Watch this fantastic five-line potato processing & peeling line in action. From dirty potatoes to packaged, processed potatoes ready for despatch. A series of metal detectors and slither removers were also added to this processing line to allow optimum condition potatoes to be released for mashing, chipping, dicing or slicing!
With a series of Tong box rotators attached at the beginning of the line, allowing gentle tipping of the crop into the receiver hoppers. The potatoes are then directed into a section where they undergo high pressure, yet gentle washing to effectively remove any debris and soil. They are then sorted and manually inspected, with any rejects removed from the process. From here they are directed into the relevant slicing or chopping areas, before being washed again and sorted ready for boxing up.
