Foreword
This Standard replaced GB/T 5494-1985 Inspection of Grain and Oilseeds ?€? Methods for Determination of Foreign Matter and Unsound Kernels.
Compared with GB/T 5494-1985, this Standard has the major changes as follows. --- Added the contents of Normative References;
--- Added the illumination requirements during the inspection operational process; --- Added the inspection method for the unsound kernels of rice;
--- Partially Modified the operation method and results calculation;
--- Deleted the calculation of pure kernel yield.
This Standard was proposed by State Administration of Grain.
This Standard shall be under the jurisdiction of National Technical Committee for Standardization of Grain and Oil.
Drafting organization of this Standard. Henan provincial Foodgrain and Cooking Oil Stall Food Product Quality Supervision and Inspection Station.
Participating drafting organization of this Standard. Grain and Oil Institute for Inspection and Supervision of Liaoning Province.
Chief drafting staffs of this Standard. Yin Chenghua, Cui Guohua, and Hu Jipeng. The historical edition replaced by this Standard is as follows.

Inspection of Grain and Oils
?€? Determination of Foreign Matter
and Unsound Kernels of Grain and Oilseeds
1 Scope
This Standard specifies the apparatus, illumination requirements, sample preparation, operation methods and results calculation for inspection of foreign matter and unsound kernels of grain and oilseeds.
This Standard is applicable to the determination of foreign matter and unsound kernels of grain and oilseeds.
2 Normative References
The provisions in following documents become the provisions of this Standard through reference in this Standard. For dated references, the subsequent amendments (excluding corrigendum) or revisions do not apply to this Standard, however, parties who reach an agreement based on this Standard are encouraged to study if the latest versions of these documents are applicable. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document applies.

3 Apparatus
3.1 Balance with sensibility of 0.01g, 0.1g, 1g.
3.2 Grain sieve.
3.3 Electric selector.
3.4 Sample splitter and sample splitting plate.

4 Illumination Requirements
The illumination conditions during the operation process shall meet the requirements of GB/T 22505.
5 Sample Preparation
The specimen for inspecting the foreign matter can be divided into large and small specimen; the large specimen is used for inspecting the large specimen foreign matter including the large foreign matter and passed sieve material of absolute sieve; while the small specimen indicates small amount of specimen separated from the one inspected the large specimen foreign matter; it is used for inspecting the foreign matter with approximately the same size and shape of the grain.
Separately take the specimen according to the provisions of GB 5491 to the specimen amount specified in Table 1.

Medium kernel. rice, wheat, sorghum, red bean, cottonseed, etc. About 500 About 50 Large kernel. soybean, corn, pea, sunflower seed, small broad
bean, etc. About 500 About 100
Super-large kernel. peanut fruit, kernel, castor seed, paulownia
seed, tea seed, shiny-leaved yellow horn, large broad bean, etc. About 1000 About 200 Others. inspection of barnyard millet with husk and paddy in the
sweet potato chips and rice About 500~1000
6 Operation Procedures
6.1 Inspection of foreign matter and unsound kernels in the general grain and oilseeds
6.1.1 Screening
6.1.1.1 Electric selector method. use the sieve layer stipulated in the quality standard to cover (microporous sieve is above, the mini-porous sieve is below, covered with sieve bottom); take the specimen according to the provisions to put onto the sieve, cover the sieve cap; put it onto the electric selector; turn on the power, turn on the switch; the sieve automatically turn to left and right for 1min, respectively (110r/min~120r/min); stand for a moment after screening; separately pour the screen overflow and screen underflow onto the analysis disk. The grains stuck in the middle of the sieve belong to screen overflow.
6.1.1.2 Hand sieving method. cover the sieve layer as per the method stipulated in 6.1.1.1; pour into the specimen, and cover the sieve cap. Then put the selector onto the glass plate or smooth desktop; use both hands to screen in the clockwise and counterclockwise directions at the speed of 110 times/min ~ 120times/min for 1 min, respectively. The screening range shall be controlled with sieve diameter expanding 8cm~10cm. The operation after screening is the same as 6.1.1.1.
6.1.2 Large-specimen foreign matter inspection
From the average sample, separately take specimen according to the provision of Clause 5 to the large specimen amount (m) specified in Table 1, accurate to 1g; screening for twice according to the screening method specified in 6.1.1 (super-large kernel of grain and oilseeds shall be screened for 4 times); then select the screen overflow large foreign matter and screen underflow, and weigh them together (m1), accurate to 0.01g (large foreign matter of wheat shall be selected from the 4.5mm sieve).
6.1.3 Small-specimen foreign matter inspection
From the specimen inspecting the large-specimen foreign matter, separately take the specimen according to the provisions of Clause 5 to the small- specimen amount (m2) specified in Table 1; when the small-specimen amount is no greater than 100g, accurate to 0.01g; when small-specimen amount is greater than 100g, accurate to 0.1g; pour into the analysis disk; select the foreign matter according to the provisions of quality standard; weigh (m3), accurate to 0.01g.
6.1.4 Minerals inspection
If there is minerals indicator (excluding the rice) specified in the quality standard, select the minerals from the separated small-specimen foreign matter; weigh (m4), accurate to 0.01g.
6.1.5 Unsound kernel inspection
When inspecting the small-specimen foreign matter, select the unsound kernel according to the provision of quality standard; weigh (m5), accurate to 0.01g. 6.2 Inspection of foreign matter and unsound kernel in the rice
6.2.1 Total mass inspection of bran powder, minerals and foreign matters Separately take 200g (m?€?) of specimen according to the provisions of Clause 5, accurate to 0.1g; place into the round-hole sieve with diameter 1.0mm for 2 times; screen as per the screening method specified in 6.1.1; after screening, tap the sieve gently, so that the bran powder can fall off on the bottom of the sieve. After all the specimens are screened, brush off the bran powder remained on the sieve layer, weigh together (m1?€?), accurate to 0.01g. Pour the screen overflow into the analysis disk (the kernels stuck in the middle of the sieve hole belong to screen overflow). Separately select the minerals from the specimen inspecting the bran powder, and weigh together (m2?€?), accurate to 0.01g. Select the paddy kernel, barnyard millet with husk and other foreign matters, weigh together (m3?€?), accurate to 0.01g.
6.2.2 Inspection of barnyard millet with husk and paddy kernel
Separately take 500g of specimen according to the provisions of Clause 5, accurate to 1g; select the barnyard millet with husk (X) and paddy kernel (Y); calculate their contents, respectively.
6.2.3 Unsound kernel inspection
Separately take the specimen according to the provisions of Clause 5 to the small- specimen amount (m4?€?) specified in Table 1 (the amount of small-specimen of rice is the same as the crude grain), accurate to 0.01g; pour the specimen into the analysis disk; select the unsound kernels according to the provisions of grain and oilseeds quality standard, and weigh (m5?€?), accurate to 0.01g.
