Brush polisher BRR

The Sormac rotary brush polisher type BRR consists of 16 brush rollers forming an elongated drum. The drum and rollers rotate separately and have independently adjustable speed controls via a series of heavy-duty V-belts.

The drum is capable of running in two directions and has a spraying pipe within the drum. The spraying direction can be altered, depending on the filling and the running direction of the drum. Each roller has a double bearing arrangement and can be dismantled very quickly by way of a unique clamping device (loosening of expander mechanism at drive and discharge ends).

Access for cleaning and maintenance of the brush polisher is gained through large side doors on either side of the machine. The specially designed infeed prevents damage to delicate products. The retention time in the brush polisher is controlled by means of an adjustable turning valve at the end of the drum.

The motors are built into a separate and hygienic compartment above the peeling area.

  • "It is very unusual for such an advanced machine to work perfectly right from the start, it even beats our expectations.”

  • Mr. René Baetsen, Groentebedrijf Baetsen, The Netherlands
