Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR SEPARATING FOOD PRODUCT FROM CONVEYOR BELT
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ DE SÉPARATION D'UN PRODUIT ALIMENTAIRE D'UNE BANDE TRANSPORTEUSE
Abstract:
(EN) A food production apparatus includes a conveyor belt (105) and a wire scraper (115). The conveyor belt (105) supports and transports a food product (100-102). The wire scraper (115) includes a wire (160) and a motor (130). The wire (160) is located above and extends across the conveyor belt (105) to temporarily separate the food product (100-102) from the conveyor belt (105). Operation of the motor (130) causes the wire (160) to continuously cycle back and forth between 1) movement in a first direction (310) above and across the conveyor belt (105) and 2) movement in a second opposite direction (311) above and across the conveyor belt (105).
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil de production d'aliments comprenant une bande transporteuse (105) et un racleur à fil (115). La bande transporteuse (105) supporte et transporte un produit alimentaire (100-102). Le racleur à fil (115) comprend un fil (160) et un moteur (130). Le fil (160) est situé au-dessus et s'étend à travers la bande transporteuse (105) pour séparer temporairement le produit alimentaire (100-102) de la bande transporteuse (105). Le fonctionnement du moteur (130) amène le fil (160) à effectuer en continu un mouvement de va-et-vient entre 1) un mouvement dans une première direction (310) au-dessus et à travers la bande transporteuse (105) et 2) un mouvement dans une seconde direction opposée (311) au-dessus et à travers la bande transporteuse (105).
