Sorting of in-shell Pecans (NIS)

The Multiscan S30P is a compact system specially designed for in-shell Pecans sorting by external quality, color, size and shape. Thanks to its high versatility and efficiency, it allows multiple configurations of its sorting parameters to respond to the different needs of our customers. It is an ideal equipment to reduce labor and space required for machinery.

Equipped with SpinSort technology, it transports the fruit while producing a 360º turn, achieving a comprehensive inspection and detecting quality problems more efficiently with state-of-the-art vision technology.

Increased quality of the final product

High versatility of use and sorting by a wide variety of parameters

Classification in 3 fully configurable outputs

Able to separate by variety and the only solution on the market detecting germinated nuts

Savings in labor and footprint


Color sorting of in-shell Pecans (NIS/NIH)

The Multiscan V20P is a high capacity system specially designed for sorting of in shell Pecans by color at the hulling process. Through the use of advanced vision technology, it efficiently sorts identifying unwanted product or that to be reworked. With this solution, Pecan processors will optimize their processes with up to 3-output sorting, reducing the need for labor and the space required for machinery.

Increased quality of the final product

High efficiency in color sorting

High processing capacity

Classification in up to 3 fully configurable outputs

Savings in labor and footprint



SpinSort technology combines innovative vision and transport systems for a more efficient detection of quality, color or shape issues. This technology, developed by Multiscan and unique in the world, maximizes the inspected surface of the fruit by rotating it completely, for a comprehensive 360º analysis. A differential value for higher efficiencies to obtain quality products.
