Kibbler | KEK

KEK Kibbler heavy duty Lump Breaker Mills, are designed to work in conjunction with other KEK mills or as a stand-alone mill in their own right. They are a solution for effective and quick size reduction.

The construction of Kemutec KEK Kibblers makes their performance strong and robust. The Kibbler’s specialist design allows it to demolish large lumps of material up to 150mm and grind them down to 2-3mm, for further processing. To ensure a consistent particle size, the Kibbler also classifies material through a built-in screen.

In order to support the customer and to optimise their process, the Kibbler is customised on a project-by-project basis.

How the Kibbler Works

Size reduction takes place through a combination of impact, crushing, cutting and abrasion. Operating at a gentle speed, the heavy-duty beater sweeps product against the contoured grinding screen.

Available with cantilever grinding beaters, KEK Kibblers are ideal for food, pharmaceuticals and fine chemical applications. Their non-drive end access door opens and closes rapidly, for easier and quicker screen changes. This design offers maximum hygiene and simple cleaning.

Applications

  • Deagglomeration – breaking soft to medium hard agglomerates
  • Pre-Breaking – to sufficiently mill medium or hard material, the Kibbler can pre-grind and break large lumps
  • Coarse Grinding – to reduce large and course lumps into a size that is less than 3mm

Useful Applications for the KEK Kibbler

KEK Kibblers are versatile, heavy-duty grinders and pre-breakers. Their typical applications reflect this and include:

Deagglomeration  Breaking of soft to medium hard agglomerates in the feed material.

Pre-Breaking  Pre-grinding of larger lumps of medium-hard material to a milled size that can then be further reduced to a powder in fine grinders.

Coarse Grinding  Grinding of large lumps of medium-hard materials to less than 3mm pieces.

Specific to Food, Applications can Include

  • Delumping of general food ingredients after discharge from a Bulk Bag – typically mount a Kibbler on the discharge of a Flomat Bag Discharge station
    • Alternatively the same application, but mounted under a sack-tip opening station
  • Biscuit and Cookie Rework – especially good for making biscuit sprinkles for ice-cream and dessert toppings
  • Chocolate Rework – grinds larger lumps down into smaller gratings for easier melting
  • Popcorn Grinding – reduces popcorn to smaller size to include in cereal bars
