By means of a singulating chain the onions are transported from the infeed hopper and positioned onto the flights of the transport chain. The operator places the onions in the right horizontal position. The rotating knives top, tail and cutting arms make a horizontal cut around the onions.
At the end of the conveying section the onions are picked up with a double holding-arm system with rotating holders.
For adapting the machine to different onion diameters several adjustments are provided. These can mostly be made from outside, even during operation, by means of a hand wheel.
The Sormac air saving technique which is used in the USM-S100, takes care of low energy consumption in combination with a higher peeling quality.
The USM-S100 can peel onions with a diameter of 55 – 120 mm (2,2” – 4,7”). For smaller and larger diameters adjusted executions can be supplied (see options).
Depending on diameter, shape and quality the USM-S100 onion peeler can handle up to 4.800 – 6.000 onions per hour, positioned by one person.
Energy and air saving technology
Up to 40% lower energy and air consumption levels than similar machines.
Ergonomic design at one level
The machine was designed to be on one level so as to make working with, and adjusting, the machine as easy as possible for operators.
Low sound pressure level
During production < 83 dB(A).
Digital control panel (optional)
The digital control panel enables the machine speed to be set and also features an onion counter.
