Bühler Warsaw hosted nine leading Polish frozen processors on a visit to its renovated applications department in London, UK, to inspect and test its SORTEX optical systems with a range of frozen fruit and vegetable products.
Eleven guests visited Bühler’s manufacturing facility in London on Thursday 20th March 2012, hosted by Global Product Manager Stephen Jacobs. Presentations in Polish introduced the range of Buhler’s SORTEX technologies, including InGaAs (camera) technology, customised high definition single and two directional view cameras, PROfile (shape recognition) technology and the high speed ejectors. Frozen fruit and vegetable product demonstrations were run on the SORTEX E1D with frozen blackcurrants, peas and swedes. The sorter removed minor and major colour defects and foreign material – including extraneous vegetable matter.
Pawel Zmudkski, Bühler Warsaw manager of optical sorting said: “This is the first time we have organised such an event and all the delegates were highly complimentary about the two days. Without exception, every delegate commented that they had not realised the technical advances that Bühler has achieved in their latest range of sorters.”
Bühler’s updated European application facility allows customers to run ‘immediate’ frozen and fresh product processing trials. Located adjacent to London City Airport, the facility is accessible for day trips from most European cities. The facility showcases Bühler’s market-leading SORTEX optical sorter equipment featuring a SORTEX E1D for frozen fruit and vegetables and SORTEX K2P machine for fresh products. A temperature controlled area enables product trials in conditions similar to those in fresh and frozen processing plants.
Bühler’s SORTEX optical sorters offer the highest standards of quality and cleanliness for produce. Configured with enhanced InGaAs cameras, high resolution bichromatic cameras and PROfile (shape) technology, Bühler’s SORTEX optical sorters outperform other technologies on the market – in terms of foreign body detection and running costs.
