MISE AU POINT DE LAVEURS DOUX POUR CAROTTES DE SABLE
Through the combined efforts of a number of manufacturers, more gentle washing systems implementing two different operating principles have been developed and tested:
- washing in a horizontal plane
- immersed rotary washing
These new washing systems have allowed a significant reduction in damage to carrots, resulting in better storage resistance of the vegetables. The units are used effectivelyon carrots grown in sandy soils. Washing must take place as soon as possible after harvesting. After washing with new units, carrots are somewhat less shiny than with conventional washing systems, but their long-term resistance is much improved.
