The coffee cherry washing machine can sort a certain number of immature cherries, as well as stones and soil, sand, leaves and other impurities in the ripe cherries. High-quality coffee cherry is denser than water, and defective cherry seeds do not form well and will create air gaps, which means they will float, while dirt, sand, and stones will settle. This coffee cherry washing machine is widely used in parts of Latin America and East Africa.
Coffee Cherry Washing Process
The first step in coffee cherry washing is to put all the cherries in the water and remove any floating matter. This is to remove any defective or immature cherries. Coffee Cherries floating in water are usually defective. This may be due to damage caused by the coffee cherry borer [a common coffee pest]; it may be something that happened on the farm that prevented the coffee from fully ripening.
The coffee cherry washing machine uses a combination of bubbling, surfing, and spraying. The volume part of the three-effect washing box is inclined to facilitate the removal of the sand and mud in the coffee cherry picked from the farm. The feed is on the right side. There is a compulsory sewage tank, and there are two filters in the sewage tank that can be removed and replaced.
The tossing effect of the coffee cherry in the water through the bubble in the release process causes the coffee cherry to have an irregular and strong flipping movement in the water. The movement of the coffee cherry effectively separates the surface attachments of the cleaned object and simulates the basic action of manual washing. Coffee cherry is a tossing motion generated in the soda water mixture, which effectively avoids damage to the coffee cherry such as bumps, scratches, etc. during the washing process, improves work efficiency, and changes manual operations to mechanized processing.
During the coffee cherry conveying process, the coffee cherry cleaning machine adds a spray cleaning function, so that after the coffee cherry is cleaned in the soda bath, it is sprayed and cleaned. The function of this process is to replace and remove the dirty water on the surface of the coffee cherry. Improve the cleaning effect of coffee cherry . At the same time, the external cleaning spray water will automatically flow into the water bath after the coffee cherry is cleaned twice, so as to replace the cleaning water in the supplementary water bath and keep the water quality clean in the water bath. It not only improves the utilization rate of washing water, but also increases the cleaning effect of coffee cherry.

Coffee Cherry Washing Machine Advantages
Coffee Cherry cleaning machine can save a lot of water, pressurized spray head, the water pressure is large and sprays far. Cooperate with the circulating pump to increase the water flow pressure, effectively saving more than 80% of water. (In many coffee-producing countries, this is an extremely important selling point, such as countries where water in the African desert is usually a scarce commodity)
During the lifting process, the coffee cherry air-drying equipment is equipped to quickly remove the residual water droplets on the surface of the cleaned coffee cherry and improve the subsequent processing efficiency.
Coffee processors are constantly looking for ways to maintain the quality of coffee beans. The air-dried coffee cherry can also be equipped with a picking belt, and workers can be hired for a second round of screening to further reduce the number of defects in the final coffee cherries.
