Knife peeler UP

The UP-8000 knife peeler is designed for peeling long products such as carrots, radish, and cucumbers. The product is placed on the V-conveyor and moved onto the first set of transport rollers. No orientation of the product is needed unless the product is extremely tapered.

The machine is equipped with transport rollers that convey the product horizontally through the machine. The product passes 8 peeling stations which completely peel the product.

The knife stations and the transport rollers are equipped with a quick-release system, which allows easy removal for replacement or cleaning.

The peeling waste drops into bins on the underside of the machine.

Product specification

Longitudinal (root) vegetables of diameters of between 1″ and 2 1/3″. The product should be at least 6 1/3″. The product should be washed and sorted, and free from stones, and any foliage should be removed.


The capacity of the UP-8000 is approx. 6.000 – 8.500 pieces per hour.


Knife-peeled end product

The peeled product still has its natural orange colour and it has a smooth surface that looks like the product was peeled by hand.
