The Bauermeister Beater Blade Mill SMM is used for the grinding of products with a high fat content e.g. Cocoa nibs, nuts or other oilseeds.
The product is fed into the grinding chamber at a controlled rate, by means of a dosing screw. High speed rotating blades break the product down to the required particle size and the high fat content ensures conversion into a pumpable mass with optimal flow properties. The fineness of the finished product is determined by the mesh size of an integral, annular sieve, through which the mass flows on its way to the exit of the mill. The shell and base of the grinding chamber are of jacketed design, to facilitate the processing of product under controlled conditions of operation; hot or cold water is circulated, as appropriate, to maintain a constant temperature. The moisture content is also reduced during the grinding process.
