Efficient final treatment for prolonging shelf life

The KDB 120 dipping bath is used for the final treatment of peeled or cut fruit and vegetables. The water mixed with the appropriate additives ensures a prolonged shelf life of the treated products. The machine enables resource-saving and reliable treatment of the products due to the low, adjustable filling quantity and the adjustable retention time. 

The dipping bath is filled with the peeled or cut product by means of the feeding hopper. The filling process can be automated using an optional ascending conveyor belt.
The product is transported through the filled dipping tank and additionally sprayed from above so that floating products are also reliably treated. Subsequently, an optional pre-drying process (blower) takes place via the discharge, after which the product is transferred into containers or to an optionally available conveyor belt.
The KDB processes, for example, sliced and/or peeled apples with a retention time of 30 seconds and a capacity of up to 750 kg per hour.

Dipping bath for cut fruit
Ideal for the final treatment of peeled or sliced fruit or vegetables. Here you can see the machine being used for sliced apple segments.

Benefits

Slices of apple undergo final treatment in the dipping bath KDB 120 to extend their shelf life.

Minimal consumption of water and additives thanks to an adjustable filling quantity

The function of the machine is already guaranteed when used with a minimum water quantity of only 24 liters. Depending on the amount and size of the product, the filling quantity can be infinitely adjusted. As a result, the KDB 120 enables a particularly resource-saving and thus economical final treatment using small amounts of water and additives such as Nature Seal®, CITROCIDE® PLUS or powder dissolved in water.  

KRONEN benefits

Adjustable retention time for reliable final treatment

The retention time of the product in the dipping bath can be adjusted via the speed of the cleated belt. A guaranteed retention time of 30 to 120 seconds is enabled to ensure that the products are reliably treated with the additives. This also makes the KDB suitable for disinfecting products. The open design guarantees extremely gentle treatment of the products.
