Comitrol Processor Model 1700
Accommodates All Three Reduction Heads for Maximum Versatility
Recommended for free-flowing dry and semi-dry applications.
Maximum input product, in general, should not exceed 2.5″ (63.5 mm) for 3″ cutting heads; 3/8″ (9.5 mm) to a slurry for micro cut heads (depending on specific micro cut head and impeller used); and 1/4 to 1/2″ (6.4 to 12.7 mm) in any dimension (depending on impeller) for slicing heads.
Sealed enclosure deters escape of dust, vapor, and liquid when the Model 1700 is used in conjunction with a collection system.
Features continuous operation for uninterrupted production and simplified design to ease cleaning and maintenance.
The Comitrol Processor Model 1700 accommodates all three types of reduction heads which enable a broad spectrum of product processing capabilities. It is recommended for free-flowing dry and semi-dry product applications including textured vegetable protein, peanut butter, chicken slurries, surimi, baby food, dehydrated potato flakes, fruit and vegetable pastes, horseradish and dressings, extruded products, biscuits and cookies, nuts, fruit pulp, various spices, corn masa, hard cheeses, and a variety of gels, ointments, and creams.
This precision cutting principle has proven to be a processing breakthrough, with the versatility to meet your size reduction needs from coin size particles to fine emulsions. Standard operations include comminuting, granulating, milling, flaking, slicing, liquefying, dispersing, and pureeing.
Sealed enclosure deters escape of dust, vapor, and liquid when the Comitrol Processor is installed in conjunction with a collection system. Stainless steel construction ensures maximum durability and sanitation. The machine features continuous operation for uninterrupted production and simplified design for easy cleanup and maintenance.
Product [ 1 ] is guided to the high speed, rotating impeller. When the product reaches the impeller [ 2 ], it revolves at a high speed inside the cutting head [ 3 ]. Centrifugal force propels the product outward past the cutting edges of the stationary reduction head. Small portions of product projecting into the spaces between the separators are cut off into flakes by spaced columns of vertical knives. These flakes fly outward and away from the cutting head. The wall surfaces between the vertical knives are relieved to eliminate rubbing friction that would produce heat.
TYPES OF CUTS
Particle sizes ranging from coarse to fine emulsions are possible.
