One of the biggest challenges for food companies is to provide safe and quality products. This is crucial not only for fresh producers but also for food processors of frozen and preserved vegetables. Since 2001, Raytec Vision has been working in the vision technology sector and developing sorting machines for discarding contaminants and product defects from food products.
Raytec has been designing and producing more than 10 different sorting machines, each of those with specific technical characteristics to adapt to food shape, color, and organoleptic characteristics. It is under these premises that Raytec developed Blueight technology (2005), a vision system with 8 frequencies including the chlorophyll analysis. This system has allowed great results on many fresh-cut applications but nowadays the requirements in the food sector are becoming more and more stringent.
This is the reason why Raytec is making a step further, introducing a cutting-edge technology named Decaray (2016). We implemented this new technology platform with 2 more frequencies, empowering the chlorophyll analysis (2020). The new era of Doppia Clorofilla improves the sorting analysis of all types of green vegetables. This technology enables efficiencies over 95% even on green organic contaminants.
Doppia Clorofilla is installed as standard on the totally hygienic sorting machine Curiosity which Raytec launched in 2019 as a result of the new hygienic guidelines recently signed by American GDO and top fresh-cut producers. In addition, Doppia Clorofilla is an available upgrade option on all sorting units installed by Raytec in the fresh-cut industry. This technology raises the bar in food sorting and boosts the safety & quality of premium vegetable products.
