This farm is a global producer of potatoes. They utilize MacroBins in the harvesting of their crops and needed to clean and sanitize these MacroBins to prevent food-borne bacteria contamination.
They needed a machine that could clean 1,000 MacroBins (with ventilation) per 8-hour day. This stainless steel conveyor washer has a 48-inch wide belt to accommodate these large bins and was designed with three stages: a recirculated heated wash stage to sanitize at 140° F, a fresh rinse stage with optional heat if needed, and a short blow-off stage.
The system has a working height of 32-inches and load/unload heights of 40-inches. The flat-wire conveyor belt has a variable frequency drive and 600 gallons tank. Along with filters on the wash and rinse, the machine is also equipped with marine clean-out doors for easy maintenance, electronic eyes to sense parts and control the unload end, and a Dema valve to automatically control the introduction of detergent.
