The AgriSep stone and clod separator uses an innovative optical scanning system to detect clod and stones mixed with potatoes and other vegetables, offering exceptionally effective crop separation, with 80-98% accuracy, and throughputs up to 50 tonnes per hour.
The AgriSep unit can be integrated as part of a new vegetable grading line or as a stand-alone machine alongside existing grading systems.
This highly effective clod separator takes crop from a fruit & vegetable conveyor, and while the material is in flight, the control unit determines which fingers to retract in order to let the reject clod and stone fall through. Potatoes fall the short distance onto the plastic fingers, covered by latex rubber sleeves, braking the fall and deflecting the potatoes on to the crop cross or in-line vegetable conveyor.
Delivering throughputs of up to 50 tonnes of potatoes per hour, the AgriSep stone and clod separator is also suitable for use with crops such as onions, beet, carrots and bulbs. It comes in three variants; the standard model, the harvester machine for field use on dirty crops, and the stainless steel food processing separating machine for in-plant processing of washed crops, or where food certified conveyors are required.
Unlike optical sorters which examine crop for defects, meaning some vegetables can be discarded, the AgriSep determines whether each object is organic or inorganic in an instant, by scanning items in transit using infrared technology. It then either retracts one of its separating fingers to allow unwanted objects to fall through, or gently delivers the crop onto a conveyor for further processing.
Based upon intelligent infrared camera technology, the AgriSep offers exceptional accuracy when separating stone and clod from a wide variety of vegetables. As such, the AgriSep has an accuracy figure of up to 98% accurate, significantly minimising the need for any manual inspection.
The AgriSep stone and clod separator is a very versatile vegetable separating machine, working effectively on both dirty and washed crop, whilst suitable for use on a variety of vegetables and root crop including potatoes, onions, carrots, beet, bulbs and more.
With low energy and air consumption, the AgriSep is very energy efficient, resulting in minimal running costs.
ACCURATEUp to 98%
Using an innovative optical scanning system to detect clod and stones mixed with potatoes and other vegetables, the AgriSep works at between 80-98% accuracy.
Unlike optical sorters which examine crop for defects, the AgriSep determines whether each object is organic or inorganic in an instant, and effectively separates crop from stones and clod.
HIGH THROUGHPUTUp to 50 tph
Built to perform under the most demanding vegetable handling situations, the AgriSep effectively separates stones and clod from crop with throughputs up to 50 tonnes per hour.
