Cutting

Whether it's preparation for delivery to the slicer or slicing the myriad of chip styles you need, we provide a variety of cutting systems.

Washing and dewatering plantain and banana slices

Washing & Dewatering

Removing the surface starch and scraps/fines from plantain and banana slices before they enter the fryer will increase production uptime as it helps to ensure the fryer is running at optimal capacity. All washers are designed to separate slices, eliminate clusters, and feed a mono-layer of slices across the width of the fryer for uniform cooking.
