stainless steel, in-stock NEW...


A versatile continuous brush washer for scrubbing ROOT CROPS. Offered here with brushes as a continuous four roll brush-washing scrubbing and/or pickle washing machine. It can also be fitted with any combination of brushes and/or abrasive rolls for peeling, brush washing, scrubbing, or finishing (e.g. in combination with another peeler, scrubber, or steam peeler) of fruits and vegetables such as potatoes, beets, carrots, onions, cucumbers, pickles, apples, oranges and other raw fresh produce items


Raw product is continuously fed to the brush-washing / peeling chamber and subjected to the spinning rolls (abrasive and/or brushes as the case may be). It is important that a sufficient amount of product be kept in the peeling chamber during operation for best results. Lubricating and rinsing action are provided in the chamber by overhead sprays, while the flow of product through the machine is regulated both by a weighted discharge door, and the inclination of the machine. The water spray, rotating brushes and friction of the products rubbing against each other tumble and turn the product so that it is thoroughly scrubbed from every conceivable angle.
