The Odyssey steam peeler is the newest addition to the TOMRA steam peeling portfolio. It’s the ideal cost-effective steam peeling solution for seasonal processing companies and emerging markets. It’s a high quality peeler that is specifically designed for seasonal processors of fruit and vegetables such as potatoes, red beets, pumpkins, celeriac, kohlrabi, papaya, mango and chilies.


“Our ambition is to become a global exporter to hundreds of markets and to do that we knew we needed to increase our capacity. The processing line was running smoothly but had reached its full capacity just as we saw rising demand for carrots and many of our other products", explains Peter Hegyi, project engineer at Fevita Hungary Zrt. That's when the company turned to TOMRA Sorting Food. Read what Fevita has to say about TOMRA's Odyssey steam peeler.


Based on the hugely successful Orbit and Eco steam peelers; the Odyssey steam peeler incorporates TOMRA’s control software, an enlarged steam peeling vessel and a weigh hopper to enable customers to process a wide range of vegetables and fruits efficiently. The vessel is bottle-shaped to enable a range of large volume fruit and vegetables to be peeled.

Using a simple steam supply and exhaust arrangement, the Odyssey steam peeler is low maintenance and has low operating costs whilst delivering highly efficient steam peeling performance; making it an ideal choice for many low cost processing environments such as those in emerging markets and customers which only produce for 4-6 months each year. 

The Odyssey steam peeler comes in a range of vessel sizes to achieve efficient processing production volumes of between 4000 kg/hour – 40 000 kg/hour (10 000 Lbs./hour – 100 000 Lbs./hour).


The user interface is made simple to ensure that customers can easily make changes to achieve the correct performance and production volumes. The Odyssey steam peeler is very easy to operate, it’s intuitive and available in multiple languages, enabling you to easily manage and adjust your peeling requirements.

The Odyssey steam peeler is the perfect peeling solution for customers who require a functional steam peeler that is easy to use, performs efficiently and has a low cost of ownership.
