Destoner, rock/clod separator
Van Dijke’s Destoner & Rock Separators: the best way for destoning your products! We use a very high water flow rate to achieve perfect separation of rocks, lumps and dirt, yet treating your product gently.
Van Dijke uses a split soil/sand and a rock/lump discharge system for an optimum performance. The destoner consists of 2 sections: a receiving hopper and a settling tank. The product, like potatoes, carrots or other root vegetables, is brought into the hopper. The product will float and the rocks/lumps will go (through the water flow) to the bottom and will settle down on the discharge conveyer.
The water flow will take the product out from the hopper to the settling tank. Here the remaining soil and sand will be separated and discharged through a valve. The product outfeed conveyor is located in the dirt settling tank.
Less maintenance, easy usage
The machine is smart-designed. This means that almost all driven parts are placed above the water level. To simplify maintenance, the machine is designed so that all important parts of the system can be easily reached.
