Bale and Block Grinders
Large bulk feed materials often present handling and processing issues. However, in most cases, large bulk forms of materials present an economical way to package, transport, and ultimately sell materials for further processing. Bepex has two proven industry solutions to grind large bulk materials into a more suitable size for efficient processing. Our Extructor is a sanitary block grinder, primarily used in the reduction of cheeses, frozen meat, fruit, or vegetable blocks. The Rubber Chopper is designed to reduce bales of natural or synthetic rubbers to a small crumb size. In both applications, the primary goal is to increase the available surface area providing more efficient dissolution, cooking, or downstream grinding.
Both Bepex technologies are designed around the premise of low-speed high torque operation which provides the power necessary to shear through the large material without excessive heat input. This design philosophy means there will be no degradation of material due to excessive heat rise, and increased component wear life given it is a low-speed operation.
