Title (EN) FRUIT AND VEGETABLE QUALITY CONTROL DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE CONTROLE DE LA QUALITE DES FRUITS ET DES LEGUMES
Abstract:
(EN) Device for inspecting fruit and vegetable products in general, and fruit in particular, by spectroscopic analysis of refracted light, comprising at least one runway (2) arranged to receive an alignment of fruits from a loose mass of fruits, means (51, 121-122) for advancing said fruits along said runway, and, for laterally illuminating said fruits, means (91) positioned in correspondence with means (92) arranged to collect the refracted light which passes through the fruit, to concentrate it and to feed it to spectroscopic analysis means, at least one portion of the base of the runway being provided with an aperture at which means are provided to collect the refracted light which has passed through the fruit.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un dispositif permettant de contrôler les fruits et les légumes, et plus particulièrement les fruits, par analyse spectroscopique de la lumière réfractée, ce dispositif comprenant au moins un chemin de roulement (2) agencé pour accueillir un alignement de fruits provenant d'un volume de fruits en vrac; un dispositif (51, 121-122) pour faire avancer les fruits le long du chemin de roulement et, pour éclairer latéralement les fruits, un dispositif (91) positionné de façon à correspondre avec le dispositif (92) agencé pour collecter la lumière réfractée traversant le fruit, la concentrer et l'amener dans le dispositif d'analyse spectroscopique; au moins une partie de la base du chemin de roulement étant pourvue d'un orifice au niveau duquel les dispositifs sont placés pour collecter la lumière réfractée ayant traversé le fruit.
