Thompson 5500 Mixer Mincer Production Rate Improvements with Thompsons Patented High Efficiency Cutting System (HECS) Mincing System & Variable Frequency Drive (VFD)

The 5500 Series Twin Shaft Mixing Paddle Mixer Mincers incorporate the same high-performance mince technology as Single Shaft. The 5500 Series have a larger Hopper Capacity & Batch Mixing Capacity which provides increased efficiency by reducing product mixing time through reduction of number of batches required per day. The 5500 Series capacities range from 888L on the 5500 model through to 3410L on the 52000 model.

Volumetric measure to the top level of the mixing paddles is the important specification as that is where the efficiency in the mixing action is governed. The 5500 Mixer Mincer has a volume capacity of 600L to top of the paddles which allows effective mixing of the 500kg batch.

5000 Series

The 5500 Mixer Mincer is fitted with a 22 kW Gear Motor Mince Drive with ability of upgrade to a 30 kW Gear Motor Drive. Increased gear motor size provides additional advantages when processing frozen meats. The 5500 Mixer Mincers can easily process frozen tempered, pre-broken or flaked meat at temperatures down to -12°C.

Mincing production output rates become more important with larger batch processing volumes. The larger the
production batch the more critical it is to empty the product from the Mixer Mincer at the fastest rate possible. On completion of the mixing cycle, it’s destructive if product remains in the bowl and is continually being mixed by the rotating paddles. This results in extracting additional protein damaging meat particle and spoiling product from the extended mixing time.

IMPORTANTLY, when mixing larger batches in larger Mixer Mincer, the batch mixing time must remain the same as when mixing the smaller batches in a smaller Mixer Mincer. This is achieved by using Thompson Overlapping and MultiDirectional Mixing System Design, the most efficient mixing system cycle and design, saving overall mixing time and increase production output rate.
