Pearlception 2.0

Grade, sort and pack millions of oysters


Pearlception 2.0 is the first high-speed, laser-guided oyster processing system designed and built in the U.S. This revolutionary model offers unprecedented oyster sorting and grading capabilities together with an intuitive, operator-interface system. Pearlception automates sorting, increases productivity, prevents waste and delivers an outstanding ROI.


Incorporating functions of sensing, actuation and control, Pearlception 2.0 is the first “smart system” processor designed to grade, sort and package more than 6,000 oysters an hour. Using real time data and predictive modeling, Pearlception is capable of semi-autonomous operation using preset parameters of length and width or length and volume, grade positions, box counts, and totals and provides real time data on grades, box counts, and totals.

Pearlception 2.0 Features

  • Vibrating, self-loading up-feed features quickly moves oysters up a conveying elevator with staggered flights for steady loading
  • Cross-feed delivers oysters to the singulator tube where they are turned on two points and accelerated onto the conveyor for precise laser grading
  • Six air nozzles move oysters quickly and gently to one of six pre-set stations for boxing or bagging
  • OysterLogic program tracks graded oysters and stops system with alarm if no boxes are available allowing operator to replace and restart system with no product loss
