Sesame (Sesamum indicum) is a flowering plant in the genus Sesamum, also called benne. Numerous wild relatives occur in Africa and a smaller number in India. It is widely naturalized in tropical regions around the world and is cultivated for its edible seeds, which grow in pods.


Sesame seed is one of the oldest oilseed crops known, domesticated well over 3000 years ago. Sesamum has many other species, most being wild and native to sub-Saharan Africa. S. indicum, the cultivated type, originated in India. It tolerates drought conditions well, growing where other crops fail. Sesame has one of the highest oil contents of any seed. With a rich, nutty flavor, it is a common ingredient in cuisines across the world.

Before being made into tasty food, sesame seeds need to go through a series of "processes".


  • Harvest. Sesame is harvested 90-150 days after planting when the green color has disappeared from the stem and upper seed capsules.

  • Dry out the sesame seed pods. The harvested sesame is exposed to the sun in order to expel the water out and make the seed pods split.

  • Release the sesame seeds. Crack the pods open gently to release the seeds.

  • Sort. The seeds collected by the previous steps are always mixed with many pod pieces, small stones and other impurities. Also, some bad seeds or seeds in different colors should be removed. Usually, a sesame seed color sorting machine will be adopted to achieve the sorting job to get pure quality sesame seeds in the same color.


With the sesame color sorting machine, sesame seed sorting can be much more effective and efficient.


The working process of the sesame color sorting machine includes 5 main steps:


  1. Feed: pour sesame into the feeding hopper.

  2. Transit: the sesame goes through the material slideway and into the color sorting area.

  3. Identify: the sensor unit in the color sorter identifies the sesame seeds in different colors.

  4. Sort: the ejector shoots to remove the unqualified seeds and sort out the quality sesame seeds.

  5. Collect: the sesame seeds sorted out are collected in the accepted hopper.
