GEWA AF also has a clean in place
(CIP) system, which helps keep the
equipment itself sanitary with minimal
operator input. Self-contained nozzles
clean the machine at critical parts of the
machine, explained Quandt. Designed
with hygiene in mind, GEWA AF and XL
have rounded corners, are made entirely
of stainless steel and have minimal
moving parts. This makes them easy to
clean and maintain.
GEWA AF requires 370 gallons of
water. It washes baby leaf lettuce at
a capacity of 880 to 3,300 pounds per
hour. The GEWA AF can process iceberg
lettuce at a rate of up to 6,600 pounds
per hour, and baby spinach at up to 2,200
pounds per hour.
The second washer showcased at Fruit
Logistica was the GEWA XL, which hit the
market one year ago. It is Kronen's biggest
washer, designed for customers who want
to wash large volumes at high capacity.
It, too, is equipped with the active flume,
a feature designed to protect high-value

product from mechanical damage. GEWA
AF can be paired with GEWA XL as a
pre-wash solution that makes the latter
even more efficient at its job.
" It's an expansion of our standard and
really successful GEWA series washers,
which are known for their effectiveness
and efficiency for water agitation and
movement in a helical style, " Quandt said.
GEWA XL is equipped with a helical
wash system that utilizes 687 gallons of
water. Quandt said using a helical wash
system provides 10 times the travel space
for product without having to extend
the equipment itself. The high-capacity
washer processes baby leaf lettuce at a
capacity of 3,300 pounds per hour, and
iceberg lettuce at a rate of up to 11,000
pounds per hour.
The GEWA XL has a unique insect
and floating trash removal design that
improves this process without the need for
a dunking reel. It is equipped with a fresh
water rinse at the end of its cycle, and
belt discharge for gentle handling. The
belt itself has a quick-release feature that
allows sanitation crews to get underneath
for easy cleaning.
" We design machines that are easily
understood and don't require a lot of
talent to operate them, which increases
the speed of training, " Quandt said.
" People can pick up on how to operate a
machine a lot quicker when the design
is simple.
" Kronen's always working on improving
the process, improving the machine, and
also maintaining the flexibility needed
for a variety of products. "
