Internal defects have nowhere to hide with world-leading Ellips TrueSort™ technology. It precisely analyses the internal quality of each potato and detects a multitude of defects at incredible speed such as internal browning, flecking, glazing, freeze damage, dry matter, hollow hearts and more.
Whatever the size or shape of your potatoes, GranTorino grading machine handles them all. Its unique rotating carrier creates a 360° view of each potato, allowing you to analyze the entire surface for quality characteristics and defects such as wireworm, common scab, sprouting, black and silver scurf, green potatoes, growth cracks, mechanical damage, punctures and more.
The GranTorino potato grading machine volumetrically weighs every potato at high-speed using images from advanced cameras. Our unique TrueSort™ software also monitors the average product weight and capacity per hour.
Every potato rotates under the camera as 40 images are taken to measure the entire surface. This lets the machine calculate the precise diameter, length and surface area. It will also recognize shape related defects or doubles (2 potatoes in 1 cup).
Ultrafine color separations are created using TrueSort™ software allowing operators to quickly create or modify color profiles for red, white or yellow potatoes. Then using live feedback from the cameras, the potato color is accurately graded.
TrueSort’s™ easy-to-use dashboard gives real-time data such as the percentage of defective potatoes, the amount of waste and the distribution of different quality aspects for each batch. This lets you make accurate operational decisions on-to-go whilst also giving you the freedom to incorporate data from your sorting process into dashboards and ERP systems.
From infeed to packaging, end-to-end traceability is crucial to guaranteeing potato quality and safety. These insights can help improve your profitability, optimize your operating efficiency, analyze yields, and reduce food waste. It’s why every package is labeled so it can be tracked and traced back to the original grower and the field it came from.
The robust and reliable Elisam GranTorino is an industry-leading potato grading machine. Its unique mechanical design delivers gentle, yet fast and accurate handling of any type of potato. Everything your business needs to accelerate its success.
