MBS 401 | Washing and Screening Station

Product Characteristics

The MBS 401 from NHS Máquinas is a more economic version of the MBS 400. It consists of a piece of equipment designed to provide more comfort and agility in the first stage of the washing and sanitization process for a wide range of vegetable products. Completely made of certified AISI 304 stainless steel, the MBS 401 optimizes the initial screening and washing of products. Moreover, it guarantees the exposure time of products soaking in a solution that helps remove insects, snails, and larvae from fruit, legumes, and especially full vegetables.

How does MBS 401 work?

The products to be screened are introduced into the tank from the front or through the sides. The operators take the products from the tank, perform the screening, and put them on the conveyor belt that leads them up to the next washing stage. Besides, the MBS 401 has showers in place to make it easier for the operators to perform the initial product cleaning.

The main difference between the MBS 401 and the MBS 400 is that the MBS 401 has a smaller water volume and no storage tank. The MBS 401 has an integrated filtration system, as well as showers, as water recirculation is constant.

The MBS 401 is an optimal piece of equipment if you are looking for economy and agility, less operator movements, and automated transportation during the first stage of basic FV processing.
