Properly prepared, the meat mass can result in an infinite number of tasty end products such as nuggets, meatballs and burgers.
By offering the ideal mix of equipment and software, Marel has configured several specialized poultry meat preparation lines. They are the perfect link between the end of the secondary process and the beginning of processes for the manufacture of convenience food items.
Marel's specialized full-line nugget preparation system provides ideal conditions for the production of uniform and tasty nuggets of the highest quality. High-end mixing and grinding machines work together to prepare the meat in the best possible way. An infeed conveyor or a ColumnLoader supplies the raw meat material. After the pre-grinding process in a CombiGrind machine, ground meat is conveyed with a GirafConveyor to the vacuum Mixer, which gently mixes the product. If needed, nitrogen or CO2 can be added to obtain the correct temperature for the forming process. Once mixed, a Marel RevoPortioner forms the meat into uniform nuggets. This process particularly benefits from meat, suitably prepared in the meat preparation line. That is because it is essential that the meat has the proper structure and a consistent temperature after the forming process to guarantee uniform nuggets.
