Potato Handling Equipment

  • AUTOMATIC DUAL PALLET BOX FILLER - PBF-30D
    The Automatic Pallet Box Filler achieves continuous high capacity filling and gentle handling by rolling product into the boxes. Place empty boxes on each lifting platform. The PLC based control system rotates the empty box 80 degrees up to the end of the top of the conveyor. A photo eye sensor detects product loading and gradually lowers the box back into the level position. The top conveyor automatically reverses and completes the sequence again for the second box. Can be used for potatoes, carrots, onions, parsnip, and other roundish produce. 4' by 7' long boxes are filled using a PBF-30DL utilizing a traveling cross conveyor with tip down ends to minimize the drops into the box.
  • ECONOMY RAIL CAR LOADER
    Telescoping boom with 180 degree swing allows one person to quickly and efficiently fill railcars. Ideal for many other uses including bulk truck loading.
  • PORTABLE EVEN FLOW HOPPER
    50cwt. Portable Even Flow Hopper is a economical way to improve bulk loading/unloading, grading, and seed operations. Designed and built to last.
  • POTATO ONION UNLOADER
    The Tristeel Potato Onion Unloader is perfect for roundish produce, is economical, and very manueverable and portable. The large low profile dump area allows for a large volume throughput.
  • POTATO SCALE CONVEYOR
    The Tri-Steel Scale Conveyor equipped with Siemens belt scale controls provide accuracies never before achieved in the potato industry. This same conveyor weigh system can be applied to all products requiring continuous weighing from large or small batching applications, totes to truck or rail car involving continuous process control and inventory. Tri-Steel has designed a rugged conveyor system which minimizes all structural movement usually a problem with scales, we didn’t spare the iron on this one. Utilizing 20 degree trough rollers eliminates the need for side skirting/sideboards for material containment. Skirtboards have always been a problem for belt scales causing errors of friction not at all related to the weight of the product. These same skirtboards can restrict the forward movement of the product resulting in errors of product travel speed and the speed tachomoeter. Accuracies achieved of +/- .5% to .25%
  • STRAIGHT CONVEYOR
    Designed to be placed in a conveyor line to fill storage and/or bulk load out. Cupped belt design with (butt) style conveyor to butt up to another conveyor.
  • TELESCOPING CONVEYOR
    Designed to be placed in a conveyor line to fill storage and/or bulk load out. Cupped belt design with top conveyor set into bottom conveyor to minimize drop
  • TELESCOPING PLANTER FILLER / UTILITY PILER
    Telescoping boom with 180 degree swing allows one person to quickly and efficiently fill the planters. Planter filler and 8 row planter can be stationary and fill without moving either unit. Ideal for many other uses including bulk truck loading. Available in widths from 24" to 36".
  • UNLOADING STINGER CONVEYOR
    Designed to unload trucks into storage with the option of grading. Available in 30"- 42" widths by 20ft - 30ft long. Single or dual stingers available. Additional dirt conveyors optional.
