The latest addition to the range of sanitising tunnels from Industrial Washing Machines (IWM) is the new entry-level Econosan model, which has been developed to offer dependable and effective sanitisation at an attractive price point.
Suitable for sanitising produce in buckets, bags, tins and trays up to a maximum size of 450 mm wide by 450 mm high, the Econosan conveys the produce through a tunnel where a solution of sanitising fluid in mains water is misted onto the items from top, bottom and sides.
The speed of transit through the tunnel can be set and easily adjusted to operate at between one and four metres per minute.
The machine is arranged for manual loading and unloading.
After sanitising, items are discharged onto a small outfeed table.A photoelectric sensing and control system stops the conveyor when the table is full and restarts it automatically when the items are removed.
