The Peel Scanner² is the latest development of process inspection machines for the potato peeling industry. The Peel Scanner² uses sensor based technology to accurately inspect the product in order to provide essential data for control of the peeling process.

Peel Scanner²

Peel scanning is an important aspect of the control program to ensure that minor changes in the raw material’s quality are detected and the peeling process is adjusted accordingly. Operators can make better informed decisions based on continuously displayed information on the average size and quality of the raw material.

Using an innovative image capture system and sophisticated analysis software, the Peel Scanner² achieves an image resolution of below 0.3 mm. This enables the device to accurately detect the peel percentage, surface defects and dimensional data to control the peeling process with much higher precision than is possible with human operators.

A unique touchscreen allows operators to see live images and data from processing lines. Control parameters, quality settings and set points can be adjusted from the interface panel using password protected access screens.


Customers who currently use the technology to control the peeling process receive up to 8% reduction on steam times and enjoy higher product yields.
