Tolsma-Grisnich has developed an intelligent dry soil removal installation for the 24/7 removal of soil, haulm and other inherent non-product elements from agricultural produce. The installation has an hourly output of 80 tons of potatoes and fits in perfectly with the processing line of, for example, a French fries plant. Cleaning capacity, product-friendliness, intelligent control and minimal maintenance requirements are key design elements.
The installation includes a combination of cleaning techniques:
- Axial roller cleaner featuring a bypass
- Roller cleaner
- Roller conveyor
- Hedgehog conveyor
- Discharge conveyor for soil and produce.
All roller and conveyor speeds are adjustable on a touch screen, as are the slopes of the axial and other roller cleaners. Settings can be saved so that the entire machine can be adjusted to a batch with different characteristics at the touch of a button. The major benefit of this is that stoppages of the installation are kept to a minimum.
