|20140091162||MATERIAL REDUCTION APPARATUS AND METHODS OF USE - A material reduction apparatuses and methods suitable for performing cutting operations on a variety of materials, including food and nonfood products. The apparatus includes a machine having a cutting head, an impeller adapted for rotation within the cutting head about an axis thereof, means disposed on the cutting head for reducing the size of a material forced therethrough by the impeller, and an electric motor unit disposed in-line with the axis of the impeller. The electric motor unit supports the cutting head and impeller and has a shaft coupled to the impeller to rotate the impeller within the cutting head. The apparatus further includes means physically coupled to the electric motor unit for supporting the machine within a duct in which the machine is entirely enclosed. The supporting means includes arms that extend from the electric motor unit.||04-03-2014|
|20130276604||METHODS AND EQUIPMENT FOR CUTTING FOOD PRODUCTS - Knife assemblies and methods therefor that are adapted to be used with a cutting apparatus capable of producing a variety of shaped food products having large amplitudes, for example, sliced, shredded, and strip-cut food products. The knife assembly is adapted for cutting food product includes a knife having a corrugated shape to produce a large-amplitude food product slice having a periodic shape and at least one julienne tab metallurgically joined to the knife adapted to cut the food product slice into strips.||10-24-2013|
|20100263510||APPARATUS FOR CUTTING FOOD PRODUCT - Method and apparatus for reducing food products. The apparatus includes a casing, an impeller adapted for rotation within the casing, and a cutting device. The casing has axial and circumferential openings for product entering and exiting, respectively, the casing. The impeller includes a drum, paddles mounted to the drum, and pockets defined by and between adjacent pairs of paddles that are radially aligned with the circumferential opening of the casing as each pocket travels past the circumferential opening. The cutting device includes a knife disposed at the circumferential opening of the casing and oriented perpendicular to the axis of the impeller. The knife lies on a sector of the casing and has a cutting edge located within an interior of the casing so that the knife extends into the path of the paddles and passes through relief slots defined in the paddles as the impeller rotates.||10-21-2010|
|20100044002||INDUCTION FURNACE WITH GAS DIFFUSER AND CRUCIBLE AND METHOD THEREFOR - A furnace, a crucible for such a furnace, and a method for preparing and using the crucible. The crucible is formed of a nonmetallic refractory material to have side walls, a base wall, an opening in the base wall, and an interior cavity. A particulate refractory material is packed beneath the base wall and around the side walls of the crucible, and a gas diffuser is positioned beneath the crucible. A solid sintered porous barrier is formed within the opening in the base wall of the crucible and between the gas diffuser and the interior cavity of the crucible. The porous barrier is sufficiently porous to enable a gas exiting the diffuser to flow therethrough and enter the interior cavity of the crucible.||02-25-2010|
