WWW.POTATOGROWER.COM 19 BUYERS' GUIDE Jantz Canada • (905) 643-7777 • www.jantzcanada.com • kscanlan@jantzcanada.com Tomra Sorting Solutions • (916) 388-3900 • www.tomra.com/food • food.us@tomra.com Heavy-Duty Bin Tipper Working with Grimmway farms in California, Jantz Canada has developed the industry's benchmark in bin-tipping technology. Jantz's bin tipper is electrically powered rather than hydraulic, allowing for infinitely fine control throughout the entire dump cycle. This method also means the product can be quickly lifted, then slowed for the actual dump portion of the cycle, thus protecting produce. All these features are wrapped into a unit that can easily handle 5,000-pound dumps, tip to 150 degrees and cycle in one minute. Field Potato Sorter TOMRA's FPS is a robust sensor-based, high-capacity potato sorter for use in the separation of most foreign material from unwashed potatoes and other root crops. The FPS has proven itself invaluable in heavy ground conditions, where its unique vision system accurately separates dirt clods, rocks, wood, bone, plastic, glass, metal, rubber and more. With labor often difficult to find, typical labor savings using FPS can be in the area of 80 percent, with satisfied customers reporting high unloading speeds even in the most challenging conditions. Halo The Halo is a high-performance, sensor- based optical food sorting solution that sorts potatoes—and many other fruits and vegetables—based on size and quality, thus ensuring and improving food safety. Titan II The Titan II is a low-cost machine for grading and sorting based on quality, size and food safety. It uses a top and bottom array of color and near infrared optical sensors to scan the surface of individual items in flight. The color vision sensors analyze for size, shape and color. The near-infrared sensors analyze for defects that are difficult to see with the human eye. The first-grade produce gently passes through the sorting machine, while the second- and third-grade are directed into individual streams by intelligent finger ejectors. Genius The Genius optical belt sorter uses a combination of various sorting technologies to meet even the highest food safety requirements. It removes all unwanted discolorations and foreign material from potatoes and is good for use in applications that process french fries, chips, potato slices, dices and wedges. Daily operation, quality control and feedback are made possible through the Genius's touchscreen with an intuitive graphical user interface.
