How it works
The G5s Grader - includes grader, elevator and separator.
The G5s Grader is a magnificent piece of machinery developed over several years in partnership with local South Australian companies to produce a cutting edge product for the oyster industry.
The G5s grader is fast, accurate and easy to use. It is also compact, having a small workspace footprint. The G5s grader has one moving part that distributes the product.
How it works
The oysters travel up an elevator and into a custom made separator that delivers the oysters into the grader in single file.
The G5s grader uses a custom 4-axis imaging system.
There are 4 separate scanners that capture an image of each oyster from 4 different angles as it is falling.
Electronics and software developed by Oystek combines the 4 images to determine the length of each oyster.
The oyster is then directed into one of 8 outputs by a curved chute called the J-Curve, which rotates into the appropriate position for each oyster size.
The sizes for the outputs are setup through the touch-screen PC and saved as a grading scheme.
Schemes can be easily edited and created as required specific to grower needs.
Speed: The G5s Grader can achieve high average grading rates subject to the feed-in system.
Dimensions: Length 3.45m - Width 1.25m - Height 2.55m (grader, elevator and separator).
Power: 200V - 240V single phase AC 50-60Hz (Requires separate dedicated mains supply, alternately a 1KW U.P.S. is recommended).
Materials: Stainless steel frame and high strength ABS plastic housing.
Oystek has also designed a standard range of ancillary equipment including hoppers, washers and inspection conveyors.
These can be built to your specifications if required.
The Grind-Off is a hand-held tool that uses a spinning cutter to remove barnacle and over catch from oysters.
It saves time, is quick and easy to use, and reduces the potential of repetitive stress injury.
Powered by a standard 24V, 2Amp power supply (included).
