A challenging project
By means of buffer conveyors, 3 different potato sizes are collected separately, which have to be halved later. These eventually end up on a three-track conveyor belt, each size its own track, before they reach the 6-track halving machine. This 6-track halving machine is built in such a way, that the potatoes are cut in different ways per two lanes.
In addition, one exit is reserved for the further processing of baby potatoes, one exit for the further processing of the oversize and one exit for the product that doesn’t meet the quality standard, which is pulverised in a shredder.
The overflow is used for repeel potatoes which are returned to the knife peeler by means of a long transport screw.
As previously stated, it was a challenging project that we look back on with great pleasure. We would like to congratulate the Funk family and wish them good luck with their brand new Marcelissen production line.
