Discover Smaller Footprint Production Lines (For Custom Block & Barrel Handling)

Need to reduce the size of your blocks & barrels, without sacrificing all of your floor space?  KOSS Sanitary, Custom Grinders can help with that.  Other lines can be bulky, involving multiple steps and machines…KOSS Grinders can extrude barrels, directly into cookers or onto conveyors if desired.

Sick of harping?

Sick of harping on the same old issues when cutting your cheese barrels?  Cutting barrels can pose an enormous safety risk.  All of those moving parts can be an accident waiting to happen, and securing the area surrounding cutting machinery takes up a significant amount of space.  Instead of cutting product to reduce size, try a KOSS Grinder, or view some of our equipment tests in our Green Bay, WI manufacturing plant.  We’ve tested a variety of cheeses, in Grinders ranging from lab- to production-sized.  View some of our videos in the playlist below.  Can you see your product in a KOSS Custom Grinder?

Free up floor space!

Koss Industrial, Inc. believes your space is valuable, so why waste it?  Our production lines are custom designed to suit your space – whether you have limited floor space, or a height restriction, KOSS will find a way if there’s one to be found.

Sized to suit you, the biggest constraint on time for KOSS Grinders is load (feed) time…the standard “speed problem” is that our machines grind faster than they can be loaded.

Strong & sanitary, innovation is the name of our game – call us at 1.800.844.6261 and find out more about the Custom Grinder KOSS would recommend for your application!

11GS & 11GT Grinders by KOSS

11GS Grinder by KOSS.  Twin- or single-screw grinders (std. 20-25hp) feature interchangeable extrusion screens – easily change hole diameter per product needs – and as your needs & methods evolve, change the screen instead of the machine!

11G Grinder Models are available in Single Screw (11GS) or Twin Screw (11GT) styles – 1 or 2 augers (consider hooked flights for a more aggressive action),  grind 40lb product in 21 seconds (11GS approximation, varies by product, temperature, speed, etc.).

A standard CIP-able 11GS Grinder (1900lbs, crated = 2500lbs, 99″H x 50″W x 86″L) typically features: a 20 HP Motor, casters (for mobility), a frame-mounted strainer basket (for small parts during dissassembly), safe & easy faceplate removal (safely attached via shackle pin to a lifting chain on a pivoting jib crane arm), quick and safe faceplate & auger removal tools have designated homes right on the frame (no need to hunt for the right size wrench AND greatly reduce the risk of marring inside product contact surfaces).

As a homemaker, I enjoy cooking up a storm in the kitchen each morning and evening to deliver home-cooked meals to my loving husband and kids. Apple butter pancakes and sausages links with freshly squeezed orange juice is a hearty favorite among my family for breakfast and orange, honey-glazed pork chops with mashed potatoes and green beans takes the gold for dinner.

I love to cook so much, I’m always asking for specialty cookware for my birthday and other celebratory occasions. Last Christmas I got a meat grinder so I could make juicy, mouthwatering hamburgers for holiday cookouts and this year for my birthday I am hoping to get a high-end food processor to finely chop or thoroughly combine ingredients in all of my recipes.
