"Slot" Batch Automatic Carborundum Peeling
"slot" batch automatic carborundum peeling
machines "30 K-OA-Automatic" and "60
K-OA-Automatic" have the appearance of conventional
automatic batch peelers.
peeling segment and peeling discs of the automatic machines
were, however, designed by our firm in a way that the
machines can work without waste water.
peeling tools are provided with "elongated holes (slots)"
through which the peel waste can get out. The produced peel
pulp can, for instance, drop into a container or be pumped,
by means of a pump, to any place you like.
machines are equipped with a switch cabinet over which you
can control the following functions: 1. running time of the
conveyor belt for the feed-in of raw material,
necessary movements on the machines are carried out
pneumatically. A compressor must be available.
machines serve, above all, for peeling potatoes. On the
bigger model "60 K-OA-Automatic" you can, however,
peel celeriac, too. Less suitable they are for the peeling
of longish fruit, as for example carrots, for the peeling of
which you should use the DORNOW roller peeling machines
working without water.
machines can work without water/waste water. - As there are
still abraded particles sticking to the peeled fruit, after
the peeling process, the peeled material normally drops,
after leaving the peeling machine(s), into a storage bin
filled with water.
immersion of the fruit into the water the abraded particles
are washed away. Such storage bins are normally to be found
in any peeling line. They serve at the same time as dosing
devices for the connected inspection table etc.
required, it is possible to produce atomized water in the
machines by means of an atomizer nozzle. Water supply and
atomizer nozzle(s) are among the standard equipment of all
machines. By the addition of small quantities of water via
atomizer nozzle(s) waste water is not necessarily produced.
However, it makes the peel mash produced as "waste"
less viscous which is advantageous if, for instance, this
peel mash is to be removed through chutes in the floor. -
Besides there are considerably less abraded particles
sticking on the fruit after peeling.
special equipment a magnetic valve can be fit in the water
supply. This valve opens the water supply for some seconds,
by means of one or two additional water nozzle(s) (with
large opening), at the end of every peeling cycle (adjustable
via timer in the switch cabinet). Thus, the peeled potatoes
are thoroughly rinsed at the end of every peeling cycle.
Even by this addition of water waste water is not
necessarily produced. The rinsing water can normally be
removed with the peel mash (suitable for the production of

appears to be advisable to consult an expert before taking a
definite decision as to which type of peeling machine is to
be used for which application.
