Tolsma-Grisnich introduces Intelligent Washing Technology

Tolsma-Grisnich introduces Intelligent Washing Technology
November 5, 2014
Maximal cleaning with a minimal amount of water. That is now possible with the new Drum Washer TGW from Tolsma-Grisnich.

The drum washer is equipped with intelligent sensors and advanced control technology. During the washing process the dirt levels of the washing water (sludge detection) and the flow of the product are measured. Based on these measurements the supply of clean water is controlled entirely automatically. The combination of the special shape of the wash drum and the advanced control technology results in minimal water and electricity consumption. The pause during the switch to another product (or from one batch to another) is kept to a minimum. As well as potatoes, the washer is also suitable for carrots, beetroot and other root vegetables and bulbs.

Official introduction

The official introduction of the drum washer and the stones, clods and haulm separator will take place during Interpom 2014 in Kortrijk. The installation is, however, too large to demonstrate at the trade exhibition. Therefore, everyone is invited to the open day on Wednesday 26 November 2014 at Grisnich in Emmeloord (Constructieweg 2). The drum washer and the stones, clods and haulm separator will be set up behind the factory where they will perform ‘live’ washing of potatoes. Tolsma-Grisnich will also demonstrate its innovations in the area of dry soil removal and the service software package.

Interesting presentations

The engineers from Tolsma-Grisnich will be available during the open day on 26 November to answer questions. In addition, Kiremko, Van Antwerpen Milieutechniek and Tolsma-Grisnich will be giving some interesting presentations. The content of the programme will be specifically geared towards the information requirements of the processing companies.
