As a grower you want to deliver clean, good looking products while maintaining efficiency and decreasing costs. Manually removing weeds from your products is a time-consuming process that decreases efficiency while increasing costs. However, it’s a necessary process to deliver quality products.
‘Covering’ is an effective protection against weeds that has been in use for several years. This method automatically applies a covering medium to the tops of pots to supress weeds and significantly decreases labour costs.
The Visser Pot Topper is a uniform covering machine that is used to automatically cover pots with several different types of covering media such as: bark, rice hulls, nut shells, or soil.
Dual speed string conveyors gently spin the pots through the machine and spring sweepers level off the media for a consistent cover. With the adjustable speed conveyors and gate opening, it allows growers to determine the precise amount of covering media for each pot type. Any excess media that falls outside of the pot will be recycled back into the main hopper and re-used.
The Visser Pot Topper works fast and covers pots uniform and clean. This machine will immediately give growers a competitive advantage with a cleaner more presentable product and lower end cost per item.
The Visser Pot Topper can easily be integrated into any existing automation or used as a standalone unit.
