04/05/2016: Separation of different kinds of grains: The latest challenge of sea chrome

First published in Milling and Grain, March 2016  

Colour sorting has become an integral and indispensable part of every grains and seeds processing line, whether intended for food production or for other purposes. 
In the past the electronic sorters were used to separate contaminants and foreign seeds having a different appearance, while today the end users’ demand has gradually changed towards stricter and challenging sorting needs.

These changing requirements have encouraged advances in technology and the development of more and more sophisticated Optical Sorters.

Traditional colour sorters for separation of impurities through monochromatic cameras are still in use today, but the ever-stricter human food standards have led to a request of a greater efficiency in identifying impurities.

CIMBRIA is continuously focusing in research and development of the ultimate technologies to get the best sorting performances and SEA CHROME represents the latest electronic sorter with the ability to combine Real Full- Colour cameras with InGaAs and NIR technologies.

With the use of high-tech Full-Colour cameras and software capability to work beyond the light spectrum of the human eye, SEA CHROME can identify defective elements not only by contrast, but can separate unwanted grains with similar colours, textures and shapes.
