Receival tanks are constructed with heavy gauge stainless steel which make them hygienic and highly durable. A sloping floor allows easy drainage and an access door is fitted to assist cleaning. The walls of the tank are panelled with thick insulation sheets.
Cherries are transported from the receival tank by the variable speed elevator. The elevator runs along the floor of the tank and inclines at a 45o angle. The plastic conveyor belt has flights to maintain an even distribution of cherries up the elevator and maximise its load capacity
