For peeling, trimming, cutting, washing and drying up to 600 kg/h of tuber vegetables

With the semi-automatic processing line, the product is transported to the peeling machine, peeled and then trimmed directly afterwards on the roller sorting table. It is subsequently automatically transported to the cutting machine, where it is cut and then forwarded to the washing machine. After the washing process, it is placed into spin baskets situated on a basket carousel. One person places the filled baskets into the spinners one after the other. The product can then be further processed.

Excellent final results are achieved due to the exact and continuous cut with the KUJ-V, the professional preparation at the sorting table and the effective yet gentle washing and spinning. 

The following machines or solutions are integrated into the line:

  1. Conveying: PLUS inclined conveyor belt with cleats
  2. Peeling: PL 40K potato peeling machine with different abrasive grain sizes, an optional peel collector and a peeling basket reinforced with a perforated plate
  3. Preparation: RVT 20/25 roller sorting table
  4. Conveying: PLUS inclined conveyor belt with cleats
  5. CuttingKUJ-V cube, strip & slice cutting machine, optionally with various cutting inserts
  6. Conveying: PLUS inclined conveyor belt
  7. Washing: GEWA 3800 ECO HELICAL washing machine with vibration outfeed and an optional measuring and dosing system or UVC water reactor.
  8. Drying: KS-100 PLUS with a basket carousel

Application options and capacities:

The line processes up to 600 kg of product per hour. It is used for the abrasive peeling and preparation of tuber vegetables including potatoes, carrots, beets and celery.  The products can then be further processed – whole or cut – for example packaged as packed raw, blanched, cooked or frozen products.

The raw products are processed whole. Only long products such as carrots or radishes should be previously cut into two or three parts to achieve a perfect peeling result. The diameter of the product should not exceed 150 mm.  

Pumpkins and squashes cannot be processed on this line. The line can be optionally offered with the AMS 220 peeling machine for flat pumpkins.
