Our Chemical Imaging Technology (CIT), suitable for industrial use, provides new and until now unimagined possibilities for the classification and sorting of dried food. This is possible through recognition of the chemical composition of the product in real time.

Previously used mechanical and electrical procedures for the separation of foreign substances and unwanted components of the product itself had their limits.

For example unwanted substances in dried mushrooms of similar colour, form and density are easily separated using CIT:

Thus there are following advantages over previously used procedures:

  • Sorting despite similar colour
  • Sorting despite similar shape and form
  • Sorting despite similar density

Sorted by difference in chemical composition.

Advantages of CIT for the sorting of mushrooms:

Separation is possible

All foreign substances like

  • Metal
  • Stone
  • Glass/Paper/Cardboard
  • Plastics
  • Cigarette butts
  • Plant matter, e.g. Twigs/Leaves etc.
  • Insects: e.g. Beetles, Larvae, Maggots
  • Clods of soil
  • Etc…
