Results for Nuts
Simple and efficient, the Air Cleaner separates your product from leaves, stems, chaff, or other light trash.
Cayman BioPrint Sorter
The Cayman® BioPrint® sorter detects biological characteristics of each object, resulting in the most accurate sort even when defective product or foreign material are similar to good product in color, texture or shape.
Conveyors that gently collect product from other processing machines to minimize damage and converge product flow.
Food processing often requires the product flow to be separated into multiple streams for efficient processing. Distribution conveyors optimally meter product flow using gates and diverters.
Feed conveyors optimally present your product to the next piece of processing equipment to maximize yield and improve performance of the downstream equipment.
Grading, Sizing and Separating Conveyors
Grading, sizing and separating are essential functions to your processing line.
