Haith RootVeg Peeler Polisher - shown with and without water recycling system

Haith have tested many brush configurations to be able to offer the optimum in bristle design to suit the type of crop being polished, there is a strict relationship between bristle stiffness, tuft size and pattern to achieve the right results for each particular vegetable. With the technology gained the end results are vegetables that have a bright colour, keep their shine and stay fresh for longer giving a superior product when packed in plastic bags or loose, which attracts higher sales over vegetables washed in a standard barrel or flat bed brush system.

Patented roller design - combination of carborundum and bristle

As with all machinery supplied by Haith the brush polisher is built to industrial standards to give hours of trouble free running, the machine is manufactured in 304 stainless steel and comes complete with inverter speed control to independently drive brush and barrel speed.

Much development has gone into this machine to reduce downtime or maintenance.
A special bearing system has been designed to make the removal of brush rollers simple and rollers can be removed from the outside of the machine. Brushes are in segments therefore if a brush or part of the brush is damaged a section can easily be replaced keeping costs to a minimum.

The Haith brush polisher can be supplied with a water recycling system, which will reduce the water consumption to around 1cubic meter per hour, as standard we have a drum spray system to clean the brush rollers at the end of a shift.

The barrel is supported and driven by heavy duty kevlar banded belts, the brush rollers are driven at both ends by V-belts giving positive control of the rollers and preventing any slipping when the polisher is working hard.
