Brush Washer Just before the leaves receive the final wash and rinse, they are mechanically brushed. The brushers have plastic brushes that pick the leaves up from the conveyor and press them against two or more brushes giving a cleaning action on every side of the leaves. The purpose for this step is to remove dirt and other foreign material from the surface of the leaves. Depending on the capacity of the plant one or several simultaneous lines of brushes can be installed. Usually the material of choice for these brushes is soft plastic, which vigorously removes unwanted material from the surface of leaves while being gentle enough to prevent injury to the leaf.
