Optical grading = creating added value

Optical grading is the most accurate method for sorting large batches of potatoes. The Smart Grader EVO has been developed for exactly that purpose. The machine grades the products very accurately by diameter, length, shape and visible defects such as cracks, bumps, scabs, wire needles or damage. At the same time, the Smart Grader EVO can also flawlessly sort stones and clods from a batch.

A special vibrating table singulates the potatoes before they end up on the rollers.

Why grading?

Proper grading is important. A better graded product simply yields a higher price. That starts with storage. By removing as many stones, clods and damaged tubers from the product flow as possible, the product enters storage with the highest possible quality. When storing out, grading is even more important, because the customer wants to know exactly what he is getting. Here too, an accurate grading of quality and size can yield a higher price. And less deduction due to tare. Grading is often done by human hands at the reading table. The Smart Grader EVO does it more accurately and with the same accuracy 24 hours a day. In addition, all grading information is stored per batch, so that you know exactly what you deliver and the buyer knows exactly what he is getting. Measuring is knowing, guessing is missing!
