BLUEBERRY PACKING HAS JUST BEEN REVOLUTIONIZED
GP Graders’ AirJet® Blueberry technology will revolutionize your business. It will allow you to open export markets and get premium prices for your very best product. Our technology will all but eliminate the requirement for sorting staff while substantially increasing your production throughput with greater accuracy. Our AirJet® Blueberry grading technology puts you in control of what market prices you will achieve, thereby substantially increasing your company’s profitability.
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.
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.
The color module enables you to specify the color 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.
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.
HYGIENE & SANITATION
The AirJet® Blueberry is designed according to strict hygiene and sanitation standards. The design of the machine is robust using food-grade materials and can be washed down after the operating shift.
