Blueberry grading technology
Ellips leads the industry with its ability to detect both internal and external defects of blueberries. The Ellips TrueSort™ Quality system accurately detects the most common defects such as flower, slipskin, bruising, cuts, cell breakdown, compression damages, and shriveling (dehydration). In addition, the software allows you to separate blueberries into different classes based on softness, firmness, and bloom. This is how you will get your blueberries sorted for premium, local and export demands. The ultimate result is blueberries that look good, taste good and can travel.
“100% surface inspection for unmatched results in selecting and classifying blueberries“
The Elifab BerryClass achieves perfect color separation by using live feedback from the high-resolution cameras. With the TrueSort software, you can grade multiple color classes and make sure that there are no green and red berries within the required blue colored berries.
Softness & acidity
How soft is the blueberry? What percentage of the blueberry is soft – and what is the softest spot? Our system detects it all! Our software allows you to separate blueberries according to different categories of softness / firmness. This separation will determine which market to send your produce, i.e. freeze grade, local markets or export markets.
Our latest software upgrade also allows you to separate different grades of sour blueberries.
From small to Jumbo berries, the TrueSort™ software takes multiple diameter measurements to determine the size of every kind of blueberry. The blueberry rotates under the camera, so you are able to measure the entire surface. Specialized algorithms determine the shape of the product. This way you can also separate the flat blueberries from the more round-shaped.
