Recently, Sormac launched the spiral washer type SW-80 for capacities up to 3,000 kg/hr. Based on the successful Sormac SW-50, the SW-80 can wash sliced various (non-)floating vegetables such as ice berg, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli and many more.
Product is washed intensively in the wash tank, which optionally can be equipped with an air injection for extra agitation. A fly catcher removes insects and small pieces and submerges the product. Then product is transferred onto an outfeed shaker, where product is rinsed with fresh water. For delicate products, the washer can be equipped with a conveyor. Water is captured in the collection tank and filtered by a rotary drum sieve.
This filtered water is then recirculated back into the washer by a pump. The swirling action and force of the water can be regulated separately through adjustable valves and nozzles, to assure a proper washing operation and the required dwell time of each product.
The control panel features a touchscreen that displays water temperature and the possibility to (de)activate various machine components.
