Authorized Seedburo Representative
Our Seedburo Boerner Divider is the standard divider for all federal, state, and local grain inspection offices. It is built to meet USDA-FGIS (GIPSA) specifications for official inspections and is referenced in the equipment handbook. The 34 divider is gravity operated. Sample is placed in the hopper and released by moving a slide gate located in the hopper throat. The product is evenly dispersed over a cone that has 38 pockets. The grain, after initial separation, is rejoined into two chutes which empty out of the bottom hopper.
The Boerner is calibrated to provide accurate splits of + /– 1% on a 1000g sample.
The Seedburo Boerner divider is made from brass and copper, which makes it rust resistant. The legs and supports are brass plated steel. The divider is supplied complete with two brass pans with handles for easy transport of divided samples. The 34 stands 31" high with 3" clearance under the spouts.
Seedburo Dockage Sieves are manufactured to comply with the specification of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. They are regularly used by federal grain supervision offices, state grain inspection departments and licensed grain inspectors. Most sieves are available in commercial or precision grades. All federal grain inspectors use precision sieves, but for most applications the commercial sieves will suffice. Sieves should be replaced when the perforations show wear, to maintain accurate results. Slotted sieves used in sizing barley and oats need to be replaced regularly since these grains are highly abrasive. A worn sieve lets too much material pass through, giving inaccurate results. Damaged or dented sieves should always be replaced. Here is a full chart(PDF,317KB) of recommended sieves by commodity.
The Seedburo Filling Hopper and Stand is designed for the accurate filling of volumetric cups for bulk density measurement. The 151 meets the specifications of the USDA-GIPSA for official inspection. The filling hopper is heavy gauge brass spinning with a slide gate valve for instant release of grain. The opening is a standard 1-1/4” diameter. Adjustment of the hopper can be made to the proper 2 inch height above any cup. The heavy cast base has wide spread legs that allow for the overflow pan and provide stability. Unit includes No. 64P plastic triangular sample pan.
Pint and quart cups and striking stick sold separately.
Seedburo Grain Probes The first essential step in grain grading is to obtain a correct and representative sample. Cars, trucks, wagons or barge loads should be sampled with a double tube probe in five or more places. Also used for plastics, Seedburo probes are made to conform to USDA specifications.
They are constructed from extra heavy gauge tubing for durable, time-tested sampling. All probes on this page have an outside diameter of 1-3/8", are of double-tube construction and have a heavy bronze point (unless otherwise stated). Openings are 3-3/8" L x 7/8" W.
Partitioned Grain Probe With Wooden Handle:
Partitioned grain probes are used by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and by all grain inspectors. There is a separate compartment for each individual opening. Samples from these probes can be emptied on a grain sampling canvas.
Open-Handled Grain Probe:
Open-ended probes without partitions are more convenient to empty and are widely used by the grain elevator operators for obtaining samples from truck loads. After sample is obtained, probe is held upright and sample is dumped from the handle.
Seedburo Thermometers come in a wide range of options from standard pocket glass style to bin-probe style that attach to your T-handle and extensions.
