The technological operations of preparing the wheat for grinding performed at the reception and storage in the silo, continue in the cleaning with the elimination of impurities and the conditioning of the wheat.  For  the study we used the SORTEX B DualVision Optical Sorter that recognizes  many color defects and foreign materials and has a size detection software  to eliminate nonconformities.  The device features RGB cameras of high r front and rear resolution that can be configured  to identify up to five color defects eliminating the  need for repeated springing for each color  defect. With the help of high-resolution cameras, you can scan an amount of 8 to / h from which are removed the elements that are not in the color range of   the category of  wheat from light brown - reddish brown - slightly dark brown. Numerous tests were performed in the laboratory, on different wheat mixtures, with different proportions of impurities / grains with defects and the efficiency was  high. Wheat can be selected grain by grain, and the  possibility of grinding non-compliant wheat clean atis very low.
