The buffer conveyor is filled during the drying cycle so as to not interrupt the continuous product flow. The configuration of the Sormac centrifuge minimizes the probability of the produce being damaged.
The SC/NextGen is characterized by an exceptionally open design with optimal accessibility for cleaning and maintenance. Energy savings of approximately 20% are achieved by the combination of more efficient motors and a frequency inverter with an energy recovery system.
Cut hard leafy vegetables, soft lettuces, and various cut vegetables. Depending on specific density, there may be restrictions as regards produce dimensions.
The capacity of the centrifuge depends on the product, the entry moisture level, and the desired final moisture level. Capacities of up to 5,100 lbs per hour are feasible.
Patented drum suspension
The drum hangs freely in conveyors and is positioned magnetically: Fewer moving and wearing parts and high cycle efficiency (quick filling and unloading).
Any unbalance is detected in a timely manner and corrected by a patented unbalance controller, thus achieving a consistently dry end product.
Optimally hygienic and accessible design
Large doors and covers provide optimum access to the machine for maintenance and cleaning.
Unique patented filling system
Ensures even drum filling with minimum damage to products.
Buffer conveyor setup of the drum
Enables continuous product supply.
