New raw material
Faster frying time
New cuts and shapes
Longer knife durability
The Elea Pulsed Electric Field SmoothCut™ belt systems are the optimal solution for the treatment of potato, sweet potato, taro, cassava and parsnip for French fries production. The SmoothCut system is available in a range of four models: SmoothCut One, 10, 100 & 1000 able to process capacities from 1 t/h up to 60 t/h. All of them have a quick start-up, small footprint and are easily implementable in your French fries line. This system allows large energy and water savings along many other process and product benefits.
Less oil uptake
Faster process time
Reduced blanching time
Low energy use
Faster frying time
Reduced blade wear
Enhanced process optimisation
Reduced water consumption
The Elea SmoothCut™ Pulsed Electric Field treatment enables gentle cell opening in the tuber cell (potatoes, taro etc). This results in a softer raw material that is much easier to process and brings added benefit to the production of French fries. Improved cutting behaviour results in less knife wear and in less breakage. Elea PEF reduces feathering and enables longer fries, and a smoother surface resulting in an even color and less fat uptake. The yield is improved by longer fries, less breakage and less starch in the process water. The SmoothCut™ system saves energy and reduces water consumption. Because the Elea PEF treatment is a cold process, microbial load is reduced and fortnightly operation intervals become feasible. Overall savings of up to 90% compared to traditional preheating can be achieved and odor and hygiene problems normally associated with preheating can be avoided. The frying time of the French fries process is reduced which produces an even color in the fries and improves fryer capacity.
Elea reveals new applications to both process and raw produce.
Elea SmoothCut™: saving energy and lowering water usage, increasing yield and improving colour and quality.
PEF brings positive and dramatic changes to the manufacturing process as well as to the actual raw materials themselves.
With Elea PEF, we can create radical new opportunities for French fries. The SmoothCut™ alters the cell structure and raw materials have their full potential released. For example, this twisted sweet potato French fry was easily cut from the softened sweet potato, is fully flexible and does not break. Based on the improved water release, which is clearly visible here, also the frying process is much faster.
