Contaminants can come in many forms making removal difficult, especially where a product is not to be washed. AMBiT’s approach is to provide a combination of air and mechanical separation.
The units can be combined with an extraction system for lighter contaminants or an air cannon for larger, heavier ones. Produce is continually shaken along a mesh shaker belt, allowing insects, stones and small items to fall through to waste collecting conveyors or crates.
The Shaker Conveyor is the perfect choice when handling dry, delicate products that you do not want to pass through water. A particularly difficult product is Parsley, especially when it needs to processed at 5-6,000 kilos per hour. More details of a line we built to remove foreign bodies from parsley are available here: Foreign Body Removal Case Study
Quality improvements are continually being sought and AMBiT combine air and mechanical separation to ensure products meet the highest possible quality output.
