Washing and drying fresh produce

The Freshline Direct Stream system is an integrated multi-stage wash and automatic drying system for fresh-cut processors. The system uses automation and process control to maximise line efficiencies and produce a higher standard of product quality.

Suitable for processors of fresh-cut products at volumes from 450 to over 9000 kg/h, the modular system is suitable for all types of fresh-cut products.

With Freshline Direct Stream, fresh-cut product is metered through the wash/dry system in a totally regulated manner. Fast streaming ensures product is layered evenly throughout the entire system, providing consistent wash pressure and dryness levels, with no requirement for staging or storage of wet product. This improves product quality compared with traditional systems, which typically operate with over-filled hoppers and suffer the 'hay-ball effect' of product on transfer and elevating belts.

Floor space and maintenance costs are reduced with the Freshline Direct Stream system, as there are fewer components and moving parts. The Freshline Automatic Dryer becomes the control centre of the process line, featuring a single point PLC and touch screen control panel to access information such as water temperatures, line throughput, and water usage. The system is completely automated, thereby eliminating operator intervention and reducing labour costs.
