Accurate sizing and handling are central to maintaining the quality and marketability of your produce. For carrots, potatoes and onions, sizing is especially important. With their non-uniform shape and variable textures, sizing root vegetables accurately and cost-effectively can be a challenge. Wyma’s Lift Roller Sizer has been specifically designed to meet the needs of these produce types, with customised configurations available for specific needs, including pre-sizing.
Wyma’s Lift Roller Sizer is a mature and proven system, able to handle a range of throughputs from 10 to 40t/hr. But that hasn’t stopped it from being routinely reviewed and improved, as Peter Newstead, Wyma’s Lead Design Engineer notes:
“We know how important sizing is (to a processing line), as it’s where high-value produce can be identified and separated. But equally, it is an area where we focus on to reduce waste and ultimately increase our customers’ output.”
As part of recent improvements, Wyma’s latest Lift Roller Sizer is constructed with a strong food safety focus. Produce contact points are made of stainless steel or food-grade plastic. This is a trend you will see throughout Wyma’s range, as food safety becomes a mandatory requirement for many of our customers.
Stainless steel construction is safer and will also drive further efficiencies for operators. Machines are easier to clean and require less maintenance. The result is an extended operational life when compared to a mild steel alternative. Quality componentry and unique roller driven design further reduces operating costs while allowing operators to maximise produce output.
Wyma’s market-leading Lift Roller Sizer delivers superior output, is clean to run, easy to maintain and simple to operate. It is the most cost-effective solution for processors looking for a high volume, reliable and clean solution.
If it’s worth growing, it’s worth handling with Wyma.
