From the designing revision of the 6-augers moulder mod. FS200, a moulding machine with the highest performances, called FS 200/N, was born in Almac company.
The Italian company, located in Modena, decided to dedicate this machine to the big dairy industries.
In fact, the hourly output developed by this machine makes this unit absolutely the most performing one among the drum-moulders offered on the market.
The moulding machine mod. FS 200/N has been conceived for reaching productions even of the 70% higher than the output of a 4-augers machine and this thanks to the following modifications:
- Moulding drum increasing from 220 mm to 240 mm and this allows more cavities to be perforated on the circumference.
- Uniform distribution of the cavities on the moulding drum with a cutting insert piece composed by three openings.
The product typology obtainable by the 6-augers moulder mod. FS 200/N is the following one:
• FIOR DI LATTE
• PIZZA CHEESE (variable weight from 200 to 3500 gr)
having variable weights from 0,5 gr. to 1000 gr. and a high moisture content.
The machine, fed by a continuous stretcher, receives the pasta filata that, introduced into the moulder hopper, it’s transported near the moulding drum by means of the 6 counter-rotating augers, whose speed is adjusted according to the desired product weight.
During this phase, pasta temperature is kept constant thanks to a water double jacket heated by electrical heating elements and surrounding the whole machine body. The pushing action made by the augers on pasta surface is always constant and delicate, thanks to the machine body equipped with 6 counter-rotating augers that, by means of a common gear box, are operated by just one motorization. This allows the advantage to transfer a uniform speed to all the 6 augers, thus a pasta filata feeding identical on the whole moulding drum length.
As for the high productions that the moulding machine mod. FS 200/N can offer, please find herein after an indicative table showing the output of a moulding machine for a 125 gr mozzarella using a moulding drum mod. TS 200 having a cavity standard diameter of 240 mm:
Cavities (No.) - 125 GR Cheese Drum (Kg/REV.) - Drumspeed (RPM) - Output (Kg/h)
135 | 16,875 | 0,8 | 810
135 | 16,875 | 2 | 2025
135 | 16,875 | 2,5 | 2531
135 | 16,875 | 3 | 3037
135 | 16,875 | 4 | 4050
Considering the drum optimal speed ranging from 2 to 2,5 rpm, it will be possible to get very high outputs than those obtained by a 4-augers machine, quantified at about the 100% more.
Anyway, it’s necessary to feed this moulding machine in a suitable way but, comparing the same feeding stretchers, with a 6-augers machine it will be possible to work at much lower speeds than a 4-augers machine and this will allow a better cheese moulding and a more bright dough to be obtained.
WORKING CYCLE PROGRAMMING AND AUTOMATION
This particular optional implies the equipping of an electronic inverter instead of the mechanical speed variator and a PLC (Programmable Logic Controller).
