Finishing
main top
With over two hundred raw product applications, Brown finishers can provide a wide variety of end products, per application varying in texture, consistency, and pulp, puree, and juice solids to meet a specific requirement.

Separation of liquids and solids can be accomplished using one or more of the various finisher designs  and options offered by Brown.

Brown features two basic finisher designs: paddle finishers and screw finishers. These machines are called many things depending upon the function being performed by that machine at that position on the processing line.

HOW THEY WORK

PADDLE MACHINES:

Our Model 202 paddle machine called an extractor, pulper, finisher, separator, de-water, classifier, scalper and refiner.

Picture in your mind the following to see how these paddle machines work. The palm of your left hand is faced up and is a screen. Your right hand picks up some chopped fruit and puts it on the left hand screen. The right hand then rubs in a circle on the left hand screen trying to press everything above the screen through the screen to make a puree. This puree is thick with high solids and gives your best "yields". The material that will not go through the screen such as seeds, defects, or hard materials is pushed off the edge of the screen to become "pomace" or waste. This waste can have a very low moisture level as low as 60% to 70% moisture as with tomato pomace and is dryer than screw finisher pomace from the same raw material.

SCREW MACHINES:

Our Model 2503 Series 2507 screw machine is called an extractor, pulper, finisher, separator, de-waterer, classifier, scalper, presse and refiner.

Picture in your mind the following to see how these screw machines work. The palm of your left hand is faced up and is a screen. Your right hand picks up some chopped fruit and holds it in your right fist over the left hand screen. The right hand then squeezes the fist so that the juice or squeezed liquid leaves the right hand fist and drops down on to and through the left hand screen making a juice of low solids puree. This juice is thin with lower solids and gives lower "yields". The material that is still in the right fist such as seeds, defects, fiber or hard materials is pushed off the edge of the screen to become "pomace" or waste. This waste can have a low moisture level as low as 70% to 80% moisture as with tomato pomace and is wetter than paddle finisher pomace from the same raw material.
