Fast and certain elimination of stones, clods and floating debris

The Series 1500 De-Stoner offers a flexible solution to remove stones and clods from your crops, while the Series 1600 Floating Debris Removal System does the same for crop debris that floats. The Series 1500 is available in two configurations: as a standalone machine or integrated into the Series 1000 Barrel Washer. Both configurations are easily combined with the Series 1600 as part of an automated chain of cleaning and preparation for your sorting process.

    Series 1500 De-Stoner:

    • High-capacity and robust solids handling pump
    • Durable rubber chevron elevator belt to handle stones
    • Shared water supply from washer reducing overall water usage
    • Simple valve adjustment to fine tune stone removal
    • Quick releasing door for cleaning and access to tail of elevator

    • Gate valve discharge for waste water
    • Open impeller pump which does not require filters

    The Series 1500 De-Stoners are engineered with your business in mind. They use a water weir system to effectively remove stones and clods. High-capacity pumps transport removed debris from the crops, and quick-release doors allow you clear the tanks quickly and easily. Simple controls provide the ability to fine-tune your cleaning level, so you use only the amount of time and water that are required.

    Both the standalone and integrated versions of the Series 1500s are built with the future in mind. The standalone unit is designed to be easily upgradeable to a full washer solution. The integrated de-stoner works hand-in-hand with the Series 1000 Barrel Washers to remove all heavy debris at the start of a wash system, reducing the possibility of product damage or bruising. Both designs ensure that, no matter how long your product has been stored after harvest, only the intended product makes it through to the next stages of washing and sorting.

    The Series 1600 Floating Debris Removal System pairs well with the Series 1500 to remove debris the floats. Using a rotating cleated belt, the Series 1600 continuously skims the downstream end of your washing/soaking tanks to remove debris and prevent it from clogging your sorter infeed or other equipment down the line from your washing stations. The Series 1600 adjusts so you can assure that all floating debris is removed, no matter how much product or water is in the tank.
