Innovator Profile

For Inquiry :


The machine is used to peel garlic cloves uniformly. The machine helps to achieve greater productivity, is energy efficient and labour saving and reduces the drudgery in the slow laborious manual process of peeling garlic.

The garlic is fed into the peeling chamber through the inlet chute. Power is transmitted from the two HP motor shafts through V-belts. The pulley, fitted on the shaft, rotates the small blower. Pressurized air from the small blower removes the excess moisture from the garlic on the way to the peeling chamber. The cloves entering the peeling chamber are pushed by the pressurized air from the big blower to the rotating blade. The rotating blades hit the garlic cloves towards the serrated wall of the peeling chamber and there these get peeled. At the same time, the pressurized air from the big blower pushes out the dust and the skin of the garlic cloves through the exhaust pipe. The peeled garlic cloves from the peeling chamber are collected through the outlet by gravity.

Innovator has developed garlic-peeling machine, which peels garlic while maintaining the original property. It is fully automated machine, made from food grade quality material. It is designed for peeling garlic in bulk quantity, is energy efficient, and saves labour. It economizes operating cost and removes capacity constraints caused by shortage of human labourers in peak seasons for pickle industry. The peeling effectiveness is very high at about 90% while the damage to the peeled garlic is very low at about 2%. This machine is maintenance free and requires only labor during operation to feed the garlic.

Garlic has been a part of Indian culture for a long time and enjoys a prominent place in cooking and medicine. Garlic oil is believed to have medicinal qualities and is duly recognized in Indian medicine systems such as Ayurveda and Siddha. Not all parts of the garlic are edible. The garlic has to be broken into cloves and then the skin has to be peeled before consumption. This work is highly labor intensive and consumes a lot of time. This has put a major constraint for the industries to scale up their capacity to process garlic. High labor cost increases the running cost for industries.
