The automatic mealworm separator machine is the common screening equipment for sorting out the mealworm skins, fecula, dead and damaged larvae from a bulk of mealworm efficiently. This mealworm screening machine also named the Tenebrio Molitor sorting machine, which is a multi-functional screening machine specially used for sorting mealworm larvae. This mealworm separator machine combines the functions of a sealing sieve and inner fans to quickly and thoroughly sort out the feces, skin, mites and good larvae in the live mealworm and has no harm to the live mealworm.

Mealworms are the larval form of the mealworm beetle, Tenebrio Molitor. Due to its high protein content and high nutritional value, the mealworm always can be used for animal feed, like birds, chicken, fish and so on. Besides, high-quality mealworms also can be served as meals in many countries and it can also be processed for making nutritious mealworm powder. Nowadays, there are more and more farmers pay attention to set the mealworm breeding plant for feeding mealworms and selling the good mealworm larvae or further to process the mealworm powder.
Mealworm is an insect with high protein content, and it is generally used as the feed for economic animals. Mealworm has high nutritional value. Its larva contains 51% crude protein, its sputum contains crude protein 57%, its adult contains 64% crude protein, and mealworm contains 28.56% fat. It also contains various sugars, amino acids, vitamins, and enzymes, minerals (such as phosphorus, iron, potassium, sodium, calcium, etc.), which can be directly used as a high-protein fresh feed for carnivores. Because the price of the mealworm is cheaper than that of fish meal, many places use the mealworm to replace the fish meal as an animal protein to make a mixed feed. Moreover, feeding fish with this feed can speed up the growth and development of fish, enhance disease resistance, reduce breeding costs, and improve economic efficiency.
For enterprises or self-employed individuals who are breeding mealworms, the yellow mealworms should be regularly screened and separated from larvae and skins during the growth and reproduction to facilitate subsequent breeding and processing. However, the number of mealworms in each breeding box is tens of thousands.
If the traditional manual screening method is adopted, the dead insects are selected one by one, which will consume a lot of labor time, the efficiency is extremely low, and it is also prone to leakage. Without a professional screening machine, it is impossible to complete the screening of the size of the insect body and the separation and screening of the larvae powder. Therefore, an efficient mealworm separator machine is extremely needed for these mealworm farmers.
This electric mealworm sorting machine is composed of the feed hopper, machine frame, upper vibrating screen, speed regulating bellows, the larvae fecal collecting box, fans, struts, the lower vibrating screen, larvae and sputum separating screen, motors, soft brush rollers, mealworm skins collecting box, power indicator, motor control button, fan control button and so on.
Put bulk mealworm into the feed hopper of this mealworm screening machine, with the continuous vibration of the screen, the mealworm skins and fecula will be separated first. During the screening process, the soft brush rollers will push the mealworms forward and lay them evenly on the screen without damage. Then the next sorting steps like sieving out the dead larvae and damaged larvae as well as grading the mealworm into several levels according to the mealworm size will go on continuously.
