New Sesotec sorter to be highlighted at interpack 2017.

Schönberg, Germany—Sesotec—one of the world’s leading manufacturers of machines and systems for contaminant detection and product sorting—will be attending interpack 2017 (stand A90 in hall 13) the CAPTURA FLOW sorting system will be highlighted.

In the food industry these sorting systems are used to remove organic and inorganic contamination to provide consumer protection. The systems also detect and separate product defects and thus maximize the quality of the end product.

The new CAPTURA FLOW sorting system was designed to specifically meet the requirements of the food industry with respect to highest hygienic design demands.

In the development of this system Sesotec primarily focused on quick and easy cleaning and attached great importance to open design and disassembly without tools—such as implementation with the quick-release conveyor belt. Individual light and air-blast units make it possible to optimally match the system to the sorting task and simultaneously guarantee optimized energy and compressed-air consumption.

For the food industry Sesotec with the CAPTURA FLOW sorting system offers an economically efficient solution for the sorting of fresh, frozen, dried, cut, poured, and packed products. The system ensures that consumers are reliably protected against a multitude of contaminants and impurities such as glass, wood, cardboard, metals, plastics, stones, and also insects, rodents, etc.. Products of incorrect color, shape, or with partial defects also are detected and separated.

“With the variable use of sensors the system offers the advantage of great flexibility. Depending on the type of food that should be sorted the CAPTURA FLOW multi-sensor system can be flexibly adapted to the respective sorting requirements by combining various sensors. The modular design also allows sensor upgrades at any time, which for the customer means that the system is a safe investment for the future”, summarizes Sesotec EMEA head of sales Oliver Uhrmann.

The Sesotec group is one of the leading manufacturers of machines and systems for contaminant detection and material sorting. Product sales primarily focus on the food, plastics, chemical, pharmaceutical, and recycling industries. Sesotec’s global presence includes subsidiaries in Great Britain, Singapore, China, U.S., France, Italy (2), India, Canada, Thailand, a representative office in Turkey, and more than 60 partners all over the world.
