UK designer and manufacturer of vegetable handling machines Haith will use Fruit Logistica to officially launch an innovative new solution for packers and processors looking for a complete turnkey solution.
The Pro-Line from Haith is a flexible wash line platform designed to deliver maximum operating efficiencies while giving class leading gentle handling and labour reduction.
Developed over the last two years, Haith’s new solution features box tippler, soil separator, destoner, washer, polisher, optical graders, box fillers and packing machines in a customisable package, which provides customers with the most efficient and cost-effective way of streamlining their handling and packing processes.
“In the last couple of years, we have undertaken some of our largest ever turnkey projects,” says Duane Hill, Haith’s Managing Director, who will be on stand A-08 in Hall 4.1 at Fruit Logistica. “We’ve worked with a broad range of customers, from some of the biggest food producers and packers in the UK and overseas to lots of smaller businesses. By working on these complete solution projects, we have refined how our machines work together. Now we have a proven approach to delivering the most efficient lines possible while retaining the ability to customise them to suit our customers’ precise requirements. We are looking forward to being in Berlin next month and introducing people to our innovative solution.”
Haith’s Pro-Line starts with its class-leading all-electric drive Rota Tip Up-Eject, with its patent-pending energy-efficient and robust design.
Produce then moves through to a soil remover, which can be customised to suit the crop and the volume of soil surrounding it.
Haith’s pre-sizing units with a patented swing fill box filler can be positioned in front of Haith’s Supa Wash with integral destoner and floating debris removal.
Once washed and clear of debris, the crop enters Haith’s root veg polisher with an optional sliding bypass system.
Haith’s latest polisher features optional Cleaning In Place (CIP), which allows the operator to set the time when the polisher is cleaned by the detergent dosage system, preventing the build-up of bacteria. CIP is complemented by a zero-slip barrel drive system, an air-operated discharge door with finger-tip control and taper locks on all drive components – all backed up with a 2-year warranty.
The cleaned and polished crop is then moved via Haith’s patented Pro-Flow conveyor and chute transport system to an automatic optical sizer and quality grader.
