How to peel a pomegranate / peeling a pomegranate / pomegranate peeler

Pomegranate peeler is used to peel the husk of pomegranate in order to extract clean seeds. These seeds then are pressed by juicer machine later, and you can get delicious pomegranate juice finally. The crushing roller of the upper crushing device is made of stainless steel, and the gap between the two roller is adjustable, that is 22- 30mm. The damage to the pomegranate seed is low, and the gap between the two rollers is 15-22mm.

During this process, two machines are needed. One is pomegranate peeler, and the other is the juicer machine. As for the peeler machine, it can be divided into two types, one-layer inlet peeler machine, and two-layer inlet peeler machine. Two-layer inlet pomegranate peeler bears higher capacity, and the first layer contains blades to break the pomegranate, and the second layer is rubber roller that squeezes the raw material. However, the content of tannin will increase, and the final juice tastes a little bitter. This machine widely applies to beverage and liquor processing industries.

Pomegranate seed extractor is frequency conversion control, and there are tow motors. One is to control peeling and the other is to crush. The rotation speed of both motors can be adjusted on the electric cabinet.

Advantage of pomegranate peeler

  1. Peeling effect is very good, and you can get very clean kernels.
  2. Peeling a pomegranate machine is made of 304 stainless steel, and it is corrosion-resistance and has a long service life.
  3. Peeling a pomegranate machine has frequency conversion control, and it is easy to operate and maintain.
  4. The long screen with holes can fully discharge the pomegranate seeds.
  5. The long protective cover can ensure the safety of the operator.
  6. The most pomegranate seeds won’t break after peeling and has a high juicing rate.

Main structure of pomegranate peeler

pomegranate peeler is mainly composed of a feeding hopper, a first-stage crushing, a frame, a protective cover, a separating shaft and a rotating screen, a transmission system, an electric control cabinet.

  1. Feeding hopper

The pomegranate enters the hopper through a hoist or manually.

  1. The crushing device

Installed on the top of the equipment, it is a primary crushing device. The crushing roller of it is made of stainless steel, and the gap between the two rollers can be adjusted by 22-30mm.

  1. Separation device

It consists of a separation shaft, a separation screen and a transmission system. Separate vanes distributed in a spiral shape are mounted on the separation shaft. The separation screen consists of a stainless steel plate that separates the husk from the pomegranate. The transmission system is located at the front the frame for deceleration and variable frequency speed regulation. The separation shaft and the separation and rotation screen are driven by the sprocket set.

  1. The frame

It is a supporting part for the different spare parts and all are made of high-quality stainless steel.

  1. Electrical control cabinet

It is assembled by the cabinet, electrical components, frequency converter, etc., and is used to control the opening and closing of the motor, crushing and separating devices, and the adjustment of the separation speed.

The installation of pomegranate peeler

  1. The installation site should be hardened and keep level with good drainage performance.
  2. If necessary, the machine can be fixed with four M16 expansion bolts.
  3. Each reducer should be injected with lubricating oil according to the instructions. The transmission chain is coated with molybdenum disulfide grease. The supporting bearings of the transmission are injected with the proper amount of molybdenum disulfide grease. The crushing roller support bearing should be filled with an appropriate amount of vaseline lubrication.

Use and maintenance of pomegranate peeler

  1. After the pomegranate seed extractor is installed, check whether the fastening parts are firm.
  2. When the pomegranate seed extractor starts working, the pomegranate firstly passes through the crushing device and finally are separated.
  3. Press the separation button and the rotary screen should rotate counterclockwise.
  4. Press the crushing button and the pair of gears on the crushing roller should be relatively rotated and tend to be lower.
  5. Confirm that each driving part is running normally before turning it on. The pomegranate peeler should idle for an hour without abnormal noise, and the temperature of bearings can not excessively rise.

The preoccupation of pomegranate peeler

  1. The pomegranate can not be stored for a long time in case that the husk is too dry to cause the bad peeling effect.
  2. The size of pomegranate should be similar, and the size difference is no more than 15mm.
  3. The gap between the screw blade on the screen barrel and bottom board should be less than 2mm in order to discharge the pomegranate seeds.
  4. The gap of the roller is determined by the size of pomegranate, so it is necessary to confirm it with the customer.
  5. Sort the pomegranate before working and you shall strictly prevent iron, stone and other hard objects from entering the body.
  6. Adjust the speed of the separation shaft to see if the pomegranate slag meets the requirements. If yes, record the position of the speed control pointer for the next use.
  7. If the pomegranate husk contain many seeds or the seeds mix with much broken husk, the distance between the crushing rolls and the speed of the separating device should be adjusted.
  8. After working, you shall use water to clean the whole pomegranate seed extractor. The crushing roller should be clean without any residue and sewage. In addition, you need to use10% hot alkali (brush) to remove dirt adhering to the surface of the machine.

Working steps

  1. The pomegranate enters the upper crushing device from the feeding hopper, and the whole pomegranate is squeezed into several small pieces through the relative extrusion of the crushing roller and the crushing of the blade on the roller.
  2. Then pomegranate enters the lower crushing device for the second crushing. The lower crushing roller is made of non-toxic and highly elastic rubber.
  3. After two stages of crushing, the pomegranate, which has been separated with husk and seeds, falls into a separation device (separation shaft and rotary screen) equipped with variable frequency speed regulation.
  4. Under the rotation of them, pomegranate seeds and part of the juice flow out from the screen hole,  and the pomegranate husk is discharged from the tail of the device.

Note: the screen diameter is 13-16 mm. If the pomegranate has special size, please tell us when ordering.

  1. What is the broken rate?

The broken rate can not be calculated.

  1. Why the husk contains the pomegranate seeds?

The husk of pomegranate is too dry.

  1. Do the seeds need to be pressed by other juicer machines?

Yes, this pomegranate seed extractor just can extract the clean pomegranate seeds, and they need to be juiced by juicer machine later.

  1. What is the final pomegranate juice used for?

It can apply to the beverage and liquor processing industries.

  1. Can I adjust the rotation speed of the motor?

Yes, of course, it can be adjusted on the electric control cabinet.

  1. Is this pomegranate seed extractor only suitable for pomegranate?

Yes, the raw material only is pomegranate.

  1. Are there any requirements for pomegranate before the operation?

Yes, first, pomegranate should be similar, and the pomegranate husk shall not be too dry.

  1. What are the vulnerable spare parts?

They are blades, screen, and rubber roller.
