Tomato optical sorter
Protec’s line of tomato optical sorters meets any processing requirements of the agri-food industry: whole tomatoes, peeled tomatoes, pulps, diced and tomato for paste. The tomato optical sorters reject products unsuitable for color, or identify and eliminate defects and foreign bodies. Protec’s line for tomato processing features also sorting machines for whole tomatoes based on size and draining machines for the juice from diced products.
- Whole tomato
The sorters reject whole tomatoes with black, rotten or green color spots. Identify and reject foreign bodies, such as wood splinters, plastic, ears of corn or corncobs, cans, bottles, small animals.
- Pulp, peeled and diced
The optical sorters use an unique vision system that sorts green, yellow, orange and black tomatoes: an accurate and reliable sort for a quality-finished product. In sorting semi-processed products, Protec’s sorters suction products with semi-liquid consistency and make it easy to collect them.
- Peeled tomato
After peeling, the sorting is done with WT camera technology that detects with great accuracy black and green discolorations on the surface of the product and white or yellow color spots inside it.
