GEA PowerGrind 200 and 280

The GEA PowerGrind 200 and the larger 280 model’s twin-screw design grinds fresh or frozen meat without the need for changing the cutting set or screw. It results in fewer fines and less dust and no crushed meat. Improvements include an auto-reverse screw that prevents blockage and a more robust construction. Faster infeed possibilities, hygienic and safety design that has earned DGUV approval and PLC control that facilitates standardisation thanks to automation within the production line are new features.

The double-screw configuration features a slowly rotating feeder worm that cuts frozen blocks rather than breaking them. This technique generates very little heat, so quality is maintained with no squashing or smearing.

The capacity for the 280 version is up to 30 t/h for fresh meat and 11 t/h for frozen. The product’s ability for uninterrupted continuous operation has been boosted with an infeed hopper designed to ensure loading meat blocks from meat trolleys or bins does not lead to stoppages relating to bridging.

Another boost to productivity is the reduced changeover times for the two-worm configuration. Reverse operation of the processing worm enables the cutting tool to be changed with ease even if the machine is loaded.

Cleaning is simplified thanks to a unique hinged lining that simplifies access to the channels and interior without the need for hoisting or supporting equipment. With the correct tools, the machine is ready for cleaning in 5 min. All joints in the processing areas are welded and rounded, and all surfaces are inclined to prevent water collecting. The drive zone and processing zone are fully separated, virtually eliminating the risk of contamination across zones.
