|Rice color sorting machines are used in rice mills during the processing of rice. It is the last stage before the packing of processed rice. First of all, the rice is milled in the milling|
plant, taken through the paddy boiling unit, drier, destoner, husker, huller/sheller and then the produced final rice is taken to the color sorter machine. In this stage, the rice is scanned using a machine that has a line scan camera. The moment the camera detects any color defects, the camera instructs the ejectors fitted in the machine to open the nozzle. The nozzle is connected to valves containing compressed air. This air is then used to shoot out the color defected material from the input rice. The types of defects in rice are: black tipped, chalky, yellow, mouse droppings, immature grain, etc.
