Changeable GEWA vibration screens for optimized product outfeed
Aim: Dewatering of the product and separation of undesirable fines from the end product
Machines: GEWA washing machines with vibration outfeed, e.g. GEWA 2600V ECO, GEWA 5000V ECO, GEWA 3800V PLUS, GEWA 4000V PLUS and diverse vibrating tables
Available hole sizes of vibrating outfeed plates (varies with type of machine): 1.5, 2, 3, 5, 8, 10, 12mm round perforation and diverse sizes of square perforation
Result: By choosing the optimal hole size for the respective product, the dewatering capacity and the separation of undesirable byproduct can be improved:
Capacity: The capacity varies with the type of machine and processed product
Using the GEWA 3800V PLUS with vibration outfeed, up to e.g. 1.000 kg of white cabbage, 700 kg of iceberg lettuce or 750 kg pepper strips can be processed per hour.
Using the GEWA 5000V PLUS with vibration outfeed, up to e.g. 2.500 kg mixed salad, 2.000 kg Chinese cabbage or 5.000 kg of tomato cubes can be processed per hour.
Basic conditions for the process are:
Additionally, extended vibration plates are available as retrofits for all GEWA ECO washing machines. For GEWA PLUS, upon ordering the machine, a vibration table extended by 500mm can be ordered optionally.
Such an extension improves the effects of dewatering and pre-sorting and can as well be used to deliver the product from a low care area to a high care area.
