The machine operates according to the known shuffle principle. Two up and down moving, step-shaped plates lift the carrots out off the infeed hopper. Next to this, the carrots fall in a V-conveyor.
The electrical components are in a handy, swivel-mounted control panel. Stepflow and V-conveyor are controlled by 2 coupled frequency converters so that the speed of both always is in a good relation. To achieve optimal singulation, it may be necessary to install a second slightly faster V-conveyor.
The stepflow singulator type PVW is suitable for singulating long-shaped root vegetables, especially carrots, salad cucumbers, and courgettes. The product needs to be rather straight and without leaves. The diameter is between 25 and 65 mm.
The capacity of the stepflow signulator is between 3.000 and 8.000 pieces per hour dependent on product length.
