Beltuza Spectra: New Level of Sorting Precision

All-in-one optical sorter for Internal, External, Material-type Defects


New optical sorter Beltuza Spectra

Hiroshima, Japan; July 1, 2021 - Satake announces a debut of its latest optical sorter, Beltuza Spectra, that elevates the meaning of precision in optical sorting to an entirely new level. Utilizing infra-red, visual, and X-ray data with patented sorting algorithm and AI (Artificial Intelligence), Beltuza Spectra precisely sorts a wide range of previously impossible defective products such as tree-nuts with internal insect damage.

X-ray is often used to detect foreign material by capturing differences in product density, however, Beltuza Spectra equipped with AI can differentiate less dense good product from similarly less dense damaged product. In Almond kernels for example, doubles and pin-hole insect damages can be accurately differentiated at high processing capacity of up to 10 MT per hour.

Like other optical sorters by Satake, Beltuza Spectra is also equipped with Satake Smart Sensitivity that automatically creates optimal sensitivity setting making it very easy to operate. Newly added is the patented "MIX Sensitivity" function. Utilizing both infra-red and visible wavelength, it endows Spectra an additional level of precision in detecting defective products with identical colors to the accepts. Exterior detection system is also further boosted by the shape sorting function.

Matching the best of interior, exterior, and material-type detection technologies, Beltuza Spectra achieves the highest level in sorting precision as a versatile sorter with a wide range of other potential applications such as packaged foods, in-shell tree-nuts, etc., without compromising neither the quality nor quantity of final product.
