for spinning and drying of lettuce, vegetables, fruits and more
The K650 drying system is the ideal system for drying a wide variety
of lettuce and vegetable products in a continuous treatment process.
The K650 drying system is perfectly suited for drying sliced fruit,
vegetables, lettuce, mushrooms and herbs in the industrial
Depending on consistency, shape and size of the product and the desired
degree of drying, spinning times and spinning speeds can be adjusted via
a touch screen and saved in the programs. Depending on the cycle time
and rotational speed, some parameters are automated, e.g. speed of the
buffer conveyor and of the outfeed conveyor. Thus, the program is clearly
organised and easy to operate.
With an optional volume control, the product feed quantity can be
This influences the capacity and the drying effect.
In addition, without product the machine switches to energy saving mode
After the washing process, the product is collected on a buffer
conveyor depending on the spinning time. The spinning speed and
spinning duration can be adapted depending on the product and
quantity. This enables an effective, gentle and short drying cycle.
At the end of the drying cycle the rotational speed is reduced and
through one-time blow-off, the product is gently further routed out
of the centrifuge and onto an outfeed conveyor.
The outfeed conveyor is cycled in such a manner that a product flow
that is as uniform as possible occurs for the downstream processes
(including weighing / packing).
The K650 drying system is an ideal supplement to the KRONEN GEWA
washing machines and it can be integrated in all other systems that
require a continuous, user-friendly drying process operated with a
minimum number of personnel.
Easy operation via touch screen
In the movable control cabinet there is a touch
panel in which the appropriate programs can be quite easily entered,
modified and saved.
The important parameters include the spinning speed, the spinning
duration, and an optionally adjustable right-hand / left-hand rotation
mode for large-leaf products.
Hygiene and cleaning
The K650 is manufactured completely of AISI 304 stainless steel
or FDA-conformant plastics (all surfaces that come into contact
For optimal cleaning and hygiene the seal can be mounted and
Also for the feed conveyor and buffer conveyor, as well as for the outfeed
conveyor the conveyor belts can be quickly and easily taken off
through a rapid de-tensioning system.
The robust machine has been designed in accordance with the latest
hygienic regulations and thus it can be cleaned easily and quickly.
Flexible set-up variants
The supply of the product can occur from two sides and the outfeed
can occur in 5 different directions.
Thus, 8 different set-up variants are possible that ensure the greatest
possible flexibility depending on the customer requirement.
