HDS-L (RW 508)

As a result of harvesting an excessive amount of soil residue usually adheres to the crops and has to be removed by way of a suitable cleaning/washing technique.This falls under the responsibility of the HDS-L. The machine combines several processing steps: de-stoning, washing and water treatment.First, the adhering soil and stones are removed via upstreaming. A chain conveyor discharges the pollutants that settle at the bottom of a body of water over a chute.The water flow transports the sugar beets downstream into a washing drum. Here, the cleaning and drying takes place. A belt, which can be pivoted by 180 degrees at the rear end of the beet washer, finally discharges the prepared sugar beets. The built-in water treatment plant cleans the used water with the help of a lamella separator and feeds it back into the water cycle. This reduces the need for fresh water to a very minimum. A screw-blade transports the sludge leaking from the water treatment cycle to a sump and pump well, from where it is pumped into suitable containers or vehicles for removal. To cut a long story short: The HDS-L is the all-in solution for washing and cleaning and helps save a lot of water and energy – and this is usually not something other washing machines can be proud of!
