Family Owned McKillip Seed Expands Capabilities with New Seed Production Line

Family-owned McKillip Seed was established in Wabash, Indiana, USA in 1934. As part of AG Venture Group, a network of independent dealers, they have access to some of the top-performing seed genetics, including corn, soybeans, wheat, and alfalfa. They approached Bratney Companies in 2019 to develop a turnkey design of a new seed line.

Cimbria’s product line continues to evolve and expand to include end-users further downstream.

One example is the Centricoater, designed and implemented for food processors that need to mix and blend unique ingredients while maintaining required cleanliness and sanitation.

Innovative features include carbide steel liners, an automated cleaning system, a heating system for maximizing drum temperature as product is added, and a larger drive system for higher-density bulk product. The design of this food-grade coater system has led to multiple orders for the upcoming year.

We set gaols together and the final decision was a combination of Delta Super Cleaner (with high screening efficiency and bottom air positive lifting fans for low density product) and SEA.CX color sorter (with high resolution cameras and a special design flow).

This innovative concept allowed the client to proceed with the project and meet their harvest deadline.
