Even coarse impurities such as adherent soil and small stones are removed by the short soaking, then settling at the bottom of the water bunker belt in a collection bucket specially designed for this purpose.
The special benefits of the water bunker belt system adjusts itself only in combination with the automatic flow control (optionally available). The high capacity output of 1.200 kg/h (peeled products) does only work in combination of these two components in a potato processing line.
Continuous filling of downstream machines
The water bunker belt fulfills a buffer function: the filling volume of 150 kg is processed in 5 to 10 minutes - depending on the capacity of the peeling machines connected downstream.
Soaking removes soiling
By briefly soaking, even coarse soiling such as adhering soil and small stones are loosened and settle on the bottom of the water bunker belt in a collection container specially designed for this purpose.
