Laser sorter

The FluoRaptor™ is a fluorescence-sensing laser sorter that maximizes the detection and removal of defects, extraneous vegetable matter (EVM) and foreign material (FM) based on differing levels of chlorophyll as well as color, size and shape. Can detect the presence of chlorophyll in products which enables an easy separation from those objects that do not contain chlorophyll, namely FM. Further, the improvements in fluorescence-detection technology enable differentiation of subtle differences of chlorophyll levels in objects to detect and remove EVM. The sorter features a laser image that is displayed in full color, allowing an operator to make quick selections of those objects to be kept, versus those objects to be rejected. Images and setups can be stored on the G6 computer hard drive, remotely, or on a USB key for quick retrieval and re-use.
