    Lemon & lime grading technology

    External quality

    Our high-resolution cameras enable better visual identification of the shape and characteristics of the products. Our grading technology allows customers to quickly establish “variety specific” grading parameters and programs. Defects can be identified based upon threshold on parameters such as, defect severity in size, severity in area percentage on the whole surface or number of defects on the surface. TrueSort provides consistent detection of the most prevalent external defects such as blemish, corrugations, mold, oleicellosis, navel deformations and more.

    Colour separation

    The colour of the citrus fruit is highly represenative of the quality and ripeness of the fruit. Accurate colour separations are obtained through our TrueSort™ colour module that enables operators to quickly create or modify colour profiles. For example, the operator can easily select the maximum percentage of the citrus fruit’s surface which is allowed to have a shade of green.

    Size separation

    To measure the entire surface, the citrus fruit is rotated under the camera and multiple images are taken. Using these images the diameter, length and volume of the lemon can be determined. Sizing defects can also be detected such as misshaped lemons.


    Using loadcells, TrueSort™ can accurately measure the weight of your citrus fruit at a top speed of 15 products per second per lane. The system automatically corrects for the weight drift of each cup caused by temperature differences or the build-up of dust during the day.
