Maximize production and take advantage of low-maintenance versatility with our steam-pressure Saturno tomato peeler

Our JBT Saturno tomato scalder/peeler is designed to peel and process large quantities of tomatoes efficiently and precisely. You can achieve maximum productivity with minimal effort, thanks to the machine’s simple controls that allow you to easily adjust the scalding time according to the initial or final characteristics of the product.

Despite its impressive throughput capacity, the Saturno peeler ensures you don’t have to sacrifice quality for increased yields. Our expert engineers developed the machine to accommodate a diverse range of processing needs, applications, and end-product categories. By setting the optimal thermal cycle, the scalder/peeler can process different tomato varieties and maturities with very little operational requirements. 

The machine is also built with durability, consistency, and cost-savings in mind. In keeping with JBT’s long-standing tradition, the Saturno peeler was designed and built to limit downtime and minimize costly maintenance and cleaning requirements, reducing the overall cost of ownership.

Features & Benefits

  • Reduced maintenance costs – The machine is crafted for easy cleaning and maintenance, allowing you to save money and time. 

Peeling in Diverse Conditions

The Saturno scalder/peeler empowers you with the ability to peel a variety of different tomato types and maturities with ease, under diverse processing conditions:

  1. Tomatoes can be steam-pressure scalded, immersed in overhead water, and then vacuum-cooled.
  2. Tomatoes can be steam-pressure scalded and then vacuum-cooled.
  3. Tomatoes can be scalded through immersion in overhead water and then vacuum-cooled.

These three systems allow you to maximize peeling yield according to the type of tomatoes being processed and depending on your end-product objectives. If any remaining tomato skins are still attached to the fruits following the above processes, they’re removed by special, highly effective peel separators located at the outlet of the vacuum-cooling valve for maximum consistency and quality.


What are the size specifications of the Saturno peeler?

The Saturno peeler is a high-powered processing system. Therefore, ensuring your floor plan can accommodate its size is essential to achieving efficiency. Its approximate measurements are:

  • Height – 7,000 mm
  • Length – 14,000 mm
  • Width – 5,000 mm

How does the system improve peeling accuracy?

In order to ensure precise removal of skins for each and every unit, the Saturno peeler boasts highly effective peel separators located at the outlet of the vacuum cooling valve. This functions as an additional step after initial peeling to ensure that any residual skins stuck to the product are removed for maximum efficiency.
