New 16 lane Blueberry Grader installed in California
Our new AirJet® Blueberry grader has been up and operating in California this summer and is producing stellar results. Our AirJet® grader is able to separate blueberries into 5 categories of softness / firmness, sort according to size and colour and separate out shrivelled products.
With over 16 lanes the machine is processing 6,000lb, or 2,700kg per hour, which makes it the highest productivity machine in the market today at 30% more output than its closest competitor. The high productivity is the result of our patented in-feed hopper. This unique GP Graders’ innovation removes the requirement for feed belts onto the conveyor, which have proven to be unsanitary and very problematic with blueberries
