WSB 700 Belt Picker with STAR­PICKER©

High-performance Picking Machine

High-performance Picking Machine

The WSB is the most powerful hop-picking machine in our program.

Its modular construction enables an ideal adjustment to the hop grower’s requirements, providing a flexible installation. Its capacity can be increased later on at minimum expenditure. The WSB picking machinery guarantees a first-class, gentle picking. By the working platform on three sides, you have a good access to the machine.

Adjustment and maintenance work can be done very comfortably. Picking drums distance, bine passage speed and picking drums rotational speed have a stepless control system. The picking process can easily be adjusted to different hop varieties.

1 Picking Belts

Picking fingers with springs enable a careful intervention into the whole bine depth. The cones are wiped off gently and without being damaged. Different speeds are possible due to the direct drive.

2 Bypass / Hinged Belt / Sorting Belt

A specially designed hinged rake belt gently guides 97% of the picked material in the „bypass“ past the STARPICKER© to the windbelt cleaning system.

3 Quad Pre-Collection + Roll Cleaner

Best green hops are harvested already before cleaning process without being damaged. Up to 70% of the cones are guided out of the machine.

4 Sickle Cutter

The quiet and wear-free sickle cutter is processing the cleanly picked bines.

5 STARPICKER

The STARPICKER© is the most powerful subsequent picker unit by WOLF so far. Different, in speed and design optimized picking drums are separating the cones from the remaining material as fast as lightning.

The STARPICKER© is working maintenance-free during harvest. A twisting of bines or adhesion of waste material in the drums is almost excluded. This self-cleaning effect has been achieved by a special cleaning unit. The pipe belt is filtering coarse waste out of the process.

6 Pre-Collection before Cleaning Fan

About 50% of the total cone proportion is already completely cleaned here and can be led as pure hops directly to the belt leading to the kiln. The pre-collection rubber belt is saving these clean cones from further process steps.

7 Cleaning Fan

New frequency-controlled fans are providing an energy-efficient operation.

8 Pre-Collection before Rubber Belt Cleaning

A further 20% of the total cone proportion can already be collected before the belt cleaner as pure hops and transported to the belt leading to the kiln. Each cleaning unit has got its own pre-collection step. Beside the positive effect on hop quality, the pre-collection is relieving the following cleaning belts and increasing their efficiency.

9 Rubber Belt Cleaning

The approved belt cleaning system has remained unchanged from the previous version. As usual, the cleaning can be adjusted quite uncomplicated. Here, the last cone is separated from green hops.
