A key component in any Tong mobile or static vegetable grading line is a suitable cleaning unit. The coil cleaner ensures effective separation of soil, clod and haulm from crop post-harvest.

Tong offers a wide range of vegetable separators, which can be specified to suit your exact crop cleaning requirements. Allowing you to achieve more accurate and efficient grading results, or simply to remove excess soil from crop prior to transport or storage. Tong’s next-generation coil cleaner has been proven to make light work of both sizing and cleaning.


Manufactured in a choice of polyurethane (PU) or steel coil rollers, Tong’s coil cleaner is available as a fixed or adjustable cleaning unit. It can be specified as your chosen cleaner separator in a custom-built static grading or vegetable washing line. The coil cleaning unit can also be integrated into one of Tong’s mobile vegetable grading machines including the Caretaker, Storemaker and Fieldloader.

Designed as an efficient cleaning system suitable for light soil conditions, the Tong coil cleaner can also be fitted after an EasyClean Separator, ideal for sizing out smaller crop between 15mm to 55mm. Built with 4, 6 or 8 rows of spiral coils or PU rollers the coil cleaner is gentle on crop whilst effectively removing loose soil, small stones and clod from the crop.




Tong’s new super-speed self-cleaning function is already proving to bring invaluable time-saving and operational benefits.
One of the key advancements with the new super-speed self-cleaning function is that it removes the need for manual cleaning of coil shafts. Not only is this much safer, it significantly reduces downtime with an automatic self-cleaning process which is performed in a matter of seconds.
Incorporating a heavy duty, scissor-action shaft design, the deformable PU coil shafts feature an easy-maintenance coupling and are fully adjustable to suit a wide range of sizing requirements.



A popular choice for effective onion, potato and red beet cleaning, the PU coil cleaner offers gentle yet effective removal of soil, clod and haulm from crop. Like the steel models, the heavy duty PU coil cleaner is available with a choice of fixed or adjustable shafts in a 4, 6 or 8 row configuration and in standard widths from 1.2m to 2.4m wide. When specified as an adjustable cleaning unit, the gaps within the shafts are adjustable from 10 to 55mm.



Tong’s steel coil cleaner is available with a choice of fixed or adjustable shafts, in a 4, 6 or 8 row configuration. Also available in standard widths from 1.2m to 2.4m wide. When specified as an adjustable cleaning unit, the gaps within the shafts are adjustable from 10 to 55mm.
When used for cleaning carrots, parsnips, salad potatoes and smaller diameter crop varieties, the coil cleaner is supplied with 110mm diameter tight wound coil shafts with a 10mm shaft gap, adjustable from 10 to 55mm. When specified for use on large diameter crops including main crop potatoes, red beet and onions, for effective husk removal, the coil cleaner is supplied with 100mm diameter tight wound coils with a 20mm shaft gap, adjustable from 20 to 55mm.



Tong coil cleaning units can be specified with an electric direct drive motor on every shaft, featuring Tong’s Blue Inverter Technology.
