TOMRA’s advanced sorting machines inspect millions of individual product pieces per hour, typically recovering five to ten percent higher yields while providing superior utilization or resources.
That’s equivalent to approximately 25,000 trucks worth of potatoes per year!
We provide solutions for almond sorting for every stage of the production line getting the critical FM out at the very start to then focus on the sorting process to end with the perfect brown skin or blanched almond.
Almonds sorting machine Nimbus BSI - TOMRA Sorting
We are able to detect and remove all kinds of foreign materials and defects such as stones, plastic, metal, glas, sticks, hull, in-shell almonds, pee wees, shell pieces (hard shells and paper shells), gummies, insect damage, doubles, rotten almonds, aflatoxin contaminated nuts, split almonds, chips and scratches.
Frupinsa, located in Tarragona, Spain, operates in the agri-food sector, dried fruit and specifically the almond. The Nimbus BSI+ allows them to have a better work rate, fewer productions stops, less waste and an optimal product quality.
Monte Vista is a grower and packer of California almonds, located in Denair. They seek out customers who are very demanding and wat the best quality almonds that California can produce. With TOMRA, they increased safety, volume and flexibility, all in one package.
We are able to detect even the smallest defect with the least amount of passes. This allows us to reduce the rejection rate and provide the highest yield of quality product.
“TOMRA’s BSI+ technology made the difference. Especially TOMRA’s ability to target insect damage – not only major damage, but also the pinhole carpophilus-beetle bites – which was a real eye-opener.”
- Tim Orr, Operations Manager at Bright Light Agribusiness
Introducing Bruce. The star in our video illustrating his life as an almond. From tree to table, an insight into his upbringing and the role our technology plays in his life journey.
The best method for aflatoxin detection is to employ sensor-based sorting machines produced by TOMRA, the global pioneer in food safety assurance technology. The special optical design of TOMRA’s Detox laser makes it possible to identify the extremely low intensity of light reflected by aflatoxin mould and fungus in a variety of food types, enabling the detection of aflatoxin contamination.
By implementing the latest x-ray and imaging technology, metal, stones, pits, glass, high-density plastics, etc. are removed from the food.
TOMRA 3C uses a high-resolution camera and laser units. After poured into the hopper, the feed falls onto the vibration plate. It then falls further into the detection area after being evenly laid over the plate for dual-sided detection by laser and the color camera. In a matter of milliseconds, the intelligent rejecting system eliminates all defective products and foreign objects. Good products fall directly into the qualified product slot, and defects into the rejected product slot.
The Nimbus BSI is a real breakthrough for processing nuts, grains & seeds, dried fruit, and pet food.
