The Extructor® is designed for crushing and grinding large frozen blocks or barrels of bulk materials. While processing frozen blocks, the slow speed high torque rotor crushes and fractures the blocks whereas a tearing action is incorporated with pliable products.
The cantilevered shaft design of this size reduction equipment utilizes isolated bearings and drive components to prevent product contamination and make the Extructor® ideal for food applications.
The horizontal rotor assembly incorporates hammer elements with a progressive hook-like profile which draws material into the Extructor® body and conveys it towards the discharge/sizing plate. During conveyance, product is ground between the rotor and the close clearance stationary anvils.
