Tummers optimizes sorting process with new “Delta” Roller Spreader


Being a machine building company that strives for continuous improvement, Tummers Food Processing Solutions recently took a closer look at their sorting processes. This critical view resulted in an improved spreading machine that improves efficiency. The specially shaped rollers of this “Delta” Roller Spreader ensure a higher return and extended maintenance intervals.


The new Delta Roller Spreader is the result of Tummers’ pursuit for continuous improvement. The machine building company noticed bouncing movements on previous spreading methods with hexagonally shaped rollers and decided they could do better.

“We discovered that triangular rollers with a radius reduce the bouncing. This prevents the product from damaging and improves the supply to the optical sorting machine, reaching higher returns as a result”, Sales Manager Edwin Langbroek explains.

Diversity of products

Tummers’ new Delta Spreader is available with 3 different gaps between the rollers, depending on the smallest product to be spread. It is available with a capacity up to 60 tonnes per hour and features Foodline SKF bearings that meet the latest standards of food safety.

The Delta Roller Spreader is commonly used to transport potatoes from a screw transportation system to an optical sorter, but is suitable for a variety of food products.
