Bell peppers are manually positioned in the clamping arms of the stock table in pairs from an optional conveyor belt. The clamping arms are pneumatically controlled and hold the product centred in position. The stock table rotates step-by-step. During a complete rotation, the peppers may go through a maximum of 4 process stations depending on the model of the machineIn the first process, the pepper’s stalk will be removed. In the second station, the pepper is decored and all the core seeds are removed by means of a vacuum unit. The corer is connected through a hose to the vacuum unit.
The next station is optional and consists of capping and cutting the bell pepper horizontally. The knives cut off the top and bottom at a pre-set distance. An extra knife can also be positioned that cuts the bell pepper in half. These functions can also be switched off.The fourth and final station (option) introduces the segmenting section where the product can be processed into segments of various numbers of cuts. This function can also be switched off.
The bell pepper decorer processes bell peppers with a minimum length of 2 3/4” and a maximum length of 6”. The diameter that can be processed lies between 2 3/8” and 4 1/2”. The machine is, therefore, suitable for all bell pepper classes.
The bell pepper decorer has a capacity of 60 pieces per minute depending on how skilled the operator is.
