Nut Sorting

Optimised nut sorting for maximum productivity.

Bühler’s advanced optical sorting technology delivers superior performance in removing the most challenging defects and foreign material from many types of nuts and dried fruit including peanuts, almonds, pistachios, walnuts, pecans, cashews, pine nuts, hazelnuts, macadamia, brazil nuts and raisins.

Meeting stringent safety standards

  • The combination of Bühler's advanced inspection system with PROfile™ and InGaAs technology delivers the highest quality final product by removing nut defects and foreign material
  • Customised and precise ejection system can target very small nuts or pieces to larger end-of-line applications such as heavier foreign material
  • Reduction of aflatoxin levels through the efficient removal of discoloured, diseased and damaged defects
  • Hygienic operation and easy cleaning with the open design construction concept

Maximising product value and yield

  • Colour and size grading delivers a uniform appearance for added value
  • High precision ejection system minimises the false ejection of the good nuts and dried fruit
  • Flexible capacity requirements ranging from 0.5 to12.5 tonnes per hour
  • Simultaneous re-sorting and reverse sorting capability allows extensive recovery of good product from the reject with over 50% contamination level
  • Gentle product handling design minimises damage to the good product 

Consistent and stable performance 

  • Consistent performance and a reliable operation with automatic calibration and broadband LED lighting while maintaining a clean optical viewing area
  • The Climate Control System maintains a constant temperature in the optical and control cabinets in the extreme ambient temperature ranges between 0°C - 50°C (32°F - 122°F)

Increased productivity, lower operational costs 

  • Remote monitoring with SORTEX Anyware to offer support across the globe
  • Lower power consumption, long-life defect detection optics, durable Broadband LED lighting and customised ejectors, reduces operational costs
