Destoning & Cleaning
These systems are best suited to large fruit and root vegetables. The process removes stones and clods prior to further preparation. In addition, the vertical system can provide elevation of the product along the process line. A recent system was manufactured to remove stones or contaminants from beetroot, view the system here: Beetroot Intake System.
The flume system can remove heavy contaminants such as glass, stones and nails from produce. It can also be located after blanching on the process line so that light pumice type stones are removed. This system is particularly effective for garden peas and pulses.
This process is used for pre & post washing for the removal of heavy contaminants & also more specifically the removal of any glass fragments. The system features an automated contaminant discharge and is suited to produce such as wheat, rice and pulses.
We have systems that can combine stone removal & elevation of produce within the food processing plant. This system elevates product, whilst at the same time removes stones & clods. Particularly suited to root crops and top fruit (e.g. apples).
