In the production process of potatoes, beets, carrots and other tuberous vegetables, after peeling and cutting you have to deal with slivers.
Slivers are short, unsuitable pieces of fruit and vegetables. These slivers have to be sorted out of the production flow, because they influence the quality of the end product.
Use the Marcelissen Sliver Remover to remove all slivers from your end product.
The Sliver Remover with its unique sorting qualities has been used since 1979 by industry leaders in potato and chip processing, such as Aviko, Farm Frites, Cavendish, Simplot, Agristo and Cela Vita.
The Sliver Remover is also suitable for sorting other types of fresh fruit and vegetables, such as pineapples, peaches, carrots, tomatoes, mangos and beets. The production process of frozen fruit and vegetable products and nuts, such as cashew and pistachio, can also be optimised with our Sliver Remover.
The Sliver Remover is increasingly being used as an infeed for the Band Optical Sorter of our partners and can be added to all lines and shapes of optical sorters.
Products that are too small or unsuitable (depending on the size) are removed by the Sliver Remover earlier in the production process, so that the Optical Sorter is not unnecessarily soiled. The Sliver Remover also feeds the product proportionally across the width of the Band Optical Sorter belt and does not end up on the grading machine in batches. This improves the result of the Band Optical Sorter.
