Vegetable peeling and cutting machinery

Vegetable, fruit or vegetable processing line

1

Warehouse

First, we start with the storage of the product to regulate its entry into the production line. For this we can use

2

Washing

We then subject the product to a bath to remove the dirt from its surface in order to preserve our peeler and/or cutter and offer a higher quality product.

3

Peeled

Then we peel the product. The peeler chosen will depend on the production we need. We can even choose to put two peeling machines in parallel.

4

Inspection

Once the product has left the peeling process, it passes through a tape where it is visually located and eliminates any flaws it may have.

5

Cut

After the inspection belt, we move on to lodge the product in the flooded hopper. This hopper is in charge of storing the product in water in order to preserve its properties.

From the flooded hopper we go through an elevator to the cutter where we can choose the size we want for our cuts. They can be bakery, cane and taco.

6

Removal of unsuitable product

Once the product has been cut, it is discharged on the roller calibration belt. This is responsible for disposing of the product that does not meet the size assigned to the cutter. The products with a correct size, continue forward in their process.

7

Starch removal

To eliminate the starch produced during cutting and thus preserve the product better, the best thing is a water bath.

8

Treatment bath

The product now advances to the treatment bath. This, full of water solution and preservative makes the product impregnated and preserved in a high quality state. The product advances through an auger and is removed by a lifting belt. This elevator belt incorporates air curtains that are responsible for eliminating excess water.

9

Centrifugation

In order to completely extract the water from the product but at the same time maintain a moist appearance, we will need to introduce the product into the centrifuge, which through programmable drums will leave the product ready for packaging. Once the centrifugation time is finished, the product is evacuated to an extractor belt that is in charge of transporting the product to the accumulation belt.

Accumulation

The accumulation belt acts as a buffer by regulating the flow between the production line and the packaging machine. Built with teardrop sheet, it prevents the product from sticking to its walls.

11

Packaging

The last and most important process is the packaging. This can be automatic or semi-automatic.

Semi-automatic packaging system

Within the semi-automatic packaging we need a weigher and a bag sealer.

Automatic packaging system

For automatic packaging we will also need a weighing system and a packaging system.

Within the weighing system we can shuffle two options: a weighing group or a multi-head system with teardrop plate (avoids the product sticking to the plate).

In the automatic packaging system we will use a Cobelt 300 automatic packaging machine.

In the following video you can see the process described, and remember that you can consult us whenever you want.
