Lab Shellers

Small & Medium Batch Sheller

AEC research shellers are known industry wide for efficient operation and gentle ear corn shelling. Germination testing shows no significant difference between hand shelling and the AEC batch shellers. Ear corn is shelled between a large central drum and rubber rollers which gently roll the corn off the cob. Once shelled, grain falls into a discharge hopper and cobs are removed through a discharge conveyor.

The machines are very user friendly and operate quietly. Single ears and batches can be shelled quickly and efficiently by a single person. There is virtually no carryover between samples and the sheller is easily cleaned out.
