Serving the Tea Industry since 1968 !

NECESSITY:
In the process of tea manufacture when the green leaves are converted into black tea or made tea, one can observe that there exists various size of particles. Out of bulk, many of them do not cover marketable sizes. Those after sorting out require breaking and then re-sorting. So, for breaking these bulks Andrews Tea Breaker is necessary.

UTILITY:
A breaker when does not damage the quality, stretch the surface of the particles, can be adjusted instantly according to the required result, is called a"Good Breaker"."Ketco"tea breaker possesses these qualities.

DESIGN:
Designed unequally that it does not crush the teas rather the tea passes through a limited gap and gets squeezed, in the process breaks the tea lumps by pressure. Hence, teas do not GREY. Rollers can be adjusted while the machine is running by an operating a lever provided as required.

PROVISION FOR CONVEYOR DRIVE:
The feeding should be done by a conveyor. A conveyor drive Roller is provided with the machine. Feeding should be steady and continuous. Hand-feeding is never efficient.

ROLLERS:
Rollers are designed to have flutes. These are commonly used in two designs for dealing with different types of teas i.e. orthodox, C.T.C. and their various grades. There are two types that are commonly used, 8 fluted and 16 fluted Rollers.

Salient Features

  • It does not rub or crush the teas. Hence the bloom remains unaffected.
  • It does not "GREY" the teas.
  • Operating lever for adjustments of rollers has a wide scope.
  • Rollers can be adjusted even when the machine is running.
  • Separate drive is not required for a feed conveyor as it is provided with the machine.
