The singulation system positions the carrots in the trays. These trays then pass over the aligning belts, which are mounted on the underside of the machine. The aligning belts transport the carrots firstly to the left and then to the right, where they are topped or tailed depending on orientation.
Type S: carrot diameter 1″ to 2 1/8″
Type L: carrot diameter 1 1/2″ to 3 11/32″
Depending on the execution of the machine, it is possible to cut the carrots into pre-set pieces of minimal 1 1/2″ (standard 2″). These knives can optionally be executed in such a way that, by pushing a button, they automatically retract.
The machine is designed for easy maintenance and cleaning /sanitation and is equipped with threaded spindle motors which facilitates the lowering of the complete transport tray section in such a way as to give complete access to all internal aligning belts and cutting drive sections.
The WOA-3 processes carrots with a maximum length of 14” (min. 7”). The WOA-4 processes carrots with a maximum length of 10” (min. 5”). For a good working, the carrot foliage and stones have to be removed.
The capacity is adjustable and depends on the diameter, quality and weight of the carrots and is approx. 2,200 – 11,000 lbs per hour.
In numbers of carrots the capacity with a filling degree of 70% will be:
Singulation belt WOA-3
Type S max. 13.860 pcs/h.
Type L max. 12.500 pcs/h.
Singulation belt WOA-4
