The Brusher addresses your needs to gently remove loose peel or to aggressively remove product defects by using the highest reliable brush technology on the market.


The Brusher works in conjunction with the TOMRA steam peeler and is optimized to ensure your process requirements can react to potato and vegetable quality variations.

The Eco steam peeler and Orbit steam peeler reduce the need to over peel. The TOMRA HMI provides you with a simple user interface to adjust the Brusher, optimize the quality, and achieve maximum efficiency. The design differs radically from other products in the market regarding automation, control, construction, process flexibility, and reliability, offering minimal maintenance. With a selection of brush types and machine sizes designed to match your processing requirements, this unit can achieve a high level of peel separation and some defect removal while at the same time providing automated control for your individual needs.

The Brusher is a low-cost solution.
