Visar Sorting machine shown in DT Dijkstra Agritechnica 2017 stand
DT Dijkstra has entered into a collaboration with Visar Sorting for the delivery of the Sortop optical sorting machinery. With this agreement, DT Dijkstra will be able to offer the newest completely automatic electronic sorter suitable for sorting carrots and potatoes, as well as their existing products. The Visar Sortop can sort any party of carrots or potatoes consistently and efficiently, which makes sorting by hand unnecessary, indicates DT Dijkstra.
The Visar Sortop machine
There is an option to judge various products based on a 360 degree camera image fully automatically. The Sortop module can process carrots and potatoes alternately with minimum setting changes, according to the software settings
This sorter was designed to inspect every type of carrot (even squint and misshapen) with a diameter between 10 and 60 mm and a length between 25 and 400 mm. The camera can sort and classify various carrots with good efficiency, says DT Dijkstra.
The Sortop can sort both washed and unwashed (planting) potatoes with efficiency and consistency. The following points are important according to the producer:
100 percent automatic
20 – 130 mm square size sorting
Optimal size sorting of each individual potato
Optimal quality determination of each individual potato
5 quality exits + 1 waste
