Stepflow PVW

The Sormac automatic stepflow system type PVW meets the need to singulate carrots or other long-shaped vegetables like e.g. salad cucumbers, courgettes etc. The Sormac knife peeler type KP-60/HS or the carrot topper/piece cutter type WOS-1A are ideal machines to place behind the stepflow system.

The machine operates according to the known shuffle principle. Two up and down moving, step-shaped plates lift the carrots out off the infeed hopper. Next to this, the carrots fall in a V-belt.

The special infeed hopper takes care of an extra high filling degree.

The electrical components are in a handy, swivel-mounted control panel. Stepflow and V-belt are controlled by 2 coupled frequency converters so that the speed of both always is in a good relation. To achieve optimal singulation, it may be necessary to install a second slightly faster V-belt.

The stepflow system type PVW is suitable for singulating long-shaped root vegetables, especially carrots, salad cucumbers and courgettes. The product needs to be rather straight and without leaves. The diameter is between 25 and 65 mm (0,98”- 2,56”).

The capacity of the stepflow is between 3.000 and 8.000 pieces/hour dependent on product length.
