Turnover and Inspection Conveyors
All fresh produce which is destined for the supermarket is required to be inspected for freshness, any none-acceptable imperfections or substandard sizes.
This can be carried out either at the grower's facilities or at the supply warehouses. To inspect the amount of fruit and vegetables supplied to the UK supermarkets by hand would be impossible and this is where turnover and inspection conveyors are used.
Our video below shows an incline conveyor where the produce being inspected (here it is potatoes) are dropped into a hopper and then transported along the incline to the turnover conveyor. The product is undamaged by this process and it allows the produce to be inspected quickly and efficiently to ensure it is top quality.
