Cabbage De-coring Machine
The ExtractaCore® cabbage De-Coring Cell is a high-speed core removal system for green cabbage varieties including gazelle, gregorian, spring, savoy and more?
How it works
The product is conveyed toward the cutting point on a continuously moving twin lane bed, in cups specially designed to support the product and avoid pressure point bruising during processing.
High-speed Stainless-steel cutters achieve accurate core removal with a variable speed up to @120 heads per minute, yield is maximised as only the core is removed.
The De-cored product, representing 90% of the product yield, travels onto an inspection conveyor and the extracted 10% core waste is conveyed away separately. The product and core are totally separated.
Is it for you?
The ExtractaCore® cabbage De-Coring Cell is an essential tool for the commercial processor of fresh cut green cabbage.
The mechanical cell is extremely reliable and can be easily maintained by your existing plant engineer.
The benefits to YOUR business
Cabbage is processed accurately with a speed variable of up to @120 heads per min, the core is removed with minimal removal of the surrounding product, so saleable product yield is increased to around 90%* of the overall processed product.
Another benefit is gained because the waste element is minimised down to 10%*, meaning that waste transportation savings can be seen immediately.
With all ExtractaCore® equipment the speed of cut also features in minimising oxidisation and optimising the shelf life of the product. Very little heat is transferred into the crop at time of processing, product deterioration is delayed and vital time is gained for the cooling process.
Your expected ROI - from the point of cutting the cost of labour and maximising yield.
Average ROI with an ExtractaCore® Lettuce system is 3-6 months.
