Engineered for potato processors, the Key Technology Sort-to-Grade feature is available for all belt-driven G6 optical sorters. The software-driven intelligence enables sorters to grade by count, accepting or rejecting each defective piece; accept/reject decisions are based on how potentially passing a particular defect will affect the overall final product quality in comparison to the processor’s specifications. Target grade can be defined as a percentage of tolerable defects in the bag or a percentage of removal of incoming defects. The sample size also is user defined, according to the grading practice used in the processing plant.
