 Formit combi 5 vegetable peeler.

The COMBI-5 peeler is designed for a continuous production up to 500 kg/hour (potatoes, graded).

The unique and patented FORMIT Combi-peeler is a machine with a knife cutting surface, resulting in a finished product.

The production with the COMBI-5 peeler can be performed without any additional water. Water is only to be used for cleaning purposes.

The Combi-peeler peels both small and large sized products, resulting in round and oval forms. There is however a limitation to the size of the raw material used, due to the number of the peeling equipment and the auger diameter of the Combi 5.

Advantages of the  Combi-5-CK peelers are:

1.    From raw material to a Knife peeled product in one machine.

2.    A natural shaped end product and thereby superior yield compared to other knife peeled products. (No flat peeling).

3.    A large variety of products can be peeled in the peeler without mechanical adjustments to the peeler.

4.    Can be equipped with plc panel programmed for different raw materials (easy to use Right pre-settings gives good end product and little waist at startup).

5.    Gentle and adjustable tumbling of raw material especially important with sensible products.

6.    Can be operated with or without water.

7.    Semi dry waist pulp that can be pumped.

8.    Good access for cleaning and maintenance.

9.    Long shelf life on rollers both carborundum and knife.(longer shelve life than a conventional carborundum peeler due to high roller speeds)

(Recommended carborundum regretting interval on potatoes 0,5M kilos and recommended re-sharpening on first knife elements 1,5M kilos on potatoes).

10. Low maintenance costs due to long service intervals.

11. Trade in of your secondhand rollers.

12. Continuous self cleaning of the roller due to hi rotation speed.

13. Low energy consumption. (only one peeler with comparably small motors)
