A SIEVE WILL HELP

A SIEVE WILL HELP

From time immemorial came to us GRID (as defined by the famous Russian language dictionary by V. dal — “all non-continuous thing with skvoznoy, allowing spans”) and a SIEVE (“drum with mesh bottom for proshivki what the large sieve: a sort of box with a perforated bottom” — ibid.). Entering as an integral part of many machines and mechanisms, they do not seem to lose its relevance in its original form. Moreover, complement each other, gaining new qualities, as it is convincingly shown a thematic compilation of submissions received from Ukraine.

WHEN SORTING TUBERS…
 
If you want to save time on grading grown potatoes, make a simple grid table. As a countertop, use a low, pre-nailed wood box size 1500x800x25 mm. the Bottom run of the longitudinal rails with a 30-40-mm intervals for the first half of the table with 70 mm for the second.
 
The drawer-countertop install wood-poles at a slight angle. It is advisable to frequent the bottom half were above rare. Then small potatoes, falling between the cracks, will otsortirovyvaya at the top of the table and big at the bottom.
Small-scale mechanization monotonous and tedious labour, that is, there is. And the costs of time, effort and money on it is minimal. Perhaps, the only drawback with this sorting table — diseased and damaged tubers have to select manually.
 
At this sieve sorting potatoes is spore
At this sieve sorting potatoes is spore:
 
1 — block of wood-bearing; 2 — lattice with two types of screening intervals (rail, dimensions and number space); 3 — frame; 4 potato; 5 — tank for graded tubers
 
Simple

Simple “broom-sieve” at harvest yields apples:
 
1 — bushing (water pipe 3/4″, length — location); 2— steel rod; 3 — winding (tapes 1-2)

 
…AND THE FRUIT PICKING
 
To cut steel pipe 3/4″ weld a few 250-mm steel bars, wrap them with electrical tape to avoid damage to fruit at harvest, and attach the resulting “whisk” on a wooden pole. Bars apart slightly, and guided by the sample sizes of collected apples or pears. Branches with leaves will pass through this kind of sieve, and the fruit — to stay in it.
 
Fixture finish. Instructions to it is not required: sum up “the broom-sieve” to ripe fruit and sharply raising the pole, pluck.
