FMT supplies a wide range of flotation washing machines for excellent washing quality. Models available with a capacity ranging from 150 kg to 10 tons/h. The machines can be equipped with a self-cleaning rotary filter, a removal system for floating particles (insects) and a heat exchanger for temperature control. FMT also provides customisation to customer requirements.
The FMT flotation washer, type FW, has an integrated air injection system, enabling a thorough cleaning action without damaging the product.
The in-feed side of the washer is provided with water jets, which assist in the separation of the product and flume it towards the Jacuzzi section. The adjustable water flow ensures that the dwell time within the washer can be accurately programmed.
The out-feed of the washer can be realised by means of a dewatering shaker or a dewatering mesh belt. The water that passes through these systems can be cleaned by means of either a static sieve or a self rotating filter drum.
The filtered water is held in the retention overflow tank beneath the discharge of the washer where it is re-introduced to the washer through the circulation pump.
Depending on the product specifications and the desired throughput the washer can be delivered in 600, 1000 and 1500 mm width.
