NL: Revolutionary new roller peeler

It has been a while, since real exciting developments were done in the peeling scene. Through the years the peeling of potatoes, fruit and vegetables, has developed itself from batch peelers, to u-bed peelers to drum roller peelers. Changes and progress that were made through a period decennia. Now in 2011, something new is happening again and we are very proud to announce it.

Marcelissen, market leader on the fresh market in Europe and specialized in potatoes (and carrots) has built a new drum roller peeler that can be called revolutionary. This new roller peeler (first on the market) has a capacity that is 40% higher than the roller peeler as these were up till now. Furthermore - and definitely not less important - the machine has a minimum of wearable parts what reduces maintenance to the lowest level ever. This means not only a raise in the profit/yield, but also a drastic reduction on the costs for the user of the machine.

The year 2010 has been used for development and testing. Right now the machine is successfully finalized and the first two machines are produced for our – a bit impatient – customers.

We will raise a corner of the veil to explain what new features our machine has:

      A very easy clicking system to change the rollers in a minute.

Can be done by 1 person without any assistance.

     Cleaning hatches fully integrated in the machine.

     No loss of space and/or capacity because of unpractical cleaning constructions.
     The machine is completely chain wheel driven what makes v-belts history.
     Changeable drum in case of changing capacities.

The drum can ben changed and/or adapted to a new capacity without too much trouble.

When it comes to the price, we have been able to keep in on the same level. Even thought this new machine is loaded with technical novelties and high quality improvements, we managed to keep our price on the same level as the old one.

For an official presentation, we can already tell you that the machine will be exposed on the Fruit Logistica in 2012. If you would like to experience the machine before, please feel free to contact us or visit
