    Cleanliness of potatoes determines their success in further processing. While cleaning is not complicated, you must do it correctly for it to be effective. The basis is established by natural laws, such as floating power and specific gravity.

    As a result of our extensive experience, we have developed a technology for optimal water flow, as well as a specific design of the rinse basin. The technique produces a potato that is free of any stones or greens and removes any poor-quality potatoes, which can be processed further without future problems occurrence.

    Cyclone destoner

    The cyclone destoner is used to remove stones and clay shells. Gradients and flow rates determine the optimal result. Among the many distinguishing features of the cyclone destoner are a reliable stainless-steel pump, a 5-mm thick plate steel and a polyurethane layer that functions as wear-resistant material. A practical and reliable system that delivers results with no-nonsense technology. The system is available in different capacities, up to 70 tons per hour.

    Drum washer

    The drum washer will remove soil, clay, and sand from the potatoes through the principle of mutual friction. Steel strips alternately positioned on the surface of the direct driven drum and on either side contain smooth and trim edges. This means that no unevenness will damage the potato. This washer's excellent access means it's easy to maintain. Naturally, the device also reduces your water consumption.

  • Peeling

    Over the years, Kiremko has become one of the leading specialists in potato peeling due to continuous innovation in this technology. To achieve excellent results when peeling potatoes, Kiremko knows what temperature setting is necessary along with an accurate depth measurement determined to within millimeters. With less peel removed, your process will yield better results.

    All Kiremko peelers are manufactured with the latest technologies, incorporating easy maintenance and easy cleaning, giving them a low energy consumption and robust performance.

    Abrasive type peeler

    The abrasive peeler excels in its simplicity, efficiency and minimum footprint, guaranteeing smooth and clean results every time. Ideal for potato chips lines and other small scale potato processing lines.

  • Cutting

    Producing a high-quality product requires accurate cutting tools. Due to this, Kiremko has made major contributions to the creation of the market standard with the QuadraFlow. The tensioning knives guarantee further improvements in cutting results.

    A revolutionary potato reaper uses an ingenious water pressure guide that allows potatoes to pass through the cutting grid at speeds between 10 and 14 meters per second. The potatoes are oriented in the most efficient direction, so waste and feathering are avoided. Regular shapes and cutting quality can also be ensured this way.

    FAM Centris™ slicer

    The FAM Centris™ is perfect for centrifugal slicing of potato and vegetable chips. Tested and in production since 2015, the line has an ever-expanding range of blades in all shapes and sizes.

    Details
  • Blanching

    A correctly blanched cut product will make further processing more efficient. A blanching process can influence the crispness after frying, the shelf life after packaging, as well as the colour and firmness of the end product. We combine an accurate blanching time and temperature setting with a robust, low maintenance design.

    Our many years of experience have helped us design well-considered and efficient blanchers for various processing lines. These are now exported all over the world and are maximizing tons of potatoes.

    Hi-Flow blancher

    The Hi-Flow potato chips blancher will ensure accurate handling of your product. The ingenious system will ensure a warm water flow that will blanch the potato slices separately from each other. A cross flow also ensures even blanching. The blancher has been equipped with a lifting mechanism, resulting in increased accessibility and very easy cleaning and maintenance.

  • Frying

    Whether producing French fries, potato chips, or pellet snacks, frying is a critical process that requires a consistently high temperature, regular steam discharge, and a short transit time to achieve quality results.

    Kiremko fryers are regarded as a global standard of excellence.

    Our continuous innovation ensures that the technology we offer is keeping up with the most recent market demands, not only to produce a perfect potato product but also to maximise the energy efficiency and sustainability of our operations.

    Potato chips fryer

    The potato chips fryer has been provided with a well-balanced oil-supply system ensuring the transit of potato chips. The controlled temperature profile will ensure a perfect frying result. An a-rhythmical paddle system ensures that the potato chips remain free and moving. Two flues ensure a steam layer across the oil, preventing unnecessary oil oxidation. The insulated hood and frame ensure that virtually no energy loss takes place, resulting in a high yield.

    Details
  • Flavouring

    Successfully adding flavourings depends on the accuracy with which the exact quantities of flavouring are applied and bonded to the hot product. Our objective is to provide a combination of optimum spreading of flavourings and an attractive end product, which is essential for the yield of your production process.

    WeighGuard

    The Kiremko WeighGuard is an advanced system that ensures the accurate dosing of salt, dextrose or other flavourings as an addition to your product. The Kiremko WeighGuard prevents over or under-dosing meaning a higher return. The end product is always uniform and consistently flavoured.
