Handling equipment - Receiving hopper | PowerCombi

Process up to 100 tons crop per hour with a maximum separation accuracy

With the launch of the PowerCombi, it is possible to use a receiving hopper with three highly efficient separation mechanisms to not only increase separation accuracy, but also to increase capacity up to 100 tonnes per hour. Up to 25% more efficient than the common systems. The first separator is comprised of adjustable rollers made out of highly durable polyurethan, which helps to separate loose soil, breaks up lumps of soil as well as separating smaller potatoes. The second separator is made of two specially designed rotating rollers, to aid further with separating smaller potatoes from the main crop. Oversized potatoes and other remaining impurities then pass through to the third separating device. An optical high performance separator, called FPS (Field Potato Sorter), developed and built by the specialist company TOMRA. Clods, stones and foreign material are sorted out by means of ejection fingers. Due to the high and exact separation, operating at up to 98% efficiency, far less staff are required to check for waste/bad crop and therefore this allows for considerably lower labour costs. The PowerCombi can easily be operated by a sole person.

Mechanical separation of loose soil, breaking up lumps of soil as well as pre-grading of smaller potatoes and cluds.
