The singling system – Precise grain planting, higher yields
The singling system works by using the overpressure principle. The pressure pushes the grain against the nap holes in the rotating centralised singling disc so that they are driven round. As they rotate, the grains under pressure pass three scrapers which reliably ensure the singling of the grains on the drill holes. Excess grains are reliably stripped off, so that any doubles are effectively prevented. This is particularly important for the seed placement accuracy.
1. Rotating singling pressure chamber
2. Singling disc
The smart highlight:
Due to the thoughtful design of the centralised singling unit, the singling disc and the singling pressure chamber are firmly connected to each other.
The advantages of this layout are huge:
- The torque is clearly lower than in conventional systems
- The seal, which is otherwise subject to excessive wear, is not loaded
