Knife peeler UP

The Sormac UP-8000 universal knife peeler is designed for peeling long products such as carrots, radish and cucumbers. The product is placed on the V-conveyor and moved onto the first set of transport rollers. No orientation of the product is needed unless the product is extremely tapered.

The machine is equipped with transport rollers which convey the product horizontally through the machine. The product passes 8 peeling stations which completely peel the product.

The knife stations and the transport rollers are equipped with a quick-release system, which allows easy removal for replacement or cleaning.

The peeling waste drops into bins on the underside of the machine.
