One-pass size reduction of products such as fruits and meats for baby food, peanut butter production, juices, and other applications where the final product will be a slurry, paste, or liquid. Equipped with a 12" (305mm) micro cut head and impeller.
Features continuous operation for uninterrupted production and simplified design to ease cleaning and maintenance.
Product received by the feed hopper is uniformly delivered by a variable speed feed screw to a rotating impeller. The high rotational speed of the impeller causes centrifugal force. This force moves the product radially outward to the impeller tips. This impeller tips combined with centrifugal force, carry the product past the cutting edges of the stationary micro cut head. The micro cut head is a ring of closely spaced blades. Product strikes the exposed cutting edges of the blades with great velocity. This action results in the removal of small particles unit reduction is completed. Particles are discharged through the spaces between the blades. Because of high impeller speeds, product remains in the micro cut head only a fraction of a second. The product is reduced in precise increments, emerging a uniform size.
Type of Cut
Particles sizes ranging from coarse to fine emulsions are possible. To ensure the proper combination of cutting parts, Sifter International, Inc. recommends your product be tested in one of our worldwide Product Test Cutting Facilities free-of-charge to find the most efficient solution to your size reduction needs.
