Pulsemaster has sold a 100kW Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) system to a French fry processor, capable of handling up to 132,000 lbs (60 tons) of potatoes per hour.

Pulsemaster, a global leader in Pulsed Electric Field systems for potato processing, announces its agreement to sell a 100kW Pulsed Electric Field system to a major producer of high-quality French fries and potato specialties.

Thomas Rohe, Engineering Director of Pulsemaster, stated, “We are extremely pleased that a European customer with very high standards and a global reputation has agreed to purchase Pulsemaster’s PEF system for their new French fries processing line, which has an input capacity of up to 60 tons per hour (132,000 lbs per hour).”
