Vegetable peeling and cutting machinery
Vegetable, fruit or vegetable processing line
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
