  • Wyma’s Flat Bed Brushers remove surface dirt from round produce. Due to its gentle action, the Flat Bed Brusher is suitable for delicate produce. Produce can be wet or dry.

    A Flat Bed Brusher is made up of rows of brush rollers for removing dirt. The type of brushes used and the number of rows on the bed are customised to suit your needs.

    The drive system has a robust, interlaced toothed belt drive which means it has less drive motors compared to other machines on the market.

    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.

    Spray bars can be fitted to rinse produce with water or apply liquid to produce surface.

    A Flat Bed Brusher 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.
