The system features a new self-cleaning parabolic filter, heavy-duty pump motor, Iso-Flo dewatering shaker and Allen-Bradley controls, all of which helps enhance performance, ease sanitation and minimise maintenance, according to the group.
The fresh-cut produce industry is an important strategic market to Key," said the group's fresh-cut industry manager Teri Johnson. "We are focused on providing a wide range of superior processing and packaging solutions to help fresh-cut processors improve product quality and food safety while increasing operating efficiencies and cutting costs."
Designed for small or medium-large processors, the system integrates one, two or three flumes depending on individual requirements, as well as optional spray bars that can help achieve a single, double or triple wash.
To effectively wash produce and ease sanitation, the Flume Wash features an easily-accessible settling sump that allows rocks and heavy silt to separate from the product, with a water unloading valve that flushes sediment and bugs, the US-group noted.
"The Flume Wash is one in a series of reengineered products in our fresh-cut line designed to deliver the greatest value to our customers," Ms Johnson added.
