The BDS 3000/800 is used for de-watering salad, leaf lettuce and baby leaf. It removes excessive free moisture from the products before the drying process. The
residual moisture can be reduced up to 3 - 8 % depending on product and capacities. Products are transported by a mesh grid belt of 2000 mu.
The products drop on the infeed belt, move to the knocking section and will there evenly be distributed.
The products are running inbetween two belts (top/down). In a first step the suction device takes the first moisture from the product. Directly afterwards the products (only leaf and light products) are blown to the top belt where a further suction operation is performed. In this way several dewatering operations take place. More heavy product will stay on the bottom belt.
The de-watering belt system is designed with an open stainless steel frame. Round materials are used whereever possible. The BDS 3000/800 is characterized as a hygienic and “easy to clean” construction.
The outfeed bottom is equipped with an air knife to remove remaining product from the belt.
A noise reduction box captures moisture and reduces the noise.
