    Description

    The Westrup brush machine can be used as the first step in the conditioning process of seeds. Even though there are various sizes of the machine, only the laboratory model (LA-H) is described. The machine is designed to separate seed from pods or flowers, dewing tree seed, remove appendages or hairs from seed, split twin seed, de-lint cotton seed, scarify hard coated seed, and polish seed.
