Tolsma-Grisnich has recently commissioned new grading machines at Golden-Geest-Kartoffeln Erzeugergesellschaft mbH in Germany.

The company specialises in growing, storing and processing quality potatoes for the processing industry.

Hans-Christian Gerdesmeijer:

“Our original grading machine needed to be replaced. We wanted to operate an installation with increased capacity.”

“Whereas we could previously process a maximum of 35 tons/h, we can now handle up to 47 tons/h with a new grading machine.”

“We consequently benefit from an enhanced reserve in terms of capacity. The installation’s life cycle was a major decision-making factor.”
In addition to capacity and machine life, another very special reason led Golden Geest to opt for Tolsma-Grisnich. Indeed, Golden Geest imposed that the new installation be installed within 24 hours, including dismantling of the former grading machine.

Hans-Christian Gerdesmeijer:

“To do so, Tolsma-Grisnich provided us with excellent advice, as well a technically comprehensive plan.”

“This was the main reason we chose to work with them. In addition, the system had to be connected to our data processing system within the same time frame, which requires in-depth expertise on this technology.”
Excellent organisation

Tolsma-Grisnich’s technical team finally managed the operation within 14 hours, including a test run of the installation. “It was all perfectly organised”, says Hans-Christian with a wide smile.

Now that the installation is up and running, Golden Geest enjoys the benefits it brings every day. All major functions are operated by means of an intelligent control.

The grading system allows total variable adjustment and the grading decks are fitted with a non-eccentric drive. Furthermore, product flow-through is totally free from obstacles.

The grading machine’s required long life cycle is guaranteed, among other features, by the integral use of stainless steel materials.

The grading sieves and grading deck are all made of stainless steel, as are the sieve cleaner, doors and guard panels.

In addition, the sieve cleaner comes in a galvanised version. The installation frame also features a galvanised layer. The grader drive is protected from getting wet during cleaning.
