    Tender Sorter

    Eject defects that are not consistent with your standards

    Lizotte has developed the expertise to automate the inspection process to eject defective product from your production.



    The Lizotte Tender Sorter inspects up to 90 pieces per second for color, shape, and foreign material defects like plastic, rubber, wood, and more. Using line-scan imaging technology, it will detect various color and shape defect that will affect the appearance of the product such as length, width, overcooked, undercooked, missing batter, excess batter, exposed meat and much more. In addition, it can be coupled with an x-ray inspection station to detect weight, bone, stainless steel and non-ferrous metal.

    This system uses an innovative gate ejection mechanism that is not affected by the orientation of the product and will only eject the defective product from the production. It can inspect your product before or after breading, before or after cooking and even before or after freezing regardless of the size, shape and coating. This system is fully food grade and ready for harsh wash-down environment.

    Lizotte specializes in custom-built equipment. Hence, we would be pleased to supply a personalized system that would fulfill your operational requirements.
