Onion peelers

The climate is changing, thus are the consequences for the crops in the field. Especially onions are affected by the changing climate and have shown considerable differences in size and quality these last few years. Batches of smaller onions are overflowing the market; something which the onion processing industry has to take into account.

Sormac has therefore further improved their USM-100 onion peelers. The new USM-S100 onion peelers have already proven their worth since their introduction in Palm Springs, USA.

Energy saving onion peelers

The power capacity of these onion peelers has been lowered from 4,1 kW to 2,7 kW in comparison to its predecessor onion peelers. Furthermore, the famed Sormac air saving technique has been further improved for the onion peelers. When the pockets of the onion peelers don’t hold onions, the onion peeling machines recognize this. The air surge that blows away the peelings will be temporarily interrupted. That way not only air compressor energy is being saved, but the onion peelers’ sound pollution is being reduced, as well.

Easy maintenance

Because onion juices are aggressive and sticky, onion peelers need intensive maintenance. The USM-S100 onion peelers have been built with fewer parts, which make the onion peelers more accessible and quick and simple to clean.

Satisfied customers all over the world!

`The onion peeling line we have chosen is renowned for its low noise levels, not more than 83dB(A), its ease of operation and, of course, its perfect peeling quality. The onion peelers are very environmentally and energy friendly, the latter adding up to substantial cost savings. This is especially due to the low compressed air usage (1.2 Nm³/min). In addition, it is worth mentioning that the machines are fast and easy to maintain and clean.”

Bert Haffmans is very pleased with the cooperation with so many customers all over the world: “At Sormac, too, we are only satisfied with the best result and with satisfied customers. For this reason, we continue to innovate permanently to maintain this high level. By updating the onion peelers continuously and making them operate in an increasingly modern, sustainable and economical way, product safety, quality and care for the environment can be safeguarded. This enables us, but certainly also our customers,  to maintain our advantage over the competition.”

An onion peeling line consists of e.g. an infeed reception hopper, a transport belt, USM-S100 onion peeler, inspection table type RLT/L6-200, automatic weighing machine type AFW/40 and a waste transport belt. This silent peeling line enables customers to supply perfect fresh onion products.
