(Patent Pending 2004208745)
The airsorter sorts good nuts from bad and can distinguish between a dry and wet kernel. As well, it removes all husks, leaves, sticks and other debris as the nuts travel through the processing line.
A brush controls the speed of the nuts as they travel over an air curtain. The good nuts, being heavier, fall through a gap onto an inspection table, while the bad nuts, being lighter, continue on to the reject lane or for a second sort.
The airsorter has a range of advantages over the traditional water sorter. The most sigificant of these are:
The airsorter can be fitted to any existing machinery, usually slotting into the production line between the dehusker and roller inspection conveyor. The standard model is 1.2m high, 1.3m long and 0.8m wide. The height is adjustable. It is constructed out of mild steel, with a durable powdercoated finish and is powered by a 750w fan motor.
