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!
Foreign material is not the only cause behind customer complaints, or expensive product recalls in dry pet food. Cross-contamination occurs even more frequently and can, in specific cases, have a life-threatening impact on a pet's health.
We can detect and remove all kinds of foreign materials, including plastics (hard and soft), rubber, metal, wood, stones, and even glass. We can significantly reduce cross-contamination, even if the cross contaminant is similar in shape, size, or color to the good kibble.
We can detect and remove even the smallest defects at a high capacity, with an optimal yield. An inspection before packaging is the final safety check for your product. Our Biometric Signature Identification technology recognizes defects with a similar color to the product based on their structure and biological characteristics.
Our in-line sorter can handle high capacity, requires little maintenance, and can deal with harsh environments. The unique BSI+ (Biometric Signature Identification) technology operates by detecting objects' biometric characteristics, comparing them to features in its database to determine whether they should be accepted or rejected in milliseconds.
Due to the use of silos before packaging, the risk of cross-contamination is always present. The only way to eliminate cross-contamination is to employ a sensor-based sorting machine from TOMRA, the global pioneer in food safety assurance technology. TOMRA's state-of-the-art hyperspectral optical sorting technology can even detect cross-contaminants with the same shape, size, or color as a good product.
The Nimbus BSI is a real breakthrough for processing nuts, grains & seeds, dried fruit, and pet food.
