Washing tank with elevator
The washing tank with elevator, which is entirely made of stainless steel except for the elevator belt, is used for effectively washing different types of fruit and vegetables. The unit is made up of:
- Washing tank: The product is washed by means of the forced turbulent water flow and by the air that is sent from a compressor on the bottom of the tank.
- Elevator: The modular elevator conveys products from the washing tank to the following machine going through a series of nozzles that rinse products while going back up; thanks to the pierced conveyor belt, products are drained for the first time.
The machine size depends on the product to be processed and on the requested hourly production. The machine has been built in order to facilitate cleaning, inspection and maintenance.
