TOMRA's FPS is a robust, high capacity potato sorter for use in the separation of most foreign material from unwashed potatoes and other root crops.
FPS has proven itself invaluable in heavy ground conditions where its unique vision system accurately separates dirt clods, rocks, wood, bone, plastic, glass, metal, rubber and more.
With labor hard to find, typical labor savings using FPS can be in the area of 80 percent with satisfied customers reporting high unloading speeds even in the most challenging conditions.
Heero Gramsma, managing director at Nedato, explains: “We are continuously looking to improve the quality of our potatoes and we recently felt the time was right to invest in innovative technologies to update our existing grading lines. TOMRA Sorting Food is a very well-known brand to French fries producers. We had heard that the company was able to successfully sort out clods, with barely any good product loss, which is something we know that the competition is unable to do - it was this capability that caught our attention.”
