Sanitary Food Pulverizer | Extructor Block Grinder

Sanitary Block Grinder

The Extructor is a heavy-duty, food-grade grinder designed to reduce the size of large blocks of materials. It operates on the premise of low speed, high torque, which minimizes heat input into material while delivering the power needed for size reduction. The Extructor is widely used for grinding natural or processed cheese blocks and wheels ahead of a melting and blending step, or grinding frozen meat blocks prior to cooking or a secondary meat grinder in pet food and animal feed production.


  • Low-speed high torque design generates the force required to grind large blocks while minimizing heat input
  • Material and application-specific orifice and spoke plates available
  • Consistently sized particles for downstream cooking, melting, blending or grinding
  • Cantilevered shaft isolates bearing and drive components to prevent product contamination
  • High grinding capacities in a compact footprint

The Extructor block grinder is able to receive and grind blocks or barrels of bulk materials. The material enters via the inlet chute, where slow rotating claw-like hammers begin cutting into the blocks. The cut material continues to be sheared apart as it is conveyed towards the spoke or orifice plate where final sizing takes place. When crushing frozen blocks, a spoke type plate is utilized producing particles ranging from 1-5 inches (2.5-113cm). When grinding natural or processed cheese, an orifice plate is often used to produce extrudates, or noodles. In both applications, the additional surface area exposed dramatically shortens the cooking or melting phase which typically follows grinding, streamlining the process.

The Extructor block grinder is just one of the size reduction technologies we employ to develop industrial food process systems that meet your application requirements. At Bepex, we are committed to developing the best size reduction process systems using the right technology.
