Potato Sorting System

Potato sorting system

Untitled Document The Optyx® WPS for whole potatoes achieves a three-way sort using a combination of air ejectors to remove foreign material and a unique deflector system to separate potatoes for rework from good potatoes. Maximizing the removal of foreign material and providing extremely gentle handling to avoid potato damage, the system improves product quality and protects downstream equipment while reducing labor costs and increasing yields. Combining high-performance color cameras with Raptor laser technology, the unit can sort peeled and peel-on product, differentiating peel from scab, bruise, rot and green defects. Processors producing multiple potato products can easily change the unit to achieve the ideal sort for each product run.
