DETECTING NON-TOBACCO RELATED MATERIAL (NTRM)
With up to twelve individual laser signals, the Helius™ Tobacco free-fall laser sorter detects all non-tobacco related material (NTRM) in a stream of product. Besides the conventional sorting methods of using color, structure, and size, the Helius™ Tobacco sorting machine can sort based on biological characteristics invisible to the human eye. Combined with our patented Fluo technology, the sorter detects chlorophyll's lightest shades to create an even better contrast between the good product and defects.
Within milliseconds, powerful air guns accurately remove any NTRM and allow the good product to proceed in its free fall.
TWO VERSATILE CONFIGURATIONS
Depending on the tobacco to be sorted (stems or lamina), the infeed arrangement can vary from a flat pan to cascaded shaker, providing sufficient spreading of the tobacco product and ensuring optimal sorting performances. The sorters can feature a single or double-sided inspection module based on the product's size, densities, and flow rates.
