With the looming possible labour shortages, walnut growers are more and more often looking implement automation solutions in their hulling and drying facilities. WECO Sorting is one of the leading global suppliers of walnut sorting and moisture metering technology. The company proposes comprehensive solutions, including a walnut color-sorter - WalnutTek.
Thanks to the optical camera system, WalnutTek allows to view walnuts in free fall without the need for a clean background, rejecting green and black nuts, and thus ensuring a high level of consumer
satisfaction with good quality products. “WalnutTek is an ideal solution for all size walnuts growers, which helps them to increase the efficiency and quality of production as well as to save on labour
expenses”, explains Piotr Milewski from Milbor PMC which is representing WECO Sorting in Europe.
Adjusting the nuts to the needs of the market and providing them with a suitable drying process is carried out by using the WECO Moisture Meter. WECO proposes a wide range of options beyond simple moisture monitoring, including automation for air doors and fill gates. The use of appropriate systems allow to dry walnuts to a preset moisture limit saving energy and fuel while also preventing over-drying.
WECO Sorting will be presented at the Fruit Attraction in Madrid, which will take place on 23-25 October, Hall 8 booth 8E13A. Besides its walnut offering, WECO Sorting will also present its machines
dedicated to blueberry sorting.
