The main criteria that the facility had to maintain was that it was to gently handle the crop at a capacity up to 35tph. The second criteria was that the machinery was capable of washing potatoes grown on various soil type from sand to clay giving a clean finished product.
The washer featured our supa-flume stone and clod removal system,1200mm diameter pintle lined self clean barrel with internal high volume spray bar and rotary brush, automatic sludge extraction and a system to take out any floating debris such as wood or plastic. Manual inspection is carried out finally prior to loading in to trucks for delivery to the crisp factory.
