Suggested Applications

How it Works

Product moves into the in-feed using a gravity chute. The U-Bed design and full-length augers peel, scrub or wash. Machines feature an adjustable gate or full-length auger (preferred) to control product discharge.


  • Higher recovery with full-length auger, compared to gates/short internal augers: 1.7% higher recovery over gate-controlled, sine wave roll machines, 2.8% higher recovery in French fry production after steam peeling, using full-length auger
  • Higher productivity and less downtime with a larger cage and longer rolls
  • Lower peel variability (reduce over/under peel by 50% or more) with full length auger


  • Easy and inexpensive to maintain with bearings on one end of rollers
  • Quality construction, precision manufacturing
  • Simple electric or hydraulic drives system, each with few replacement parts; each roll is driven by six basic components
  • Easy and fast roll change-out; complete in 30-45 minutes
