Kernel Processors

Kernel Processors or Corn Cracker, modules consisting of two mill rolls with teeth pressed together by powerful springs, are frequently used when harvesting cereal crops like corn and sorghum to crack the kernels of these plant heads. Kernel processors or Corn Crackers are installed between the cutterhead and accelerator. In most forage harvesters, the KP/CC can be quickly removed and replaced with a grass chute for chopping non-cereal crops. The length of the chopped forage is important, and corn kernels and stalk sections need to be cracked open otherwise they pass through the animal undigested. The patented Shredlage® system from Claas® has been shown to create better silage. This is basically a pair of grooved rollers 2mm apart that rotate at different speeds so the chopped material that passes between them is torn and shredded. The two silver-coloured rollers that crack the corn kernels and stalks to create better silage.
