By locating the TOMRA 5C on the processing line between the freezer tunnel and the packing station, final checks for food safety and product quality can be made. As the frozen product reaches the end of the line for bagging, the sorter recognises and removes any remaining foreign material, extraneous vegetable matter and hard-to-detect product defects, such as stems and stalks with green beans and nightshade with peas. 

TOMRA's BSI technology assesses every object passing down the line is not only for its colour and shape, but also biological characteristics. This next-generation spectral imaging is able to look inside materials on the line by identifying their unique biometric characteristics or ‘fingerprint’. It clearly contrasts good and bad materials and is able to detect even smaller defects than those recognised by conventional spectral technology.
