Thompson Machinery Model 5000 Meat Mixer Grinder

Thompson Machinery Model 5000 Meat Mixer Grinder



The Thompson 5000 Mixer Grinder is a step up from the highly successful Thompson 4000 Series Mixer Grinder. The unique characteristics of a right-angle feed screw to the mixing bowl reduces the length of feed screw and helps to achieve a similar, high capacity production output rate like the Thompson 6000 Series Mixer Grinder.
The Thompson 5000 Mixer Grinder is a heavy duty industrial machine designed specifically for large volume mixing and grinding. The Thompson 5000 Mixer Grinder is powered by high performance motors through 2 independent helical reduction gear units.
The Thompson 5000 Mixer Grinder has the option of a “Unique Product Discharge Chute” that enables the mixing bowl to be emptied without passing through the feed screw and cutting system. Please call for more details if this interest you.
Our high efficiency cutting system is available on our Thompson mixer grinders as an option which increases production output rate by up to 100%.
• Primary cut through a ½” hole plate, up to 16,000 lbs per hour. Approximately 265 lbs per minute.
• Secondary cut through 3/16th hole plate up to 14,000 lbs per hour. Approximately 230 lbs per minute.
The labor savings achieved from these remarkable mixer - grinders, along with the high quality of the cut, produces an outstanding production savings when compared with similar competitor’s machines.
