Thanks to the several possible options, the modular design of the graders and DOWNS DG COMBI makes it possible to meet all your requirements according to your kind of product, the type of soil and your geographic location.
From the receiving hopper to the product conveyor belt, we will find the best solution to guide you through all your projects.
The receiving hoppers, whose capacity goes from 3m3 to 30m3, can be fitted with a flat part at the bottom to make the unloading of the trailers easier and increase the hopper capacity. Our heavy-duty designed hoppers are fitted with a rubber moving floor for a perfect respect of the product. The sides of the hoppers are also covered with rubber for a greater respect of the onions.
According to your needs, the onion grader or DOWNS COMBI can be equipped with a broad range of combinable modules. For example:
-a presentation or a measuring conveyor belt to spread and separate the onions before the cleaning modules.
