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!
Our walnut sorting machines detect and remove rancidity, mold, shells, septas, red, black and shriveled walnuts, and can sort out various shades of amber and lights in extra, class I and class II walnuts as well as all types of foreign material.
Morada Produce (Morada Nut) are third generation family farmers from Linden, California. They pack walnuts using TOMRA Nimbus BSI technology to ensure only a safe and quality product makes it to the end consumer.
“We turned to TOMRA because, when we looked at the challenges ahead, it soon became clear that TOMRA was going to meet our high requirements and help us to achieve the quality and high throughput in a timely manner. Their years of expertise led to us developing the best walnut sorting solution for our needs.”
(Scott Brown, Production Manager at Morada Nut).
One of the major problems Andersen & Sons faced in the past was their inability to identify defects using just laser sorters. Having outgrown its latest walnut sorting machine, they needed something that would meet the company’s specific demands. Mike Andersen, vice president of sales at Andersen & Sons explains: “TOMRA is a familiar name in the industry. We have been using TOMRA laser sorters since 2005, but we recently purchased TOMRA’s Nimbus free fall sorting machine with Biometric Signature Identification (BSI) - a larger machine with advanced laser sorting technology.”
