Uneven material distribution in the flaking chamber is a well-known problem of knife ring flaker systems. As a result, the total installed knife length cannot always be used evenly. This causes uneven wear of the flaker components responsible for the cutting conditions and flake quality.
The newly developed FlowOptimizer solves this problem using “3D distribution technology”. This ensures the optimum material distribution over the complete knife ring width (knife length) and the entire knife ring circumference.
The FlowOptimizer is a special distribution rotor integrated into the flaking chamber. The chips entering the inner chambers of the distribution rotor, are set into rotation, and are then guided via centrifugal forces through the openings at the front and rear of the system, towards the main rotor.
This achieves optimum material distribution in the flaking chamber, allowing the uniform use of the total installed knife length.
