What is it?
A method of
grading lobsters using colour to indicate the destination crate.
lobster is placed on or removed from a digital scale, a colour appears
on a screen to indicate which destination crate to place the lobster
in. Each crate is assigned a color corresponding to the weight range
for the crate. All lobsters that show green go in the green crate.
Those that show blue go in the blue crate. And so on ...
Why use it?
colour is easier and more accurate than grading by digital weight
alone. Detecting color only involves the eyes while converting a
digital weight to a particular destination crate engages the whole
brain. Thus color grading is less tiring for experienced operators and
it is easier for an untrained operator to grade lobsters using colour.
Changing weight grades is simplified. The result is more accurate grading, reduced costs and happier employees.
Sorter software may be fitted to existing scales and makes reverse
grading with an existing scale possible, if the scale has a printer
outlet. !Click here
