This European standard specifies the safety and hygiene requirements for the design and manufacture of vegetable peelers used in the commercial and institutional catering industry, and in food shops. The machines concerned by this standard are designed to peel different sorts of vegetables and tubers such as potatoes, carrots, salsify, turnips, celery and onions. The standard is limited to machines where the maximum capacity is 50 kg. The machines are not intended to be moved during operation. The rotating plate mixes the product under appropriate conditions so that the desired operation is carried out on the entire load. This operation can be: - the abrading of the surface of the vegetable or tuber; - the cutting of fine particles of skin if the fitting is of the blade-type; - grating, an operation which is similar to abrading; - scraping or cleaning with a brush, rubber coating or cast iron surface. Machines subject to this standard use water circulation to carry waste to the waste outlet. The underside of the plate is sometimes designed with raised parts which speed up the discharge of the waste water. This European standard applies when such machines are used to operate under the intended conditions of use as defined in 3.12 of EN 292-1:1991 and stated in the instruction handbook (see 7.1), including cleaning, removal of food blockages and loading, and installation, maintenance, and disposal of wastes. Machines covered by this standard are not intended to be cleaned by high pressure water jets. This European standard does not apply to domestic machines. Vegetable peelers have nothing in common with meat derinding machines (which are dealt with in prEN 12355), both from their design and use standpoint. This European standard covers significant hazards at such machines, as identified by risk assessment (see EN 1050), which are listed in clause 4 of this standard. Noise is not considered to be a significant hazard for vegetable peelers. This does not mean that the manufacturer of the machine is absolved from reducing noise and making a noise declaration. This European standard does not deal with the vibrations hazard. This European standard applies primarily to machines which are manufactured after its date of issue. It has been assumed in preparing this standard that the vegetables to be processed have no foreign bodies, e.g. stones.
