• High throughput with a small footprint
  • High reliability with low maintenance
  • Efficient separation of water and dirt
  • Fresh water cleaning if needed

The elevator is used in reception lines to transport pome fruit in a vertical direction. It is especially suited to overcome large differences in height, i.e. between flushing channels or sorting and grinding systems. In addition, the fruit will be cleaned in the lower part of the elevator.

The fruit is fed to the elevator opening via a conveying element. The sump is filled with water to assure careful handling of the fruit and, at the same time, to remove attached dirt. The fruits are caught by the screw, transported vertically and discharged at the elevator head to the next unit. Water from the sump which has been dragged along is effectively separated from the fruits by centrifugal force and gravity and discharged through slotted separators. The separators are periodically manually cleaned from adhering grass and leaves.

The screw drive with three-phase-motor and V-belt is mounted at the elevator head. The separators are secured with proximity switches.
