Pumpkin Brusher

Wyma’s Pumpkin Brusher uses long bristle brushes to wash soil, clods and light scale from pumpkins and squash without skin damage.

Description

Our Pumpkin Brusher is great for cleaning large, near-round produce without fear of damaging produce skin. Using a Pumpkin Brusher reduces manual labour costs and improves the accuracy of grading/sizing equipment.

There are two long rows of brushes (on brush shafts) along the length of the machine. Each brush shaft has its own geared motor so each shaft can be controlled individually. This means brushing action can be set to suit your needs. One brush shaft is higher than the other so pumpkins are in constant contact with the bristles for a gentle and consistent clean.

Machine angle can be adjusted to control the speed that produce moves through the Pumpkin Brusher.

Water spray bars inside the machine rinse produce and also allow chemical application.

An optional water tank allows waste water to be recycled
