URSCHEL UNVEILS NEW SPRINT 2™ DICER AT PACK EXPO
Urschel introduces the new Sprint 2™ Dicer at Pack Expo Booth 7335 in the Processing Zone section. The Sprint 2 offers a convenient solution for food processors seeking to replace their existing Models G, G-A, GK-A, H, or H-A Dicers. Other machines on display include the Affinity® Dicer, the E TranSlicer® Cutter, and the M6 Dicer.
“This new dicer delivers on several levels. The different cutting and motor options make this an excellent dicer for any food processor. The Sprint 2 is an intelligent cutting solution for processors wanting to replace any of the Model G or H series of Urschel dicers. Swapping out a G or H with a Sprint 2 is a smooth transition, and adds efficiency and new technology to an existing line,” according to Tim O'Brien, Vice President, Sales.
The latest addition to the Urschel line of dicers, the Sprint 2 builds on the technology of the DiversaCut Sprint® Dicer combined with the footprint and similar infeed/discharge heights of the longstanding Model G. Accepting an infeed product up to 6.5" (165.1 mm) in any dimension, the dicer offers a stainless steel sanitary design throughout with the food zone completely isolated from the mechanical zone.
The Sprint 2 produces a full complement of dices, slices, strips, and granulations. The dicer delivers cutting solutions across food processing industries including vegetables, fruits, meats, seafood, candy, and bakery/snack products. Key standard components involve a new dial-in slice knob to lock-in close tolerances; a compact cutting zone that smoothly transitions cut product to attain increased cut quality; cutting parts can be easily removed and replaced; lubrication points fully accessible on the exterior of the machine. Motor options include: 1.5 HP (1.1 kW) or 3 HP (2.2 kW) equipped with soft start, or 3 HP (2.2 kW) equipped with VFD (variable frequency drive). Available options entail a cost-saving insert slicing knife and L-shaped handles that allow removal of slice gate without the use of additional tools.
