The SC-940/NextGen distinguishes itself by delivering dryer product and a higher capacity, saves energy (20%) and is easy to clean. This centrifuge has an exceptionally open design with optimal accessibility for cleaning and maintenance. The drum has a completely smooth inner surface without a central axle or other parts which could damage the product. The patented drive with magnetic bearing support delivers steady and smooth operation in all circumstances. It is the ideal machine for carefully preparing products in order to meet the high demands of American consumers.
Sal Tedesco, SunnySide:
Why did I buy a Sormac centrifuge?
I started my career in 1979 cutting lettuce using a batch dryer from Brothers out of California, and for our batch process we still use those type dryers. But when we decided to install
continuous processing lettuce lines, we made a decision to try a Sormac.
The installation went very smoothly. We increased our drying quality and our productivity. We have been operating it for about 6 months with near zero challenges, and with the very few challenges we have had, the service attention was outstanding to say the least.
From my perspective, the Sormac dryer has been an outstanding choice. I would highly recommend this machine to anyone looking for a continuous drying system.
The SC-940NextGen has several unique aspects:
- Higher capacity
The introduction of new motors has enabled the machine to accelerate and decelerate faster and run at a higher speed. This has resulted in a shorter and more efficient cycle with dryer product, thus increasing the production capacity.
- Energy savings
The energy released while decelerating the drum is fed back into the grid. In practice, this enables energy savings of up to 20%.
- Better hygiene, easy cleaning
The open design and improved accessibility has made the machine easier to maintain and to clean.
- Unbalance control
The risk of unbalance is inherent in all centrifuges. The SC-940NextGen has a patented unbalance control system that detects unbalance in good time and corrects it, leading to uniform drying results.
- Simple construction
The simple configuration and robust drive with magnetic bearing support ensure reliable operation. The smooth interior of the drum and the absence of a central shaft minimise the risk of the product being damaged.
