Tummers Newest Peeler Offers Lowest Cost of Ownership
Tummers Food Processing Solutions have recently unveiled their latest development in the market, a steam peeler, with a total cost of ownership that is lower than other peelers available, according to the company. The performance of the new machine is comparable with that of other peelers on the market, but at lower operational costs and a lower steam consumption. In addition, the peeler is safer to clean, operate and maintain.
The Tummers Steam Peeler (TSP) is the first peeler Tummers have constructed in-house. Previously, the Dutch equipment manufacturer bought its steam peelers from external sources, but after many customer requests for an affordable and reliable peeling solution, the company decided to expand its portfolio by releasing its own peeler.
During development, Tummers paid close attention to the safety features of the new TSP. “We introduced several special features to allow for safe handling and maintenance”, Sales Manager Edwin Langbroek explains. “Safety features allow mechanics to have a safe access during maintenance. In addition, we covered all pipes through which steam passes, so that operators and technicians cannot injure themselves. Machine builders often put these kinds of measures to the customer, but we see it as our responsibility to deliver not only a reliable, but also safe product.”
The design of Tummers’ first steam peeler is based on the company’s many years of expertise in the field of steam peeling. Stainless steel is used to ensure extended maintenance intervals, and the peeler’s steam usage is 20% lower than comparable peelers available. The high rotational speed and high-speed exhaust system offer minimal peel losses, in line with the industry standard.
The Tummers Steam Peeler is especially designed to fit any peeling line. Along with a smaller footprint, the TSP’ height is lower than the height of comparable peelers and because it is available in right and left-handed configurations, fitting the peeler in a new or existing processing line will not present a challenge.
With the release of the TSP, Tummers can supply customers with three different peeler models. Placing the peeler in-line with Tummers’ successful ZicZac Brusher, the company can provide its customers with a state-of-the-art peeling line in various capacities.
