Are you getting 30+ percent kernel loss?

You shouldn’t be.

PROEX FOOD knows corn, including seed corn processing. Several of our engineers came from Hughes Equipment, and have decades of experience properly configuring an air cleaner and setting up the right husker bed for various seed varietals. 

We also have several proprietary technologies to improve your husking efficiency, decrease premature shelling and set you on the path to ultimate profitability

Fresh and processed sweet corn is a little different

Seed Equipment

Every product and line is a little different. Here are just a few of the more common items. We can help all the way through husking, offering solutions that mitigate premature shelling and improve your husking efficiency.

Vibrating infeed hopper to spread out and streamline you processes

Remove loose husk leaves and other light debris prior to processing

Look through each and every cob prior to husking. Grade every one, and remove defect product so you don’t waste any time and energy on it.


Have a robot load each cob onto a saw to remove any shanks and also to cut to near the first row of kernels.

This helps reduce husking time and re-husking, which helps mitigate product loss due to premature shelling

Our advanced, modern husker with digital-connected options, 1 3/4″ shafts and rolls to reduce flex and soldiering, and improve your husking.

This technology allows you to dial in your operation. Add another tool that helps your further mitigate your premature shelling.

As one of our customers recently put it: sounds modern, and like it will be much cheaper to operate and mantain.

Integrated, single point controls that manage your whole line. Simple HMI touchscreens and emergency stop buttons.
