OF STONES FROM
Tong sugar beet washers are built with uprated construction to effectively handle the large and hard Sugar Beet crop. Fitted with an effective close-coupled destoner at the infeed end of the washer, Tong sugar beet washers make light work of removing stones from sugar beet crop prior to processing.
Stones are removed from the washer tank via a heavy duty stone web elevator, whilst soil and debris is cleared via a heavy duty built-in auger. The sugar beet washer is built on a heavy duty chassis with road wheels and a tractor drawbar for easy transport. Tong’s simple yet effective sugar beet washer provides the ideal solution to your sugar beet destoning and washing needs.
As the sugar beet is fed into the barrel washer, it is met with a reinforced infeed chute for handling the tough crop at high speeds. Crop falls into the close-coupled destoner’s water tank where the sugar beet floats into the washer’s barrel. Stones are effectively removed as they sink to the bottom of the destoner tank, and they are then removed by a heavy duty web elevator.
Tong’s sugar beet washing equipment is fitted with a heavy duty auger inside the barrel tank, for the effective removal of soil that builds up in the tank during the washing process. A pneumatically operated sluice valve is also fitted to the barrel tank for easy discharge of dirty water.
FINAL RINSE ELEVATOR
The mobile sugar beet washer is built with a robust crop discharge elevator. With a durable, heavy duty ‘door-stop’ style rubber belt, for gentle handling of crop whilst allowing water to drain back into the washer tank. An efficiently powerful final rinse bar is fitted above the discharge elevator to ensure optimum crop cleaning results. Water spray jets give crop a final rinse as it comes out of the barrel for an enhanced washed finish.
