The Carter Debearder was designed primarily to debeard barley, but has since become a very versatile machine. There is no appreciable loss of saleable weight of grains using the Debearder. The gain is accomplished by the removal of tips, awns and loose glumes which allow kernels to nest closer together.

The debearder operates by means of multiple steel beater arms rotating among similar stationary arms. The rotating bars are case hardened to resist wear.
They are factory installed on a 15 degree angle which serves to rub the commodity, as well as to convey it through the machine. The pitch of each arm is adjusted — where more or less threshing action is essential — merely by installing it on the opposite side of the central shaft, positioned to the desired angle.

  • Debeard barley – improve appearance of product
  • Break-up alfalfa pods, grass, clusters, flax balls, crested wheat, fescues, brome.
  • Hull “whitecaps” in wheat, subterranean clover
  • Clip oats – polish and raise test weight Used throughout the industry for various classes of oats
  • Seed Oats – making them easier to drill, easier and improving appearance.
    Market Oats – by clipping lightly test weight is increased and appearance is enhanced
    Poultry & Race Horse Oats – removing excess fibres, adding a polished lustre, increasing the product value
