    Rootveg Polisher

    Since we designed the first Haith Rootveg polisher we have carried out continual development to get the optimum in brush technology for different vegetables, ease of maintenance and low running cost for the end user, with this in mind we have just launched our new model for 2011 which unlike all polishers on the market today has NO DRIVE BELTS or PULLEYS to give problems, this machine has a patent applied for direct drive system which uses a unique coupling between the brush roller and gearbox to allow for roller removal in minutes.

    Polisher Drier

    Over the past 8 years since the introduction of the brush polisher to pack houses, washing has changed dramatically, lines using this type of system have found a good increase in pack out due to the polisher being able to remove imperfections on the skin which in many cases can bring the vegetable from class two to class one, giving the packer an excellent return on the investment.

    The brush rollers are a cartridge design and have a special bearing housing with extra sealing to prevent ingress of water giving extended life, there is also an option for automatic greasing to all bearings making the Haith polisher virtually maintenance free for many months.

    A further development on this machine has been the introduction of a sponge drying section on the out-feed of the rollers making this a very compact unit whilst reducing the cost of running a separate roller drier.
