Sormac Now Offers the SW-80 Spiral Washer for Higher Capacities
Sormac recently launched a new spiral washer type SW-80 for capacities of up to 3,000 kg/h. Based on the Sormac SW-50 machine, the SW-80 can wash various sliced (non-)floating vegetables like potatoes, but also carrots, onions, cabbage or iceberg salad.
The product is washed intensively in the wash tank of the SW-80, which optionally can be equipped with air injection for extra agitation. A fly catcher removes insects and small pieces and submerges the vegetables. Then the product is transferred onto an outfeed shaker, where it is rinsed with fresh water.
For more delicate products, the washer can be equipped with a conveyor. Water is captured in the collection tank and filtered by a rotary drum sieve.
This filtered water is then recirculated back into the washer by a pump. The swirling action and force of the water can be regulated separately through adjustable valves and nozzles, to assure a proper washing operation and the required dwell time of each product.
The SW-80 features a control panel with a touchscreen that displays water temperature and the possibility to de(activate) various machine components.
