Sizing and Sorting

Capay Canyon Ranch continues to modernize and enhance our sizing and sorting capabilities. Using a range of innovative techniques, from sizers, electronic color and laser sorters, aspirators, gravity tables and metal detectors, we strive to process a superlative almond. In 2011, we purchased a state-of-the-art sizer, which allows us to reliably size approximately 200,000 pounds of almonds per day.  In 2013, we implemented the latest in sorting technology, the Satake Evolution electronic color sorter.  This sorter allows us to simultaneously extract eight different selections at a rate of 40,000lbs per hour.  It is a truly amazing piece of equipment and one which allows us reliably achieve a high standard product.
