Designed based on top-notch manufacturing, technology, and operation concepts, NHS Máquinas’ LHM 800 has come to offer cutting-edge technology in the segment of high-capacity washing and sanitization of Fruit, Legumes, and Vegetables, starting with the multiple functions of the equipment, which enables washing and sanitization of various products and shapes, with applications in many line and process configurations, always combining robustness with maximum efficiency and smoothness. Another huge competitive edge and exclusivity of the LHM 800 is that it can be purchased with a conveyor belt or even with a vibrating chute, which is optimal for those wishing efficiency and less losses in transportation of large amounts of processed products.
The LHM 800 Multipurpose Hydrodynamic Washing Machine by NHS Máquinas has 15 high-flow side injection nozzles, 9 of which at the bottom of the tank and 6 at the top. Each nozzle can be adjusted as needed, with a forward or backward direction angle for better adjustment of the food washing time. In addition, it has water injection from the back for finer washing adjustment. The side nozzles, jointly with the shape of the washing tank, cause the food to run on a helical path during sanitization, sinking and then returning to the surface in an incredible way. All sets of water inlets in the washing tank are mechanically controlled by sanitary valves, allowing for products with higher or lower breaking strength to be cleaned as well as for excellent control and adjustment of product exposure to water.
The LHM 800 also has a tilting Floating Dirt Remover. This device can be turned on or not and works as a screen to remove dirt from the surface of the washing tank.
The foods, upon leaving the washing stage, are collected by a mesh belt or a vibrating tray. The belt has a mixing system to remove the excess water present along with the foods, and the vibrating tray carries processed products more smoothly.

Easy to maintain and simply designed, the Conveyor Belt is the right choice when it comes to transporting many types of foods. Its assembly concept is globally established, which ensures easy and efficient operation and maintenance. Besides, the structure has smart mechanisms developed by NHS Máquinas to make it even easier to sanitize the equipment every day.
Its vibration has 0% product aggression because it has no driving axle, increasing the final quality of your product, especially foods that are washed in slices. It also causes most of the water volume present in the product to not be transferred to the next stage and/or wasted in the process, ensuring higher economy of such a precious resource and asset.
Made up of a centrifugal air compressor, piping, sanitary valves, and electrical components, the bubble system considerably increases the efficiency of the process of removing “dirt” that is in contact with the foods, especially leafy ones.
