Features

ADVANCED SORTING

ADVANCED SORTING

By not only removing the need for manual sorting, but also increasing the percentage of crop that can be sold by up to 5%, the Sortop increases accuracy and consistency whilst identifying more sellable crop.

ACCURATE DETECTION

ACCURATE DETECTION

The high definition camera used within the Visar Sortop means that all defects are detected, plus, the machine can even differentiate between a water stain and the tiniest black spot.

360 DEGREE VISION

360 DEGREE VISION

The 360 degree mirror system means that every carrot and potato is entirely analysed, at an impressive rate of 12 to 15 carrots per second. This is the only reliable means of detecting any defects whilst grading and weighing the carrots with exceptional accuracy, to the nearest millimetre and gram.

AIR EJECTION

AIR EJECTION

A highly accurate nozzle system blows compressed air following a calculated trajectory, based on each carrot or potato’s dimension and weight.

GENTLE HANDLING

GENTLE HANDLING

Crop is handled exceptionally gently with no drops. Soft-lined output areas ensure the highest quality crop with no damage or breakages.

AUTO-ADJUSTMENT

AUTO-ADJUSTMENT

The unique software of the Sortop sorter really sets it apart from other optical sorting systems on the market, as the exclusive design allows the system to work as if you were sorting manually but with greater capacity and consistency. The unique auto-learning process therefore removes the need for tedious adjusting and programming. The machine learns what defects are acceptable and not, and therefore you can literally pass any batch of carrots through the machine without adjustment.

NO MANUAL SORTING

NO MANUAL SORTING

The Visar Sortop is different from any other optical sorter on the market – it can sort your whole crop efficiently, automatically and without manual labour. Other sorters often require an extra manual sort, some need crop to be re-graded and others don’t have a grading and weighing function.
