Husker - Lightly Processed Sweet Corn (Frozen, Canned &/or Jarred)

Frozen and canned sweet corn runs just a little differently. Your customers are looking for kernels that are aesthetically pleasing, yet maintain their texture and taste once in their final format. Our highly processed husker is made specifically to deliver.

Product Description

Our lightly processed sweet corn huskers are configured specifically for frozen and/or canned applications. We know how demanding your customers are on the final aesthetic, texture and taste of your output sweet corn kernels. Because of that, our machines are properly gentle on the product they handle.

The complete husking system consists of three machines working in harmony.

  • First, the metering conveyor regulates speed from infeed into the husking functions
  • After that,  the vibratory shaker feeder distributes and aligns the cobs
  • Finally, the husker itself efficiently and gently removes the husk and corn silk from the cobs without damaging the kernels

The capacities and inclusion of these and ancillary equipment are always recommended by our engineers, based on your throughput and output requirements. Our goal is to help you achieve high levels of operational efficiency by deploying equipment, engineering and other technologies that are the right fit for you.

The counter-rotating roller shafts and roller style(s) are suggested based on your products. There can be multiple styles recommended on each roller shaft assembly, based on typical size of the cobs, how tight the husk tends to be, and general conditions of crops based on your or your growers’ soil types and locations. The rows are divided by oscillating panels to align cobs and prevent jamming.

While designed for sweet corn, there are configuration options for other crops. They can be set up to de-leaf oranges and other robust citrus fruits, top onions, de-sprout and de-vine some potatoes and top and tail radishes. They can also pre-clean certain root vegetables, such as carrots, as well as apples.
