Preparation part:

Fresh tomatoes will be received in the receiving section and passed to the fruit washing and grading section.

Tomatoes from the reception will be washed in the washing section to remove external dirt and foreign matter on the peel.

The washed tomatoes will be sent to the inspection and sorting conveyor belt, where unnecessary and damaged tomatoes are manually separated.

Required equipment:

Washing machine (wash tomatoes thoroughly)

Inspection conveyor (for manual inspection and sorting of tomatoes)

Processing part:

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.
