Meet food safety standards with the Sortex F optical sorter, which features open access for quick and easy cleaning, and was designed to prevent the build-up of pathogenic bacteria that can cause food-borne diseases such as Salmonella, E. Coli and Listeria. In addition, the sorter features a retractable chute that can be repositioned to allow operators to physically step inside and access internal areas of the machine. Sloped surfaces ensure that all product residue runs off, eliminating the risk of product build up. The finish of all metal surfaces complies with the recommended requirement for safe food contact, and all polymer materials are resistant to high-pressure washer jets and compliant to FDA regulations.
