SBX Master™ Preconditioner

  • Benefits

    The SBX Master™Preconditioner mixes, heats and hydrates ingredients for processing in a Baker Perkins SBX Master™ Extruder. Cooking times and mechanical shear energy in the extruder are reduced, which widens the range of products that can be made on the extruder and maximizes both output and quality. Hygienic design and a wash-in-place spray bar reduce cleaning and changeover times.

    Increased Process Capability

    High-speed mixing and hydration take place in separate chambers, enabling the time and intensity of each to be controlled independently. The high-intensity mixing aerates the product which assists rapid hydration, while multiple feed ports give the flexibility to add ingredients at various points.

    Improved Product Quality

    Pelletized and half-products are cooked more quickly, allowing increased cooling time and preventing unwanted expansion, while the texture of protein-based products is improved by reduced mechanical shear energy.

    Hygienic Operation

    Unrestricted access to both chambers and an optional manually-installed water spray bar ensure cleaning is both quick and thorough. The vessel is fully sealed against steam and product leakage and the shafts are easily removable for additional cleaning.

    Materials of construction

    • Product contact parts – 316 Stainless Steel
    • Non contact part – 304 Stainless Steel

    Range

    • 280 - for use with SBX Master™ 50 - 65
    • 800 - for use with SBX Master™ 80-100
    • 1210 - for use with SBX Master™ 125

    Drives

    High efficiency direct drive motors sealed to IP66 for wash-down protection. Keyless shaft for easy maintenance.

    Wash Bar

    Replaces process insert when required for automatic pre-wash cycle (lid closed) prior to manual cleaning. Includes shaft rotation / reversing and dwell phases.

    Transfer Chute

    Open transfer chute is easy to clean and prevents aeration of the product to maintain bulk density.

    Top Cover

    Interlocked top cover with ‘request to enter’ and gas struts for easy lifting. Allows unrestricted access to chambers for cleaning.

    Ports

    Multiple feed ports for process flexibility. Inlet and outlet at the same end plus vee-wheel mounting for easy bypass.

    Shaft Assembles

    Bolted assemblies allow paddle configuration to be easily changed. Quick release compression seals allow easy removal for cleaning and maintenance.

    Chambers

    Angled at 45º to provide cleaning access to bottom chamber. Sealed to avoid steam and product leakage.

    Dual chambers separate process functions:

    • High speed mixing with steam in upper chamber minimises agglomerates
    • Low speed conveying in lower chamber with variable residence time for hydration
