Wyma’s Absorbent Drying Rollers remove excess surface moisture from produce. This reduces risk of bacterial growth and produce degradation during storage, transport and packaging, which will maximise produce shelf-life.
An Absorbent Drying Roller is made up of rows of sponge or felt rollers to absorb moisture from produce surface. There are brush rows at the in-feed end to flick off excess moisture and provide soft entry for produce. A pintle roller at the out-feed end protects sponges from damage as produce exits. The number of brush, sponge/felt or pintle rows is customised to suit your needs.
Produce moves along the bed as other produce pushes it forward, so the in-feed speed determines the time produce is on the bed. A roll-out produce clearing device can be fitted to clear produce at the end of a run. A unique squeezing mechanism easily removes water from drying rollers to optimise performance.
The drive system has a robust, interlaced toothed belt drive which means it has less drive motors compared to other machines on the market.
Absorbent Drying Rollers can be integrated into a Wyma Flat Bed System. These multi-purpose Flat Bed Systems eliminate the need to transfer produce between processes, saving you time and money. You can integrate brushing, drying, rinsing and/or liquid application.
Our Flat Bed Systems are modular and have three standard width options. Individual modules have two length options and multiple modules can be combined to suit your site. This means your produce gets optimal contact time on the bed surface.
