Banana processing line

Banana processing line

TFM has great experience regarding to banana puree production and has implemented many projects in many countries. This has contributed to developing innovative technologies in various phases of the process from the receiving of raw material to the aseptic bottling of the puree.

Fruits are received in boxes that feed the line of extraction straight into the washer. Next, fruits go to the conveyor belt of peeling where trained operators perform this operation and segregate unfit fruits; at the end of the conveyor belt fruits are submitted to a fogging using an anti-oxidant liquid (optional) and unloaded in the feed hopper of the mono pump. Adding anti-oxidant is optional and it is possible to produce natural puree, keeping the bananas in an environment with modified nitrogen atmosphere.

Besides the manual peeling system is already available an automated system. TFM peeling machine is already operating with great results and with huge costs cutting. The equipment has an automated cleaning system and nitrogen injection to prevent product oxidation.

Following the process the enzymatic inactivation happens and the waste of peel and seeds are separated. The equipment set can operate in a nitrogen modified atmosphere or vacuum to preserve natural color of the product.

The aseptic line consists of deaerator, homogenizer and tubular sterilizer besides the aseptic filler.

TFM has developed an advanced system of automation controlling temperatures in cascades, which allows maximum control and safe in the process of sterilization of banana puree. Only with this system it is possible to acquire a puree of excellent quality and reach the temperatures of process with maximum precision and minimum oscillations.

TFM aseptic filling machines are already prepared for bottling low acid products therefore are ideals for banana puree.
