Products Info

  • Category



SEMI-STAAL is the pioneer in the field of tub/tote washers and washing systems and has supplied more than 100 washer systems around the world – primarily to the fish industry. Our solutions handle 440-1.000 litre tubs/totes with a capacity span from 10-100 tubs/hour. We build all kinds of solutions from small stand-alone tub/tote washers to fully automatic integrated washing systems. Our tub/tote washers (TW-series) are built on two different infeeding solutions – cabinet or tunnel – resulting in small and larger capacity spans. All our washing machines are made according to HACCP principles.



TW 1 series capacity span from 10-20 tubs/hour
TW2 series capacity span 20-100 tubs/ hour

With the TW1 solution infeeding and discharging of tubs/totes are done on the same side of the washer. Whilst with the TW2 solution, infeeding of tubs/tote is done on one side of the washing section and discharged on the opposite side resulting in a higher capacity and separation of the clean and unclean side. Both tub/tote washer solutions are equipped with a pre- and after-rinse solution.
