After harvesting by hand, the sensitive fruits are sorted. Today this is done by modern sorting machines, which classify the products (fruits, vegetables) according to different parameters. The extremely efficient and gentle dumping/unloading of apples and pears from crates into water (wet dumping) has established itself as the new state-of-the-art in modern food production plants. In this process, the bin is immersed into a water tank and if possible additionally turned (reduction of the process time). Due to the lower density of apples they swim in the water. The apples floating in the water flow via water channels (made of stainless steel) in the direction of the next process step (on the downstream dryer) by the artificially generated flow (by pump). Thus, sorting and packing machines can be continuously fed in very gentle way with a large amount of fruits. There is also a solution for pears available.
