Categoria: Drive units
Produttore: Brabender

Intended use

Whether protein texturising, animal feed extrusion or kneading and mixing tasks, this powerful drive can be deployed for all essential applications in the food sector.

Combine the Lab-Station with the Twin Screw Extruders, and together with the docking station, also with the Single Screw Extruders and the Planetary Mixer P 600.

  • Modular: combinable with various measurement heads
  • Modular construction of complete systems
  • Rotational speed: highly accurate and constant
  • Also for use with Single Screw Extruder (with docking station)
  • Economy version available: Lab-Station EC

Modular and powerful – Equipped for food analysis

The powerful Lab-Station, with completely digital 16 kW motor, guarantees full torque of 400 Nm in the entire speed range of 0.2 to 275 rpm. The frequency control ensures that the speed is always highly accurate and constant, even under this load.

The drive is suitable for the following solutions:

  • Twin Screw Extruder 20/40
  • Single Screw Extruder 19/25
  • Planetary Mixer P 600
