TOMRA Sorting Food has delivered the world’s highest capacity steam peeler, more than eight meters tall, with a capability to peel 650kg of potatoes in less than seven seconds.

The new Eco steam peeler will be used by a leading potato processing company.

The processing capacity of the steam peeler is more than 65,000kg (143,300lbs) of potatoes per hour or a daily rate of 1,560,000kg (3,439,200lbs).

Eamonn Cullen, market unit manager peeling at TOMRA Sorting Food: “When you consider this pressure vessel will peel almost 3,000 individual potatoes in less than seven seconds, these results demonstrate the scale of the achievement.”

The new Eco steam peeler uses 28% less steam than other peelers of its type and enables processors to reduce the energy consumed in the process.
