The in-place cleaning system of the conveyor belt and the easy access to the different parts of the machine reduce washing times and water consumption.  

  1. Preparation of the harvest for sorting 

Drainage, distribution over the entire width, removal of small waste: optimised sorting (vibrating table).

Stabilisation of the harvest and alignment of objects in front of the nozzles to improve sorting accuracy (blue conveyor with grooves).

  1. Analysis and sorting

The camera continuously films the harvested grapes on the conveyor. The PELLENC sorting software analyses the images depending on the selected level of sorting (sorting by shape and colour).

The nozzles eject unwanted items from the harvest (green waste, berries that are unripe or in poor health, dried-out grapes, etc.) via the bar of compressed air nozzles.

“This is amazing technology. The sorting action removes really microscopic particles of leaves, stalks, or fragments, scarcely visible to the naked eye, and impossible to sort by hand. The quality is amazing, as is the accuracy of the settings. You can set the machine to sort berry size, ripeness or colour; anything you want to work on or refine.”
