Cake Breaker is an option available for the Sterling Series and can be installed
into the cake discharge area of any of the presses in the Sterling Series range.
It is designed to reduce the size of the cake produced by the press to a more
manageable size, which is sometimes required for downstream process
requirements. When leaving the press the cake is hot and therefore more easily
broken into smaller pieces. This in turn means the power demand and the wear on
the breaker are significantly lower than if an independent system is used later
in the process. The Rosedowns integral Cake Breaker is therefore ideal for
situations when smaller pieces of cake are necessary and provides a real benefit
for the investment. The Cake Breaker itself consists of a stationary grid and a
set of rotating anvils, which are driven by a Geared Motor Unit mounted on the
side of the press by a torque arm arrangement. The Grid is removable for
cleaning and maintenance without the need to disassemble the entire breaker
unit. The rotary shaft is supported by heavy duty bearings, which are also
mounted on the outside of the press. For further information contact the De Smet
