The AirJet® sorts blueberries according to size, color and softness/firmness. It also separates the blueberries with defects such as shrivel, stem on, splits and marks. Fast, gentle and accurate, GP Graders’ AirJet® grader sorts blueberries at a speed of 40 units per second per lane, yielding extremely high productivity while maintaining grading accuracy.
A GP Graders’ 16 Lane Blueberry machine, installed in North America last year, has completed its first outstanding season. Interest for the AirJet® Blueberry Grader is coming from growers, packers, and supermarkets in both North and South America around this launch; and the tried, and tested tonnage output of this machine.
The AirJet® Blueberry Grader is built for speed. These conveyors are carrying blueberries, which run at 40 units per second which translates to around 175kg, or 385lb per hour per lane. On a standard machine this equates to more than 2.8 tonne per hour. This level of productivity is 60% greater than any other competitive grader on the market today.
There is no comparison for the superior Camera Technology used in conjunction with the AirJet® Blueberry Grader. This new technology consists of High Definition (HD) cameras which provide the sharpest picture resolution for size, color, softness and defect analysis. The AirJet® Blueberry captures 21 images of the total surface area of each blueberry for unprecedented vision analysis.
As the end consumer continues to demand a premium blueberry, the AirJet® Blueberry is the only grader able to deliver perfectly sorted produce; in a fast and economical way, that guarantees packers, growers, and supermarkets the best return.
