The TOMRA 5A sorting machine brings superior foreign material removal, quality inspection and peel quality control to the table. Running the highest capacities in the industry, this process potato sorter significantly increases the level of food safety and yield.
The TOMRA 5A makes food safety and quality a top priority.
The TOMRA 5A infeed belt sorting machine efficiently discards a wide range of foreign materials, such as corn cobs, wood, stems, plastics, glass and even stray golf balls. This process minimizes the risk of food contamination further down the line and leads to improved product quality.
The sorter is equipped with the latest in product quality management controls, which results in a quick and easy output of a consistent customer specific product quality for further processing.
This is achieved through the brand-new intuitive and functional graphical user interface design, TOMRA ACT, which encompasses a one screen layout so users can see all critical sort information and real-time sorting data at a glance. Quick monitoring and fast adjustments are possible at all times, which means the customer is always in control of the quality of the sort.
A powerful combination of exceptional features, a peel control module and ease of use makes the TOMRA 5A sorting machine an excellent addition to the TOMRA range, guaranteeing excellent results throughout the entire sorting process.
The peel control module takes potato data from the TOMRA 5A sorter for dependable measurements of the peel removal levels. Using proven process control techniques to achieve the desired peel removal, the optimal steam time is then calculated and sent directly to the steam peeler. Consequently, the result is lower peel loss and less food waste, with no operator supervision required.
Capacity: 14 – 55 tons per hour, depending on the type of machine
The TOMRA 5A sorting machine uses top and bottom sensor banks to view each individual object ‘in flight’ using a combination of pulsed LED, camera and NIR (Near InfraRed) to perform targeted spectroscopy with 1 mm precision.
