TOMRA Food, one of the world’s largest peeling solutions providers, has installed a BABCOCK WANSON VAP600RR Coil Type Steam Boiler into its test centre in Dublin, Ireland, where it is being used to carry out tests and demonstrations for food peeling applications.

The VAP600RR is being used at high pressure - 29 bar – to produce steam which is used to peel potatoes and other vegetables. Steam peeling is the most efficient method of removing skin from vegetables, resulting in significant savings of raw material and energy. TOMRA Food is the leader in steam peeling and food sorting, and their solutions are present in the processing facilities of the world’s leading food producers.

The TOMRA Food facility in Ireland is home to the company’s research and development team for steam peeling.
