Washing Unit

edp’s extensive knowledge in the industry allows it to adapt and customise its standard product range to suit nearly all applications. In this instance, our customer requires some extra washing for his potatoes as the barrel washer was OK, but he just needed some preliminary washing to give his product a premium finish.

This unit was designed to fit in a very tight space prior to the barrel washer. It features 10 rows of rubber pintles with a set of high pressure nozzles mounted above. All the water is contained and recycled via the collection tank. A pressure pump delivers the water from the clean side of the overflow in the tank, to the spray header.


The tank has been fitted with an automated knife gate valve which allows the operator to program when they require a clean out flush. The tank also has an access door to ensure it is easy to clean. Overall a very compact and complete washing solution.”
