2410 FLOTATION WASH SYSTEM

The latest Heinzen insect removal wash system, new & improved for foreign material removal.

Features
Heinzen’s flotation wash system contains a wa-ter-agitated flume tank. By maintaining a weir balance and using a pair of rotating perforated drums, product is gently submerged allowing for removal of insects and undesirable parti-cles. Parabolic screens capture debris. Typi-cal use is with products such as spinach, spring mix and romaine. System can be de-signed to discharge product onto a dewatering conveyor or shaker. The system is designed as a modular section to drop into existing wash lines.
