Technical parameters


This set of equipment for vapor purification of root crops is a complete line to fulfill functions from the supply of root crops for washing to the inspection sorting of the product that has passed the steam cleaning. The output capacity is determined by the required final performance and can range from 500kg / hour to 20000kg / hour.

Main features and advantages of the line:

— the ability to work at pressures up to 20 bar;

— minimal loss of the product during its purification;

— quality vapor treatment of the product and separation of the product and condensate, cause the vapor cleaning boiler has two separated reservoirs (one inside the other) and an inner reservoir made of stainless perforated metal;

— saving vapon consumption due to its high-quality and rapid distribution in the volume of the boiler for better processing the product (from the all sides) and reducing the time of steam exposure;

— effective discharge of the vapor with the rapid lowering of the pressure in the boiler;

— low operating cost is ensured by the rational design of reducing the loss of the raw materials and additional equipment;

— convenient washing and maintenance;

— low consumption of oxygen for waste oxidation during water treatment.

This line includes follow equipment and mechanisms:

  1. Hydraulic lifting and turn over device.
  2. Receiving conveyor for feeding the product in to collecting hopper (for dry collector only), output capacity ≥10tons/hour.
  3. Collector with the conveyor.
  4. Universal combined washing machine with stone separator.
  5. The vapor washing machine includes:
  • Inclined conveyor and elevator
  • Collector with the filler equipped with load cell
  • Steam cleaning boiler
  • Steam system
  • Pneumatic system
  • Electric cabinet with automatic control system
  • Screw output conveyor
  • Brushing washing machine
  1. Inspection roller conveyor.
  2. Optic sorting machine.
