URSCHEL Laboratories, represented by Heat & Control , has introduced the new DiversaCut 2110 dicer.
Featuring a compact cutting zone design that creates a smooth transition of product flow, the DiversaCut 2110 dicer occupies less floor space while offering high production capacity to produce slices, dices and strip cuts for a wide range of products.
Accepting input product up to 254mm in any dimension, the dicer produces flat slices from 1.6mm to 25.4mm, strips from 3.2mm to 76.2mm and dices from 3.2mm to 25.4mm.
The DiversaCut 2110 dicer's stainless steel construction promotes sanitation and proves itself durable in rugged production environments.
Hinged access panels improve ergonomics and simplify washdown and maintenance. In addition, all lubrication points are located on the exterior of the machine to further ease routine maintenance.
Specifically designed and manufactured to accept a wide range of products, the DiversaCut 2110 dicer has the power to handle tough jobs.
Urschel makes the dicer available with a stainless steel motor in either a 5hp (3.7kW) variable frequency drive (VFD) or across-the-line/direct-on-line starting in a 5 or 10hp (3.7 or 7.5kW) to cater to the specific needs of individual processors.
On the DiversaCut 2110 dicer, product is delivered via a feed hopper to a rotating impeller. Centrifugal force holds the product inside the case as the impeller paddles carry the product past the slicing knife.
An adjustable case gate on the impeller case allows product to move outward across the edge of the slicing knife. The distance between the edge of the slice gate and the slicing knife edge determines the slice thickness.
As the slices emerge, they are guided between the slicing knife and stripper plate before entering circular knives where they are cut into strips. The strips pass directly into the crosscut knives, which make the final cut.
