TOMRA is one of the largest manufacturers of fries sorting equipment. 75% of the fries produced worldwide are sorted and processed by TOMRA machines. The company offers the widest range of sorting solutions available in the food industry. The range includes advanced optical sorters for many applications, from fresh produce to processed food.
TECHNOLOGY AT YOUR SERVICE
The manufacturer of sorting machines offers numerous solutions for sorting fresh, whole, sliced, flaked, diced and frozen potatoes. TOMRA optical sorters separate the product in whole or processed form, i.e. fries, roasted potatoes, chips and other potato forms.
Precise sorting technologies based on sensors enable the product to be sorter, taking into account the defects of the sorted biological characteristics, analysing them in terms of structure, size, shape, density of unknown material and colour of the potato. The machines use unique near infrared sensors (NIR) to scan each individual item ‘in flight’. This allows for an undisturbed view of the product during high capacity sorting.
Thanks to the technology used, these machines sort the product for the removal of defective products -discoloured, rotten, green, blue. Moreover, they eliminate unknown materials such as plastic, stones, glass, sticks, etc. TOMRA also offers steam peeling systems. The performance of these systems ranges from 1000 to 50,000 kg/h.
One of TOMRA’s flagship products is the equipment for sorting fries and peeled potatoes. Following the Belgian tradition of french fries, the company has developed solutions to analyse the fries in terms of length, shape or curvatures.
The use of TOMRA sorting machines translates directly into:
high productivity and repeatability of 1-50 tons per hour
very low level of production waste
low water consumption
reliability in continuous operation 24/7
guarantee of quality and repeatability
IT IS AN INVESTMENT THAT PAYS FOR ITSELF IN A FLASH!
TOMRA’s food sorters are among the most efficient machines available on the market worldwide. Optical sorters control millions of individual items per hour, recovering as much as 5-10% of the yield.
