TOMRA ships world's largest steam peeler
The new Eco steam peeler stands more than eight metres tall, and has the capability to peel 650kg of potatoes in less than seven seconds.
The processing capacity of the steam peeler is more than 65,000kg (143,300lbs) of potatoes per hour or a daily rate of 1,560,000kg (3,439,200lbs).
Eamonn Cullen, market unit manager peeling at TOMRA Sorting Food: “When you consider this pressure vessel will peel almost 3,000 individual potatoes in less than seven seconds, these results demonstrate the scale of the achievement.”
Steam peeling has for a long time been the most efficient method of removing skin from the surface of vegetables. The new Eco steam peeler is not only the fastest steam peeler; it is also the most efficient in the industry according to TOMRA using 28 percent less steam than other peelers of its type.
Eamonn continues: “We were the first to introduce high pressure steam peeling to the vegetable processing industry and we have continued to invent in technologies to improve the steam peeling performance. This latest steam peeler enables processors to reduce the energy consumed in the process to levels not seen in the industry before.
