Salad washer PULSTAR

The PULSTAR salad washer has an integrated air injection system, enabling a thorough cleaning action without damaging the product. The quantity of air can be adjusted continuously so that stronger or softer turbulence in the washing water can be achieved. The air injection system is divided into two sections, which operate alternatively. This alternating operation of the sections creates a peristaltic movement of the product through the washer.

The variable water flow of the frequency driven circulation pump in combination with the air injection switch/change frequency ensures

that the product is transported through the washer and that the dwell time in the washer can be controlled accurately.

Water and product can be separated on an outfeed conveyor (optional) on the outfeed side. The water is passed through an overflow tank and then flows to the pump tank. Loose particles are filtered out of the water using a static sieve. The outfeed belt can optionally be configured as a dewatering conveyor. This has one or more beaters and vacuum stations.

Several configurations are available.

  • "Sormac was just what we needed. Their strong point is that they have a simple but effective tailor-made solution for every problem. We’ve been able to increase both our production capacity and our quality levels – to our great delight and that of our customers.”

  • Mr. Humberto Salvador, Estevão Luis Salvador Lda.

Product specification

PULSTAR salad washers are suitable for washing all kinds of leafy vegetables that float in water.


The capacity of the PULSTAR salad washer is depending on product type and desired dwell time.

Capacities up to 8,800 lbs per hour can be reached.



Peristaltic system

The product is immersed and cleaned thoroughly without mechanical contact. The peristaltic system also ensures a controlled dwell time.

Laminar water flow

Effectively separates sand particles from the product. The conical design of the washer collects and removes the soiling centrally.

Small particle separator

The combination of the adjustable air injection system and separator removes insects and other small floating particles from the product flow.

Water bypass

Creates a higher resistance at the outfeed, allowing a longer dwell time in the washer.
