AU: GP Graders to supply cherry grower Stemilt

GP Graders have been selected to manufacture and install a full electronic cherry grading line for Stemilt Growers in 2013. The 20 lane machine fully equipped with the latest defect grading technology aims to be Stemilt’s lowest cost line to operate whilst producing a superior export quality product able to meet tough export standards and the rigor of extended transportation times.

AirJet Defect Grader

Following the resounding recent success of GP Graders defect grading technology, sales of the company’s cherry grading technology has been very strong in the US and around the world. Superior technology and gentle handling were the main criteria in Stemilt Growers, the world’s largest cherry packer, selecting GP Graders as provider of their new AirJetTM cherry grading line.

GP Graders are the world’s largest supplier of cherry grading and packing machinery with almost 300 lines installed with most of the world’s leading cherry packers. GP Graders, in their partnership with Ellips of Holland, provide leading world first technology in the defect detection and removal of both internal and external defects in cherries.

The central reject belts are empty due to 80% of defect cherries removed by the AirJet defect grader.

The software can detect cracks, splits, wind rub, fresh splits, nose rot, stem cracks and decay as well as shape defects such as doubles and spurs. GP Graders stands far apart from its competitors as it is able to account for the full spectrum of defects prevalent on cherries, not just the detecting of some softness. GP Graders’ customers who pack to an export standard typically remove 80% of all defect cherries. A truly remarkable outcome.

Superior color separation technology.

The technology will be on display on 7 new lines in Chile and 7 new lines in Australia this Southern Hemisphere season. GP Graders invites all its past and future customers to contact us for a personal tour of the machinery and evaluate our cutting edge technology.
