Equipment Spotlight

Accurate sizing and handling are central to maintaining the quality and marketability of your produce, and WYMA ENGINEERING knows it well. For carrots, potatoes and onions, sizing is especially important. With their non-uniform shape and variable textures, sizing root vegetables accurately and cost-effectively can be a challenge. Wyma’s Lift Roller Sizer has been specifically designed to meet the needs of customers that demand only the very best equipment. It can automatically be reconfigured to size a variety of produce without any engineering input to support multiple produce lines.

Wyma’s Lift Roller Sizer is a mature and proven system that uses a simple mechanical design, able to handle a range of throughputs from 10 to 40 t/hr. But that hasn’t stopped it from being routinely reviewed and improved, as Peter Newstead, Wyma’s Lead Design Engineer notes: “We know how important sizing is (to a processing line) as it’s where high-value produce can be identified and separated. But equally, it’s an area we focus on to reduce waste and ultimately increase our customers’ output.” 

As part of recent improvements, Wyma’s latest Lift Roller Sizer is constructed with a strong food safety focus. Produce contact points are all stainless steel or food-grade plastic, a trend you will see throughout Wyma’s range as food safety becomes a mandatory requirement for many of our customers.

The stainless steel construction is safer and will drive further efficiencies for operators by reducing cleaning times and scheduled maintenance, resulting in an extended operational life when compared to a mild steel alternative. Quality componentry and a unique driven roller design further reduces operating costs, allowing operators to maximise produce output. Due to its modular construction, future upgrades can be applied without replacing the entire machine, and, if required, custom configurations are available to meet specific customer needs. 

Wyma’s market-leading Lift Roller Sizer not only delivers superior output, but it is clean to run, easy to maintain and simple to operate. It is the most cost-effective solution for processors looking for a high volume, reliable and clean solution.
