Basket Washer

The Dodman Basket Washer fully immerses the basket of product in a cold water dosed solution for a varied dwell time (1 – 6 minutes). The Basket Washer is suitable for diced vegetables such as potatoes, carrots, swedes and spring onions. Baskets are typically up to 1000 mm diameter. Baskets filled with vegetables are hand fed onto a moving stainless-steel chain belt. The belt is fitted with stainless steel slats to assist the containers when elevating and discharging.

The Washer includes a side tank for a reservoir allowing topping up with chemical as required. A pump on the side of the Washer takes the dosed water from the tank and pumps water through sparge pipes fitted between the belt. Water overflows back into the tank for recharging. A rotary drum fitted with a perforated mesh screens the water during the washing process. Washed product in the baskets discharges onto a small section of gravity roller conveyor section.
