MACHINES FOR REMOVING MOISTURE FROM VEGETABLES AND FRUITS
Fruit and vegetable post-washing drying lines are designed for the rapid removal of surface moisture from washed fruit and vegetables. The equipment configuration is customised to your process and can be equipped with additional configurations.
≫ Vibratory water removal
≫ Automatic centrifuge
≫ Roller drying (felt drying)
≫ Air drying
Vibratory water removal
The device is used in preparation lines for fruit and vegetables for processing or freezing. It is designed to remove excess water from the product before it is fed to the next processing stage.
The principle of operation is vibration water removal:
The product is fed into the inlet chute of the device, where a slotted sieve is installed. The raw material leaves the excess water and passes towards the discharge side under the effect of vibration. At the final stage there is a fan that additionally blows away the water remaining on the surface of the raw material.
The rotating centrifuge is designed for drying soft salad leaves, processed vegetables and delicate herbs. The automatic centrifuge is installed on a sturdy frame, with the drum positioned at a fixed angle.
The operating principle of the drying centrifuge:
The loading system ensures minimal product movement and carefully places it on the centrifuge surface, which is equipped with small holes for moisture escape. At the end of the process, the centrifuge comes to a smooth stop for unloading. After that, the automatic loading process for the next batch of product is started.
Roller drying (felt drying)
The machine for felt drying of vegetables is designed for drying potatoes and vegetables coming from washing and polishing systems.
The principle of felt drying:
Potatoes and vegetables are dried by using felt rollers that absorb water (water droplets). As the felt rollers rotate, they come into contact with metal rollers that squeeze out the water. The water flows into a special tray. The system can be installed in a fixed or movable version.
The lines are designed to blow moisture out of products such as potatoes, carrots, beetroot, tomatoes (including cherry tomatoes), etc. They are quick and easy to clean, which allows you to change products frequently and consume minimal energy.
The principle of the air drying line:
The product enters the moving belt and is exposed to a powerful air flow. The equipment can be equipped with an air cooling system.
