New version of Kronen's salad and vegetables spin-dryer introduced
The K-series is a widely used model when it comes to Kronen vegetable and salad spin-dryers and it's in full swing around the world. The model has recently been redesigned: The result, KS-100 PLUS, has a new look, and especially the technological aspects were on focus when further developing the machine.
One of the first models of the new vegetable and salad spin-dryer KS-100 PLUS was delivered to Veggie Markt in Vienna, Austria, in May. The Fresh-cut producer processes salads and vegetables for catering and gastronomy companies and deals with organic products only. Many Fresh-cut and convenience food producers work with a machine from the K-series already. It is a core piece in a production plant for cutting and washing fresh products and thus, it is in high demand in Germany and around the world.
Based on new insights a standard machine like this can be optimized further and updated at a state-of-the-art level. That applies in this case as well. KS-100 PLUS is revised compared to the previous model in regards to the design. The robust construction as well as safety and function is based on the requirements of the centrifuge DIN EN 12547 standard and the salad spin-drying DIN EN 13621 standard. Furthermore, the machine has been reviewed and optimized in regards to the technological functionalities:
“Especially easy cleaning and operability as well as optimum, efficient spinning results whilst guaranteeing minimum machine movement, these three features have been focused on when redesigning the K-series,” explains Eric Lefebvre, Technical Director. “Offering innovative, high-quality machinery to our customers, is one main target of Kronen. This includes not only new product development, but also means that standard products from our portfolio are further developed continuously”.
Performance range of KRONEN KS-100 PLUS
1KS 100 PLUS is construed for drying and spinning of Fresh-cut salads, vegetables, herbs, fruit and more. The lift height of 583 mm is specifically low and thus ergonomic. The basket volume is 44 l.
Individual adjustment options for spin speed and spin duration on 99 freely programmable memory locations ensures maximum comfort and optimal adaptation to the product processed. A mode with spinning in both directions during the program is also available. The counter-rotating centrifuge cycle changes the direction of rotation automatically after half a spin period. The product is also loosened up and dried more efficiently. This results in high drying and product quality.
The KS-PLUS spin dryers are particularly easy to clean. There are no dirt traps in the spin area: no screws are used, a floor slope and a drain pipe with a diameter of 100 mm guarantees optimal water drainage. The lid lock is located in the rear mechanism casing. As an alternative to the KS-100 PLUS, the model KS-7 PLUS is available offering seven settings of individually adjustable spin speeds and spin times.
