In Field Dehusker - April 2016 Field Trials

Jump to main In Field Dehusker page.

The video below shows the dehusker working with the new non-bridging hopper. It has worked out quite well, though getting the feed rate of the hopper right was a bit tricky - too slow and it can’t keep up with incoming samples and leaves can build up, too fast and it can over-feed the dehusker leading to jamming.

Overall it bridges very rarely but it still jams with a stick occasionally, jam detection will probably be added in the near future so it can try reversing etc before shutting down and waiting.
