Bauermeister Flakers operate with a roll pressure which is infinitely variable between 50 and 80 bar. This pressure is exerted by a combination of hydraulic pump and power cylinders, which are controlled from the Flaker control panel. A relief system prevents serious damage to the roll faces from foreign material within the feed product. The patented Bauermeister overflow system at the roller edges significantly increases runtime between maintenance intervals for regrinding of rollers (up to 5000 h). The individual throughput ratings of a Flaker vary with product characteristics as well as the required flake thickness.
A Bauermeister Flaker machine stand is equipped with an aspiration duct enabling a de-dusting of the flaking chamber. Product feeding stops automatically upon machine shutdown and starts automatically again when the machine is started. Easily removable drive covers allow the inspection and maintenance of the bearing assemblies, the hydraulic cylinder, and the V-belt drives. Level sensors indicate a possible interruption in the feed to release the pressure of the rolls to avoid the rolls from making contact and running metal-to-metal.
Bauermeister also delivers grinding and classifying systems for the production of oilseed flour and grits.
