Overview

If you’re looking for an extra boost to your vegetable cleaning process, Tong’s dry brushers can effectively remove excess soil from crop prior to washing for optimum results.

Popularly used to clean potatoes or remove excess husk from onions, the dry brusher offers gentle handling whilst effectively removing excess debris from the crop.

Built to incorporate a series of heavy duty brush shafts that rotate to gently clean crop whilst transferring it forward along the brusher’s bed, the dry brusher can be specified as a single flat-bed dry brusher, or with the option of a large, adjustable rotating top brush for enhanced cleaning results.

Manufactured to suit your specific requirements, Tong offers a wide range of dry brushers as standard, with a choice of 600mm, 915mm or 1200mm wide and 1.5m (11 brushes), 2m (14 brushes) and 3m (21 brushes) long.

When using the dry brusher in heavier soil conditions, or where an enhanced crop cleaning finish is required, the dry brusher can be specified with the option of a large, adjustable rotating top brush, powered by its own fixed speed motor, to give added brushing action as crop passes over the brusher.

DIRECT DRIVEN SHAFTS

DIRECT DRIVEN SHAFTS

Tong vegetable dry brushers are available with the option of Tong’s Blue Inverter technology inverter direct driven motors on every shaft. This option offers exceptional energy efficiency, whilst eliminating the need for conventional sprocket and chain drive, resulting in a much lower maintenance machine. A key design feature lies in the motors being fixed to each shaft using a coupling, which allows motors and rollers to be quickly and easily removed, making maintenance much easier than ever before. These features combined, ensure minimal downtime and provide exceptional cleaning results.

VARIABLE SPEED

BYPASS SYSTEM
