Kronen automated capsicum-processing line

Tuesday, 24 June, 2014 | Supplied by: Reactive Engineering Pty Ltd

Kronen has developed an automated capsicum-processing line, consisting of two GEWA 5050V Plus capsicum-washing machines with integrated transport systems.

Up to 7 tonnes/h of raw product can be processed, yielding approximately 5 - 5.5 tonnes of good product.

The machines have been designed for washing and sorting sliced capsicum (completely cut with core and kernels). One of the features is an automatic separation method allowing either diced or sliced product to be processed.

By means of a water-streaming system, the waste and good product are separated. Light parts (core and pith) drift on the surface of the water and are discharged by a link conveyer. Heavy parts (kernels) fall to the bottom and are discharged through the sand trap funnel. Good product is discharged by the vibration outfeed for further processing.

The processing line consists of a mobile infeed conveying system (30°) linked with a horizontal shuttle conveyor which allows either one or both machines to be fed. The sand-trap funnel for seeds enables thorough washing of even very soiled products. The line also contains a lateral fines removal drum, exchangable vibration sieves with various perforations (5.8 and 15 mm) and integrated outfeed belts for good products as well as waste. A central switch box can control both machines separately and all infeed and outfeed belts can be connected individually
