Flow of commodity (seed or grain) through the Clipper model 47 or 57:


1. Grain or seed is fed into the Roll Feed Hopper and passes through the suction chamber where the powerful suction fan removes all light, bulky waste.
2.  The commodity then passes through the scalper screen where the heavy, bulky waste is screened off.
3.  The commodity passes over the grading screen where the undersized kernels and dirt are screened out.
4.  The commodity enters into the air column of combined blast and suction where light, shrunken, and chunky grains are blown out. 
5.  The clean, full-sized kernels are delivered at the bottom of the cleaner.
