the sorting room, it will affect the color selection effect.

Whether there is dust in the glass of the sorting room

There is dust on the glass of the sorting room. You can use a cotton cloth to wipe it or dip a little alcohol on the cotton cloth to wipe it. Before wiping, you can remove the rice selection plate of the color sorter for easy wiping. It must be done when the air valve is closed.

Touch screen maintenance When cleaning the touch screen of the color sorter, you can use a soft cotton cloth to wipe lightly, or use an air gun to blow the surface dust. Do not use the air gun to blow directly on the surface of the touch screen to avoid excessive force on the surface to damage the touch screen.
