The Fresh Market Sweet Corn Husker by Hughes is designed for the gentle handling and production requirements of the value-added fresh market sector.
On this corn husker, a vibratory feed shaker allows for smooth and even feeding of the corn cobs into the husking system. The husker bed is assembled with low-profile rolls which are the least aggressive roll, thus causing minimal damage to the product during processing.
The husker bearings are capped, shielded and sealed to protect them from moisture, with the added benefit of keeping the corn clean.
Fresh market huskers are frequently used in concert with cob saws as some customers desire an even cut or the cob to be tipped and tailed, which also it makes it easier to husk.
For customers that use a cob saw in tandom, the Fresh Market Sweet Corn Husker capacities will decrease to match the saw capacity.
Hughes Equipment makes several models of the Fresh Market Sweet Corn Husker. Models and capacities are:
• Model 804, 240 ears per minute
• Model 1204, 360 ears per minute
• Model 1604, 480 ears per minute
Husking rates can be affected by conditions of the corn.
