Many food grain and seed crops need to separated by color which can effectively be done in an electronic sorter utilizing optical lens and compressed air jets to identify and discard and particles that do not fit the color profile programmed into the machine. These operate automatically and are extremely reliable.
Capacities can range considerably between commodities and for most applications we suggest a color sort test to determine the results that may be obtained and the capacity rate per channel. The machines are commonly available in standard 10, 20, 40, and 80 channel assemblies. Some of the units are uniquely set up to dedicate a few channels to reclaiming any good material that may have been discarded with the waste.
