Product Discharge Chute, empties bowl without process through Mixer Head

The 5000 series Mixer Grinder has the option of a Product Discharge Chute, a pneumatically controlled door on the end of the bowl that enables the contents of the bowl to be emptied without passing through the Feed screw and cutting system.

On a conventional Mixer Grinder the product goes through the process twice, once during the primary first cut reducing primal or meat trimming to a smaller particle size before being mixed with ingredients and then secondary cut to empty the product from the bowl

Auto Reverse Feed screw

During the mix cycle the Auto Reverse Feed screw intermittently operates in reverse, which displaces most of the product from the feed screw ensuring the batch is more efficiently blended

This reduces the amount of unmixed product that needs to be discharged from the Feed screw and then re-added at the end of the mixing cycle
