Description & Dimension

5000 Mixer Mincer Open Hopper

There are Huge benefits of incorporating Open Hopper and Extended Hopper to the Thompson 5000 Mixer Mincer. The Open Hopper fitted with Safety Trip Bar (illustrated in the photo above) allows the Standard Interlocked Lid to be removed. This allows continual loading of 200 or 300 L bins with loader or conveyor improves efficiency and increase production output rate from not stopping the machine when the lid is open to re-load product.

The Extended Hopper combined with the bowl increases total bowl volume from 530 L to 830 L. The Larger Extended Hopper further increases total bowl volume to 990 L.

Additional Hopper Capacity is of great benefit when processing frozen product that is generally either pre-broken, flaked or pre-ground. Frozen product volume increases by 2.8 times on average. A 200 L bin will generally only hold 70-80 kg of -10°C frozen flaked, pre-broken, guillotined, or minced meat. As the frozen meat is mixed efficiently and homogenously in the 5000 Mixer Mincer the frozen flaked or minced meat becomes more condensed and the volume is reduced ready for 2nd cut mince process.
