Barrel Washer LZ Range

  • The Wyma Barrel Washer LZ Range effectively and gently washes produce to remove dirt and small stones. With the largest barrel diameter of all the Wyma Barrel Washers, this LZ Range is specifically designed to handle a large volume of produce. The auger blades provide an increased degree of produce churning to facilitate vigorous cleaning.

    Located in a high position (above the tank rim), the in-feed chute allows maximum filling of the barrel with produce. The out-feed gate has a submersible hub to allow for higher water levels when the barrel is full with produce. The transfer lagoon and elevator at 35° inclination provides improved control of produce flow.

    For optimal washing results, the Barrel Washer is usually followed in a processing line by a Wyma Vege-Polisher™.

    • Three models available to meet capacity requirements of up to 45 t/hr (99,000 lb/hr).
    • Drive frame supported on adjustable mounts to alter drum height. Change belt without removing barrel.
    • Water level sensor (with or without control) interconnects with water in-feed and dump valves. Optional manual winder with hose loop overflow*.
    • Water flow push system draws water from behind the elevator and improves produce flow onto the elevator belt*.
    • Wash jets on elevator to rinse produce with clean water on exit*.
    • Destoner connection port for water integration and for support integration*
    • Drive with single motor/gearbox and connection shaft between two drive pulleys. Stainless steel shaft for durability.
    • Heavy duty spherical roller bearings, in an easy to maintain arrangement, provide long life with minimal maintenance.
    • Alignment rollers operate against V-belt (radial alignment) and between the flanges of the belt channel (axial alignment), guarding the rollers against dirt.
    • Greasable and durable alignment rollers are positioned above the tank rim for easy access and maintenance.
    • 1450mm barrel diameter to handle large produce volumes.
    • Barrel perforations of high density 30mm pitch and 11mm diameter for improved water flow and dirt removal. Slot options also available up to 12mm x 80mm*.
    • Transfer lagoon isolates the elevator loading process for improved flow control. Surge barrier optional.
    • Elevator at 35° inclination with web belt and rubber flights to reduce produce slipping back down the elevator.
    • Tank floor has a minimum 35° angle toward dump ports. Tank is divided in 1500mm sections.
    • In-feed chute is integrated and set high (above tank rim line) allowing maximum filling of the drum with produce. Shaped chute entry for maximum produce fill potential. Chute angle at 30° into barrel cavity.
    • Auger blades provide a large degree of churning to facilitate vigorous cleaning. Interchangeable blades to select degree of churning (120 - 200mm wide).
    • Stainless steel out-feed gate with robust, adjustable mounting system to allow best alignment between gate, drum and frame panels. Hub can operate below water level.
    • Out-feed gate has easily adjustable sweep angle to minimise catch points.
    • Stainless steel top and side covers with perforated inserts to view/monitor operations and for hazard protection.
    • Access hatches improve access under barrel.
    • Tank cleaning pipes for thorough tank clean-out after draining the barrel*.
    • Lower lift height to remove/replace the drum.
    • Knife gate dump valves upgrade from standard butterfly for easy waste removal*.
    • Greasing access for the main barrel carrier bearings at tank rim level*.
    • Sub-frame for support at a height above floor level (below floor level sludge collection is necessary without a sub-frame)*.
