As labour becomes increasingly scarce, a key challenge facing growers is sourcing workers to manually sort the crop as it goes into store or loaded out onto transport to their customers.

Automating the process of sorting the trash and stone accurately from the good tubers has the potential to significantly increase throughput and save growers many of the costs and issues involved with manual picking.

GRIMME and Haith now offer two new optical sorting solutions that do just this, the Haith ProSort being one of them. Optical sorting is not new, and TOMRA is widely acknowledged as a leader in this type of technology.

The advanced TOMRA 3A optical sorter is capable of unrivalled foreign material removal, this highly efficient machine is powerful and robust, easy to use and maintain & reduces storage needs.

However, what is new is how the technology has been incorporated by Haith and GRIMME into a new mobile, modular unit that fits quickly and easily into existing processes.

For example:

  • Used in conjunction with the GRIMME RH receiving hopper taking potatoes into store
  • Used alongside the GRIMME Cleanloader ensuring that the potatoes being loaded are precleaned to the highest standard
  • Used as part of a new or existing Haith grading line to sort and clean the incoming crop
  • Used exactly when and where the grower or processor needs rapid, accurate cleaning
