What is an Optical Color Sorter?

Optical Sorters are among the newest technology in seed and grain processing. This equipment separates particles based on color and is often found at or near the end of the processing line, after mechanical separations, to remove impurities of similar size and density.

Cimbria SEA offers a complete range of optical sorters. Machines are available from one to seven chutes wide in both the True and Chromex models. Technology range includes a simple monochromatic version, to bichromatic, NIR, InGaAs, RGB Full Color, and now Shape Sizing in the SEA Chromex.

Colour sorting is necessary nowadays to ensure the best purity of bulk products, as well as ensuring that the strictest food hygiene and health requirements of end-products are met.

How do color sorters work?

Utilizing top of the line Full-Colour RGB cameras, with optical resolution of 0.06 mm the SEA CHROMEX is able to determine and sort the smallest differences in colour or shade for your processing system. The combination of Full-Colour vision system with NIR and InGaAs technologies makes the SEA CHROMEX the most advanced vision-based sorter on market, representing the fruits of almost 50 years’ experience of colour sorting technology.

Excellent for all food and industrial processing systems, SEA CHROMEX reaps the benefits of the new EXAGON interface that makes setting and adjustment extremely simple.
