Title: DEVICE FOR CHOPPING FOOD
Abstract:
The invention relates to a device for chopping food, comprising a cutting means (10) and a pressure housing (20) having a cylindrical drum wall (30). The pressure housing (20) is formed on a first end section (21a) having an inlet opening (22) for the food, and a screw conveyor (40) is mounted rotatably in the pressure housing (20), which screw conveyor has a plurality of screw chambers (42) separated from one another by at least one screw flight (41). The cutting means (10) is formed by a drum wall section (31), in which a plurality of cutting openings (32) are arranged, and a section (43) of the at least one screw flight (41) passing over the cutting openings (32), and the pressure housing (20) has a closure element (23) having a discharge opening (24) on a second end section (21b) opposite the first end section (21a). The aim of the invention is to provide a device for chopping food which sets the internal pressure of the food in the pressure housing (20) by self-regulation. The aim is achieved according to the invention in that the discharge opening (24) can be closed by means of a pressure-loaded closure flap (25).
