THE CROSS ANTELOPE BEET WASHER
The Cross Range of stationary washers was released on the market for customers who do not wish to move the machine from site to site. Equipped with a state of the art electric hydraulic system it means just plugging in the machine and you are ready to wash beet, potatoes, carrots or any other root crop. Another advantage of this machine is its ability to be mounted on any flat trailer which the farm may already have. This keeps the cost down for the customer and makes it transportable when needed. With an output of 30 - 40 tonnes per hour . This machine will provide enough beet or root crop for any biogas plant, cow feeding unit or food processing plant.
The precleaning hopper is used to fill the beet washer as well as shake the loose dirt off the Beet. This saves the water from early contamination
The de-stoning section of the beet washer uses a patented cyclone system to seperate the stones from any root crop. All the stones that get sucked down through the bottom of the cyclone are deposited out of the machine seperate to the beet
This machine uses a range of jet nozzles to wash the beet as it tumbles up the discharge elevator. Not as good a wash as the Tumbler models but will still remove all the heavy clay.
Every Beet Washer in the CROSS range can be fitted with a chopper. While chopping the chop size can be varied hydraulically. This chopper can be lifted out of the way when not needed in order to wash whole beet.
With or Without De-Stoner
The Cross Range of stationary washers can be purchases with or without a de-stoner. These washers are module built so the de-stoner can be added in at any stage throughout the machines life. The De-Stoner allows the stones to be ejected out the side of the machine as cleaned stone. The clay settles in the bottom of the machine wash center of the machine and is emptied with the water.
The Cross Range of stationary washers can fit into any shipped container which make these the cheapest machine to ship world wide. The Rhino and Elephant are the top of the range when it comes to crop washing, but these machines have to go roll on roll off on a ship. The stationary washers can be shipping on any container line world wide and delivered to your address via standard container trailer.
Before & After
What a difference a wash makes
Cross Beet Washers are guaranteed to remove all the soil, dirt and stones from Beet or any root crop in order to provide a clean sample for animal feed, anaerobic digestion or sugar production. It is estimated that even the cleanest crop of beet to the visual eye still contains at least 5% dirt before washing. It has been proven that washing with a Cross Beet Washer can clean any root crop and separate the dirt no matter how clean it appears.
The Cross Range of stationary washers are fitted with Broekema Webs of your choice. A 50mm web can be fitted for larger crops such as beet or juice carrots. Smaller 30mm webs can be fitted then for potatoes or small root crops. This works well to stop crops falling through while ensuring cleaning still occurs. Custom Webs can be fitted at early request when ordering a machine.
Cross Beet Washers use a range of clever patented technologies to remove any size of stone from beet or any other root crop. From very large stones to small pebbles, it removes everything.
The cyclone system uses a range of rotating fins, varying water height and various pressures of pumped water to create the ideal whirlpool to suck stones down to the waste discharge elevator. The Beet does not pass across the cyclone as it would get sucked in also, instead the beet is directed at speed around the circumference of the de-stoner chamber in a raised body of elevated water. This allows the beet to propel at speed onto the elevator and also increases the output of the machine.
If the stone removal section of the machine was not performing correctly, then the output of the machine would suffer as well as letting stones through.
The Cross Range of stationary washers can be fitted with numerous types of drive units. Each drive unit is built to suit the customer needs.There are two types of engine drive. A JCB 75kw engine is used for the larger output applications and a Silence Engine is used for the lower output jobs.With an electric drive the system fitted is fully electric hydraulic and is built to suit your power source and machine requirements. With PTO, the system supplied is built to suit your machine and tractor. The machine will never be under stress due to this.
Variable in size
Cross Beet Washer Choppers all come with a variable chop size option. This allows the operator to select the desired chop size while the machine is in operation with the simple pull of a lever.
The chopper is not only adjustable but can also be folded out of the way when whole beet is required. This can be carried out with out the need for any machine stoppage. A lever will allow the operator to fold the chopper up when the machine is in operation.
