A producer of chilled, fresh cut vegetables and ready-to-eat meals, is going to invest into a new leafy vegetable processing line. The current washer is unfit for this fragile produce. He needs advice in the selection of a new washer.

Fresh, Food & Factory did perform an independent trial comparing washers, while taking into account the defined boundary conditions. A representative experimental set-up was made, in which among others production capacity, space requirements, energy consumption, maintenance, robustness and hygienic design were considered.

The results were written down in a report including conclusions and recommendations. The client is thus able to make an informed choice for the most appropriate washer.
