Tomato Paste Production Line - Food and Beverage
Main Equipment in Tomato Paste Processing Plant
1. Surfing type washing machine
Tomatoes are washed by high pressure water in the fruit washing machine. Scraper elevator conveys the cleaned tomatoes to the next procedure.
2. Roller sorting machine
Cleaned fruits enter into the machine from the feeding hopper, and rotate forward toward the outlet. Workers pick out the unqualified tomatoes to ensure the quality of the end product.
3. Broken Pump
Used for conveying and crushing of tomatos, preparing for pre-heating and pulping.
4. Tubular Preheater
Tubular preheater increases the temperature of the pulp by steam heating, so that to soften the pulp and deactivate the enzymes.
5. Single-channel Pulping Machine
Single-channel pulping machine is used for automatic separation of pulp and residue from the crushed and preheated tomatoes. The material from the last procedure enters into the machine through the feed inlet, and spirals toward the outlet along the cylinder. By centrifugal force, the material is pulped. The pulp passes through the sieve and is sent to the next procedure, while the skin and seeds are discharged through the residue outlet, achieving the aim of automatic separation. The pulping speed can be changed by changing the sieve and adjusting the lead angle of the scraper.
6. Vacuum Concentrating Boiler
This equipment is used for vacuum concentration of tomato pulp under low temperature. Steam is fed into the jacket at the lower part of the boiler, making the material under vacuum boil and evaporate. Blender in the boiler helps strengthen the flowing of the material.
7. Tubular Sterilizer
Tubular sterilizer increases the temperature of the concentrate by steam heating, achieving the aim of sterilization.
