Criveller Group introduced a new automatic sorting table with two vibrating sections at different levels to sort out shot berries, seeds, stems, debris and jacks. In the first sorting area, shot berries fall through slotted screens into collection drawers that can be cleaned while the table is in operation. Grapes then pass through the “core of the table” that is based on a patented design that consists of an adjustable slotted screen set at an incline. Berries fall through the screen, while stems and other debris are directed to side discharge channels. The final stage of the table is for manual sorting. The stainless steel table is equipped with a frequency drive and set on wheels but also comes with adjustable legs. Details:
