Continuous peeler for root products
Finis has developed several systems, each with their own unique characteristics, for the processing industry. Improving quality and extending the shelf-life of peeled products can be achieved with our systems or complete lines.
The Blade 2.1 has up to 36 rotating discs that carefully peel the product. Due to the machine design, the product’s cell structure is kept intact, resulting in an end product with a longer shelf life and a hand peeled look. Stainless steel motors with frequency converters individually drive the peeling discs. The peeling time can be adjusted by changing the speed of the machine.
The Continuous peeler includes a hygienic and safe alternative of abrasive peeling. It does not leave carborundum in your end product. The discs can be used clockwise and counter-clockwise for both the upper and lower side of the disc. As a result they can be used 4 times before sharpening, making the maintenance costs fairly reasonable. 5 different types of discs, each with a different size of hole, create a very flexible but most of all economical solution compared to the old fashion carborundum.
The specially developed knife discs create a perfect end product with a ‘hand peeled’ look and increased shelf-life. The knives a high durability due to the premium stainless steel used. Thanks to the simplicity of the system, the machine can easily be adapted towards a knife peeler, abrasive peeler or even a combination of best of both worlds as a combination peeler.
To ensure a uniform end product, a special infeed with an elevator weighs the amount of product. For convenience, the Continuous peeler will automatically signal the belt when to run or stop. The machine will peel continuously, repeat batches of for instance 8 kg.
Our specially designed low maintenance motors are constructed from stainless steel and do not use bearings, therefore easy accessible for both cleaning and maintenance operations. The speed of each separate motor can be adjusted, resulting in an improved yield. The speed of the belt and the amount of water usage are adjustable just by a few simple clicks on the multi-language touch screen control display.
The Continuous peeler has an automatic cleaning program that uses 75% less water than conventional peeling methods. The water usage can be automatically adjusted by using the touch screen control display.
The clean product is transported through the peeler, whilst the waste drops down to the integrated waste auger. There is an option to connect the waste auger to a pump, enabling the waste to be transported in an easy and very clean way.
