The PAPRIKA-washing machine GEWA 3800V PLUS has been specially designed for washing and sorting sliced paprika (completely cut with core and kernels).
Due to the automatic special separation method different kinds of paprika (diced or sliced) can be processed. By means of a sophisticated water streaming system the waste and good product are separated thus saving extensive costs.
The machine can easily be adjusted, e.g. for various kinds of paprika. Furthermore, it can be used as a standard washing machine by easily lifting up the link conveyor.
A capacity of >800 kg (good product) can be achieved.
The standard design of the paprika washing machine includes WMS and sand trap funnels.
Special separation method
The PAPRIKA-washing machine GEWA 3800V PLUS has been specially constructed for washing and sorting sliced paprika (completely cut with core and kernels).
Due to the automatic special separation method different kinds of paprika (diced or sliced) can be processed.
light parts (core and "white parts") drift on the surface of the water and will be discharged via a link conveyor
heavy parts (kernels) fall to the bottom and will be discharged via the sand trap funnels
good product will be discharged via vibration outfeed for further processing
Compact and modular construction
The GEWA washing machines assembly is modular. This allows our machines to adapt to different production requirements and conditions, for example changing the discharge system from vibration to belt conveyor, or installing a new air bubble system on an existing machine. Mounting new optional devices to existing machines can be done by yourself or by our trained service team.
Sand trap funnel for paprika seeds & sandy products
The sand trap funnel is a worthwile equipment to the GEWA PLUS washing machine for paprika seeds and sandy produces like lamb's lettuce and also sprouts (separation of non-germinated seeds). Extremely sandy and dirty products will be washed gently and efficiently.
The sand trap funnel is able to absorb 98 l of the sand / water mixture. The sand trap funnel can be discharged either by the manual opening of a ball valve or can be discharged automatically by means of a pneumatic valve in combination with the WMS (water management system). Settings such as cycle of opening, opening period, etc. can be done at the switch box, thus an automatic and regular discharge takes place.
The filter strainer is available in various perforations for product and customer specific applications.
WMS (Water Management System)
The KRONEN WMS allows centrally controlled filling and emptying of the washing machines. During operation there is a fill level sensor to adjust automatically the water level in the tank. If the water level is too low, pneumatic valves will open automatically to add fresh water to the GEWA.
The standard system has two valves for filling and two valves for emptying the machine, as well as the necessary piping. WMS is operated from the GEWA control panel. We can offer special versions on customer request.
Heavy dirt particles (like small stones) and sand are removed from the product flow and settled separately in the sand trap, at the bottom of the wash tank. Thus we avoid the sand particles to return to the product flow.
Cleaning and maintenance
All pipes, pump cases, wash and pump tanks as well as covers and control panels are manufactured in AISI 304 stainless steel. Furthermore, KRONEN machines have been designed caring specially about:
