Compac's pear infeed solutions ensure a gentle transition from bin or field box to the sorter. Options include:
Our bin tipping technology is fully automated and efficient and dumping bins of pears gently into water flumes for transportation. Our systems cater for between 45-100 bins per hour.
Using a mesh-like conveyor, under-sized pears are redirected before they reach the grader.
Compac's pear treatment options include:
There is no better way to ensure a gentle transportation of pears than with our stainless steel water flume transportation and pumping systems, custom-made to customers specific requirements.
The washer gently and effectively removes spray residue, pests and other contaminants from pears before sorting.
Compac's stainless steel air blades ensure pears are dried and debris removed. Their unique design reduces noise pollution in the packhouse.
Compac's closed drying room controls temperature and humidity, ensuring pears are dry and ready for packing. The benefits of our closed room solution are: better control, lower maintenance and less energy consumption.
Central to Compac's pear solutions is our state-of-the-art sorting technology. Your production requirements and capacity will determine whether single, dual or multi-lane sorting capabilities are right for your packhouse. What differentiates our sorting solutions is our innovative, industry-leading Spectrim, Inspectra and InVision pear grading systems. Both systems reduce labor requirements and provide you with unparalleled sorting consistency and accuracy.
Compac's weighing and pack optimization software delivers unsurpassed accuracy by meeting pack specifications, reducing pear giveaway and maximizing profits.
Our intelligent, easy-to-use software enables intuitive recognition of fruit types and will adjust grading accordingly. Our systems can accurately perceive dark colors, subtle browns, soft pinks and stripes commonly found in different varieties of pear.
Keep bad pears out of a good box and reduce fruit giveaway with Compac's Inspectra - a non-invasive solution for internal defect grading. The NIR spectrometer can detect defects including brix.
Compac's packing solutions have been designed with pears in mind, ensuring a particularly gentle transition and handling. We have many pear packing solutions to meet the different needs of our customers including:
Compac's soft-head rotary bin filling solution is particularly gentle on pears, distributing them evenly into the bin. Sensors detect when the bin is full and move on to the next. Water bin filling functions are also available for gentle, high capacity water filling.
Compac's tray filler is an efficient, gentle system designed to move pears from a cross conveyor into trays. Height adjustable, the filler can accommodate different tray sizes, small boxes or cartons. Customers using this system have seen significant reductions in their tray filling costs.
Compac's manual or semi-auto bagging systems use unique optimizers to select the optimal combination of fruit across the sorter, ensuring accurate bag weights are achieved, with the minimum possible giveaway.
Compac's technology allows punnet, tote and clam-shell filling by both count and weight to ensure the optimal quantity of pears in the punnet.
Reduce your labor requirements with our automated Carton Handling Systems (CHS).
The CHS tracks cartons from the sorter and distributes them to different destinations within the packhouse for palletizing and shipping. These intelligent systems can manage multiple boxes, products and destinations simultaneously. CHS integrates with the Compac Pack Printing system to automate carton labeling and data transfer to your ERP system for traceability, compliance and stock control.
Compac's pallet handling solutions improve efficiency. Our robotics ensure efficient and safe transportation of pallets around the packhouse, especially for high volume operations.
Compac's data and integration solutions track and record all pears as they cross the sorter and move through the packhouse. This information can then be shared with other packhouse systems such as ERP, traceability systems and carton printing applications. Reports on the performance of your operation can be generated, allowing you to feed this information back into your operation, making changes to optimize efficiency. We also facilitate remote sampling of various grades and sizes of pears for packhouse quality control.
