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.
