Thousands of visitors to this year’s three-day Fruit Logistica exhibition in Berlin, Germany, will have the opportunity to meet The Buhler Group’s new segment development manager for Fruit & Vegetables in Europe and CIS, Stefano Bonacina and to step inside the SORTEX F – the industry’s most hygienic optical sorting platform for frozen fruit and vegetables.
Available with SORTEX PolarVision™ technology, this system actively targets smaller and difficult-to-detect foreign material (FM) and enables processors to sort their produce hygienically – making it easier to comply with ever stricter safety specifications.
“Bühler’s optical sorting portfolio, which includes the popular and respected SORTEX K and SORTEX E ranges, provides solutions for all stages of fruit and vegetable processing – from farm to freezer. The addition of the all-new SORTEX F, developed by Bühler’s in-house specialists, using current best-practice and hygienic product design, offers its most advanced hygienic technology to date, with a stainless-steel frame, sloped surfaces, hygienic conduits, and hygienic grade fixings. This unrivalled machine, with zero tolerance for product build-up, minimizes the risk of contamination,” says Bonacina.
He adds that SORTEX PolarVision™ technology, available on the SORTEX F and the SORTEX E, is a sophisticated FM detection system, capable of delivering outstanding results, across a wide variety of frozen produce – from single products, such as peas or raspberries, to complex vegetable or fruit mixes.
Visitors to Fruit Logistica can find Buhler in Hall 8.1, stand B-24.
