Drum washing machines

Drumwasher 800.png

The drum washing machine of FMT is used to wash potatoes and other root products.

The machine consists of a rod drum and frame. By choosing a certain distance between the rods, the maximum size of the impurities to be separated is determined.

The cleaning operation is based on a combination of water and mutual rubbing together of products. In order to optimize the rubbing effect, the quantity of product can be regulated by a sliding plate at the discharge side of the drum. By hand or automatically. Cleaning with water is achieved by means of sprays and/or water bath.

Both possibilities are freely adjustable. In this way you can choose the optimal cleaning method for each kind of contamination, without increasing water consumption.
