Tong Engineering fine tunes vegetable polishers
Tong Engineering has unveiled several updates to its range of vegetable polishing equipment.
Originally introduced to the market in 2012, the TPS-Pro polisher features an electric direct-drive motor inside every brush shaft. The machine’s low-maintenance design uses the highest quality components, providing exceptional longevity, labor efficiency and superior polishing results.
Manufactured in a 14-brush model featuring a 3m long x 800mm barrel, as well as an 18 brush model featuring a 3m long x 1050mm barrel, the TPS-Pro polisher is suitable for effective polishing of root crops including potatoes, carrots and parsnips, providing outputs of between 15 to 30 tonnes per hour.
For lower throughputs of up to 10 tonnes per hour, Tong’s popular U-Brush polisher is a favorite amongst smaller packers who require a reliable, low-maintenance machine that provides a high-value polished finish, but at a lower cost.
The U-Brush polisher has also been updated for 2021 to increase the machine’s capacity. Besides being a very economical machine, one of the unique features of the U-Brush polisher is its internal bypass system which allows operators to effectively bypass the polisher in instances where the polishing process is not required.
