The SORTEX A is an ATEX-compliant optical sorter for sorting grains, coffee, nuts, and plastics. It detects light or dark color defects and foreign materials. It is available in up to 5 chutes and with sorting throughputs of up to 40 tons per hour.
Optimizes yields, minimizes waste
The SORTEX A comes with machine learning. Its product tracking software analyzes each grain and classifies it either as accepted or rejected, minimizing false ejection of good grains.
Automatic sorter calibration during setup
The sorter setup is simplified by its machine learning features such as automatic calibration and product tracking. Also, you need to spend less time on continuous monitoring and adjustments.
Consistent product quality
The SORTEX A uses high-resolution cameras to detect either light or dark defects. This includes detecting either color defects in your products or removing foreign materials. This can help you to achieve a consistent quality of products.
Configurable options to match different product types
Our Bühler sales engineers will advise you on the best possible machine configurations to meet your sorting requirements. The configuration options include camera filters and chutes.
Robust build, sealed components, and long lifetime
The SORTEX A is built to withstand hazardous environments in processing plants. Its critical components are sealed to IP5X rating for protection against dust. Additionally, wear parts such as the Broadband LED lighting and the ejectors are modularly arranged so they can be serviced or replaced easily, thus minimizing sorter downtime.
