Wet Hopper

Wyma’s Wet Hopper is a cost effective, multi-purpose, pre-washing system, designed to remove excess mud, dirt and sand from produce without causing damage.

General Information:
The Wet Hopper C-Series, Wyma's flagship wet hopper, sets a new standard for versatile produce processing. This multi-purpose system is essential in effective produce wash lines, accommodating various root vegetables like carrots, potatoes, parsnips, and more.

Key Features:
Key features include a pre-wash soak with air agitation to soften soil, surge storage for inconsistent product flows, gentle produce entry, dirt collection, and precise line flow control. Produce enters through options like Tipper, Conveyor, or Stone Remover and moves on an internal web conveyor. Built-in air agitation pre-cleans the produce, reducing post-hopper cleaning effort.

Efficient Produce Exit:
Produce exits via the integrated gooseneck elevator, maintaining a steady flow rate irrespective of hopper depth, thanks to precise control. An anti-rollback system ensures reliability.

Soil and Debris Handling:
Soil and debris collect in hoppers under the floor conveyor, periodically discharged via drain valves. Alternatively, continuous augers can replace collection hoppers for efficient slurry removal.

Automation and Customization:
The Wet Hopper boasts automation controls, such as torque sensing and customizable outfeed elevator lengths.

Durability and Additional Features:
Its sturdy stainless steel construction requires minimal maintenance. Additional features like debris removal, clean water rinse, and self-cleaning can be integrated to suit specific processing needs.
