Description & Dimension

5500 Twin Paddle Discharge Chute

The Thompson 5500 Mixer Mincer Feedscrew Design operates at a Right Angle to the Mixing Bowl & Paddle. This feedscrew design reduces the feedscrew length inside the bowl which maximises up to 8000 kg/hour production output rate but reduces overworking of the product of a feedscrew of longer length. Perfectly Proportioned for Maximum Efficiency and achieving production output rates of up to 8000 kg/hour on 1st cut through 13 mm Hole plate and 7500 kg/hour on 2nd cut through 4 mm Hole plate.

5000 Series

The Thompson 5500 Mixer Mincer has the option of a Product Discharge Chute, a pneumatically controlled door(s) on the end of the bowl that enables the bowl contents to be emptied without passing through the feedscrew and cutting system. On a conventional Mixer Mincer the product goes through the mincing process twice: once during the primary first cut reducing primal or meat trimming to a smaller particle size before being mixed with ingredients and then secondary cut to empty the product from the bowl.

The option of Unique Product Discharge Door will allow the product to be emptied from the bowl without the second mincing process to maintain much more of its meat integrity, avoiding risk of emulsifying through the feedscrew and cutting system. This produces product that is much juicier, more mouth feel, better bite and more of a home-style product. The discharge door discharge rate is another advantage for processing time improvement, generally a 200 kg batch will empty in about 40 seconds, depending on the consistency.
