Receiving, washing and transport
TRANSFER YOUR PRODUCT AS
The modalities in which your product could arrive to our company are many: in 25 kg boxes, in 250 or 400 kg bins, or directly on the loading area of the trucks, and then to be discharged with hydraulic discharge. The Ing. A. Rossi receiving tanks, channels and belts are suitable for any type of raw fruit conveyed, with different shapes and sizes depending on the type and quantity of product to be processed.
OUR SEPARATION SYSTEMS
We use screw or scraping systems for the separation of foreign materials in your product (stones, silt, sand, various objects). A further refinement in the elimination of foreign substances can be achieved by passing the discharging circuits at only one water to multiple water systems. According to the needs and capacities semi-automatic or automatic overturning bins systems can be provided.Specially designed for leaf vegetables processing, we use rotating baskets systems for coarse impurities separation from the product, as sand, earth, dry leaves, insects, etc.
TRANSPORT WITH HYDRAULIC CONVEYORS
During high production periods, or if the distance between the receiving or discharge area of the product and the selection and washing section is great, it is necessary to provide hydraulic conveyors for the transport of the product to the sorting tables. These conveyor systems can be installed underground so they do not interfere with moving vehicles in the service areas and can be built in stainless steel or in cement adequately coated.
Then to bring the product to other machines bucket or roller elevators can be used. In order to eliminate grassy residuals special weed removers can be used.
TRANSPORT WITH BELTS
For the handling of products for which hydraulic transport is not possible, we manufacture belt conveyors, suitably realized according to the specific needs of the Customer. The external structure of these systems is in stainless steel, whereas the conveyor belt can be either in canvas or in stainless meshes or in plastic material, according to the type of product to be transported.
ROLLER SORTING AND QUALITY CHECK
At the end of the receiving line the washing machines by spray or brushes and the roller sorting tables are placed. These stainless steel rollers allow the product both to move forward on the table and to rotate on its axis so that the employed personnel can carry out the quality check and verify the product integrity. A polypropylene waste conveyor with independent drive collects and removes the fruit deemed unsuitable.
SEPARATION WITH ROTATING BASKETS
A rotating basket system, consisting of a mesh cylinder entirely stainless steel made, allows heavy parts and impurities separation, as earth, dry leaves, stones and sand. The inclination of the basket allows the product progressing during the rotation, whereas all wastes are collected and removed by means of belts positioned under the basket itself.
THE QUALITY OF THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS IN RESPECT OF THE ENVIRONMENT
We, of Ing. A. Rossi, work thinking of getting maximum results with minimal environmental impact. In fact we use stainless steel drum filters in order to retain the impurities, which allow both the reuse of transport water and the limitation of water consumption. The impurities retained by the filter are removed by a scraper and by the auger.
The filtered water is collected in a tank and can return to the line by pump or by exploiting the height difference between line and filters, generally placed on scaffolding a few meters high. Depending on the complexity of the receiving line you may generally have from 1 to 3 filters, one for each type of water present in the line: discharge water, the primary transport water and secondary transport water.
