Brussel Sprout Trimming Machines

The latest addition to our machinery line up, is the semi-automatic sprout trimmer which is capable of trimming 19,000 sprouts per hour. The success of our trimmer design is due to it's simplicity, making it the most reliable machine of it's type on the market today.From a maintenance perspective, the only requirements are regular lubrication of the product carrier chains and bearings.

The sprout trimming machine offers a huge reduction in the throughput time of any given amount verses manual trimming, whilst still providing a high product yield.

The process starts with a row of four stainless cups, attached to a modular belted elevator that picks up four single sprouts and places them onto an HDP ( High Density Plastic ) product block with bowls machined into them. Once the sprouts have been separated into single items, operatives start on the simple task of orienting the sprout so that the stack, or but is downward facing. The sprouts then travel down the machine where any excess stalk protruding from the underside of the product carriers is very cleanly trimmed. The waste lands on an internal conveyor that exits to the side of the machine and the trimmed sprouts fall from the end of the carrier blocks onto a modular elevator where they are usually discharged into a de-leafing drum, then packaged.

The primary function of our sprout trimmer is to take a small clean cut from the bottom of the sprout, in turn, releasing a single layer of leaf. The end result is the freshest possible sprout, all ready for packaging.

Our sprout trimmer can accommodate all varieties of sprout and doesn't struggle with the changing sprout shapes encountered throughout the harvesting season.
