Avocados, sorting by external characteristics and firmness

Greefa offers machinery to sort advocados by external and internal characteristics.

MSE Combicup / CXL

To sort avocados, you can choose between the MSE Combicup or MSE CXL. Both sorting units have special cups, which ensure that the avocados keep lying properly during transport along the system.

The MSE type is a tried and tested system of which more than 1,000 have been sold worldwide. The maximum speed is 5 avocados per second per lane. The system is available with 2, 4, 6, 8 or a maximum of 10 lanes.

Firmness
The intelligent Firmness Detector (iFD) allows for detection of the firmness of the fruit. You can give an accurate forecast and guarantee with respect to the storage life and ideal consumption time of the avocados. The firmness sensor of the iFD module takes up to 20 measurements around the fruit during sorting. The firmness is determined on the basis of these measurements.
