U.S.D.A., Dairy Division Accepted
The Affinity Dicer is the largest cheese dicer Urschel manufactures. This heavy-duty dicer delivers a sanitary design, maximized output, and precision cuts. The robust machine specializes in difficult-to-cut products such as cheese, imitation cheese, soft meats, candied fruits, cold temperature applications, and products with high-fat content. The feed roll and feed drum offer additional assistance transitioning product throughout the cutting zone. Optional outboard bearing supports cutting spindles to assist with heavy-duty applications. Other heavy-duty parts are also available. Sanitary, stainless steel design. Food zone is completely separate from mechanical zone. Rounded tube frame limits microbial surface area and promotes self-draining. The dicer provides 2- or 3-dimensional cutting by adjusting the slice thickness, crosscut, and circular knife spindles for a full range of dices, crumbles/granulations, or strips. Large product infeed combined with a powerful 25 HP (18 kW) motor achieves maximum capacity.
The Affinity accepts a wide range of infeed products in different shapes and sizes. The Affinity is available in two different models: one model features acceptance by the U.S.D.A., Dairy Division; the other model features a built-in conveyor feed chute but is not accepted by the U.S.D.A.
