Spiral washer SW
New product


The Sormac SW-50 spiral washer was designed for washing cut vegetables that either float on water or that sink. The vegetables are washed intensively in the washbasin and then transported by a vibration chute or outfeed belt where the vegetables are rinsed with clean water.

The washing water is drained to the pump tank through the perforated bottom of the vibration chute. The pump recirculates the water to the washbasin.

The swirling action and force of the water can be regulated separately through manually adjustable valves and nozzles to assure a perfect washing operation and the desired dwell time of the produce. The switch cabinet has pushbuttons to activate and deactivate the flycatcher, pump and vibration chute.

The machine is constructed entirely of stainless steel and some plastic parts. Also the vibration motors are executed in stainless steel.
