Sensor-based optical sorter

February 7, 2013

Capable of sorting or grading for quality, shape, color, size, blemishes and foreign objects, the ODENBERG Halo sensor-based optical sorter comes in 4 sizes, ranging from 20- to 80-in. belt widths. After the sorter analyzes visible features, first-grade produce gently passes through the system while second- and third-grade items are redirected into individual streams. It can be used with a variety of fruits and vegetables.
