Vega – efficient cleaning, high throughput rate, and low energy consumption.
With its new solution for cleaning and classifying of wheat, rye, oat, rice, maize,
and barley Bühler combines several advantages in a single machine: a high
throughput rate, a compact and robust design as well as an easy exchange of
sieves. Furthermore, the machine has a considerably lower energy consumption
than comparable solutions on the market. For further information please visit
