Flexibility is often a key goal when processors approach Provisur about creating a customized and integrated system designed to simplify the production of multiple products, including ground beef patties and bricks, cooked meatballs and other formed products.
This solution was created using our Weiler® brand grinding and mixing equipment feeding raw material to Formax® brand formers. Keeping the needs for flexibility efficiency and product quality foremost in our design, the system can utilize tempered frozen and fresh products in a wide range of percentages.
Equipment in this system includes:
- Lift and pivot combo dumper with pallet retract
- MH80 metering hopper
- 1612 Frozen block grinder
- 1109 Fresh pre-grinder
- M7225 Mixer with load cells and sample grinder (2)
- M360B Mixer with CO2 and load cells (2)
- BPF60 Versagrind 11-6
- Ultra 26 Former (2)
- Various material handling equipment
All systems are fully automated with PLC control and are extremely labor efficient. Consistent homogeneity is achieved via a counter-rotating/overlapping paddle design that transfers very little mechanical energy to the product. This configuration of equipment allows our customer to efficiently pre-blend raw materials to distinct lean points or desired product mixtures and to precisely control final blend to a given lean point or to a specific product recipe.
The final grind is accomplished using our VersaGrind® technology, ensuring a final product with superior particle definition and improved performance at the final cooking stage. Two Ultra 26 Formers help maximize the throughput of the entire system and ensure a high quality product.
