Today we see steam peelers peeling at lower steam times than ever before. No product in the industry can match the speed of peeling, the uniformity of skin removal and the low peel losses of TOMRA’s Eco steam peeler. We are proud to say that TOMRA's Eco steam peeler has become the standard for French fry processors.

The peeler has confirmed the 'Eco' label and demonstrated major reductions in steam usage and energy savings.

One of the requirements in the design of the Eco steam peeler was that it should lower energy usage by up to 25%, worth around € 50,000 tot € 80,000 per year depending on local energy costs.


The Eco technology changes the nature of the steam peeling process from fixed steam supply to a new controlled steam management system. The result is a substantial improvement in processing efficiency and major savings in steam.

The Eco peeler also includes a new peeling vessel design with patented design features. The high pressure vessel includes an innovative product mixing design that enables rapid heat transfer from the steam to the surface of each individual product. The vessel is also equipped with a unique parallel motion door.

These new design features allow for even better process control and shorter steam times. The addition of a completely new process sequence combined with the above features results in lower peel loss.
