The Slicer’s component parts include a stainless steel valley-type fruit turnover, white sanitary fruit conveying belt, a series of stainless cutting knife and a discharge chute.
Machine is powered by a V-Belt motor drive arrangment.
In operation, peeled, graded peach halves are delivered onto the valley type Turnover Shaker which discharges them, in cup-down position, over a flexible hinged apron and onto a rapidly moving feed conveyor belt.
Finger-like centering spring blades, supported on both sides of extending over the belt, guide the pieces of fruit in a single line to the revolving slicer knives that cut the halved fruit into segments.
Due to the arrangement of the knives, the segments number one more than the number knives employed. Sanitary construction ensured with all contact parts manufactured on stainless steel.
All moving parts readily accessible for cleaning.
Stainless steel knives with long beleved cutting edges.
Rugged construction ensures continuous service and long machine life with a minimum of upkeep expense.
The peach halves, peeled and selected, are transported in the slicing section where they are cut into slices for the canning process
