3~5 T/H Tomato Sauce Production Line Automatic Water Saving Cost
Tomato processing line can produce from fresh tomato to different
kinds of the final product. The most popular is tomato paste
processing line, produce from fresh tomato to tomato paste with
aseptic bag in drum.
That includes: fresh tomato receiving system, washing system,
sorting system, extracting system, concentrating system,
sterilizing system, and aseptic filling system.
Then can get the tomato paste with aseptic bag in drum. And the
tomato paste in aseptic bag in drum can be further produced to
tomato ketchup, sauces, juice and filled in sachet, stand-up pouch,
metal can, PP container, bottle, gable top, etc.
FRESH TOMATO ⇒ CONVEYOR ⇒ WASHING ⇒ SORTING ⇒ CRUSHING ⇒ PREHEATING
⇒ PULPER & REFINER ⇒ EVAPORATING ⇒ STERILIZING ⇒ ASEPTIC
FILLING ⇒ STORAGE OR BLENDING
Before crushing, need to washing fresh tomato carefully. For
washing, we can use the bubble washing machine and spray washing
machine together. If the washing requirement is high, can add more
stages of washing. Also for better cleaning effect, we can add
ultrasonic cleaning and ozone cleaning.
After washing, the surface of the tomato is clean, we can check the
situation of all the tomatoes by labor. With the roller conveyor,
we can see every sides of the tomato. And pick out the bad tomatoes
The crusher is running at a high speed of 1470 r/min to crush fresh
tomatoes to make sure all the tomatoes are fully crushed.
The pre-heater is used to heat the product after the crusher, the
temperature is adjustable, normally from 45℃ to 85℃. This
processing step would help to higher the juice rate for the next
step, and also can protect the color and testing for final tomato
5. Pulper and refiner
This machine is also running at the speed of 1470 r/min, it causes
the centrifugal force and the product will go through the screen,
which helps to refine the product. And normally we use double stage
of pulper and refiner, the screen of each stage is different, for
the first stage the screen would be bigger, and for the second
stage the screen would be smaller.
The vacuum Evaporator is used for concentrating the tomato paste
under vacuum and low temperature. Here we are using Forced
Circulation Vacuum Evaporator. Because it’s under vacuum and low
temperature, so the test and nutrients would be protected as much
as possible. And right now we get the tomato paste, normally the
Brix is 28-30 and 36-38.
For tomato paste, we use tube in tube type sterilizer for
sterilizing. The sterilizing temperature and holding time is
adjustable. with this machine, we will heat the tomato paste to a
very high temperature around 115℃ holding it for 30s and then
cooling to ambient temperature immediately. This way also can
protect the test and nutrients of tomato paste as much as possible.
8. Aseptic Filling
The aseptic filling machine works together with the tube in tube
type sterilizer. It’s a closed cycle. Before production, the cycle
will be fully sterilized to make sure the aseptic environment. And
the filling cavity is also protected by steam to make sure the
filling environment is also aseptic.
9. Storage or go to blend
The tomato processing line from Shanghai Gofun machinery company is

safety quality control for final product, safety control for
- The capacity of fresh tomato can be customized from 60 Ton/D to
