VolScan Profiler 600


MEASURING WHOLE FRUIT VOLUME

Fruit scan samples

Quality components of fruits and vegetables are classified into the external such as size (weight, volume and dimensions), colour, shape (diameter/depth ratio), external defects etc. and the internal such as sugar content, acid content, firmness, maturity etc and internal characteristics.

Volume is an important physical property of agricultural materials. The method most commonly used to determine volume is water displacement. However simple, the water displacement method produces one figure which is manually recorded.

Agricultural products have the characteristic of being 'low value added' when compared with other industrial commodities. As a result, the application of state-of-the-art technology to the agricultural sector has been slow; it is only in relatively recent times that various up-to-date techniques have reached the point of practical implementation.

One such example is the use of the VolScan Profiler, a benchtop laser-based scanner that measures the volume of products. This measurement system offers considerable advantages over displacement techniques which purely measure volume.


WHAT ELSE HAS A VOLSCAN PROFILER SCANNED?

Recently we have also been employing the VolScan Profiler for the dimensional assessment of a whole range of different products highlighting the range of additional testing possibilities.

A small selection of these with which we have been working are shown below.

Other sample types

Apart from its application in the bakery sector, whether it's fruit, vegetables, meats, or even packaging, the VolScan Profiler can give you valuable information to help you bring better products to the market.
