Chopper/Blender
Chopper/Blender
Overview
Sturdy Construction
The JBT Chopper/Blender is a versatile machine that
quickly reduces frozen product to a flow able or pumpable
condition. No longer must drums of frozen juice thaw
for hours with resulting loss of quality. Instead, frozen
concentrate, single strength juice or pulp can be processed
soon after it is removed from the cold room. A fifty-five gallon
drum of frozen 45° Brix concentrate can be processed
in about 2½ minutes. Fifty-five gallons of frozen single
strength juice can be crushed in approximately 4 minutes
and a five gallon pail of frozen pulp can be processed in
approximately 2 minutes. Containers of various sizes and
shapes, up to and including fifty-five gallon drums, can be
accommodated by the Chopper/Blender.
The Chopper/Blender tank is 3' 9" in diameter and 5'
deep with a capacity of 300 gallons. The tank and all
other contact parts are stainless steel. The tank bottom is
conical to permit complete draining. The Chopper/Blender
is carefully designed to provide long life and, efficient
service. The heavy duty chopper assembly consists of a 3"
diameter shaft with spiral cutter blades and is driven by a
5 hp totally enclosed, 1800 rpm, 3 phase motor through a
200 to 1 speed reducer.

Speed reducer
A 4' high, 13.9 cubic feet hot water jacket around the
lower portion and bottom of the Chopper/Blender tank
complements the specially designed spiral blade. This
combination rapidly chips and warms the product so that a
flowable state is reached in a short time. In addition, a 1.9
cubic feet heating jacket lines the underside of the intake
chute to assist in melting the product. The unique, heavyduty spiral blade rapidly chips away frozen product for fast
conversion to a flowable mixture. To further facilitate rapid
melting, baffles below the spiral blade assist in thoroughly
mixing the product.
