Tong Engineering, the UK’s leading designer and manufacturer of handling and sorting equipment for the vegetable industry, has introduced a new generation crop polishing system, as part of its 2012 range of farm and pack house machinery.
Designed with the latest technological advances in mind, the TPS-Pro Vegetable Polisher features an electric direct drive inside every shaft, self contained stainless steel motors within their own oil baths, and waterproof sealed bearings. These key features virtually remove the need for equipment maintenance or lubrication, providing exceptional labour efficiency.
The polisher is fitted with a unique drive system with gold-plated contact points for optimum longevity and efficiency. Accordingly, internally sealed drum motors and unique design eliminates rust or corrosion within the system, as well as facilitating fast and easy brush exchange.
In addition, Tong’s new polisher has been developed with the highest levels of flexibility in mind and as such, can be used on a variety of crop from potatoes and carrots to parsnips and beetroot.
Manufactured in a 14 brush model featuring a 3m long x 800mm barrel, as well as an 18 brush model featuring a 3m long x 1050mm barrel, the TPS-Pro polisher provides outputs of between 15-30 tonnes per hour and can be integrated into static lines, or specified as a stand alone model.
“With buyers and contractors increasingly demanding a higher grade of washed and polished crop to meet customer requirements for convenient, ready-to-cook fresh food products, we are introducing a new polisher which is specifically designed to improve appearance and ensure a quality finish,” said Charles Tong, MD at Tong Engineering.
“Our new polisher, the TPS-Pro Vegetable Polisher, features a completely new design approach, providing our most effective and efficient independent polishing system ever. The unique drive system, combined with our unique waterproof seal ensures state-of-the-art build quality, which comes with a 2 year warranty.”
