After cutting fresh fries, cubes or slices, there are inevitably short and thin pieces in the product stream. After all, potatoes are not squared or rectangular. In order to realise a high quality end product, these short and narrow pieces have to be sorted out, we do this by means of our Sliver Removers.
This machine is specially constructed to separate too small product particles and/or waste from sliced and whole products. The main advantage of this sorter is that the roll opening during the production process can be easily, quickly and precisely adjusted from 3 to 23 mm or 4 to 24 mm.
The new generation Sliver Removers are very easy to maintain, the rollers can be adjusted during the production process and no water is needed for cooling and lubricating the bearings. When processing potato products, there is always the possibility to add a spray tube with which the released starch can be rinsed away.
All rollers have the same rotation direction and are equipped with spirals. This creates a good product distribution, which is very important in achieving a good sorting quality. The product to be sorted moves across the rollers with the direction of rotation of the rollers, whereby breakage is excluded.
The waste can be disposed of underneath the machine. A spray tube is mounted above the rollers for the removal of any sticking parts.
The roll opening of Sliver Removers can be adjusted up to a maximum opening of 20 mm between the rollers. Furthermore, nowadays we have a split-sizer where on one machine two halves can be adjusted separately, this gives 3 sorting possibilities.
The plastic rollers are available in cream and blue and always come with an FDA certificate. Optionally, the Sliver Removers can also be equipped with stainless steel rollers.
Capacity: up to 20.000 Kg/hour
