The new Vortex-line from KRONEN has been developed for final treatment stage for vegetables (like e.g. various leaf salads, root products, etc.) but also fruit like apples and grapes achieving germ reduction and prolongation of shelf life and, consequently, increase of quality of products.
The product enters gently into a pipe system without passing through a pump. Chemicals and sanitizing products can be added at different stages of the product transportation through the machine. At the discharge, the product is rinsed with fresh water through special nozzles placed on top of the exit conveyor belt. Flexible contact and dwell time of the produce is adjustable from 1 to 3 minutes. The modular and space-saving tubular system can easily be integrated into existing salad processing lines, various installation layouts for customer specific conditions are possible. For mechanical cleaning the pipelines can be disassembled easily and quickly by means of screw connections.
