The high-performance cutting unit (X-CUT) with its rotating cutting blade and the large settling tank (X-TRACT) frees the medium from all contaminants and macerates it into a finely chopped, porridge-like medium – optimum treatment for the fermentation process in the fermenters. THE WANGEN X-UNIT also provides excellent ease of servicing, low wear costs and low energy consumption.

Benefits at a glance:

  • Low energy consumption coupled with maximum substrate yield
  • Durable, heavy-duty seal with in-house developed cooling and lubricating function for extremely high speeds and pressures (up to 6 bar medium pressure)
  • High-performance cutting unit with rotating cutting blade. Speeds of up to 3,000 rpm provide for excellent substrate digestion rates
  • Large settling tank with a large opening for the removal of foreign matter
  • Foreign matter is removed from the medium without additional energy consumption
  • The ultimate ease of servicing, thanks to rapid replacement of the cutting blade and sealing unit
  • Galvanised components for perfect, proven WANGEN-quality corrosion protection throughout
