Innovation and improvements are in the Kiremko genes. Every day, we are looking for even better solutions. We focus on effectiveness and quality, as well as efficiency and cost-reduction.
In addition, we introduce sustainable technologies, such as the recycling of energy and water. Nothing is impossible; that is why we continue to innovate in order to obtain optimum results from your production process.
The Kiremko WeighGuard is the newest development in dosing and
weighing flavourings as an addition to your product.
De Kiremko WeighGuard has been developed on the basis of years of
experience and innovative development. The Kiremko WeighGuard prevents over or under-dosing meaning a higher return. The end product is always uniform and consistently flavoured.
The Kiremko PeelGuard is a fully new designed system for the in-line inspection of peeled potatoes. Contrary to existing e-sorters on the market today, the machine is equipped with a weigh belt so that the exact peel result can be calculated accurately. In combination with the latest vision technology, the system is also able to detect remaining colour defects.
The system will give processors in-line reliable information on essential variables such as: percentage of green and black potatoes, percentage of peel rest and loss of mass (= peel loss). The system can also be configured for calculating the thickness of the removed skin and cooking ring. A peeler control module is available in order to continuously optimize the steam peeler settings. This way, the PeelGuard guarantees the processor a constantly optimum peeling yield and up-to-date information with respect to quality of raw material used. This information can be made available to the customer’s MES and/or ERP systems.
There are two versions available: the PeelGuard, a stand-alone unit with the above described functionality and the PeelGuard LT, two machines in one: a TriPlus free-fall potato sorter for high capacity for colour defects and foreign objects removal with integrated PeelGuard module but without the weigh belt and additional data functionality.
The STRATA Invicta sets the new standard in steam peeling systems, offering the highest yield at the shortest possible cycle times.
It peels potatoes thinner than any machine, removing only the skin with a minimum of cooking ring! Fast, accurate and reliable, the STRATA Invicta will really steam things up in your potato processing line.
The latest innovation in defatting, the Oil Miser. The system which recovers oil from fried products after the fryer has proved to be reliable and effective and gives an extremely good return on investment.
The system can be built to suit all line capacities and can be customized to suit French fries (coated or uncoated) and formed potato products. Together with Idaho Steel Products and Reyco Systems, an engineering group was formed to share experiences, ideas and technical knowledge resulting in a complete upgrade of the system. It is now more effective and built to reach the ever more stringent hygiene requirements of modern process plants. Ultimately, several design changes mean it can be manufactured in the most cost effective manner.
Decreasing steam peeler blow-off noise
To reduce the noise produced when steam is blown off by a steam peeler, Kiremko has developed a silencer.
The noise released when steam is blown off creates a noise nuisance and is a reason why an environmental permit can be declined. The new Kiremko silencer has been developed to transform the long range low frequency sounds into a higher frequency which can then be substantially reduced in the silencer.
The silencer consists of a perforated large basket. The exterior and outlet have been completely lined with a sound absorbing material which is suitable for all weather conditions.
Long life carborundum
A hard-wearing coat consisting of three components, suitable for the food sector. It is based on a two-component mixture acting as an adhesion layer and a wear layer, with a third component, fine and very hard-wearing carborundum (also known as ‘ silicium carbide’), added to it.
When carborundum peelers are used in the potato chips industry, grains or pellets sometimes enter the cutting machines and damage the knives.
Applying this long life carborundum to these peelers offers the benefits of this being a hard material that is virtually or completely free from wear, and on which dirt cannot accumulate. Long-term testing has shown this material to have a longer service life and to develop fewer deposits, i.e. to remain cleaner. The glazed starch layer that is left behind on the carborundum can be cleaned and removed quite easily.
This long life coating is applied both to batch abrasive peelers and to continuous roller-type abrasive peelers.
