The new Marel Multihead Weigher IQF Poultry
Based on many positive user experiences of the Multihead Weigher series, Marel developed an entirely new machine exclusively for the poultry industry, which Marel SA will showcase at the 2012 AVI Africa exhibition to be held at Emperors Palace between the 29th and 31st of May 2012.
Robust, easy to use and designed for optimum throughput with minimum giveaway, the Marel Multihead Weigher IQF Poultry handles poultry cuts at high capacity and with great accuracy.
Rodney Macer-Wright, General Manager, Marel SA says, the Marel Multihead Weigher series of machines are known for their reliability and gained their excellent reputation based on their solid construction, compact design, easy-to-use, multi-lingual user interface, and extremely low giveaway.
“All this was taken into account when work began on developing the new Marel Multihead Weigher IQF Poultry. As a result, these proven features have been transferred onto the new machine and have been used to create the perfect IQF poultry solution” Macer-Wright adds.
Designed to readily withstand the harsh environment of frozen product handling, the unit’s large, new and highly versatile 7-litre hoppers can handle all kinds of batch sizes, and are designed to prevent products sticking to them.
A weighing system that includes an overload and anti-shock system helps extend the service life of the unit, as well as reducing downtime and cutting operation costs to a minimum. The AFA (Automatic Frequency Adjustment) adjusts the line vibrators automatically, in order to maintain the highest possible throughput.
Last but not least, the Marel Multihead Weigher IQF Poultry can be dismantled without tools, making it very easy to clean and maintain, and a particularly safe, hygienic solution.
The main benefits of the new Poultry solution include:
- High throughput: Consistent, maximum-capacity product flow, thanks to Automatic Feeder Adjustment (AFA) technology
- Extremely low giveaway
- Easy to operate
- Very hygienic
- All-time low maintenance costs
“Whether you have a small or large poultry processing plant with a manual, semi or fully automatic integrated process, Marel will be able to help you find the right processing solution, by combining extensive international poultry processing knowledge to suit your specific local needs” Concludes Macer-Wright.
