  • The Wyma Modular Flat Bed System is a common integrated modular table for brushing, drying and sizing your produce. Removal of dirt is achievable with both wet or dry produce. Due to its gentle action, it is suitable for produce requiring a delicate brushing, washing, rinsing and/or substance application.

    Produce is transferred over the brushes by other produce pushing it from behind. The speed that produce is fed onto the Flat Bed Brusher dictates the time it spends on the table and the out-feed speed.

    Different brushes are available to suit produce types. The brushes can also be set to rotate at different speeds to allow a variety of cleaning options; from a gentle clean to a more vigorous wash. The rotating brushes dislodge dirt from the surface of fresh produce.

    Due to its modular design, the Flat Bed Brusher can be customised. If more brushing is needed, more modules can be added to the line. The Flat Bed Brusher can also be attached to Wyma’s other modular machines. These include: Absorbent Drying Rollers, Spool Sizer and Conveyor systems.

    The modules are available in the following sizes; ten, fifteen and twenty rows. Optional spray bars can be added above the brush rows, for chemical application. Produce needs to be manually cleared from the Flat Bed Brusher at the end of a run. This task can be automated by the addition of a wiper system (optional).

    Flat Bed Brushers are best suited to round produce. For large round produce (e.g. large potatoes, small pumpkins), the number of brush roller rows needs to be increased accordingly. This gives produce sufficient brushing time, for optimal results.

    For DRY brushing, the Flat Bed Brusher is suitable for:

    • Potatoes: Removes dry or loose dirt
    • Onions: Cleans dirt and removes loose shells
    • Capsicums/Peppers: Cleans around stems
    • Tomatoes: Leaves a shiny, polished finish
    • Fruit (round citrus and pip fruit): Removes dirt stuck in the skin pores

    For WET brushing, the Flat bed Brusher is suitable for:

    • Potatoes: ‘Finishing washer’ function. Polishes and cleans out pores
    • Capsicums/Peppers: Cleans around stems
    • Tomatoes: Leaves a shiny, polished finish
