Hosted by John Bauer, JBT Product Manager for Freezers, the JBTConnect webinar will look in detail at the advantages offered by the CleanFREEZE’s incredible features, including external fan motors and Clean-in-Place (CIP) technology.
Radical redesign The newly-launched CleanFREEZE marks a step-forward from the long-standing Northfield SuperTRAK Structure Supported Spiral Freezer, with a system that offers innovations in both hygiene and cleaning. A radical redesign of the freezer has been focused on making the machine easier and faster to clean and has significantly reduced the risk of bacterial growth across the structure.
According to Bauer, the CleanFREEZE takes the original SuperTRAK design and adds new hygienic features, including innovations that differentiate the CleanFREEZE freezer from other spiral freezers and go beyond what is currently available on the wider market.
The JBTConnect Northfield CleanFREEZE Spiral Freezer webinar will take place on June 24, 2021 at 03:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
JBT Avure will be hosting a free HPP webinar on Wednesday March 3 at 10 AM EST to discuss how High Pressure Processing can make a substantial difference for seafood customers, both in terms of yield and profit. Joining Dr Errol Raghubeer, Avure VP of Food Science, will be John Hathaway, CEO of Shuck’s Maine Lobster, who will be telling us first-hand of his experience using HPP with seafood.
A cold pasteurization process, HPP uses ultra-high pressure purified water to keep seafood both shell and pathogen free. Already used in several segments of the food industry to inactivate foodborne pathogens, HPP provides an approved process in the oyster industry for the inactivation of Vibro bacteria which carries a high risk for the consumption of raw oysters and other shellfish.
Crucially, as well as extending shelflife and improving nutrition, mouthfeel and taste, HPP separates 100% of meat from the shells without the use of heat, and increases total meat yield in lobster by 80% compared to heat.
JBT Avure’s Marketing Director for HPP technologies, Lisa Wessels, said: “Our customer John Hathaway fromShuck’s Maine Lobster has experience of the difference HPP has made for lobsters. When you HPP lobster, you get 100% separation of the meat from the shell, whereas you never get that with manual shucking. It also retains more fluid after going through HPP versus manual, so that helps improve the weight and helps make the lobster a little more profitable.”
HPP can be used for all types of shellfish, including oyster, clam and shrimp.
The SVU6800features an innovative mechanical design with an emphasis on productivity and reliability, make it the fastest automatic double clipper in its class. Initially introduced as a prototype at IFFA in 2019, the SVU6800 has since had a design revision and the first machines – sold between late 2020 and early 2021 – have been well received by customers.
Capable of handling products from 50-200 millimeters in diameter, with a top speed of 65 pieces/minute, the unit includes a very powerful voider so it can void through whole muscle products. It can be paired with the JBT Schröder HAMAX800 Whole Muscle Stuffer for a complete whole muscle product solution. For other applications, it features an optional slack-fill module for formed or natural shaped products.
Cost efficient However, what makes the SVU6800 really stand out, says Conrad Faust, Director of Product Management at TIPPER TIE, is the machine’s mechanical design. “The previous model used a lot of pneumatics, so its air consumption was high,” he explains. “This is significant because compressed air is the biggest cost in a lot of plants. This change also eliminated a lot of the sensors that are required in a pneumatic machine. The mechanical design makes it a lot faster, more cost efficient, and more reliable.”
The other great advantage of the SVU6800, continues Faust, is a robust, powerful design, which is targeted for maximum uptime and longer gaps between required maintenance or parts replacement. “The SVU6800 delivers an innovative, hygienic design; powerful, effective functionality, and a very low requirement for maintenance, for an overall lower total cost of ownership” he adds.
We may not all be able to meet face-to-face in Atlanta this year for the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), but JBT-Prime Equipment Group will be hosting a week of JBT Connect Webinars where we showcase new innovations and solutions for protein processors.
The week starts on January 25 at 3:00 PM EST with a New Machines & Innovations webinar where JBT-Prime Equipment will unveil a few surprises as we pull the covers off some new machines and solutions for chicken processors to kick off 2021!
MARS Tracking Solutions from JBT-Prime will feature in the Turkey webinar
“We’ll miss gathering in person with our friends in the Turkey Industry during IPPE Week, but Tipper Tie and Prime Equipment Group are teaming up to unveil new machinery and solutions specifically for the Turkey Industry,” says Prime Equipment Group’s Grant Parsons.
On the JBT-Prime Equipment Group side, the webinar will feature the latest news on equipment updates and solutions specifically for Turkey Suppliers, including an update on the innovative new Turkey Overhead Cut-Up Line and the new line of MARS Efficiency Tracking Solutions to help customers get the most out of their processing lines.
From Tipper-Tie, the webinar will be showcasing ways to increase productivity and lower costs with automated whole-bird solutions, including an all-new higher-throughput netting solutions for increased profits.
JBT has announced the new, free-of-charge JBTConnects Webinar Series for the food processing industry on a variety of wide-ranging topics, all with the idea that a more informed processor is a better processor. Taking place on December 3, TIPPER TIE will be hosting the latest in the series, targeted toward processors looking to increase productivity and efficiency when netting turkeys and hams.
With the festive season upon us once again, demand for sliced hams and frozen turkeys is bound to rise, but almost like never before – amid the ongoing pandemic – food processors are facing pressure on costs and unexpected employee absences.
The new TIPPER TIE TN3004 Netter presents companies with the means of improving automation of turkey and smoked ham netting, while at the same time keeping overall costs low. An upgrade on the existing auto netter, the TN3004 delivers significant production efficiency by reducing netting waste, lowering labor costs, and minimizing product handling.
Cost reduction For customers handling fresh and frozen turkeys or smoked hams, the TN3004 both maximizes automation, which reduces the need for manual labor, both contributing towards an overall cost reduction during the packaging process and making the process safer.
Traditional netted products like whole turkeys, spiral-sliced half hams, bone in turkey breasts, and quarter hams are ideal for the TN3004, while the system can also handle shellfish, mortadella and flower bulbs, among other products.
The JBT TIPPER TIE Increasing Productivity with Automated Netting of Turkeys and Hams webinar will take place on December 3 at 3 PM EST.
