Detox™, the healthy solution for a poisonous problem
Aflatoxin is one of the most toxic substances known to man and can cause serious illness and health problems. The Detox™ revolutionary sorting system will remove contaminated product to provide a clean and safe saleable product.
Detox™ Laser sorter
BEST has developed an optical sorting system able to detect and reject aflatoxin in nuts (peanuts, almonds, hazelnuts, etc) and dried fruit (figs).
Seeing the invisible
The Detox™ laser sorter utilizes a special optical design that allows aflatoxin contamination to be detected and removed. This laser-technique can capture the extremely low intensity of the light reflected by the fungus. When this type of fungus is illuminated with a particular wavelength, it reflects light with a distinctive pattern, a unique fingerprint. The laser system recognizes this fingerprint leading to the removal of aflatoxin contaminated material at high flow rates. Detox™ can detect the aflatoxin biological signature even though it is invisible to the human eye.
