SIZE SEPARATION

The dimensions of each product are calculated using multiple images of the product. Our software takes multiple diameter measurements to determine the maximum width of the product. Specialized algorithms determine the shape of the product if you wish to separate flat blueberries from more round shaped products.

COLOR SEPARATION

The color module enables you to specify the colour that you wish to grade the fruit using live feedback from the high-resolution cameras. The AirJet® Blueberry grader achieves perfect color separation that provides consistency and uniform pack color. The software is able to remove red and green blueberries from full blue products.

SOFTNESS

The AirJet® Blueberry grader is a world first! Its advanced camera and software technology allows blueberry packers to separate blueberries according to softness / firmness. In fact the software allows the separation 5-7 categories of softness to firmness, i.e. very soft (IQF), semi-soft, medium, semi-firm and firm. Separation of fruit according to softness / firmness will determine which market to send your produce, i.e. freeze grade, local markets or export markets.

DEFECT SORTING

GP Graders’ AirJet® Blueberry technology is able to detect external defects. It successfully detects and removes internal defects that affect blueberries such as bruising, cuts, splits, cell breakdown, shriveling and compression damage.

The detection of both internal and external defects means consistent and uniform removal of reject-grade blueberries, resulting in a huge reduction in the number of seasonal sorting staff required.
