Improve and simplify your grading process with Laitram Machinery's proprietary grading technologies. A Laitram Grading System also reduces your labor needs, and ensures that your customer gets the right-sized product every time. Our innovative system feeds, orients, and grades a broad spectrum of product with reliability and precision, reducing the margin of error associated with visual grading.
Consistency of size within a specific count range is very important. Poor uniformity indicates a mixing of sizes, affects customer satisfaction and costs processors money per pound. Tighter uniformity allows for greater pricing control, while ensuring that your customer receives the right-sized product…every time.
BETTER UNIFORMITY = IMPROVED PROFIT PER POUND
Uniformity matters! Consistency of size within a specific count range is very important, resulting in increased profits to processors.
Laitram’s PRG (Precision Roller Grader) technology improves and simplifies the grading Process. These graders seek to achieve the highest uniformity output on graded food products. Laitram’s innovative feed system, along with precisión controls, offers food processors the best opportunity to pack a high-quality, uniform product.
After the feed system releases and orients product, grading (sorting) occurs as the product falls into grading lanes and moves down diverging, continuously rotating rollers. Product is sorted by size, starting with the smallest product and ending with the largest.
The Laitram PRG Graders are available in two configurations:
Both configurations feed, orient, and grade a broad variety of products. With high-precision, electro-polished stainless steel rollers, a PRG Grader offers reliability and simple, real-time precise adjustments. Its hygienic design meets rigorous food safety standards, conforming to the American Meat Institute’s “10 Principles of Sanitary Design”.
A PRG Grader improves uniformity, quality and consistency.
A PRG Grading System offers different solutions to fit your specific needs. Multiple layouts are available. The standard PRG configuration includes:
Laitram Machinery’s Process Control System provides processors with reliable information, allowing fast and easy error detection that simplifies operations, while producing significant cost savings. The flexible design can be reapplied to quickly and easily control other systems. Operating from a single location via a user-friendly touch-screen interface, the control system is accessed remotely through the internet; this ensures that processors can track their operations...anywhere, any time. Features
"Laitram Machinery’s PRG Grader has proven to be an integral part of our business with exceptional quality, craftsmanship and precision shrimp grading. The PRG allows us to process high volumes at capacities of 5,500 to 6,000 pounds per hour on both headless and head-on shrimp, with no piggy-backing and uniformity ratios of 1.3 or better. Our operators now have more time to focus on other priorities because our new graders require very little maintenance with the automatic lubrication system and are easy to clean. Moreover, Laitram’s service, support and responsiveness have been outstanding."
