surges. The layton Hex Tube Feeder is cost effective too, priced about half the cost of a vibratory feeder.

 

FEATURES

  • All stainless steel construction
  • Centralized Lubrication
  • Serpentine chain drive
  • 7 hexagonal feed rolls
  • Floor stand and waste hopper
  • Safety guard with product drape
  • Inline gear drive
  • Tilt adjustment on stand

ABM 1000 Unit

Machine Description

Drawing

OPERATION

Products are dumped into air vacuum chamber where air cushion prevents damage to fragile items by

actually suspending them during the dumping procedure. While in dump chamber, the product is air

scrubbed and swept clean of debris and insects which are carried upward. Product passes through free

air flow high velocity vacuum chamber in which a “boiling” action takes place to thoroughly finalize the

dry cleaning phase.

 

CLEANER ALSO WASHES

Once the product has been thoroughly and gently vacuum cleaned, it moves to

the water bath to be sprayed uniformly by a continuing supply to fresh water.

As product is thoroughly cleaned, it travels across the de-water screen. It is then

discharged uniformly onto the inspection belt. Vibration- which moves product at

controlled rate – is restricted to the pan assembly and is not transmitted to the

frame. Gently, thoroughly cleans grapes, strawberries, raspberries, cane berries,

cherries, olives and other products.

The Layton “Velvet Air” Multicleaner is a versatile, soundly engineered unit that will

quickly and efficiently clean very dirty products. In-plant studies have shown that a

1000 Unit can cut labor costs up to 80%.

The secret of the 1000 Unit’s ability to give you a higher quality finished product is

its unique, strong-but-gentle velvet air cushion that scrubs a product free of insects

and debris. The 1000 Unit is in use in Europe, Canada, and the United States.
