NDT on Agri Products

Hi All,

I am looking for various NDT methods - suggestions and recommendations to check / test Agri Products including and specifically for Vegetables and Friuts for sorting or ripening process.

Thanks in advance

Simon Amallraja

There are in Italy an important institute in the area wine and apples, perhaps they have any ideas: http://www.ismaa.it/

There are many methods that were used to inspect fruit quality. You can look at spectroscopy as well as acoustics. Do you look for a more specific application?

There are x-ray based equipment for high speed sorting of fruits and vegetables (my colleagues in BARC were developing one for checking out mangoes meant for export to USA). Spectrometric sorting (based on light, color) coupled with high speed image analysis can also do the job if the fruits are naturally ripened. Probably system integraters may be able to put together different off the shelf systems to achieve a specific output.

Would be happy to be associated with any such development work!

More specifically for storing the Vegetables and Fruits in Cold Storage facilities after harvest, before export and or local distribution.

This should help the buyer - including the consumer to buy good quality products from any store acroos India or anywhere.

If you have done similar projects, I would like to understand the technique and possibly market to system to some of our hot potential customer

S.V.Swamy: I would like to get in touch with your collegue in BARC. Kindly give me the contact details.



Regards

NEW! The PragmaPro Instrument Platform

The PragmaPro is based on a modular cartridge technology and supports various NDT instrument modal
...
ities such as UT, PAUT, ECT and many more. This new platform is based on a machined, powder-coated aluminum frame for shock-proofness, best sealing qualities and maximum heat dissipation. This is practical to extend the outdoor temperature range and/or to extend the power injected in the transducers. The PragmaPro is aiming at a very wide range of applications, such as weld scanning, corrosion mapping and composite testing.

oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
