Wyma's Clean Wet Hopper receives and stores produce in water prior to packaging, eliminating the need for boxes/bins. Flumes or conveyors gently carry produce to the bunker.
The modular conveyor in the base of the bunker moves produce towards the outfeed elevator. Speed-controlled outfeed elevators carry produce to the next stage in your line.
This system is a great time-buffer allowing you to store produce for short periods of time to even your line flow into packaging.
