Horizontal Hedgehog

Wyma’s Horizontal Hedgehog removes dirt, roots and debris from potatoes.

 

Description

Our Horizontal Hedgehog removes dirt, roots and other debris from potatoes.

It has a belt with rubber pintles. Potatoes and debris are fed onto the belt. Potatoes are carried forward and directed to the outfeed chute by the powered sweep roller. Debris falls through the pintles to the base of the belt. It is carried under the sweep roller to the waste chute at the end of the machine.

You can adjust the gap between the powered sweep roller and the belt to control the size of the debris that will be removed from produce flow.

The powered sweep roller has a weight balancing mechanism to prevent the roller from applying too much pressure on the belt. This prevents debris from getting lodged in the belt.
