Almond sorting & processing equipment

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.

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.

OUR Sorting machines recognise and dispose of aflatoxins

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.
