Large Walnut Plants Can Greatly Reduce FM and Defects
The presence of walnut shell and membrane pieces among kernels, combined with color-based kernel quality, results in a higher defect ratio during processing compared to other tree nuts. This means increased runs through the sorter to find these hard to see defects.
The Borde Inspect Solution is effectively used to identify all FMs, and provide kernel color information - light, light amber, & amber - by count and percentage, as well as kernel size. The addition of high resolution cameras along with the learning algorithm can enhance current protocols to better detect a higher volume of FM and defects.
Significantly reduced waste and improved efficiency
