Tomato Chopper

The Tomato Chopper receives whole tomatoes and chops them into small pieces prior to hot break and subsequent processing.

This chopper economically chops up to 45 tons of tomatoes per hour.

The Process

From the hopper, tomatoes are funneled inside the shell to the horizontal screw conveyor (600 RPM). Propelled forward, the tomatoes press through a stationary shear plate. The rotating cutter chops tomatoes as they pass beyond the shear plate. Chopped tomato product is then discharged through the sanitary outlet.
