Rotary grader

September 1, 2009




Key’s rotary size grader removes short pieces, nubbins, loose seeds and snipped ends of vegetables while conveying good product to downstream equipment. The rotary bed consists of a series of pocket rollers (each with a stainless steel shaft) and specific combinations of patented rubber rollers and plastic disks that create the pockets. The grader is designed to classify small to medium-size products by length or volume. Common applications include French fry strips, cut and whole green beans, julienne vegetables, onion and bell pepper strips.
