The Mechanical Lettuce De-Coring Cell: Product

The ExtractaCore® Lettuce De-Coring Cell is a high-speed core removal system for lettuce varieties including Iceberg, Endive/Apollo, Butterhead, Roundhead, Bibb, Radicchio and more?
How it works
The lettuce 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 @120 heads per minute, yield is maximised as only the core is removed  

The De-cored lettuce, 95%+ of the product, travels onto an inspection conveyor
and the extracted -5% core is conveyed away separately
The product and core are totally separated

Is it for you?
The ExtractaCore® Lettuce De-Coring Cell is an essential tool for commercial fresh cut salad

The mechanical cell is extremely reliable and can be easily maintained by your in-house engineers

The benefits of this machine to YOUR Business

Lettuce is processed accurately @120 heads per min, the core is totally removed
saleable product yield is increased to around 95%+* 

waste is minimised to 5%* and waste transportation savings can be seen immediately

With all ExtractaCore® equipment the speed of cut minimises oxidisation and optimises 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
