Breaking Up Frozen Food Blocks.

Frozen Fruit, Vegetables and Meat

This system effectively handles blocks of frozen products prior to processing into individual pieces

The Background:

ClusterBusters are a Cox & Plant innovation that solves one of the biggest challenges facing the frozen food industry: The ability to process individual products.

The Challenge:

If you work in frozen food, you’ll understand how difficult it is to present a high quality product to your customers. The challenge lies in not just ensuring that all of your products receive the same standard of processing, but also in striving to attain the best possible presentation without compromising on your products’ integrity during the storage and shipping process.

In short – if your customer has to resort to hacking away at a jagged block of frozen peas; this is not the customer experience we are looking for.


Our Solution:

We developed the ClusterBuster. This highly efficient system is critical to the effective handling of block frozen products prior to processing. It essentially breaks down frozen blocks of products into individual pieces, allowing for more accurate weighing and inspecting, and more effective downstream processing.

The Cluster Buster can be adapted to suit the needs of any product from any industry as the distance between spokes and the spoke design can be adjusted according to the required product size. They can be modified to include variable speed and ATEX options. Numerous mounting possibilities are available, and they can be customised with a selection of inlet and outlet options.

Adjustable Size Setting

All Cluster Buster drums are mounted on rails which allows the option to adjust the aperture to suit the requirements of your production line. For instance, if your SKU’s included frozen peas, frozen carrots, frozen sweetcorn and frozen onions you would require a Cluster Buster to separate these into IQF (Instant Quick Frozen) pieces, however when running floret products such as cauliflower and broccoli the Cluster Buster drums will need to elevated out of the product stream

The ClusterBuster can be adapted to suit the needs of any product from any industry. So whether you work with seafood, chicken, peas or raspberries, we can design and install a ClusterBuster that will revolutionise your production line.
