Our receival tanks are manufactured with heavy gauge, stainless steel, which makes them hygienic and highly durable. Easy drainage is achieved with a sloping floor, and is fitted with an access door to facilitate easy cleaning. Finally, the walls of the tank are paneled with thick insulation sheets.
Cherries are transported from the receival tank by the variable speed elevator. The elevator runs along the floor of the tank and inclines at a 45° angle. The plastic conveyor belt has flights to maintain an even distribution of cherries up the elevator and maximize its load capacity.
Water sprays fitted over the water receival tank create a current which forces any floating leaves and debris over a weir at the delivery end of the tank, and then the extraction belt conveyor removes orchard waste to be disposed of.
Carefully considered elevation angles, complimented with a soft brush as cherries breach the water level, means no “roll-backs” of fruit through its elevation, and the elevator is able to maintain a full and evenly distributed load.
