The PB4 Pre-Breaker is a heavy-duty machine designed for rapid size reduction of whole fallen animals, condemned carcasses, green bone etc. and similar materials in the rendering industry.
The cutting edges inside the machine are formed from a specific hard facing grade of steel. The machine operates on the principle of a shearing action to rapidly process high volumes of material.
PB4 Pre-Breakers can be supplied as bareshaft machines (as per image this page) or as a complete turnkey item, including the drive motor, gearbox, couplings and baseframe. If processing of whole large animals is desired, the use of the larger PB6 Pre-Breaker should be considered.
In addition to the meat industry, PB4 machines have successfully been used for size reduction of:
Processing capacity of up to 8,000kg per hour (dependent on material)
Use of standard orifice plates enables strict control of output material size
All cutting edges are ground from a unique hard facing steel and are serviceable
Self-aligning spherical roller bearings in fully sealed housings at each end
Turnkey solutions supplied with all necessary guarding and safety features
Max Processing Capacity
Up to 8,000 kg per hour (dependant on material)
1,850kg (bareshift machine) 3,400kg (with standard base and drive components)
