The Proficut vacuum cooking emulsifying mixer is a universal plant for the manufacture of a wide range of products such as processed cheese, cottage cheese spread, desserts , creams , mousses, soups and sauces, baby food, gravy, stuffing, sweets, pastries, pies, mincemeat, nut pastes, marzipan, and many others. All operations from raw material input to the finished product are performed sequentially in a single plant.
Loading raw materials ( butter, cheese, meat … ) is possible without the preliminary grinding blocks.
Grinding, mixing, and heating are implemented under a vacuum to prevent oxidation, reduce the temperature of processing the product, and thereby retaining its taste and flavor and giving it an attractive appearance.
The design of the ProfiCut plant consists of a working vessel mounted on the frame with pivoting supports. The operating bowl is equipped with a jacket for heating and cooling. Heating the product is also possible by the direct feed of steam going directly into the product. The integrated knife grinding head with direct drive from the motor (or the gearbox on request) is situated in the bottom of the operating vessel. There is a low speed drive reversing agitator on the cover of the bowl that provides delicate mixing of the product and a uniform heat exchange between the walls of the working container and a product, using a special form of scrapers. Also, lid accessories include a dosing funnel (to dispense the dry ingredients in the product) and a vacuum unit to maintain the required degree of vacuum inside the cup.
The rotatable mount allows you to set the bowl in a working position for the most convenient loading with standard containers. Unloading products are performed through the exhaust valve or by turning the bowl up to 90 °.
Mixing, Mechanical Grinding, and Cavitation
The product inside the working vessel undergoes a multidirectional impact of working elements.
The low-speed radial agitator moves in reverse towards the bottom cutting head, delicately mixing the product, and provides maximum heat transfer from the walls of the vessel. The special shape of the vessel’s sides, the shape of the knives on the cutting head, and the angle of inclination provide in aggregate intensive vertical mixing and circulation of the product. The knife blades, passing through the mass of a product at a high speed, leave behind the cavitation cavities, thus the product is further disintegrated using the cavitation effect.
- Versatility — All operations are carried out successively in a single plant, without the need for pumping the product for further processing. The ProfiCut universal cooking plant replaces a grinder, mixer, emulsator, melter, pasteurizer, etc.
- The lowest possible energy cost of producing a batch
- Consistently high quality finished products from batch to batch
- Ease of product download, including whole blocks
- Product can be completely unloaded by tilting the bowl or through the exhaust valve
- Hygienically designed in accordance with the requirements of the FDA, easy to clean and maintain
