ProTEN is Marel’s latest linear press meat harvesting system, offering the highest capacity in the business: up to 10,500 pounds of input per hour!
The ProTEN is capable of producing either AMR (advanced meat recovery) at the highest possible yield or the highest possible minced meat quality.
No other system on the market offers you this flexibility and efficiency.
How does it work?
Beef bones are fed into the ProTEN filling chamber (1), from where the main ram transports them to the pressing chamber. Gentle pressure causes the bones to rub the meat off one another and allows it to pass through the filter (2). The ProTEN can be equipped with a high-pressure filter for maximum yield, or an optional coarse filter for optimized meat quality at low pressure.
The bones are retained inside the filter and discharged at the end of the cycle (3). The meat is fed through large diameter pipes into a belt separator to remove sinews, cartilage and the occasional bone particle.
- Reliable, patented low- and high-pressure technology
- Durable seal on the main ram
- Short stroke, virtually no wear and tear
- Very low maintenance costs
- High uptime & long lifespan
The ProTEN accepts beef bones, both primal and deboned parts, such as: neck bones, loin and chunk bones, brisket (breast bones) and rib bones.
The flexibility and adaptability of the ProTEN allows you to produce the perfect raw material for different qualities and quantities of end products. A number of possibilities include hamburgers, corned beef, bologna sausage, sausage rolls, luncheon meat, salami and fresh sausages.
The ProTEN has been realized with the cosponsoring of the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, the province of Limburg, the province of Noord Brabant and the city region Eindhoven (SRE).
