This octa-chromatic sorting machine was designed for sorting both whole and peeled tomatoes. Rayvolution uses NIR (Near InfraRed) technology for Visible Color analysis, Shape analysis and Translucency analysis. NIR detects the presence of rot and foreign bodies inside the produce, whilst Visible Color detects colour defects on the outside, such as discolouring, damage, etc. Translucency analysis enables detection of stones and contaminants on the belt side of the produce, whilst Shape analysis removes tomatoes which are too small.
Imperfections are detected in real time and this machine provides statistical data to give insight into the quality of the batch.
Rayvolution is equipped with a palette waste reject system with electro-pneumatic drive. Ejection can be a single grading system or, in 3Way mode, can differentiate between pure waste and second grade produce.

What our customers say
Since mid-2016, we have implemented the preventative service package. A recent internal review has highlighted that the service costs have nearly been neutralised by the drop-in breakdown repair/parts costs. The impact on the business is that downtime on the machines has become minimal to insignificant.
From East Yorkshire, Wold Fayre produce chose Raynbow to sort and wash potatoes for the crisping, chipping, ware, catering and seed industries.
