User-friendly and gentle spinning PLUS optimal hygiene

The KS-7 PLUS is the standard model of the KRONEN vegetable and lettuce spin-dryers. It spin-dries a wide range of products from lettuce to cut vegetables and fruit and right through to canned products, pickled food products or caviar efficiently and reliably with seven spinning speeds.  
The KS-7 PLUS vegetable and lettuce spin-dryer can be integrated into processing lines or used as a stand-alone machine. As a component of processing lines, it is positioned downstream of the washing process, after which the washed products are filled into the spin baskets and manually placed into the KS-7 PLUS. 

The robust, open design enables

  • ergonomic operation due to the low lift-in height
  • Optimal hygiene: no dirt traps due to screws etc. in the spinning area 
  • Easy water drainage for an optimal spin-drying result

The spin-dryer is suitable for processing lettuce, herbs, cut fruit and vegetables and many other products. It also reduces the dripping-off times of canned products such as mushrooms and pickled vegetables or defrosted products. Other food products such as prawns, caviar (substitute) or even sesame seeds can also be spun dry with the spin-dryer. Mesh inserts for the spin baskets are optionally available for fine-particle products. Depending on the product, the machine achieves high capacities and a low residual moisture content of the products.

Benefits

The open design makes the spin-drying area easily accessible for cleaning

Easy and quick cleaning due to an open, hygienic design

The open design makes the centrifuge area easy to access for quick cleaning and maintenance work. In addition, there are no dirt traps caused by screws in the spin area, and the lid locking mechanism is also located in the rear machine housing. 

KRONEN benefits

99 memory locations for adjustment to suit different products

The spinning speed and duration can be adjusted to suit the specific product and stored in the 99 freely programmable memory locations. This means that a wide variety of products can be spun dry and dewatered gently and efficiently.

KRONEN benefits

User-friendly even when frequent product changes are necessary

The ergonomic lift-in height and the lid locking mechanism, which prevents the centrifuge from being opened during the spin cycle, make the spin-dryers particularly user-friendly. The KS-100 PLUS is suitable for frequent product changes due to the quick cleaning function and the program memory locations. The powerful and low-noise motor ensures low wear and a long service life. All in all, the machine is very easy to maintain.
