In order to obtain an excellent finished product, the raw material should reach its destination in the shortest time, thereby reducing the stress it has undergone during the mechanical harvesting and its transport to the factory.
Even choosing the best crops, any effort could be thwarted if the processing stage was wrong.
From the unloading, washing and sorting operations, FBR-ELPO handles raw materials in a delicate and accurate way.
Purees, concentrates, dices, pulp, peeled tomatoes… The best final products are obtained only with the utmost respect for tomato.
For over 50 years, FBR ELPO has been designing machines and lines for tomato processing, manufactured according to the production capacity and the final product to be obtained.
The lines include machines for product receiving and sorting, enzymatic inactivation, hot break and cold break technologies, juice extraction, pan concentration, dicing, peeling, sterilization and aseptic filling.
Single machines and complete processing lines are conceived and designed to ensure great care during processing, more flexibility, attention to consumption and sustainability.
The whole production cycle of FBR-ELPO’s equipment is managed by a new system called INTUITIVE RELATIONSHIP INDUSTRIAL SUPERVISION (IRIS), consisting of an Industrial computer with touch screen and a PLC.
All process variables are monitored and managed by means of sensors and electronic devices which send values to the PLC and IRIS.
Every element of the line is constantly checked and the system can send diagnostics to the Service Department to foresee any kind of problem.
FBR ELPO’s machines can be connected to suppliers’ and transport company’s software and systems to create a true Industry 4.0 network.
