X-ray Technology by TOMRA

TOMRA Sorting Food has X-ray systems available for detection on density.

Bulk products like pits in stone fruits are some of the applications where TOMRA uses the X-ray technology. With this technology we can scan and detect the defects based on density difference. Metal (ferrous and non-ferrous), glass and stones are the most important foreign bodies that can be detected in different applications.

After successful implementation of the Ixus™ bulk sorter in the detection of pits in cherries, TOMRA Sorting Food now offers the same solution for olives. The results from taking out pitted olives (green and black) are close to perfection, with very limited false reject.

These high performance systems will detect the smallest defects and insure you have the lowest potential claim to your customers on foreign material issues.
