The Bob Wash is an affordable, small-scale system for ensuring salad greens and root vegetables are washed and packaged safely. The system contains a wash basin that agitates the vegetables and moves them along a conveyor belt into a drying machine. It is able to handle a variety of vegetables, costs a fraction of industrial scale washing systems, and can be set up right on the farm. With the Bob Wash, the product contains fewer insects and debris and has a longer shelf-life, which has increased the bottom line.
