Cleaning, Conveying & Screening Wheat
In 10,000 years, the earth’s population has doubled ten times, from less than ten million to more than six billion. Most of the calories that made that population increase possible have come from three plants: corn, rice and wheat. The oldest, most widespread and, until recently, biggest of the three crops is wheat – its story is the story of humanity. The first product in our line, the Sutton Gravity Separators, were cleaning wheat almost a century ago.
In 2016, world production of wheat was 749 million tons, making it the second most-produced cereal after corn. Now, Slipstick Conveyors move puffed wheat, shredded wheat, wheat flakes and Texas Shaker Vibrating Screens screen/size wheat.
