Spiral washer SW-50

The Sormac SW-50 spiral washer was designed for washing cut vegetables that either float on water or that sink. The vegetables are washed intensively in the washbasin and then transported by a vibration chute where the vegetables are rinsed with clean water.

The excess washing water is drained to the pump tank through the perforated bottom of the vibration chute. The pump recirculates the water to the washbasin.

The swirling action and force of the water can be regulated separately through manually adjustable valves and nozzles to assure a proper washing operation and the desired dwell time of the produce. The switch cabinet has pushbuttons to activate and deactivate the flycatcher, pump, and vibration chute.

The machine is constructed entirely of stainless steel and plastic. All technical components such as the pump and vibration motors are mounted in stainless steel housings.
