Tomato processing machine in the automatic paste production line
In all large-scale production lines, an elevator is an important machine used to connect two machines and transfer materials from one to another. In the tomato sauce production line, the hoist mainly applies for conveying the tomatoes into the washing machine and the crusher. The length of the hoist and the angle of inclination can be customized according to the height of the related machine.
Tomato cleaning machine mainly adopts the bubble-type cleaning machines. The cleaning machine adopts all stainless steel. And it uses a fan to blow the wind into the water to produce bubbles. The air bubbles produced by the fan continue to tumble in the sink. Therefore, it can achieve the purpose of cleaning tomatoes. And the tossing blisters will not damage the tomatoes. According to the tomato sauce production output required by customers, we can customize different lengths of tomato cleaning machines to meet production needs.
The packing machine can automatically transport tomatoes. During transportation, it needs to pick out bad tomatoes manually. It can also add a spray pipe above the machine to spray tomatoes. The length of the picking machine can be customized according to production needs. It also has a roller bar, plate type, and chain style. Therefore, it can meet the production needs of large and small tomato paste production lines. And there is a sink under the machine to ensure the sanitation of the production process.
After picking, you need to use a hoist to transport the tomatoes to the crusher inlet. This machine is for the preliminary crushing of tomatoes. The tomato crusher adopts multiple sets of cross-blade structures, which can crush tomatoes into small diameter particles.
The buffer tank is used to store crushed tomato juice. The crushed tomato juice needs to storage in a buffer tank before entering the preheating and enzymatic elimination. The size of the buffer tank can be customized according to the output of the ketchup production line.
Preheating enzyme killer
The purpose of the preheating enzyme killer is to heat tomato juice and kill enzymes. The machine connects the steam to the coil and heats it to blanch and pre-cook the material. The material enters the enzyme inactivation machine through the feed port, and the machine’s conveyor belt advances the movement of tomato juice. It can realize blanching and cooking while conveying. The steamed tomato juice is output through the discharge port. The machine applies in the large-scale fruit and vegetable processing production lines and realizes continuous operation.
Beating and refiner
This refiner machine realizes the function of beating for the second beating, and it is mainly used for beating and residue separation of crushed tomatoes. Compared with the first beating, this beating makes the tomato juice particles smaller. And it also has the function of separating tomato juice and residue. In addition to being used in the tomato paste production line for tomato beating, the machine can also be used for apples, pears, softened hawthorn, dates, and other fruits.
The vacuum concentrator can concentrate the original concentration of tomato paste into the required concentration of tomato paste. The vacuum concentrator mainly composes of a heater, an evaporation chamber, and a circulation system. It is in a vacuum state, through continuous circulation heating to make the material boil and evaporate water at a low temperature. Therefore, it can remove a large amount of water in the ketchup, reduce weight, and increase the concentration of the ketchup. Because the tomato sauce evaporates under the vacuum and low-temperature state, it will not damage the processed materials by high temperature. Therefore, it better preserves the taste and nutrition of the tomato sauce.
Casing sterilization machine
A casing sterilizer is a machine specially used for the sterilization of concentrated fruit juice, tomato paste, and other high-concentration materials. The machine adopts a multi-layer casing structure, which can instantaneously sterilize tomato paste at high temperatures. But it will not destroy the tomato paste nutritional content, and it will not change the ketchup color. It mainly passes through the preheating section, the sterilization temperature holding section, and the cooling section.
Ketchup packaging machine
The sterilized tomato paste by the casing sterilization machine needs to be packaged before it can be distributed to the market. The ketchup packages circulating in the market usually come in bags, cans, and other packaging forms. According to different packaging forms, we provide a variety of ketchup filling machines, such as ketchup bag packaging machines and aseptic filling machines. The specific matching packaging machine in the tomato paste production line needs to be matched according to the customer’s packaging requirements.
