In the food industry, soft separators are used to gently separate the solid and soft components of a wide range of basic products. To ensure consistent high quality, robust, reliable drive technology components are essential.

The BAADER group manufactures soft separators with varying performances that can be used to remove sinew from meat and poultry, to recover meat from fish, to extract pulp from fruit and vegetables, and to unpack food products. These feature a toothed chain powered by a geared motor to move a squeezing belt which transports the product to a perforated drum and squeezes the soft components through the perforation. The solid particles remain outside of the drum. An adjustable cylinder allows users to adjust the yield/quality ratio.

This method ensures maximum product quality and minimal temperature increase, ensuring the cell structure of the source product is not destroyed and that solid components are kept out of the end product during meat processing.

In several models, helical bevel geared motors from NORD Drivesystems serve as drive units. One example is the BAADER 605 type, which reaches a maximum performance of approximately 3,000kg per hour depending on the hole size in the perforated drum, the feeding type, the product, the feeding temperature and the selected pressure – thereby qualifying for continuous large volume processing. Users can choose a hole diameter of 1.3, 2, 3, 5 or 8mm in the perforated drum, with other diameters available on request.

BAADER uses the SK 9016.1, SK 9022.1 and SK 9042.1 gear unit types from NORD. With these, the housing is made from a single-piece casting with integrated bearing seats. The high-efficiency gear units with durable, wear-free gear teeth also contribute to high reliability during operation.
