Title
(EN) PRODUCE WASHER
(FR) MACHINE A LAVER DES DENREES ALIMENTAIRES
Abstract
(EN)
Produce, whether vegetable and/or fruit, is supported upon a screen basket (18) suspended within a closed cabinet (12). Each of a plurality of nozzles (334) disposed about the basket (18) emits a filled cone (338) of washing fluid (333) to scour the produce and to dislodge by agitation and flotation debris therefrom. After filtering of the washing fluid (333) through a screen (30) in the cabinet (12), the washing fluid is recycled by a pump (84) pumping the washing fluid (333) from a collection trough (80) to the nozzles (334). Preferably, the washing fluid (333) is slightly acidic.
(FR)
Des denrées alimentaires, tels que des légumes et/ou des fruits sont placés et supportés dans un panier (18) suspendu dans une enceinte fermée (12). Chaque pluralité d'ajutages (334) agencée autour du panier (18) propulse un fluide de lavage (333) sous forme d'un jet conique plein (338) afin de laver les produits alimentaires et d'en déloger les déchets par agitation et flottation. Après que le fluide de lavage (333) ait été filtré par le tamis (30) se trouvant dans l'enceinte (12), il est recyclé à l'aide d'une pompe (84) qui pompe celui-ci (333) d'un bac de récupération (80) aux ajutages (334). De préférence, le fluide de lavage (333) est légèrement acide.
