Infeed & Treatment

TOMRA Fresh Food | Compac's citrus infeed solutions ensure a gentle transition from bin or field box to the sorter. Options include:


Bin Tipping

Our bin tipping technology is fully automated and efficient and dumping bins of citrus gently onto belts or into water flumes for transportation. Our systems cater for between 45-100 bins per hour.



Small Fruit Eliminator 

Using a series of steel conveyor rollers with a gap between each roller, undersized citrus are redirected before they reach the grader. Fixed and variable options are available.




Sanitizing is performed to reduce mould and bacteria load on fruit. Disinfection of the fruits surface is part of the overall sanitation process.



Citrus is washed and brushed prior to treatment. Washing units prepare the surface for fungicides and protective coatings as well as enhancing the appearance of your fruit.



Drying Room and Tunnel

TOMRA Fresh Food | Compac provides a full range of drying units including a full drying room and conventional and vertical tunnels. All options control temperature and humidity as the citrus passes through to ensure moisture is removed.
