Features

Standardized frame

Standardized frame

Easily upgrade from 2000 to 3000 model to increase capacity

The stainless steel frame with sloped surfaces and mounted on wheels is the same for both the 2000 and 3000 models. Only the hopper, the mixer and the pump need to be upgraded.
Hopper lid

Hopper lid

Enables easy access and flexible line layout

The hopper lid opens backwards, enabling ingredients to be added from the sides and front at a low re-feeding height. This provides easy access for operators to refill the hopper if required. Two dosers may be placed beside one another without obstructing the refill process.
Choice of augers

Choice of augers

Ensure highly accurate dosing

As the auger turns, the ingredients are transferred at a steady dosing rate from the hopper to the pump. This unit can be fitted with a variety of different augers, and they are easy to change. This means your dosing is always optimized for the product type, size and required capacity range.
Lamella pump

Lamella pump

Gentle handling keeps ingredients intact

Ingredients are fed into the lamella pump and the cavities between the lamellas carry the inclusions into the pressurized product zone. The pump is designed to transfer the ingredients gently into the pressurized base product, without breaking or damaging them, and without incorporating any air into the mixture.
Compact design

Compact design

Maximizes space efficiency

Thanks to its small footprint (1.1 m2), the unit can be used in almost all production plants, even where space is limited.

Options

Ventilated lamellas

Ventilated lamellas

Enables a broad variety of large inclusions

The lamellas are designed with ventilation holes to ensure that all the air is released from large inclusions such as cookies, which may have a lot of trapped air inside them. When the pressurized base product meets the cavity, it naturally replaces any air that may be present between the inclusions, and that air then escapes through the ventilation holes.

Magnetic grid

Magnetic grid

Minimizes food safety hazards

Placed on top of the hopper, the magnetic grid is designed to trap any foreign objects made of metal, which may have found their way into the ingredients packages. Although this is a rare occurrence, an error can have dramatic consequences, so it is worth safeguarding your production with this simple option.
Insulated hopper

Insulated hopper

Maintains the inclusions’ shape

Soft inclusions such as fruit pieces often benefit from being injected cooled or pre-frozen. This not only maintains their natural shape, but also makes them easier to integrate into the ice cream – without causing it to melt.
Automatic CIP front cover

Automatic CIP front cover

Minimizes the risk of damage to the pump

For best results when cleaning, all the tight tolerances inside the lamella pump should be released to enable thorough flush through. This is achieved with an automatic CIP front cover inside the pump’s closed system. This type of cover also guarantees the right pressure during operation, and thereby reduces wear and tear of pump parts during both operation and cleaning.
