Key benefits

Adjustable wide chute to match your sorting needs

The chutes have an adjustable separator, which you can easily remove to match your sorting needs. Configure it for high throughput for better yields or for multiple re-sorting.

Protected electronics to allow full cleaning

All critical components on the SORTEX F BioVision optical sorter are fully sealed and protected to IP56X rating. This allows you to completely wash down the optical sorter without damaging the electronics.

Detect defects as small as 2 mm in size

The SORTEX F can detect nut shells, fragments, shape defects, and foreign materials as small as 2 mm in size.

Highlight features

Simplify sorting

Minimal programming, setup, and monitoring

The SORTEX F BioVision’s machine learning software automatically calibrates the lighting and camera system during setup. Simply choose a sorting mode to start sorting.

Improve the removal of foreign material

Target non-visible defects with BioVision technology

The SORTEX F comes with our BioVision detection software. This uses infrared to detect defects that cannot be seen by visible wavelength cameras, such as rotten nut kernels that are still in their shells.
