Equipment Manufacturer Kiremko installs Potato Processing Line in Belgium

Equipment Manufacturer Kiremko installs Potato Processing Line in Belgium

Processing Equipment is already installed prior to the completion of the building.

About a month ago Dutch Potato Processing Equipment manufacturer Kiremko started to build a new state-of-the-art French fries line in Belgium. The line will have a capacity of 16-20 ton/hr of French fries with a fast-food specification.

The line incorporates a number of new developments. The newest steam peeler will be tested at full capacity before it will be released into the market. The line will also be equipped with a PeelGuard® to control the new steam peeler, minimize peel losses and monitor the peel performance.

The line has 6 QuadraFlow hydro cutting systems with the new model VPCK product pumps introduced to the market last October. In the reject flow of the optical sorters a free fall optical sorter, TriPlus®, is installed. This sorter eliminates the good sticks from the bad and increases the total yield of the French fries line.

This customized French Fry line incorporated a range of innovations, in order to maximize processing yield and minimize environmental impact.

For full control of the drying process the drying section will be equipped with Kiremko's new DryGuard, an innovative system for online control of the dryer.

The EcoMiser™ installed after the fryer will reduce the frying oil consumption of the French fries line in a sustainable way. It will also minimize the oil pollution in the freezer and the packaging department.

The whole line is equipped with energy recovery and pollution control. The recovered energy is re-used in the process and lowers the total energy consumption of the line.

By making use of all these innovations the line has become a prestigious customized project.
