Cyclone Basket

The Cyclone has been developed in partnership with Intercrate for Heinzen’s SD50LT Spin Dryer with molded-in holes, strength, ergonomic improvements and features metal detectable FDA material.

Features

  • Tough: Built using impact-modified material. Extra thick sections on the top rim, bottom lip, and handles.
  • Ergonomic: Hand-holds are higher and closer together than previous models, extreme drainage in base for rapid water flow, weight reduction grab points on underside, smooth exterior, and shoulder-friendly bottom edge for overhead carry are all now ergonomic improvements for your workers.
  • Rapid drainage: More open area with molded-in holes means more productive use of your machinery and improved draining, as well as drier product.
  • Molded-In Holes: The Cyclone has 340 bottom and 642 side molded-in holes for a total of 982 holes that do not need to be drilled and deburred by your crew. Molded-in holes offer your quality program more consistency than hand drilled holes.
  • Traceable: Proven metal detection technology makes plastic debris detectable.
  • Color: Current metal detecting options are white, blue, yellow, green, and red.
  • Sanitation: The Cyclone can be steam cleaned or cleaned with hot water (unlike polyethylene).

Specifications

  • 13 layers stacked empty—4 stacks/pallet
  • 52/pallet—93” high on pallet
  • Nesting increment: 5”
  • Pure white available for non-metal detecting only

2532 Ab200 Spin Dryer

Introducing the AB200 Centrifugal Spin Dryer, setting the Gold Standard in Auto Batch Drying.

Features

The AB200 is a fully automatic batch system designed for high volume processing. Designed with an emphasis on simple, robust, sanitary construction, the AB200 can process over 9,000 lbs/hr (Spring Mix or Baby Spinach) or 20,000 lbs/hr (Iceberg Lettuce) depending on cycle time and infeed support equipment.

Product transferred into the AB200 is cushioned by a layer of clean laminar airflow, and discharged after drying with the assistance of high volume, low pressure clean air.

A hollow perforated stainless steel drum is designed to provide clean, unobstructed loading and unloading with-out spokes or axles in the product zone.

Triple-sealed oil bath tapered roller bearings provide long life and dependability. The double redundancy offered by a dual motor drive serves as a contingency against downtime. Each drive can operate alone for continued production in the unlikely event of a motor malfunction. A ribbed V-belt drive simplifies and reduces maintenance.

All dryer and process line control parameters can be accessed through simple touch screen interface that can store presets for various products.
