An important factor in growing and selling high quality greens is being able to efficiently wash, cool, and dry the product. The drying step is commonly done using centrifugal force in a spinner. The water is spun off of the greens through a filter basket or other porous container. This blog post and PDF publication provide background on some of the key features to consider when thinking about a spinner including cost, capacity, power, space and sanitary design. Manual spinners, washing machine conversions and commercially available electric spinners are described with links included for more information. An outline of a cleaning and sanitizing SOP is also included.
