For fruit processing, it is necessary to provide a suitable system for receiving and sorting according to the type of product to be treated, so as to handle it in the most delicate way.
By means of a bin dumper or a semi-automatic case dumper, the fruit is discharged in the receiving tanks where it receives a first wash with cold or hot water. In this phase, it is possible to install a recirculated water filtering system, to keep the water free from solid deposits in circulation.
An elevator sends the fruit to the sorting table and/or the optical sorter, to eliminate any residual foreign bodies. By means of another elevator, the fruit then reaches the destoning and chopping group.
