For solid pack apple producers, we offer the Apple Deaerating System, which removes the air from apple slices and blanches them before canning. It eliminates the entrapped air from the fruit to increase specific weight and avoid product oxidation. Furthermore, its clean and easy construction minimizes potential fermentation in the product.

  • A steady platform holds the kettles and distribution belt which is fed by a gooseneck elevator
  • The product is discharged into a take-off bucket conveyor which drains excess water into a holding tank
