Herbert Barrel Washer

Auger Base Models

An extensive range of auger based barrel washing systems are available in mild steel and stainless steel with a cleaning capacity of up to 50tph.

Pintle Lining


Pintle lining strips help with the cleaning of difficult crops. The inside of the barrel can either be fully lined or half lined at the infeed end.

Driven Bush


The driven brush is cantilever mounted from the front of the washer. The position of the brush in the barrel is  adjustable using a hydraulic ram to alter its cleaning action.

Electro Hydraulic Controls


Simpe door and brush adjustment is provided by the push button and lever combination.

Driven Auger Base


The self emptying driven auger includes all the controls, allowing you to regulate the amount of water and waste discharged to suit your own conditions.

Elevator Rinse


Positioned above the water line, the final rinse of the crop has an optional dual system to allow fresh water and rinse solutions to be applied.

Unique Smooth Surface Spiral


The D Mould rubber spiral prevents potential damage from trapped foreign objects. The barrel is given a flush, smooth surface.

Integral De-Stoner


The Integral De-Stoner is supplied with a stone discharge elevator to either side of the flow and pumps water from the washer tank. It has the option of a filter box with stainless steel plates which can be removed for cleaning, or an open impeller pump which does not require filters.

High Pressure Jet


The high pressure jet gives the option of non submerged washing and can be used with either fresh water, or filtered barrel water to give additional wash prevention.

Technical Data

Special "add ons" which enhance the washer capabilities

Floating Object Remover

With the addition of a fine web side elevator, floating objects can be removed after the barrel but prior to the produce discharge elevator. A flow of water across the tank, coupled with an adjustable plough positioned just below the water line moves and floating debris onto the elevator which discharges it to one side of the tank.

Hydraulic Door

With the addition of a hydraulic pump and electric spool valves the washer door can be easily adjusted at the side of the tank. Remote door adjustment is alose possible but it is recommended that the door is visible, either physically or by the cameras to ensure the adjustment is correct.

Sludge/Waste Removal

For heavy washing applications and in particular on mobile washing plants, a sludge removal system can be supplied which works in conjunction with a bespoke auger system to remove heavy solids from the tank.
