Product Description

De-Lump Your Post-IQF Product More Hygienically

Overview

The machine is designed to break apart blocks / lumps of your already frozen food products, that are stored in cartons. Rather than inserting a drill into the container, this more hygienic method applies pressure to the exterior of the package. The unit handles product in single cartons, packed on a pallet, with total maximum dimensions of 1200 x 800 x 1850 mm.

Operation

An operator puts the pallet, loaded with cartons, wrapped in stretch film into the machine chamber.  After the door is closed, the operator enters the height of the total pallet / cartons along with the desired amount of pressure cycles.  Once entered, the operator presses the process start button to activate an automated cycle.

The chain-mounted pressure head runs along 8 rollers mounted to corner posts, and runs from top to bottom. A geared motor with a brake regulates the process. 

When the head is lowered to the top part of the pallet with cartons, the cycle begins.

Bumpers configured in oppositely-set pairs apply pressure to the cartons. These are driven by hydraulic cylinders – two per each bumper, 8 in total. 

Once the bumper makes initial contact with the carton, the hydraulic system also generates additional vibration to assist in the process. 

After the cartons have received pressure and vibration to the stop point,  the head moves by the preset value down and the next compression cycle by the bumpers occurs. 

When the cycle is finished, the head lifts to the top extreme position. An operator may open the safety grids and take out the pallet.
