Rotary de-icer

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #5660340.

A rotary de-icer for separating ice particles from comestible products covered with such particles, comprises a perforate drum mounted on an upstanding frame for rotation about a central axis of the drum, the drum having a cylindrical side wall comprising an assembly of elements parallel to the central axis and extending between opposing ends of the drum. The elements are mutually spaced apart to define uniform gaps through which separated ice particles fall by gravity upon being tumbled during drum rotation causing the ice-covered products to impact against the drum side wall elements which have continuous arcuate surfaces facing inwardly of the drum presenting a plurality of curved surfaces.
