Once the harvest is clean and free of unwanted inclusions, the product is ready for a mechanized peeling.

Peeling potatoes, carrots and similar root products before processing.

Peeling can be done mechanized in two ways:
1. Using abrasive material to remove the skin 2. Using small blades to remove the skin

The abrasive peelers are more economical, but the peelers that use blades have a neater result.

Batch peelers types: SKB (uses abrasive material) and SMB (uses small blades)

SKB (uses abrasive material) and SMB (uses small blades)

Drum peeler: SKB (uses abrasive material)in action.

We have two types of batch peelers: Type SKB, which uses abrasive material. Type SMB, which uses small blades. Both machines are identical with the exception of the inside of the drum and the bottom disc.

The movie shows a type SKB (abrasive) batch peeler functioning. As it is a batch peeler, the output is not continuous. Often 2 batch peelers of this type are used in parallel which are fed with a fully automated weighing hopper.

If the, to be peeled, product is well de-stoned and cleaned the abrasive material or blades will do their job for months on end.

Specifications of the batch peelers types: SKB (uses abrasive material) and SMB (uses small blades):

  • Capacity: 500, 750, 1.000 or 2.000 Kg / hour
  • Batch size: 15, 25, 40, 50 kg / batch
  • Diameter drum: 500, 600, 800 or 850 mm
  • Diameter bottom disc: 500, 590, 785 or 835 mm
  • Maximum size product: depends on Auger diameter
  • Height product exit: 2.900 mm
  • Electrical consumption: 1,5, 2,2, 3,0, 4,0 Kw, 220/400V 50/60Hz
  • Water consumption: 1,0 m3/hour. Water is recyclable!

Drum peelers type SMT, using blades, peel continuously.

Inide a drum peeler type SMT, uses small blades

One beam with blades removed from the drum.

The drum peeler type SMT uses blades. These blades are mounted onto stainless steel beams. The beams form the drum.

The big question:

How complicated is it to exchange the blades?

Not complicated at all. The drum is formed by beams where the blades are mounted. Each beam can be taken out loosening two bolts at each end and can be replaced immediately with a reserve beam. Each small blade is bolted with two small screws into place on the beam.

The drum peeler has an auger within the drum and opening or closing the out-let the capacity or the product-flow can be regulated very precisely. The result: more or less peeling, depending what the product demands.

If the product is well de-stoned and cleaned the blades will do their job for months on end.

Specifications of the drum peeler type SMT (uses blades):

  • Capacity: 1.500 or 2.500 kg / hour
  • Product feed: continuous
  • Number of blades: 384 or 576
  • Electrical consumption: 3,75 or 4.75 Kw, 220/400V 50/60Hz
  • Water consumption: 0 to 2,5 m3/hour. Water is recyclable!

The roller peelers type SKRT using rollers with abrasive material, peel continuously.

Roller peeler type SKRT

Drumpeeler type SMT, using small blades) in action.

The SKRT is a roller peeler with abrasive material on the rollers. The rollers are mounted in such a way that they form an U-bed. The rollers at the left side of the center turn to the left and the rollers at the right side of the center turn to the right. In this way the product is always equally spread over the rollers.

The product is moved by an auger over the U-bed and by opening or closing the out-let, the capacity or the product-flow can be regulated very precisely. The result: more or less peeling, depending what the product demands.
If the, to be peeled, product is well de-stoned and cleaned the abrasive material will do it' job for months on end.

Specifications of the roller peelers type SKRT:

  • Capacity: 2.000, 3.000, 5.000 or 7.000 Kg / hour
  • Product feed: continuous
  • Drum length and # Rollers: 2.000 mm (6 R.) 3.000 mm (8 R.), 3.000 mm (10 R.) or 3.000 mm (12 R.)
  • Electrical consumption: 7.15, 9.35, 11.55 or 14 Kw, 220/400V 50/60Hz
  • Water consumption: 0 to 2,5 m3/hour. Water is recyclable!

Peeling onions is a technological challenge.

Peeling onions is complicated, because of the shape of the onions and their internal structure.

That is the reason an onion peeler requires a significant investment. Despite this investment these machines are very profitable. To check that, you only need to visit a grocery store and compare prices for a kilo of fresh onions and a kilo of peeled and chopped onions in plastic bags under vacuum.

That's the secret of these ingenious machines, they generate very high returns on investment.

Specifications Onion Peeler:

  • Capacity: upto 6.600 onions / hour
  • Product feed: continuous plus a helping hand for alignment.
  • Product size: between 45 and 115 mm or 18 and 45 mm, depending on the model
  • Electrical consumption: 5 Kw, 220/400V 50/60Hz
  • Water consumption: 0 m3/hour.

Again we have a big variety of different machines that will do the job efficiently and many different capacities

Peeling can be done in batches or continuously.
There are 2 basic ways to peel: Using blades or using a abrasive material. This abrasive material most commonly used is carborundum at different grades, from very fine for polishing to rough for aggressive peeling.

And of course our dear onion needs a very specialized piece of equipment, because of its form and internal structure. But peeling onions is very profitable, despite the high investment.
