Key process of the tomato paste processing line
Now Shanghai Gofun machinery company will introduce the information of tomato paste processing line to show it works.
1. Discharge platform
When fresh tomatoes come, it's usually in big trucks, and if they use people to unload it, it's going to be very difficult. Therefore, we designed the unloading platform to unload the fresh fruit/tomatoes from the truck using water cannons, while the fresh fruit/tomatoes are transported to the processing line with water. The unloading platform also features a pre-washing of fresh fruits/tomatoes before processing.
This machine is used to delivery fresh fruit from outside the building to inside.
Fresh fruit must be thoroughly washed before crushing. We can use both the bubble machine and the spray washer for washing. If laundry demand is high, more wash steps can be added. In addition, for better cleaning effect, we can add ultrasonic cleaning and ozone cleaning.
After washing, the surface of the fruit is clean, we can check the situation of all the fruit by human eye, and sort out the bad tomatoes by human.
5. Crushing for tomato processing
GFM-FC series crusher has the most advanced working principle, higher execution precision and best crushing function. It is mainly used for crushing various fruits or vegetables, such as tomatoes, apples, pears, strawberries, celery, etc. It can crush the raw materials into small particles, which can increase the working effect of the next process. The machine consists of a hopper, a side cover, a rack, a Main shaft, bearing seat, motor, motor structure, discharge hopper, etc.
The heater is used to heat the product after the crusher, and the temperature is adjustable, generally 45°C to 85°C. This processing step will help increase the amount of juice in the next step and also preserve the color and flavor of the final product.
7. Pulper and refiner
The machine also runs at 1470rpm to generate centrifugal force to make the product pass through the sieve, which is beneficial to the refinement of the product. And we usually use two-stage pulper and refiner, the screen of each stage is different, the screen of the first stage is larger, and the screen of the second stage is smaller. The two-stage pulper can achieve a yield of tomato pulp of 90% to 95%. After grinding, the tomato skin and seeds will be separated from the tomato pulp. The machine has high working efficiency and stable performance; easy to use and replace the screen; suitable for many different types of fruits, including passion fruit, tomato, peach, apricot, mango, apple, etc.;
Vacuum evaporators are used to thicken ketchup under vacuum and at low temperatures. Here we use a vacuum evaporator with forced circulation. Because it is under vacuum and low temperature, the flavor and nutrients are protected to the maximum extent. Now we evaporate the water from the tomato pulp and get a tomato paste, usually 28-30% Brix and 36-38% Brix.
For ketchup, we use tube sterilizers in sterilization tubes. Sterilization temperature and holding time are adjustable. Using this machine, we heat the ketchup to a very high temperature, about 115°C, for 30 seconds, then immediately cool down to ambient temperature. This way, you can also protect the test and nutritional content of the tomato paste as much as possible. The whole system adopts programmable control. The operating system adopts a graphical human-machine interface, which is convenient and intuitive to capture the working status of each component of the machine.
10. Aseptic Filling
Aseptic filling machines are used in conjunction with tube-in-tube sterilizers. This is a closed loop. The cycle will be fully sanitized prior to production to ensure a sterile environment. The filling area is also protected from steam to ensure that the filling environment is also sterile. Security - Provides multiple security methods. Mirror welding technology is adopted to ensure clean and smooth welds. Separate control panel. CIP and automatic SIP are available for sterilizers. Easily accommodates sterile bags of different volumes and sizes.
11. Storage or go blending
The finished product can be stored or used as the raw material to make the tomato sauce or ketchup.
