Thompson 4000 Mixer Grinder


Thompson 4000 Mixer/Mincer


The construction of the Thompson 4000 is Robust and built to last. Manufactured from high quality Stainless Steel a strong structured framework supports a thick gauge mixing bowl and panels that are fully seam Welded both inside and outside the bowl.

The standard height machines incorporate a heavy gauge domed lid with an open grilled section for ingredients adding or viewing of the mix cycle. An ingredients or liquids pouring channel is also offered as an option.

The strong built mixing paddle manufactured from full stainless steel is standard with a choice of either Tinned or Stainless Steel grinding heads and feedscrews.

The 4000 has been designed and developed to the high standards of safety and finish demanded by CE / USDA and GS regulations.

All models specifically incorporate the "smart design" mixing bowl and paddle and are finished with smooth hygienic surfaces to panels and welds to achieve a clean bowl on product discharge and ease the cleaning down process at the end of production.

The transmission drives are independent direct drive design. No more oily greasy chains, no more continual maintenance of pulleys and belt drives.

Smooth, compact and quiet the robust drives are very efficient in transmitting maximum power from large kW motors - featuring a standard 2 speeds on the feedscrew drive with High Torque on low speed.

Both feedscrew and mixing drives have been engineered and developed over many years of research optimising RPM's and involving many varied processing applications. The performance of the Thompson 4000 speaks for itself.

Time and again sausage manufacturers have commented about the processing capabilities of the 4000 machines. Specifically designed paddle blade angles and configurations "smart design" maximise the product displacement and movement within corresponding mixing bowls that have been specifically contoured to accentuate the mixing action.

Within the reciprocating mixing paddle cycle, product is free tumbled from top to bottom to top and from corner to corner within the bowl to deliver a very homogeneous mix within a short time period.

Sausage mix is quickly yet gently mixed and consistently amalgamated and separated. The 4000 mixing cycle is controlled by a factory "pre-set" or easily adjusted reciprocating mix cycle that achieves a well distributed particle mix for coarse ground high definition products or emulsified evenly seasoned products.

The 56 size cutting head (standard on the Thompson 4000) or the optional 66 (8 5/8" diameter) cutting head deliver high production rates to a variety of products from hard tempered or flaked frozen meat to light fresh mince.

Fed by feedscrew designs that have been mastered and evolved over a long history the Thompson 4000 delivers a constant feed to a cutting head that itself is at the cutting edge of technology - delivering a clean cutting action.

The mixing bowl and cutting head features all combine to offer a very homogeneously mixed product with a high definition cut in short mix/grind cycles, therefore limiting heat rise to the product.


* Safety features on the 4000 Series are plentiful since the machine was also developed with safety as a premium concern, conforming to the high demands of local and overseas regulations.

* The safety interlocked lid is a standard feature on all machines incorporated with a maximum stop time on the machine cycle, limiting any possibility of human interference with rotating parts.

* A safety interlocked discharge guard is also a standard feature.

* A feedscrew ejector can be built into the machine to reduce the risk in removing knives, plates and feedscrews. (The feedscrew ejector is a standard feature of the CE designed machines.)

* Standard height machines are designed for ergonomic low load heights.

* On the raised machines (built for 200 LTR bin feed and discharge) the inspection step and optional platform are safety interlocked and offered with the lid or no lid option including the inspection mirror option.

* Operator control of the 4000 Series machines is very straightforward and user friendly.

* From the simple 3 push button machine as a standard - to optional degrees of control:

* Variable speed dial control / Programmable pre-select speed control / or full Programmable logic control.

* Gemini SystemsThe connection of two Machines to incorporate a continuous system or process.

* Connecting a Primary Machine - Grinder or Mixer Grinder - for the Primary hole plate grind, the ground product is then fed to the Secondary machine continuously for secondary processing.

* Product transfer is achieved by a safety interlocked Gemini transfer tube.

* Operating as a continuous grind operation - 1st grind to 2nd grind (even double cut on the secondary machine), it can also be used as a continuous sausage mix line - 1st grind to secondary mix and final grind process.

* The machines can also be as easily separated in the event that two separate processing applications may be required.

* The Thompson gemini system allows a 4000 Series machine to be connected in tandem with multiple machines including non Thompson machines.

* The Gemini system is an ideal solution for continuous grinding of one product at high volume production.
