  • The 1T Wyma Wet Hopper provides a gentle reception and storage system for potatoes, carrots, parsnips and other produce requiring delicate handling. It has been purpose-built primarily for growers and packers manually loading bags and wishing to achieve an even-flow for the rest of their packing line. Loading via bin tipping is also possible.

    This wet reception system also act as a soaking facility softening soil on the carrots, potatoes or parsnips and making it easier to remove via the air agitation system (optional). Debris is accumulated at the bottom of the hopper and can be removed at regular intervals via a manual or an automatic purge valve.

    Produce exit via an elevator built with 75mm cleats and a perforated PVC belt to remove excess water.

    The nominal capacity of this wet receiving hopper is limited to 1T.
