Tomato is used in the processing industry for a wide range of derivatives: juice, purées, concentrates, peeled, pulp and diced. The collection, transport and transfer of the raw material are fundamental links in the industrial transformation of the tomato. The factories receive the raw material in bins that are overturned by tipping bins, and the tomato falls into tanks filled
with water. The first phase includes washing and sorting, essential operations to eliminate foreign substances (bodies) and unsuitable fruit. For the preparation of pureed and concentrated juices, it is necessary to grind the fruits, separate the seeds and skins and then, with the exclusion of the juices, the more or less partial elimination of the constitution water.
Unlike whole peeled tomatoes, after peeling the product is diced (diced), drained and packaged.
