Destemmer

The destemmer of the models 28 BS & C are ideal for removing stalks from or stripping sweet cherries, morello cherries, plums, olives, blackcurrants and redcurrants. The machine can also be used for the final preparation of broad beans, cornichons and pearl onions.

The stalks are removed on a roller bed consisting of individual rubber-coated stalk-removal rollers. These rollers are driven and rotate in pairs towards each other. A driven turning device which spreads the fruits to machine width and turns them is mounted above the roller screen. The stalks and leaves come into the working range of the stalk-removal rollers, are intercepted by them, detached from the fruit and removed downwards. A spraying device for washing and cleaning the products with fresh water is located above the turning device.

For cleaning and maintenance work the entire turning device can be released and removed by means of quick-action closures. Special-purpose rubber roller covers with different surface structures are available for hard products such as sulphurized cherries etc.

The destemmer is available with varying widths for different capacity requirements.
