Potato Processing

Complete production/processing lines for fresh potatoes and French fries with accessories.

 

Product Description

These machines are equipped as standard with extremely flexible adjustments. This is necessary for rapid processing of the wide variety of base materials.
The machines are also extra sturdy to reduce wear and therefore downtime as much as possible, also in the longer term.

De-stoning machines

fmtpotato

The screw de-stoner can be used in conjunction with all root crops. The integration of this system into a processing line dramatically reduces the potential for extreme wear and tear to associated equipment further along the installation. The screw de-stoner is constructed with a reception hopper with a vertical transport screw. The screw is driven by a reduction gearbox.

The circular water filled hopper receives the product to be de-stoned and in combination with the rotational action of the vertical screw auger draws the water and crop gently up the tube supported by the regular closed screw. The rotational action raises the product allowing the water to gravitate down the side of the auger. Heavy particles with negative buoyancy fall back into the base of the circular hopper where they can be collected for removal through an inspection door. Clean product (without stones) are transported out off the upper side of the transport screw.  In the bottom there is a sieve which separates the stones and earth. This machine is simple and effective, gives no damage to the product, is extremely durable, hard wearing and reliable and easily to clean.

The capacity of the machine depends on the size of the product, and can be up to 8 tons/hour.

 

 

Drum washing machines

fmtpotato

The drum washing machine of FMT is used to wash potatoes and other root products.

The machine consists of a rod drum and
frame. By choosing a certain distance
between the rods, the maximum size
of the impurities to be separated is
determined.

The cleaning operation is based on a
combination of water and mutual rubbing
together of products. In order to optimize
the rubbing effect, the quantity of product
can be regulated by a sliding plate at the discharge side of the drum. By hand or automatically. Cleaning with water is achieved by means of sprays and/or water bath.

Both possibilities are freely adjustable. In this way you can choose the optimal cleaning method for each kind of contamination, without increasing water consumption.

Features:

  • · various rod spacings possible
  • · driven by bands or wheels
  • · with or without product height adjustment
  • · with or without water level adjustment
  • · with or without dirt reception hopper

FMT delivers tailor-made machines. Therefore capacity and dimensions will depend on your product and specific requirements. All our machines are constructed of stainless steel wherever possible and comply with the stringent, international standards in the field of safety and hygiene.

 

 

 

 

Brush washer

fmtpotato

The brush washer is suitable for the continuous brush washing of root products such as potatoes, carrots, kohlrabi, red beets, celeriac etc. after steampeeling to wash of the skin. The machine is executed with 8-12 brush rollers and a transport auger which moves the product to be peeled equally through the machine.

The number of rollers and the kind of bruches determines the capacity of the machine.

The peeling rollers are mounted side by side; the center two peeling rollers are located at the lowest position the other rollers are mounted in gradual increments following the shape around the transporting auger. The peeling rollers are provided with a quick release locator for simple
de-mounting, and all rollers are driven by a
timing pulley with different speeds, ensuring
an optimum washing result and a high capacity.

A control panel can be supplied, which controls the number of revolutions of the peeling rollers and the transport auger can be adjusted (independent of each other). The desired washing result can be adapted optimally to every type of product.

 

 Abrasive peelers

fmtpotato

The roller peeler is suitable for the continuous peeling of root products such as potatoes, carrots, kohlrabi, red beets, celariac etc. Continuous roller peeler with abrasive covers in which the skin of the potato is removed mechanically. Potatoes supply by a conveyor. The rollers are constructed in a drum in which a screw transport the product to the discharge opening. The drum construction has the advantage that the product is running with a low speed. The waste can be discharged underneath the machine with our without water. The drives of the drum, rollers and screw are variable by frequency control converters.

The abrasive surface of the machine can peel off ca.840 kg./hour. Peeling with a waste of ca. 25% gives an input of 3360 kg./hour if the grain on the rollers is in a good condition. All depending on the skin and quality of the peeled product.
The FSKR-range is easy to clean and to maintenance. On both side you can open the covers for cleaning and maintenance. The whole machine in accordance with CE regulations

A control panel can be supplied, which controls the number of revolutions of the peeling rollers and the transport auger can be adjusted (independent of each other). The desired peeling result can be adapted optimally to every type of product.

The FMT roller inspection table, type IRT, consists of a transport system with transport rollers provided with a grip profile. The transport rollers are fitted to heavy duty plastic drive chains, which, when drive, a rotating movement directs to the rollers.

The product is then rotated so that visual inspection can take place over the entire product on the table. The transport rollers are easy to change. The roller inspection table can be placed after a processing machine. The processed product can be delivered onto the roller inspection table where it is inspected by quality control inspection people. The roller inspection tables can be supplied in several of lengths, from 2.000 to 5.000 mm and in several widths.

The features of the roller inspection tables are:
• Because of the turning product simple and fast inspection all over the product.
• Easy to change rollers
• Hygienic design ( easy to clean and disinfect)
• Extremely durable, hard-wearing and reliable. Products:
• The roller inspection table IRT is used for several kind of root crop products like
potatoes, carrots, celariac, red beets etc. etc.

Transport screws

fmtpotato

By means of the transport screw of FMT a large variety of products can be transported.

Products are fed into the hopper of the transport screw
by hand or automatically. The installation consists of a
body and a screw shaft with a fully welded screw. If
desired, the body can be provided with a double wall to
enable the product to be heated.

Depending on the product to be transported, the
transport screw can be installed at various angles.

Possible executions:

  • · omega, U-shaped or closed body
  • · open or closed screw
  • · protected by e.g. interlocked hinged
    hatches or bar grid
  • · with motor reductor or motor variator

FMT delivers tailor-made machines. Therefore capacity and dimensions
will depend on your product and specific requirements. All our machines
are constructed of stainless steel wherever possible and comply with the
stringent, international standards in the field of safety and hygiene.
