Washing machine (wash tomatoes thoroughly)
Inspection conveyor (for manual inspection and sorting of tomatoes)
The tomato crushing machine can crush tomatoes and other pre-cooked and softened nuts, fruits and vegetables into blocks with a particle size of 5-8mm, and the production capacity is 1-5t/h. Because the cavity is completely sealed, the sanitary conditions are better than those of ordinary crushers, and the noise is low.
Tomato pulp making machine
The washed and graded tomatoes will be transported to the juice extraction and processing unit.
The juice of fresh tomatoes will be extracted in the juice extraction system. The skin, seeds and fibers of the fruit are separated from the extractor and then processed manually.
The extracted juice is heat-treated to avoid quality degradation. It is finely pulped in a pulping machine and a finishing machine to obtain the finished juice.
This juice will be further processed into concentrated juice, which will be concentrated into 12 Brix ketchup, 14 Brix ketchup or 28-30 Brix ketchup.
Lift (feeding to the preheating system)
Thermal crushing system (crushing and instant heating of crushed tomatoes to retain pectin)
Pulper (used to remove seeds and obtain fine pulp as output)
Concentrated sterilization part:
In the concentration section, the tomato juice with 5 Brix will be concentrated to 12, 14 or 30 Brix in the jacketed pot. This juice is concentrated to 30 Brix in a jacketed pan to make a paste.
For tomato sauce, the juice is concentrated to 12-14% TS, then mixed with the sugar solution and all spices. The ketchup is then pasteurized, and the pasteurized paste is transferred to a paste storage tank.
