AIRJETTM BLUEBERRY VISION

The AirJet® Blueberry grader utilizes Ultra High Definition (HD) cameras to provide the sharpest picture resolution for size, color, softness, shrivel and defect analysis. This advanced level of analysis is unprecedented in the fresh produce industry and places GP Graders firmly at the forefront of the blueberry grading industry.

AirJetTM Vision features a 6 megapixel multispectral camera setup for each lane! We are taking up to 21,000 images of fruit every second equating to 1,890,000,000 (almost 2 billion) pixels per second. This is unprecedented in the analysis of fresh produce.

SIZE SEPARATION


The dimensions of each product are calculated using multiple images of the product. The AirJet™ Vision Blueberry technology detects the stem connection or bloom. In this way, we know which diameter must be measured. Specialized algorithms determine the height and width of the product. Diameter and shape are also determined.

COLOR SEPARATION

The AirJet® Blueberry grader achieves perfect color separation that provides consistency and uniform pack color. The grader’s software and revolutionary camera technology work in combination to remove red and green blueberries from full blue products accurately and timely.
