On a rotating sieve, coarse parts are removed from the washing water and the water then flows into the pump tank, after which the water is pumped back to the infeed side of the flume. The calm laminar flow also makes the flume excellently suitable for separating small stones, clay granules and sand particles from the product.
Optionally the flume may also be provided with multiple air injection systems.
The washing flume type WF-60 is used for all types of leafy vegetables.
The washing flume is used for capacities from 300 to 3,500 kg per hour, depending on product type and dwell time.
Iceberg lettuce max. 3,500 kg/h.
Spinach max. 2,500 kg/h.
Baby leaf max. 2,000 kg/h.
