Engineered for potato processors, the TOMRA 5A sorter employs a combination of pulsed LED, camera, NIR and analysis techniques to achieve foreign object detection with 1-mm precision; it uses top and bottom sensor banks to view each individual object in flight. The sorter then removes typical foreign objects found in product streams after washing and peeling, such as stones, corn cobs, roots, wood, glass, plastics, golf balls and metals. The first reject exit allows for foreign objects and unusable product to be removed from the food processing line, while the second exit enables the removal of defective produce that may be suitable for reworking.
