Color, structure, size, shape and … Biological detection
The laser sorter provides you with the best solution for increasing the quality of your product.
Even the invisible becomes visible!
The laser sorters are used for applications that require both color and structure sorting like raisins, shrimps, vegetables, fruit, tobacco and nuts. Laser scanning detects contaminants even when the products and the defects have the same color. The patented scattering, Fluo™, Detox and SWIR principles give the operator high discriminating power.
Our laser machines sort based on color, structure, size and shape differences. Thanks to the Fluo™ technique,
it is also possible to screen chlorophyll containing products like lettuce, spinach, peas or other green vegetables for foreign material contamination with minimal loss of good product. On top of these “traditional sorting techniques”, our machine sorts based on biological characteristics. Those biological features are invisible with the human eye but sometimes dangerous for the health, such as aflatoxin in nuts and figs.
The Detox™ laser sorter utilizes a special optical design that allows aflatoxin contamination to be detected and removed. Another laser-based technology is used which enables sorting based on water content. With SWIR technology, the water based products such as frozen fruit and vegetables absorb the light whereas difficult defects such as woodand plastic reflect it.
The use of different types of lasers provides unmatched flexibility in sorting different types of products. It has proved to be far superior to other sorting methods: with a speed and precision that nobody else can offer, invisible foreign bodies, such as glass, or defects with exactly the same color as the good product are detected.
