A glance at 2017…

The KRONEN GmbH closes the business year successfully by expecting a growth in revenues of about 9 percent, by increasing the staff to 100 employees and by recording even several innovations and highlights.

To name just some of them: the first GEWA washing machine with self-cleaning water filter in January, our international seminar ‘Fresh Vegetable Processing’ in Bogota/Columbia and the introduction of the GEWA XL washing machine, both in July, the first KRONEN networking meeting in Bremerhaven/Germany in August as well as the fresh re-design of one of our bestsellers: the belt cutting machine GS 10-2 in October.

And not to forget: The successful launch of the vegetable spiral cutting machine Spirello 150 – with it KRONEN had once more perceived the need of the market and had been the first developing a solution which can process many different kinds and sizes of products. Thus, no surprise Spirello 150 finds big demand and has become a real success product: KRONEN will deliver the serial number 220 Spirello by the end of the year!

A glance at 2018…

Looking back we can indeed be full of positive anticipation when it comes to the year of 2018, which will be a special one for KRONEN GmbH. We will celebrate 40 years of KRONEN and 20 years of Zillgith/KRONEN – in 1978 KRONEN GmbH was founded and in 1998 KRONEN was taken over by Rudolf Hans Zillgith as the Managing Director.

Today, 20 respectively 40 years later, KRONEN is a globally operating supplier of machines and systems for the catering, specialty foods, fresh-cut and food industry with representatives in more than 60 countries. KRONEN products are delivered in over 100 countries.

We put high efforts in guaranteeing best quality, but also in delivering individual solutions adapted to the demands of the customer in an optimum way. We consider ourselves a partner for our customers and offer consulting and planning in close cooperation with our suppliers and research institutions from Germany and around the world.

In 2018 and beyond it remains the target of KRONEN to move on with innovations for our customers’ purposes and benefit. By this, we want to extend our position as a worldwide leading producer and supplier of machines and complete processing lines.

In our newsletter we will keep you up-to-date on our highlights in 2018. Also, visit our KRONEN stand, e.g. at Fruit Logistica from February 7–9, 2018 – you will receive our invitation in the beginning of the new year!

The cooking and eating habits have been changing over the past years. Healthy nutrition has come to the fore more and more. This includes the consumption of fruit and vegetables. Furthermore the convenience sector gains importance.

One new trend, which came to the centre of attention at the PMA Fresh Summit in New Orleans, USA, from October 20-21, is the so-called vegetable rice, namely Broccoli and Cauliflower stems or also carrots cut in smallest pieces and resembling rice.

The seminar on “Fresh Vegetables Processing in Latin America" was held this year on 13 July 2017 for the second time by KRONEN in collaboration with the Colombian KRONEN agency JUAN NEUSTADTEL SAS at the Corferias Center in the capital Bogota.

More than 80 visitors from all over Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, Peru, Costa Rica, Mexico, Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina and Chile participated in this meeting to find out about new technologies and tendencies in the Freshcut market.

Following these interesting lectures, the seminar participants attended the exhibition booth of JUAN NEUSTADTEL at the trade fair EXPO AGROALIMENTARIA. There, they experienced LIVE demos of various KRONEN machines:

GS 10-2 Belt cutting machine, KUJ V Dice, strip & slice cutting machine, AMS 220 Pineapple melon peeler, UP 350 Packaging machine and the K50-100S Spin dryer.

For a first-hand information exchange, many of the international seminar participants used the offer the following day and visited producers with KRONEN processing lines on site.

The event was rounded off by a dinner together with a show.

High capacity potato processing line: Delivery to the Russian supermarket chain LENTA

Up to 600 kilograms of potatoes per hour are produced by the new KRONEN potato processing line, which recently has been put into operation at the LENTA supermarket chain in St. Petersburg.

LENTA is one of the largest retail chains in Russia and the country's second largest hypermarket chain. LENTA operates 195 hypermarkets in 78 cities across Russia and 53 supermarkets in the Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk and the Central region.

FFor launching their new product portfolio of cleaned, ready-cut and vacuum-packed vegetables such as carrots, beetroot - as well as potatoes in different shapes and various packing sizes – LENTA was looking for the best option of a cost-effective and automatic manufacturing process. With this in mind LENTA approached KRONEN in conjunction with the Russian KRONEN representative INDUSTRIAL NUTRITION to help optimize the pre-preparation of this kind of products. By designing and installing this processing line KRONEN & INDUSTRIAL NUTRITION have made it possible for LENTA to achieve optimum product quality, minimum waste and maximum flexibility.

Individual elements of the potato processing line are:

Peeled potatoes will then be transferred directly onto a KRONEN cutting machine. There are two machine options:

Moreover, both cutting machines offer the big advantage of being mobile and they are, therefore, extremely flexible and can be used at different locations along the line.

Actually, this potato production line has been integrated into a KRONEN washing line which already has been delivered to LENTA last year. The washing line consists of a GEWA 3800 V ECO washing machine and 2 spin dryers K50-7 ECO in combination with a useful and practical basket carousel.

If you also have special requirements and want to go new ways in the food industry, please contact us. We are happy to advise you and look forward to your REQUEST.

22.05.2017

During the vocational training in Hannover at the Niedersächsischen regional authorities for consumer protection and food safety the subject “freshcut fruits & vegetables – technology, microbiology, monitoring” was presented.

The technology of processing freshcut fuits and vegetables was presented by our Technical Manager Eric Lefebvre as a machine demonstration on the KRONEN belt cutting machine GS 10-2.

Furthermore there were experience reports from a manufacturing company (FRIKONI Food GmbH & Co. KG, consultant Mrs. Stramke) and from the retail sector, for example: EDEKA Minden-Hannover foundation Mr. Marggraf.

Another focus of the vocational training was the microbiological risks from such products, presented by the University Hohenheim, and the possibility of the improvement of the microbiological quality. The company KRONEN provided the university with various machines for research purposes, for instance the water jet cutting machine. We are happy about the good feedback by the food supervisors.

    01.03.2017

    From February 8 to 10, 2017, the FRUIT LOGISTICA 2017 was once again the meeting place for the international fruit trade for three days. Kronen was also represented at the trade fair as an expert for the salad, vegetable and fruit processing industries.

    Many visitors were enthusiastic about the exhibited machine highlights. Especially the innovative novelties - and the associated possibilities - were always the starting point for many informative talks and discussions. Especially the live demos of the Kronen novelties - the SPIRELLO 150 vegetable slicer and the high-performance washing machine GEWA XL - proved to be a crowd puller.

    "This gives us the certainty that we have taken the right course with our product developments. The preparation and eating habits of many people have changed considerably in recent years. Healthy nutrition is coming more and more into focus. This also includes the consumption of fresh vegetables. KRONEN responded to the increased demand with the development of innovative machines, "explains Stephan Zillgith, Managing Director of Kronen.

    For example, the SPIRELLO 150 produces healthy vegetable spaghetti. For many years already, Kronen has been on the market with a smaller machine version, the S021 spiral cutting machine. With the SPIRELLO 150, Kronen has now achieved a technological breakthrough, which allows a capacity increase with a constant quality. The SPIRELLO 150 can be used not only to cut long shaped products (cucumbers, carrots, radishes, butternut squash), but also round products, e.g. Kohlrabi or beetroot can be cut into decorative and healthy vegetable spirals.

    With the new GEWA XL, Kronen presented a powerful washing machine for high capacities with low energy and water consumption. This machine allows optimal washing results for large quantities of salads and vegetables. The machine is best suited to reduce cross-contamination and it contributes to increased food safety.

    Federal Minister of Agriculture, Christian Schmidt, was also impressed by the Kronen booth appearance. He was explained the highly innovative novelties by Stephan Zillgith and Eric Lefebvre, Technical Director at Kronen. Already on 27 January 2017 an important meeting took place at the International GRÜNE WOCHE in Berlin. The reason for this was the transfer of the application for the project 'SiMoHyP: Development of an innovative process for increasing the microbiological safety of packaged fresh cut salads by monitoring and sanitizing the process water".

    This project is supported by the BMEL innovation program over a 24-month duration. The project aims to develop an innovative washing technique and a method for the decontamination of the process water, which is used when washing freshcut salads, in order to preserve microbiologically safe ready-to-eat salads while at the same time conserving resources (water consumption, energy).

    "In teamwork with our customers and partners, many creative ideas generated benefits, not only do we develop machines but also share our know-how with our customers," says Eric Lefebvre. The Kronen booth presented itself in a new and attractive design and was again a successful result of synergy between Kronen and the cooperation partners ZTI-Mechatronics and GKS Packaging.

    At this year's Fruit Logistica gourmet chefs Wolfgang Blum and Andreas Eigner spoiled the Kronen stand visitors with exquisite menus - freshly prepared according to their recipes, which were already published in the Kronen annual calendar 2017. The tasty recipes and videos are published monthly in the Kronen newsletter and on the homepage. Thanks to the innovative Kronen technology according to the latest standard, the preparation of these dishes has become a cooking experience with true delights.

    WE THANK ALL VISITORS FOR THEIR INTEREST AND LOOK FORWARD TO SEE YOU IN BERLIN IN 2018!

    First KRONEN GEWA washing machine with self-cleaning water filter for the highest level of kosher production

    GEWA_5000_V_mit_Filter_koscher_bearb_002 | KRONEN Nahrungsmitteltechnik

    09.01.2017

    According to individual customer requirements, KRONEN engineers have developed a GEWA washing machine with integrated water filter. The challenge was to develop a filtration system that would clean itself and not interfere or interrupt the wash water process. Furthermore, the customer wishes of kosher food production were taken into account in machine development.

    The KRONEN company has succeeded in modifying the GEWA washing machine to meet the needs of the kosher market. The washing of iceberg lettuce, white and red cabbage is of particular importance for the customer's requirements. The vegetables are certified by a rabbi before the sale and receive the Hechscharim (certificate). This seal of quality also promises a higher degree of food safety, in addition to the state requirements for food control. The entire wash water is continuously pre-filtered through a slot screen drum at each cycle to 0.5 mm and passes completely through the special filtration.

    With this innovative Kronen GEWA washing machine, freshcut salads, herbs and vegetables are washed thoroughly and carefully in a continuous flow process (without mechanical immersion) with the kosher requirements according to purified water.

    The machine is equipped with a number of following modules and features:
    • The process water runs through the self-cleaning water filter and is returned to the wash tank as "kosher" water. The integrated display shows when the filter system cleans itself and the polluted water is drained. The rinsing process is optimized for water consumption. The digital display is used for tracking and does not require active operation. This prevents the washing process from being interrupted and the filter can clean itself.
    • The Water Management System (WMS) offers an additional advantage. It enables centrally controlled filling and emptying of the washing machines. During operation, the water level in the washing machine is automatically controlled via an additional level sensor. If the water level drops too low, the pneumatic inlet valves are automatically opened and the GEWA is supplied with kosher fresh water. The system includes two valves for filling and two for emptying the machine, as well as the necessary piping. The WMS is operated via the control box of the washing machine.
    • Further features:

    • Insect removal as basket version
    • Lateral fines removal drum
    • And many more ...

    NEW: GEWA Washing machines with UVC water disinfection system

    GEWA3800VECO-UVC_cascade_M_f_rgb | KRONEN Nahrungsmitteltechnik

    12.04.2016

    Latest development from Kronen:

    GEWA Washing machines with integrated UVC water disinfection system

    The subject of hygiene plays an important role in the production facilities of the food industry. Kronen offers a new hygiene highlight with the sophisticated washing technology of the GEWA washing machines for industrial use in industry, catering and commercial kitchens:

    Via a built-in UVC reactor, the wash water is permanently disinfected and returned as UVC-treated process water.

    For this purpose, the market-proven UV components of company sterilAir® (CH-Weinfelden) are in use, which meet the high demands of the food industry.

    For a market-leading customer in Germany, the trading company M.S.G. Frucht GmbH in Maintal, 2 washing machines GEWA 3800V ECO are manufactured in a cascade setup (pre- and main washing) with a new UVC water disinfection system.

    Since 2009, M.S.G. belongs to the Compass Group Germany providing their businesses nationwide as a central fruit and vegetable supplier with exclusive fresh products from the region.

    With this innovative Kronen GEWA washing line, salads and herbs, vegetables and fresh-cut products are washed thoroughly and carefully in a continuous flow process (without mechanical immersion). In addition, the washing machine is equipped with an insect & fines removal system (motorized drum).

    Also, chilled fresh water is added through the shower pipes above the vibration deck via an on-site cooling connection. This chilled water will be returned to the water cycle of the GEWA, thus ensuring a continuous refresh of existing water in the GEWA wash tank.

    The use of the UVC reactor serves in particular the prevention of cross-contamination, ensures higher process reliability and allows a reduction in the amount of water used.

    Details and functional description of the UVC reactor:

    By default built-in pumps in the washing machine, the process water is pumped completely through the UVC reactor. The overall performance is 60 m³/h circulation for a water volume of about 750 liters. This is equivalent to a 80fold theoretical passage of all wash water per hour, or 80 UVC treatments per hour.

    The UVC reactor is connected to the washing machine by a fixed piping, ensuring the return of disinfected water in the wash tank.

    The intensity of UVC reactor is perfectly matched with the capacity of the pumps and the water cycle thus works continuously.

    The UVC reactor consists of 6 ET tubes, which are operated economically via 3 ballasts with an exemplary low energy consumption. These ET modules are equipped with a counter of ignition, the tubes are designed for 12000 ignitions or 12000 operating hours.

    For cleaning and exchange, the UVC tubes are easily removable, this guarantees a high maintainability.

    Basically each GEWA machine can be equipped or retrofitted with an UVC reactor. Upon request, the UVC reactor can be provided for test purposes.

    Technical specification GEWA 3800V ECO:

    • Voltage - 400V 50Hz 3Ph
    • Total power - 5.6 kW
    • Measures LxBxH - 3830 x 1280 x 1540 mm
    • Volume - 745 l
    Capacities:

    Iceberg – up to 700 kg/h

    Spinach – up to 500 kg/h

    Parsley – up to 300 kg/h


    Review: Fruit Logistica 2016 in Berlin

    inc/resizeImage.php?sImage=import/img/FruitLogistica2016_UVClock_Freshplaza.de_29014.jpg&w=220&h=2200inc/resizeImage.php?sImage=import/img/FruitLogistica2016_Messestand_19_web_29009.jpg&w=220&h=2200

    10.02.2016

    Fruit Logistica in Berlin (3-5 February 2016) is one of the most important meeting places for salad, vegetable and fruit processors. A wide audience used the annual event to gain a comprehensive overview of the market and to learn about the latest trends.

    On this year's Kronen booth visitors experienced a large and varied offer of the Kronen machine program. Especially the live demonstrations of the many new developments with customer-oriented applications and solutions encountered keen interest and led to a very positive feedback.

    The attractive Kronen exhibition area was also a successful result of synergy between Kronen and its cooperating partners JFPT Foodlife, ZTI Mechatronics and GKS packaging.

    The culinary specialities – freshly prepared by the gourmet chefs Wolfgang Blum and Andreas Eigner – proved to be another crowd-puller. Some of the delicious recipes have been published in the previous annual Kronen calendars.

    A large number of trade visitors were especially interested in the Kronen novelties:

    1. UVC-Lock Germ reduction lock

    … has been developed for surface disinfection of packaging materials such as boxes, crates, tools, etc. in close cooperation with the Swiss company sterilAir® (CH-Weinfelden).

    Use with food depends on the legislation in the country of the user.

    The UVC-Lock is equipped with the latest UVC technology (hybrid tubes of sterilAir®) and thus combines the high demand for sturdiness, flexibility and easy maintenance.

    An adequate microbiological sterility of packaging materials and storage containers is one of the most important prerequisites for the durability and hygiene of foodstuffs especially in the salad, vegetable and fruit processing industry.

    The UVC treatment with sterilAir® components disinfects safely and reliably: without heat, undesirable additives, residues and within a very short time.

    The DNA of germs is destroyed by the UVC treatment, i.e. contact and smear infections can be prevented effectively.

    Benefits are obvious:

    • Drying of containers (such as after spray disinfection) is no longer necessary.
    • The UVC-Lock is best suited for application in between two separate rooms, e.g. low and high care areas..
    • All materials in the size range of 50 x 50 x 20 mm up to 550 x 300 mm can gently be moved through the UVC-Lock. Thanks to the efficient arrangement of the UVC tubes, an almost complete radiation area is guaranteed.
    • The fully enclosed UVC-Lock housing with cover is made of stainless steel and guarantees the safe use of UVC radiation.
    • The intuitive color touch screen has a user-friendly interface.
    • Long UV emitter replacement intervals and exemplary low energy consumption underline the economic efficiency of the system. Due to their very low emitter temperature, sterilAir® UV components are ideally suited for the treatment of heat-sensitive products.
    2. KWT 16 Weighing table & pedestal with a single head weigher for packaging machines

    This pedestal includes a single head weigher for the ergonomic weighing and filling in conjunction with a GKS packaging machine CP 350 or UP 350. Different products such as vegetables, fruit, salads, baked goods, raw vegetables, sweets (also non-food products) can be weighed, filled and packaged in representative bags.

    The stainless steel pedestal is adapted to the height of the packaging machine and is equipped with safety borders and railings. The mixing table with the integrated single head weigher is arranged in ergonomic height and easily accessible by stairs. The large weighing container with a 16 liter volume is perfectly suited to the weighing of all leaf salads, i.e. Lollo Bionda up to 1 kg.

    The packaging machine CP 350 or UP 350 thus can easily and functionally be filled and operated from the above.

    3. Mango Peeler-de-Cheeker (ZTI Mechatronics)

    … peels the mango and removes the „cheeks“ in one cycle. Once the fruit has been positioned the machine takes the mango by the stone and it passes through the peeling and destoning stations.

    The mango is a very tender fruit and so demands special care in processing. Conventional peeling methods fail to provide the desired result, as the fruit is often damaged. Due to the unique processing method, the Mango Peeler-de-Cheeker holds the fruit not on the outside, by the fruit, but by the stone.

    During the subsequent peeling process the mango is peeled along the fruit. The result of this peeling method offers an “appearance to hand-peeled”, clean and smooth surface of the fruit. After peeling, the mango is de-cheeked, i.e. divided into two halves. This unique processing method increases the shelf-life of the product.

    WE THANK ALL VISITORS FOR THEIR INTEREST AND LOOK FORWARD TO SEE YOU IN BERLIN IN 2017!

    05.05.2015

    Company GHISETTI based in northern Italian Badia Polesine has recently purchased a new processing line handling potatoes up to 800 kg per hour.

    Ghisetti is a long-established and large fruit & vegetable trading company. Quality, freshness and service: These are the cornerstones of the Ghisetti brand for 130 years. Their product portfolio includes cleaned, ready-cut and vacuum-packed vegetables such as carrots, beetroot, corncobs - as well as potatoes in different shapes and various packing sizes.

    In the course of increased demands, Ghisetti decided to produce and process products on its own and on site. The company wants to be faster and closer in the market for pre-cooked, vacuum-packed products. In addition, Ghisetti will expand its product range with various other kinds of vegetables. Therefore, a new facility has been built to make room for the new KRONEN high capacity processing line.

    This production line has been projected in close cooperation with enterprises FORMIT and EKKO for destoning, peeling, washing potatoes and other vegetables. Then, after these processing steps the products are transferred to the suitable cutting machine - depending on whether dices or slices are required.

    This processing line is part of a complete KRONEN vegetable production line consisting of GEWA washing machines, cutting machines and suitable conveyor belts.

    Individual elements of the potato processing line are:
    • Hopper belt for filling with potatoes or other vegetables
    • Destoner for removal of coarse dirt and stones
    • Scale for optimal feeding of the peele
    • Combi 1000 Peeling machine and excentric screw pump for waste transpor
    • Drum washing machine for removal of peel and starch
    • Wasserbunkerband
    • Roller sorting table and return conveyor belt in the knife area of the peeler, for potatoes to be re-peeled. Thereby, automated processes take less time and need less manpower for sorting and end cleaning.
    Peeled potatoes will then be transferred directly onto a KRONEN cutting machine, either to
    • a KUJ V dicing machine, for precise dices or to
    • a GS 10-2 Belt cutting machine, for clean and perfect slices..

    If the potatoes (or other vegetables) do not have to be cut they can be placed directly onto a conveyer belt. Moreover, both cutting machines offer the big advantage of being mobile and they are, therefore, extremely flexible and can be used at different locations along the line.

We are pleased with the positive feedback that we receive from our customers: The trade fair as a meeting place served as a welcome platform to get know each other, for exchanging experiences and ideas and, of course, presentation of our machine portfolio:

    We showcased our novelties:
    • Robot station for tomato processing, consisting of 5 interlinked main components: roller inspection table, cutting machine PGW, image processing system, robot and grip system. Tomatoes are inspected and separated at the roller inspection table and transported to the robot station. Thereon, the tomatoes are detected and selected by the image recognition system which precisely calculates the coordinates of the gripper mounted on the robot. The tomatoes will be gripped by the robot one by one and placed orientated onto the cutting machine PGW where will be cut into perfect and equal slices.
    • GEWA XL washing machine offering optimal washing results for larger quantities of vegetable, salad and fruit. This machine is an outcome of the RESFOOD project (www.resfood.eu/web/) which was showcased at the ANUGA FoodTec 2015 for the first time.

      Objectives of the RESFOOD-project: › Guaranteed dwell time of 45 secs › Sand trap, insect removal system, filter screen › Energy efficiency by optimized water flow › Lower water consumption during washing and spraying › Due to optimized spraying no organic residues on the products, thereby improving durability of the product › Drier product due to belt dewatering

    • AMS 220 pinapple & melon peeling machine for peeling (regardless of the products contours) various fruit such as pineapples, melons of all kind, pumpkins with a smooth surface
    The broad-based and competent portfolio of KRONEN is evidenced by the new business sector “KRONEN SYSTEMS” with an objective of pooling the high level of competence of a group of experts in developing complex solutions for automation and rationalization of food processing technologies. Findings and experiences of this group will be processed in a targeted manner and constantly crosschecked and tuned to the research results of the leading European institutes and renowned research organizations for the food processing technology. KRONEN customers shall be integrated more and more in the implementation of joint research projects in order to benefit as direct application users from the new technologies. This group is open for food technology experts in all areas of industry, research and development.

    „Two in one sweep“

    A major order of a renown European customer constitutes a further milestone at KRONEN’s success story:

    KRONEN engineers developed an automated bell pepper processing line according to specific customer’s requirements, consisting of two (2) GEWA 5050V PLUS Bell Pepper washing machines with integrated transport systems.

    Up to 7 tons/h raw product can be processed (= approx. 5 - 5,5 tons good product). The processing line will become operational already in June 2014.

    These machines have been specially designed for WASHING & SORTING sliced bell pepper (completely cut with core and kernels). One of the key features is an automatic separation method allowing different kinds of bell pepper (diced or sliced) to be processed.

    By means of a sophisticated water streaming system the waste and good product are separated thus saving extensive costs:

    1. Light parts (core and „white parts“) drift on the surface of the water and are discharged by a link conveyer
    2. Heavy parts (kernels) fall to the bottom and are discharged through the sand trap funnels
    3. Good product is discharged by the vibration outfeed for further processing
    The automatic bell pepper processing line consists of:
    • A mobile infeed conveying system (30°) linked with a horizontal shuttle conveyor which allows either one or both machines to be feeded
    • Sand trap funnel for paprika seeds: This sedimentation unit allows an optimal and thorough washing of even very soiled products! In combination with the WMS (water management system), an automatic part-drainage at regular intervals and consequently a permanent regeneration of the washing water can be assured
    • Lateral fines removal drum
    • Exchangable vibration sieves with various perforations (5, 8 und 15 mm)
    • Integrated outfeed belts for good procts as well as waste
    • Modern control technology, by means of a central switch box both machines can be controlled separately and all infeed & outfeed belts can be connected individually
    • And many more features…

    Sensitive handling of vulnerable products...

    Strawberries belong undoubtedly to one of those fruit which need to be treated & washed extremely gently.

    Actually, our Kronen engineers met these challenges by developing creative features at a GEWA 5000 washing machine for a Portuguese customer. This frozen fruit & vegetables producer is one of the most important European actors in the frozen vegetable sector. Acting quick and efficiently are basic guidelines and, therefore, they have invested in an automated machine park.

    The KRONEN GEWA 5000 washing machine is an important component of this automation process: Up to 2 tons of fresh strawberries - and other products such as tomatoes - are washed per hour.

    The machine is specially designed for gentle, continuous washing followed by a combined suction/blowing unit on the belt outfeed.

    First, the height-adjustable DRYING/BLOWING UNIT (1) is drying the upperside of the strawberries (and other products), from a vertical position.

    The SUCTION UNIT (2) removes all the water that is caught in the mesh belt and also reduces the water content from the lower surface of the strawberries coming from the washer. This feature enables a significant reduction of water diversion to subsequent processing steps.

    An additional BLOWING UNIT (3) installed below the belt removes residual small-parts.

    By means of this gentle washing & drying procedure the strawberries - and any other products - are ideally prepared for further processing (in this case: shock freezing).

    Further highlights of this machine are the KRONEN Water-Management-System (WMS = centrally controlled filling and emptying of the washing machines) with 3 sand trap funnels as well as a lateral fines removal drum.

    The Vortex line has been developed for the final treatment of vegetables (including leaf salads and root products) and fruit (e.g. apples, grapes).

    The line features a tubular system with infeed and discharge openings. The pre-cleaned products (fruit or vegetables) are transported into a hopper. Rotating nozzles located at the side gently and reliably flush the products into the system. The product is conveyed with water through the entire length of the tube and finally discharged. The products are moved on to a transport or vibration belt via a water slide. For germ reduction purposes and for enhancing the quality and shelf life of the products, chlorine dioxide or antioxidants can be added to the flushing water. The required contact time can be adjusted and controlled via the flow rate.

    As all KRONEN-machines and lines, the Vortex-line is constructed in a very solid way and, therefore, particularly suitable for operation under very difficult conditions.

    Optional dosing station: to dose and control a suitable additive for product treatment in the water cycle

    With a major order from a renowned European salad processing company, KRONEN can celebrate another success for its international growth strategy. Actually, the 4 Vortex washing lines have been delivered to the major customer mid July 2011.

    24.01.2012

    KRONEN sustains growth momentum:

    Two renowned German salad processing companies already benefit from the innovative KRONEN washing and processing technique in combination with the newly developed automatic weighing belt system. Last Autumn the complete lines have been supplied to allow customers a precise, continuous and automatic dosing of salad and cabbage; a thorough blending of the products takes place in the following GEWA washing machine,

    Mainly Iceberg, Frisee, radicchio and other leafy lettuces with capacities of 1300 - 1400 kg per hour are processed adding a mixture of 5 - 45 % (depending on produce). Dosing sliced cabbage but also other products such as carrot sticks, shall be provided automatically always in the same mixture ratio. The advantages are obvious: Automatic operation and, thereby savings in personnel, continuous weighing process without belt stop on mainproduct, storage of production data (statistics), etc.

    Managing Director Stephan Zillgith explains the function of this advanced weighing belt technology:

    “The master belt (weighing belt at main line) is weighing the main product and providing the mixture quantity to the second weighing belt. Via touch panel recipes can be selected, stored and managed. Daily output quantities, batch quantities, backwards counter and plain text error messages are also displayed. Stand-alone-operation and cleaning mode has been considered as well. The weighing belts with buffer belt will be controlled by a separate switch box. The filling level of the buffer belt will be monitored by an optic sensor and the operating status.

    All important production data can be stored on a CF-card directly via touch panel. Actual data can be monitored on a PC and further processed for e.g. compilation and administration of recipes, etc.“

    18.07.2011

    With this major order from a renowned European salad processing company, KRONEN can celebrate another success for its international growth strategy. Actually, the 4 Vortex washing lines have been delivered to the major customer mid July 2011.

    The new Vortex-lines from KRONEN have been developed for final treatment stage for vegetables (like e.g. various leaf salads, root products, etc.) but also fruits like apples and grapes achieving germ reduction and prolongation of shelf life and, consequently, increase of quality of products.

    The principle of the washing line is simple: it operates by means of a tubular system (inside diameter 150 mm) with infeed and outfeed opening. The precleaned produce (vegetable, fruit) will be poured into a funnel. The produce will be flushed gently and reliably into the system by lateral rotation nozzles. Thereafter the produce flowing through the total tube length will be conveyed to the outlet. The produce than will be delivered to an outfeed belt or vibration belt by means of a water slide. Flexible contact and dwell time of the produce is adjustable from 1 to 3 minutes.

    The modular and space-saving tubular system can easily be integrated into existing salad processing lines, various installation layouts for customer specific conditions are possible. For mechanical cleaning the pipelines can be disassembled easily and quickly by means of screw connections.

    As all KRONEN-machines and lines, the Vortex-line is constructed in a very solid way and, therefore, particularly suitable for operation under very difficult conditions.

    Optional dosing station: to dose and control a suitable additive for product treatment in the water cycle

    FRUIT LOGISTICA: join the big GS 10 price draw!

    2011-te Gold-GS10-Bandschneidemaschine | KRONEN Nahrungsmitteltechnik

    24.01.2011

    Just in time of the Fruit Logistica 2011 in Berlin KRONEN GmbH will have a big event to celebrate: the 2011th „Belt cutting machine GS 10“ – worldwide top selling belt cutting machine of its class – will be presented as GOLD model. In order to celebrate this success with their customers Kronen will raffle this machine.

    The most successful, long performing „GS 10” its the ultimate all-purpose belt cutting machine. It is ideal for use in large kitchens, catering and industrial applications. With its revolving knife the GS10 achieves precise, consistent results. Due to the variable size adjustment of 1 to 50 mm with digital display, the GS 10 is ideally suited for a wide range of applications.

    It is equipped with a new and user friendly program control; knife speed and conveyor speed are programmable and, moreover, up to 100 arbitrary memories are available.

    The GS 10 slices delicate leaf-salad products and herbs like chives, dill, parsley, etc. It also grates and shreds raw vegetables, fruit, cheese, bread and many more products. Blade changes can be made fast and easy, the cut sizes can be adjusted via keypad. Capacity: up to 800 kg/h.

    Special mention must be made of its varied fields of application in industrial environments with their specific demands. There is hardly any other machine on the market that has such a wide range of accessories such as knives, dicing & segmenting tools, infeed & outfeed belts, preparation tables, etc.

    GS10 are in use worldwide, e.g. cutting seaweed on the Russian Sachalin-islands, dicing mangos in Thailand, slicing surimi and chicken meat for sandwiches in France, cutting chives into rings in Northern France and Israel, slicing salmon and herring into bites in Iceland, slicing pineapple in Indonesia, slicing radishes in China, and a series of other things.

    With the new 2D-square cut knives the cutting quality and the cutting capacity are considerably improved: perfect square cuts of lettuce can be cut with this new knife. Chinese cabbage, Iceberg lettuce, Romana, etc. can be processed up to 1000 kg. With its 1400 sold machines all over the world the GS 10 is the most sold machine of its class.

    Based on the proven technique of the world wide most sold belt slicer GS10 the GS 10 TTS belt cutting machine has been developed to be able to control the cut size and minimize the waste on product cut in combination with the horizontal out feed belt.

    With measuring the product size the GS 10 TTS is able to eliminate waste on specific cuts and reduce it to a minimum on others. The cutting is controlled by a PLC and allows the machine to adjust the cut to the product size and the customer’s specification to achieve the minimum waste on applications like melon chunks, pineapple tid bits, chicken breast slices and many others.

    The GS 10 TTS offers as well the possibility to Top & Tail product and even slice product at the same time to the customer’s specification.

    If the special application of the GS 10 TTS is not needed the machine can in addition be used just as a standard GS 10 belt slicer to shred lettuce or carrots, to dice tomato or strip cut cucumbers. A variety of accessories like cutting discs, conveyor belts and trimming tables are available. The solid industrial machine is completely made of stainless steel AISI 304 and can easily be cleaned and maintained.

    At FRUIT LOGISTICA in Berlin Kronen will be exhibiting some new machines as well as a wide range of its machine programme.
