The IOA series needle-type tenderizers are self-adjusting to the thickness of the product, without bone, have a pilgrim’s pace feed system, for the best hygienic guarantees and thanks to the high passage width they can achieve tenderizing designs not achievable with an injector head. In fact, in an injector the choice is whether to tenderize or not and the tenderizing pace coincides with the injector pace, whereas with our tenderizers it is possible to change the tenderizing pace because the product has the ability to slide sideways.
It is possible to adjust from the operator panel the depth of tenderizing, both to go completely through the product and to avoid marbling of the fat, and the needle extraction crossbar, self-adjusting to the thickness of the product, prevents its "squeezing," so as to minimally affect the standard deviation so much pursued with injection.
The tenderizing head can contain about 400, 600 or 900 needles, conformed differently according to the result to be obtained, and can be processed poultry, beef and pork. We propose needles of different shapes, for example, with a sharp head profile or dovetail, or others, depending on the preferred type of product to be processed. Special needles with a sharp inclined end, properly oriented, with a product feed belt, suitable for small products, are used for processing meat for home cooking.
The operator panel allows selection, programming and storage of the mode of operation, from the adjustment of the tenderizing pace to its exclusion, and the internet connection allows remote technical assistance service.
