Home Processing Equipment Mixer/Grinders

Commercial Mixer/Grinder

Capable of up to 146 lbs./min. with a 660 lb. hopper, the Commercial Mixer/Grinder efficiently homogenizes meat and plant products. It features thin paddles in the angle of ribbons, allowing it to strike a between the consistency of ribbon mixers with the throughput of paddle mixers, all while preserving the ability to mix forward and reverse. The Commercial Mixer/Grinder’s variable-speed motor and programmable timer also allow fast, slow, and automatic mixes. It is known for its ruggedness and reliability and is highly effective with any kind of meat fat to lean. Among other design considerations, the lid is equipped with a counterweight for ergonomic handling and an open-grid design for seasoning changes during operation.

Large Processor’s Mixer/Grinder

Capable of up to 146 lbs./min. with a 330 lb. hopper, the Large Processor’s Mixer/Grinder efficiently homogenizes meat and plant products by using thin paddles in the angles ribbons would normally take. As a hybrid between ribbon and paddle mixers, it strikes a balance between high homogeny and throughput while preserving the ability to mix forward and reverse. The Large Processor’s Mixer/Grinder’s variable speed motor and programmable timer also allow fast, slow, and auto mixes. It is a rugged solution for mixing any kind of meat, from fat to lean. An open-grid lid allows seasoning to be added during operation and the lid is counterbalanced for ergonomic-friendly operation.

Processor’s Mixer/Grinder

Capable of up to 120 lbs./min. with a 300 lb. hopper, the Processor’s Mixer/Grinder employs thin paddles in the angle of ribbons. As a hybrid between ribbon and paddle mixers, they strike a balance between high homogeny and throughput while preserving the ability to mix forward or reverse. The Processor’s Mixer/Grinder features a variable speed motor and programmable timer which allows fast, slow, and auto mixes. It is a rugged solution for mixing any kind of meat, or plant substitute, from fat to lean. The mixer rotates at a right angle to the auger to minimize its product exposure and avoid temperature buildup, preserving the presentability of the end-product. An open-grid lid allows seasoning to be added during operation, and the lid is counterbalanced for ergonomic accessibility.

Ribbon Mixer/Grinder

Ribbon Mixer-Grinders achieve the most homogenous mix possible at the cost of throughput (65 lbs./min instead of 120). The Ribbon Mixer/Grinder includes a 200 lb. hopper and is a rugged and reliable solution for mixing any kind of meat or plant substitute, from fat to lean. The ribbon spiral rotates at a right angle to the auger to minimize its product exposure and avoid temperature buildup, which helps preserve the presentability of the end-product. Streamlined cleaning features also help reduce the risk of cross-contamination between batches. The small-batch ribbon blender is at a convenient height for loading/unloading, and features tool-less plate changes.

Tabletop Mixer/Grinder

The Tabletop Mixer-Grinder is capable of up to 50 lbs/hr. with a 50 lb. hopper and is popular among grocery stores, restaurants, and small meat wholesalers. It’s small enough to fit on a tabletop, and like all Hollymatic equipment, can last a lifetime. It employs figure 8 mixing paddles for consistency and speed, and the all-stainless design with single-tool disassembly simplifies cleaning between batches. A perforated lid allows seasoning to be added during operation, and the lid is counterbalanced for ease-of-use and cleaning.

Coarse Grinder

The Course Grinder from Hollymatic is a first-pass solution for course and whole-muscle inputs. It can be attached to a pattymaker directly for course-grind end products or be coupled with a mixer-grinder for finer grinds or blended products. Capable of up to 6,500 lbs./hr. throughput, the Course Grinder comes stock with a 100-lb. hopper which can be used to feed product manually or account for overflow from a continuously-feeding conveyor. The motor can optionally be reduced to roughly half-speed and the hopper size can be doubled to facilitate integration with other equipment.

Butcher’s Mixer/Grinder

The Butcher’s Mixer-Grinder is an economical yet rugged solution for mixing any kind of meat, fat to lean. The figure-8 mixing paddles create smooth blends and the minimally-exposed augers keep the product from heating, which helps protect shelf-life and appeal. The Butcher’s Mixer/Grinder (180A from Hollymatic) is preferable to the Tabletop model when budget allows because of the larger hopper and greater simplicity when combining with a feed grinder to create a “Gemini System”.
Streamlined cleaning features also help reduce the risk of cross-contamination between batches. The stainless hopper is counter-weighted so it can be swiveled and easy-accessed or removed for cleaning. The mixing paddles, grinder head, and auger can also be removed using a single tool.
