Reject/Sortation Equipment

Thompson Scale Company offers a wide variety of pneumatically operated devices for rejecting, diverting or sorting packages.

Each device is operated by a double-acting solenoid valve, and includes a lockable shut-off valve and filter-regulator, and typically includes pneumatic poly tube fittings. Some devices are available with our without conveyors, and many can be manufactured in either painted mild steel or stainless steel and rated for wash-down environments

Air-Blast-RejectBlast air nozzle is intended for use in removing lighter weight packages that have a good height to weight ratio. For example, a frozen pizza does not offer sufficient surface area on its edge to be a good candidate for this style device.
