Typhoon is an optical sorting machine with the highest resolution cameras to examine the product on the conveyor belt. The system is dedicated to checking the food products in pulpy or liquid form such as fruit pulp, crushed or extruded tomatoes, or pulpy diced fruit and tomatoes.

Typhoon can dispose of colour defects, marked produce and foreign bodies also the same colour as the good product. The product is fed onto the inspection belt forming a light layer. The inspection zone is clearly separated from the ejection zone to avoid product sprays which can prejudice selection over time.

Typhoon is equipped with a reject system with vacuum extractor. Based on the size of the product particles, the reject system can be equipped with 64, 88, 128 or 176 extractor nozzles. The diameter of the extractor nozzles always vary based on the size of the particles of product from a minimum of 8 mm to a maximum of 25 mm.

Typhoon can be equipped with a single ejector system or can have two reject systems to select fine and diced pulp.


TYPHOON is an Octa-Chromatic machine equipped with the following technologies:

  • NIR (Near InfraRed) technology;
  • Visible Color analysis;
  • Translucency analysis;

NIR technology can detect the presence of rot and foreign bodies.  Visible Color analysis allows colour defects to be detected, such as green products, yellowing, etc.
Translucency analysis enables detection of fragments of nuts and contaminants which are on the side towards the conveyor belt.

An ethernet connection is available for remote control.
The machine detects statistical data on rejected products for quality analysis of the selected raw material.
