Breading for poultry, fish and vegetable snacks is big business, but for processors to make an impact on the market, consistency in the quality of the breading is equally as critical as the meat, fish or vegetable contained within. JBT’s full range of coating and frying solutions are designed with quality, capacity, reliability and repeatability with superior efficiency in mind.
A quality product results when the same batter/breading consistency is applied to products time and time again. The flexibility of JBT products allows for adjustments based on the product type or recipe requirements, according to Bob Stacy, JBT Divisional Product Manager for Coating and Frying.
Stacy singles out three JBT products as standouts:
A fully automatic continuous mixer, the ProMix is the first step toward delivering a quality product.The ProMix is designed to maintain adjustable batter mix ratios andoffers consistency in cooling and viscosity control.
The Heritage Breader – Super Duty is easily adjustable for multiple product applications with ease of adjustments and settings for repeatability resulting in product consistency and quality.
The TFF-IV THERMoFIN Fryer, boasts high efficiency, offers a new option for PLC control and repeatability. “The TFF-IV is a high thermal efficiency cool-heat fryer, which, is between 30-40% more efficient than a gas or electric fryer,” says Stacy.
JBT coating and frying solutions are typically used by customers in the poultry and processed food industries, in the latter case for frying and coating a wide variety of vegetable-based appetizers, including onion rings, cheese sticks, mushrooms, cauliflower and veggie patties.
Global food processing technology solutions provider, JBT will be showcasing the Schröder IMAX 400 SMARTline Injector at this year’s Gulfood Manufacturing. JBT acquired the German-based manufacturer in February this year to extend its inline portfolio of portioning, coating, cooking, searing, chilling and freezing technology.
A pioneer in curing technology for over 50 years, the Schröder injector is designed to deal with a wide variety of products, including red meat, poultry products and fish, and can be modified to inject special brine recipes or challenging ingredients.
“The injector accuracy and high yield is based on 50 years of experience in the curing industry, along with research we conducted with the University of Applied Sciences in Lemgo in Germany. It’s available with two manifold variants, a retraction block for bone-in products and an optional tenderising block. The injection rate can vary between 10% and 100%.”
All Schröder injectors have a standard deviation of up to 0.5 – 1.5 depending on the product. The touchscreen controller, which will be operational on the stand, can set pump performance, speed and type of injection (one or two-way injection) with the ability to store up to 25 recipes.
“The injector has been designed for flexible configuration to suit the process and production conditions,” says Michael. “Many customers come to test their own recipes at our test facility in Werther in Germany, where they can trial the injector on various raw materials.”
The Schröder IMAX injectors can be integrated with JBT’s range of Frigoscandia GYRoCOMPACT® Spiral Chilling and Freezing Systems. JBT’s other brands include DSI® portioning systems, Stein® coating systems, Double D® cookers and searer/grill markers and Formcook® contact and convection ovens.
JBT will be exhibiting in Hall 4, Stand D4-44 at Gulfood Manufacturing 2018 at the Dubai World Trade Centre from November 6-8.
The JBT Tipper Tie SVF1800, a cost-effective, high-speed automatic double clipper that helps eliminate residue for sausage processors will be the focus of JBT’s participation in the upcoming SÜFFA 2018 trade exhibition, an event which brings together much of the meat industry from across Germany for three days in Stuttgart.
Taking place at the Messe Stuttgart exhibition halls from 20-22 October, the long-established show is one of the most important meeting points for the meat industry, covering the complete range of products and services for craft butchers and processors.
In the case of JBT, whose Tipper Tie unit will be exhibiting for the duration of the show, the SVF1800 will be the undoubted highlight; a system which can be connected to all conventional filling machines to produce individual, string, and ring sausages in precisely sealed portions without sausage residue in the casing ends. The SVF1800 can also be used for packaging semi-finished confectionery products, cheese, soups, and non-food products.
Jörg Nold, JBT Tipper Tie’s Director of Sales for the EMEA and APAC regions, says SÜFFA will provide an ideal forum to showcase the SVF1800 and other systems to a wide audience. “SÜFFA is an interesting exhibition for growing, mid-sized customers,” he says. “The whole of Germany will be there, as well as some exporters, which will include companies specialised in sausage production, meat processors, butchers and cheese processors.
“The SVF1800 is our highlight for this year and we will be inviting customers from across Germany to learn more about the system.”
JBT Tipper Tie will be exhibiting in Hall 9, Stand 9D31 at SÜFFA 2018 at Messe Stuttgart from October 20-22.
