The CRC200 chicory root cutter from KRONEN has been specifically developed for the automated processing of chicory. The CRC200 ensures efficient and clean removal of the root by specific adaptations to the shape of the chicory, so that in the same step the root can be discharged from the machine and the chicory can be packed directly.
Mode of operation
The chicory is manually inserted into infeed chain, after which it is automatically transported on to the subsequent cutting process in the optimum position. The root drops directly into the waste chute and the chicory is carried out of the machine on the discharge conveyor.
The speed of the product infeed is adjustable and allows adaptation to different production requirements. The CRC200 processes chicory with a maximum good product length of 200 mm.
Specialized and user-friendly
With a capacity of up to 80 pieces per minute, the CRC200 ensures efficient processing of chicory with optimal cutting quality. The design of the slicer is also designed for ergonomic and safe operation and allows thorough and quick cleaning, as the interior is accessible through a hood.
The illustration shows a CRC200 that has been adapted for integration into a customer's existing production line by means of a raised design and specific product discharge. This machine has been operating successfully for several months and has improved processing capacity as well as occupational safety in the customer's production.
Chicory is becoming increasingly popular in France, Belgium, Germany and several other European countries as a healthy vegetable and can be processed all year round due to its storability.
