The new machine removes vines from potatoes as they enter the receiving line in-plant, eliminating costly plugs and downtime.
We’re excited to announce the launch of our new Vine Remover machine. We’ve spent years developing this solution that separates potato vines from product as it comes into the plant from harvest.
“Vanmark’s new vine remover machine is the first of its kind for us,” said Jason Davis, general manager, Vanmark. “Eliminating plugs and downtime caused by vines caught in the machinery should be a game changer for potato processors. For example, French fry processors process up to 175,000 pounds of potatoes per hour and need to do so as quickly and reliably as possible.”
The Vine Remover separates dirt and vines from potatoes as they are fed into it before they move down the line, removing more than 80% of the vines. Potato vines often get caught in receiving and transferring equipment, plugging it up and causing costly downtime for processors. It helps ensure debris-free raw product before processing with a maintenance-friendly sanitary design, featuring easy access panels and cover construction, simple pitch adjustments, and one motor operation.
