Crowland Fresh Produce is typical of our satisfied customers. They bag a lot of ‘Markie’ variety potatoes for chipping. With their previous bagging system two potatoes could become wedged in a weighing bucket. More important however was the limitation of vibrating lanes. While these were OK with dry, clean crops, dirty potatoes lifted from wet or heavy soils would deposit mud on the lanes necessitating regular cleaning stops, after every 2 tons with really dirty crops. This problem has been addressed by the installation of a 12 bucket Pro-Pak system with belt conveyors and X3L buckets. In six months of operation, the belts have been cleaned just once and that was on a quiet day when the whole shed was cleaned! The buckets are arranged in 2 facing rows of 6 buckets. Besides facilitating a shorter discharge belt and a speedier throughput, the 12 buckets offer the machine’s dynamic weighing system an amazing 900+ combinations to achieve consistent results via as few as just 5 buckets. The computerised system learns how big the potatoes are and calculates the best match every time to achieve an average bag throughput of 12 a minute.
