Pear processing and sorting lines

Pear processing and sorting lines

UNITEC designs and manufactures complete systems and lines that allow processing pears with the highest gentleness and efficiency and we offer several sorting and quality selection technologies in order to develop a winning project with your different varieties of pears (Abate Fetel, Conference, Kaiser, Williams, Packam’s, Santa Maria, Blanquilla, Limonera, etc.).

Pear processing lines require particular care at every stage. We believe that the results we have achieved in over 25 years of processing this kind of fruit allow us to confidently state today that each packing house in need of pear processing technology (for any variety) can look upon us as a safe port where it can anchor its future for what concerns pear handling (sorting, quality selection, packing, traceability, etc.). What’s more, it can count on guaranteed, reliable solutions that respond to every need, from the simplest to the most complex.

Our processing lines are designed to handle all varieties with great success. This is possible because the technologies of each processing stage (from emptying through to packing) have been developed, tried and tested to deal with the most delicate fruits of all.


Sorting technologies
UNICAL_200©, UNICAL 600©, UNI_ONE LF jolly© and UNI_TWIN jolly© technologies, incorporating our various sorting systems (PEAR_VISION©, QS_ON LINE©, etc.) allow us to offer a tailored solution to any requirement whatsoever regarding pears.

UNICAL_200© sorter has been periodically updated and optimized (from 1985 to the present day) in order to constantly enhance performance, especially as regards the gentleness guaranteed at every single stage of our lines for this prized fruit. This continuous updating has enabled us to guarantee the greatest of care throughout Abate pear processing, from emptying of bins in water, to electronic optical sorting and the final packing stage.

With UNI_ONE LF jolly© and UNI TWIN jolly© we can create Abate pear processing plants even for small-scale productions. These small lines nonetheless offer all the advantages of weight-based and optical sorting which allows precision grading of size and optimum presentation of the product to the end consumer.


Quality selection
In 2013, UNITEC launched on the market PEAR_VISION©, a new system which will also allow the detection of external defects of these fruit, ranging from mild to serious, based on the individual requirements of the customer's target markets.
