Clean and gentle peeling and washing of tuber vegetables

The potato peeling machine PL 40K is the proven basic model for peeling and washing potatoes, carrots, beetroot, cabbage turnips (kohlrabi) and other root vegetables in small and medium-sized enterprises. 

The standard equipment with an abrasive system enables paper-thin, gentle removal of the peel. The entire cycle of filling, peeling and emptying takes approximately 2–3 minutes. 

The PL 40K offers the possibility of switching from the peeling function to a pure washing function in a few simple steps.  By replacing the carborundum peeling insert with a rubber-coated insert, the peeling machine can be transformed into a practical washing machine for tuber vegetables within three minutes. 

The filling and peeling process can be controlled centrally by means of an automatic control system (optional). The PL 40K can therefore be ideally integrated into complete processing lines for the washing, peeling and cutting/dicing of root vegetables.
