The Seedburo 801 Count-A-Pak®

The Seedburo 801 Count-A-Pak® incorporates new microprocessor technology with the time proven reliable vibratory feeder bowl system. The 801 is a highly versatile and accurate combination seed counter. Operating functions include:

TOTALIZE: Registers a complete count on a pre-weighed or volumetrically measured portion.

BATCH COUNT: Accurately counts a predetermined number of seeds in a single batch.

REPEAT BATCH: Allows for the continual repetition of a single batch count.

MULTIPLE BATCH: Can be set to count numerous batches with different seed counts and quantities. The membrane touch panel enables the user to program the 801 while visually keeping track of the seed count; batch or group count; sensitivity and speed settings. All functions or adjustments are controlled from this user-friendly panel. The microprocessor controls also allow for a bag detection system that prevents double filling of bags or spilling when a bag is not present. The 801 control console is adaptable for either a 7″ or 10″ feeder base. Serial data interface capabilities allow for direct printer attachment, data logger or computer interface. The optional foot switch gives total hands free operation.

Electromagnetic vibratory action moves the seeds upward along the track. Selective devices in the bowl arrange the seeds into a single file, one layer deep, before they are discharged. As a seed travels down the chute, it is detected by a microprocessor controlled sensor. Unlike “electric-eye” counters, this sensor sensitivity is adjustable. This means that chaff or other undesirable matter will not be counted. Quick disconnect feature allows for easy and complete clean-out of the feeder bowl. The 801 is available with a 7″, 10″ or 10″ shallow feeder bowl to accommodate seed sizes from small vegetable to large grain.

COUNT-A-PAK SEED TOTALIZER

COUNT-A-PAK SEED TOTALIZER Counts Seeds in a Given Weight or Volume Quickly and Accurately Determine seed count per pound or thousand kernel weights with the Count-A-Pak® Model 77. The speed of the feeder is adjusted by a built-in control on the feeder base. The 2″ LCD readout, displays total count of the seed which is easily read under most lighting conditions. The Model 77 has a plug in circuit board that can be equipped with 7″, 10″ or 10″ shallow feeder bowl. SPECIFICATIONS:

Canola/Rapeseed Counting Paddle

The Canola/Rapeseed Counting Paddle does ‘quick counts’ of canola seeds and is an aid for detection of damaged seed (“Distinctly Green Seeds”) or “Heat Damaged Seeds”.

The Paddle is used with masking tape and a wallpaper roller to crush seeds. The 9″ L x 1¼” W paddles are made of acrylic and are pre-drilled with 100 depressions. When used for damage detection, a 10g portion is hand picked to determine content of visibly damaged seeds. Remaining portion is analyzed with the aid of the Canola Paddle. Sample is poured over paddle until each depression fills with seed. A piece of masking tape is placed evenly over the top of the paddle (enclosing the seeds). Remove tape, with seeds stuck to it, and lay face up on counter. Small wallpaper roller crushes the seed. Make one pass of the roller, under firm pressure. Sample is then ready for visual inspection of damage seed “distinctly green” in color. Minimum of 5 samples should be crushed. If indication of “heat damage” is present, 5 more crushes should be made.
