Grinder tackles frozen meat blocks with ease

01 June 2019

The robustly designed AW K 280 Automatic Grinder from K+G Wetter is able to process both fresh meat and frozen meat blocks quickly and efficiently, even in continuous operations. 

The grinder employs K+G Wetter's two-worm principle. Due to a feeder worm made of cast iron with a peeler edge which allows it to cut frozen blocks instead of breaking them. 

The grinder also features a high hopper volume. With a capacity of 635l it is able to process up to 22 tonnes of fresh meat per hour at low noise levels, and is able to shred frozen meat. 

The machine is equipped with an optimised feeder worm counter bearing, which is now attached to the machine body with hinges. Instead of having to remove the counter bearing, it can be easily opened without tools. 

For cleaning the feeder worm just needs to be pulled forward a few centimetres. An internally installed cleaning nozzle automatically cleans the worm intake. In addition, a special flushing connector allows cleaning inside the machine behind the drive mounts of the meat and feeder worm should products push their way through a seal. 

An optional pneumatic sorting device enables simpler and faster control of rejected material by discharging the hard parts laterally during the mincing process. The pneumatic device can be quickly and easily installed and removed without tools.
