Optical sorting is a process that seems to be a complicated technology for the layman.
However, it turns out that many of us use optically sorted products every day.
The process of manufacturing and packaging products is so complex that we do not aware of the individual stages and technologies that were used to produce the products we consume.
Optical sorting is used in the processing of vegetables, fruits, cereal, rice, all kinds of nuts, seeds, and pulses, even coffee or tea.
When we put a vegetable seasoning to the soup, we do not wonder if there was a rock or a lump of soil with which the carrot was growing. And the groats we eat do not contain glass or plastic particles. This is what optical sorters are used for – to protect the products we eat.
However, it is not about impurities that are visible to the naked eye, but mainly about particles of various foreign materials that may be found in these products.
Therefore, optical sorting is very important not only for consumers but also for suppliers whose products are checked very rigorously in terms of quality.
