TOMRA is proud to launch the Falcon, a cost-effective pre-sorter machine for the fresh cut industry.
TOMRA Sorting Food will display its Falcon belt sorter at SIAL in Paris Nord Villepinte, France, from 19-23 October at booth E-232 in hall 7.
The Falcon sorter processes high volumes and is tailored to our customers’ businesses. It removes unwanted material brought into the production line from the field including: droppings, rodents, bugs, plastic, wood and soil clumps.
Product manager at TOMRA Sorting Solutions Roel Molenaers said: "Through the Falcon we get rid of most defects at an early stage to ensure that the sorters further down the line can work at a higher efficiency rate and can assure a final product with an outstanding high quality."
The Falcon ensures that, irrespective of the state of the product, the pre-sorting runs balanced and secure so that further down the processing line, a uniform product can be processed and a great final product guaranteed.
Flexible product handling is facilitated through the integrated infeed belt and spreading of all leaves. The high-speed ejection fingers accurately remove all foreign material.
The high-resolution cameras, supported by LED illumination detect different characteristics including the chlorophyll level of the produce, and the off belt detection enhances a high quality final product.
The easy to use and stable interface allows the operator to make snap shots of the raw material and defects.
TOMRA’s new sorting machine meets all stringent sanitary requirements for the fresh cut industry. Given the compact design, the sorting machine is easy to integrate in the production, and can be added to existing processing lines.
Its open design facilitates the machine’s maintenance and sanitation.
Mr. Molenaers said: "I’m very glad with the fact that TOMRA was once more able to provide an answer to this urgent need of the fresh cut market. With the combination of Odenberg and BEST technologies we are able to offer state-of-the-art technologies."
