3 Reasons to Invest in Brine Injectors
Industrial meat injectors offer meat processors a variety of benefits. Here are the top three reasons to invest in a brine injector from BAK Food Equipment.
Improved Product Quality: Industrial meat injectors enhance the quality of meat products. Injecting marinades, brines, or flavorings into meat using an industrial injector ensures that the flavors deeply penetrate the meat, resulting in a more flavorful and juicier product. The injector allows for precise and controlled injection, ensuring uniform flavor distribution and consistent product quality.
Industrial injectors also offer high repeatability of injection levels and optional SCADA monitoring for consistent brining from batch to batch. Many injectors available from BAK Food Equipment feature continuous monitoring of injection levels to ensure that any deviations caused by human or technical errors can be immediately corrected. In fact, these systems can identify errors such as incorrect brine or raw meat temperatures, incorrect program parameters, and more.
Highly efficient meat injector pumps allow for smooth brine control, while automated brine mixing and pumping means more consistent brine. A closed brine circulation system ensures optimal sanitation.
Processors that utilize industrial injectors maintain full control of the injection process. Industrial injectors allow for smooth regulation of the speed of the injection head and conveyor. Operators can position meat injector heads 30 to 210 mm above the protein and control injection head speed, timing, and placement.
Industrial injectors also offer superior cleanliness and sanitation. Brine injectors from BAK Food Equipment feature unique injector heads that are easy to access and remove, resulting in reduced sanitation time and better hygiene. Another sanitation feature unique to meat injectors from BAK Food Equipment is an easy-to-clean, multi-stage brine filtration system.
Increased Production Efficiency: Industrial meat injectors offer significant advantages in terms of production efficiency, as they are designed to process large volumes of meat quickly and efficiently. Industrial meat injectors penetrate meat at a rapid rate, reducing the time required for marination or flavoring. This results in increased productivity and throughput, enabling companies to effectively meet customer demand.
Many manufacturers still use a single-needle, manual approach. A multi-needle industrial injector offers myriad benefits beyond just labor reduction. A multi-needle brine injector provides superior brine results compared to manual, single-needle injection. Multi-needle injection results in evenly distributed brine throughout a cut of meat, whether bone-in or boneless red meat, poultry, or fish, reducing curing time and creating a more consistent product. Additionally, most industrial meat injectors feature variable brine pressure, up to 4.5 bars, meaning that brine injection can be optimized for any type of protein.
Cost Savings: By utilizing an industrial meat injector, companies can achieve cost savings in multiple ways. Injecting marinades directly into meat reduces the need for long marination times, thereby saving labor costs and energy consumption associated with extended marination periods. Injecting flavors deep into cuts of meat also reduces product waste by ensuring maximum flavor absorption with less flavoring agent. This ability to process meat efficiently and to meet production demands can lead to economies of scale and reduced overall production costs.
