Colour Sorters

Flaman Grain Systems has a variety of colour sorters to help you separate unwanted material, such as ergot from wheat.

Satake Optical Colour Sorters


Satake’s high capacity, cost-effective, full colour precision optical sorter series is ideal for bulk agricultural products such as wheat, lentils, peas, and other small grains. The RNEZS Series sorter is able to consistently and effectively sort these product types at high capacity-up to 3.5 tons per hour per chute-for common grains. Secondary and/or tertiary resort capability is also option if desired.


The RNEZS is powered by patent-pending Satake software assuring quick set-up and hassle-free operation. A simple user interface, similar to a smart phone or tablet with touch and flick operation., offers the operator quick adjustments to a number of settings and sensitivities.


The next step in the RNEZ series. This model is upgraded from the RNEZ with higher camera resolution, larger touch screen, option for 6 to 10 chutes, as well as shape sorting capability.
