The K850 drying system is a further development of KRONEN´s K650 drying system. Here particular attention was paid to the drive and the hygienic design. This resulted in new features such as increased capacity, shortened cycle times or an additional spray system. Despite the size of the machine the infeed height of the K850 is set low deliberately. This means the length of the buffer belt is shorter and therefore saves a considerable amount of space in set-up area of the large-scale unit.
This fully automated system for dewatering cut vegetables, fruit and lettuce including whole leaf processes large quantities on an industrial scale. The system consists of a feed buffer belt, centrifuge, a discharge belt and an external control unit. In a continuous processing operation up to 5 tonnes of product can be dried per hour. The K650 can dry up to 2.8 tonnes of product per hour. Therefore the K850 has been designed to extend the high capacity lettuce and vegetable processing lines. It can be combined ideally with the GEWA XL and GEWA AF washing machines or the GEWA 5000.
