Beater Shaft

Located in the center of the freezing cylinder, the beater shaft supports the scrapper blades. As the beater shaft rotates in the cylinder, the blades scrape frozen product from the cylinder and air is blended into the frozen product. The beater shaft in Gravity Fed Freezers pushes the frozen product from the cylinder as it rotates. The beater shaft is also referred to as an auger or dasher.
