Provisur Technologies to debut poultry processing technology
by Meat&Poultry Staff
MOKENA, Ill. – Provisur Technologies announced the company would introduce new innovations for poultry processors from its Beehive, Cashin, Formax and Weiler family of brands at the 2011 IPE.
The exhibit will highlight food safety, low cost of ownership, durability and precision performance from raw material to finished product, according to the company.
For example, Beehive will introduce its BeeMax Tissue Recovery Systems for producing MSC, textured, ground and de-sinewed product. The BeeMax Systems combine high output chamber configurations and advanced chamber patterns with the efficiency of a modular system concept. The system eliminates pre-breaking requirements with chicken and features a low in-feed height. Product quality is enhanced by adjustable in-feed pressure, slow auger speed and Beehive tapered head technology that prevents chamber matting and improves the quality of the recovered product.
Also exhibiting at IPE, Formax will display the Maxum700, which offers poultry processors the industry’s largest capacity with speeds up to 120 strokes per minute and production rates up to 10,000 pounds (4536 kg) an hour, according to the company. In a recent poultry installation, a Maxum700 with Servo STS reduced existing equipment and labor by 50 percent without impacting quality.
Weiler debuts two of its latest innovations for efficient mixing and grinding at the IPE. The Weiler VM36 Vacuum Mixer is 36-cubic feet (1,000 liter) and uses a counter-rotating or similar rotating paddle system designed for efficient mixing of raw materials, including spices, additives and liquids, and delivering the most consistent end product possible, according to the company. Additionally, the VM36 uses the processor’s choice of paddles or ribbons within the mixer tub for application versatility.
The heavy-duty grinding innovation of the Weiler OMNI V 1107 Multi-Grinder will also be on the exhibition floor. According to Provisur, the OMNI V was developed with innovative features and processing flexibility in mind, including independently controlled feed screws and Weiler’s Balanced Flow Technology. Balanced Flow offers more efficient handling during grinding, in addition to consistent particle definition and improved texture.
