The Gericke Nibblers have been used in many different industries such as chemical and food for efficient lump breaking and deagglomeration. The new GNB model offers maximum access for inspection and cleaning and adds metal-to-metal contact detection as a perfect feature to increase process safety.
The Gericke Nibbler is a coarse grinder and pre-breaker for the size reduction in a broad range of applications. It is used for the deagglomeration, rework and breaking down/size reduction of lumpy or frozen products.
To further increase the usability of this device, Gericke has completely redesigned the housing and the screen. It gives now even better access to all areas of the equipment for inspection and cleaning. For maximum comfort, the Nibbler is also available in an extractable version.
Gericke’s experience with real-time diagnostic of its equipment also brings metal-to-metal contact detection to this device. If a contact is detected between the basket and the paddles, a signal is sent to the control system to isolate power to the drive motor. This helps to protect the process equipment and the products and significantly increases production safety.
