Wet Hopper

Produce can be quickly tipped into the water-filled Wet Hopper without fear of damage. Incoming produce can be clean or dirty.

Description

Our Wet Hopper allows produce to be quickly tipped into a water filler tank without fear of damage. Incoming produce can be dirty, clean or semi-clean.

Produce gently travels along on a web conveyor toward an out-feed elevator. As it travels, fine sand and dirt fall through the web belt into collection hoppers in the base. Dump valves regularly clear debris build-up.

An air agitation system can be fitted so produce rubs gently against other produce, helping remove dirt.

An out-feed elevator lifts produce out of the water and delivers it to the next stage in your line. Spray bars can be fitted for a final rinse.
