Handtmann Inotec IW Grinder

Latest generation industrial grinder for grinding frozen blocks and fresh raw materials

Highly efficient grinding in food and pet food production 

The ingenious combination of conveyor screw and feed screw as well as a special universal cutting set achieves both a high throughput and a perfect product appearance. Thus the cutting system can grind both deep-frozen blocks and fresh material without having to change blades or hole plates. The product-handling machine parts are made of stainless or food-grade plastic steel and are designed for high utilisation and a long service life. 

Integral part of processing lines 

At a hopper volume of 550 or 670 litres, the grinders have a generously dimensioned product reserve and can be fed by means of automated belt feed or lifting and tilting device. They grind the fed raw materials to final grain sizes of 3 to 30 mm (IW 300/IW 400: 8 to 30 mm) onto conveyor belts, buffer hoppers, box systems or cutter trolleys positioned underneath the outlet. As part of an automated processing line, the Handtmann Inotec industrial grinders are linked into the line control and safety circuitry. The IW series grinders feature a hygienic, easy-to-clean design, are easy to maintain and thus enable a continuous economically efficient and reliable production process.
