USPTO grants a steam peeling patent to Kiremko BV

USPTO grants a steam peeling patent to Kiremko BV

March 08, 2022
Kiremko B.V. announced the issuance to it by the US Patent Office of a patent that covers a system for steam peeling of products having a skin. This unique concept is reflected in the steam peeling vessel of the market-leading Strata Invicta® steam peeler, developed by the globally operating company and its partners Idaho Steel and Reyco.

The patent for invention number 11,185,103 is for a steam vessel that - due to its innovativeness and robustness - gives an optimal peeling result and also lasts much longer than other peeling vessels.

Best peeling results worldwide

Eric van Oorschot, one of the inventors:
"This latest patent makes claims in connection with our technology that allows ultimate robustness in vessel design as well as very impressive yield improvements in steam peeling. This and many other unique technologies have already been patented by Kiremko in most parts of the world. We are very happy that we have now been granted the patent in the USA."

"The Strata Invicta® steam peeler with its patented steam peeling vessel is the world's best steam peeler on the market. Unique deep-sea technology used in vessel manufacturing ensures ultra-even pressure distribution. It is ultimately balanced by self-correcting its positions for high-speed mixing, offering the best peeling results."

"With up to 25% shorter peeling time than any other steam peeler, the Strata Invicta® not only provides the best peeling result, the peeler also uses a lot less steam."
Peel Guard® for further optimization

To optimize the efficiency of the STRATA Invicta® steam peeler Kiremko designed the Kiremko PeelGuard®. The PeelGuard® is an optical in-line inspection, equipped with a weight belt, so the exact peel result can be calculated accurately. The system detects the thickness of the removed skin and cooking ring, in order to continuously optimize the steam peeler settings.

This way, the PeelGuard® guarantees a constantly optimized peeling yield and up-to-date information with respect to the quality of raw material used. This information can be made available to the customer’s MES and/or ERP systems. A PeelGuard® Connect system is also available, connecting the Kiremko Strata Invicta® steam peeler to an Insort Sherlock® optical sorter, for the same functionality.

30 Strata Invicta® steam peelers in 30 months

Last year, Kiremko announced that they had sold over 30 Strata Invicta® steam peelers in 30 months, and the counter is still running. Customers experience the benefits of the patented technology of Kiremko and its partners Idaho Steel and Reyco on a daily basis.
