New Paragon™ Sheeters improve chip & tortilla weight control
Oven-mounted or portable, Heat and Control’s new Paragon™ Sheeter delivers precise piece weight control of corn tortillas and chips.
Up to 2” thick stainless steel side frames support large diameter differential speed rolls for consistently uniform product piece weight. Only Paragon Sheeters have a hinged rear roll support that maintains precise roll gap and alignment over years of service. Paragon's unique roll-contoured discharge conveyor eliminates product fold-overs and stress fractures.
Paragon's direct drives eliminate the maintenance required for drive chains and belts. For easier service, rolls and drives can be removed in minutes.
Designed as an upgrade for small oven-mounted sheeters, the 22.5” wide Paragon Sheeter uses 8-1/2” diameter rolls powered by independent direct drives. It is also available with a portable open support frame, which greatly simplifies cleaning.
For high capacity production, the 39” wide Paragon Sheeter uses 12-1/2” diameter rolls. Front stripping wire tension, cutter and brush pressure, infeed side-saddles and discharge conveyor height are all pneumatically controlled.
Paragon™ sheeters are also available with a patent-pending system that automatically adjusts the roll gap to maintain a specific product piece weight, compensating for changes in masa moisture and density.
With over 30 offices worldwide, Heat and Control provides the latest processing and packaging technology with local project management, training, spare parts and technical support.
